Eileen Davidson has played some memorable roles, including Kristen on “Days of Our Lives.” But the accomplished actress cut her soap opera teeth as Ashley Abbott, the beautiful and smart daughter of Dina and John Abbott.
On her Facebook page July 31 Davidson announced that she has left “Days of Our Lives” and that her last day of taping was July 16. This could be good news for “Young and the Restless” fans, as Ashley Abbott’s return to Genoa City would make for a great story line now that Michelle Stafford has exited the role of Phyllis Newman.
Daniel Romalotti, Phyllis’s son, has decided to move her to a care facility in Georgia, which will leave Jack Abbott heart broken. Jack has a history of prescription drug abuse and without Phyllis to hold his hand and get him through the tough times; Jack may just turn to prescription drugs again to dull the pain.
Enter Ashley Abbott, younger sister of Jack Abbott. Ashley is a take charge kind of woman, and if anyone can get Jack through one of the most difficult times of his life, it is Ashley. Now that younger sister Tracey and baby brother Billy are all living in Genoa City again, it is the perfect time for Ashley to make a grand entrance and for the Abbott siblings to gather around their older brother.

- Eileen Davidson leaves behind Kristen on “DOOL” but will she be back?
Though Eileen Davidson has said she has no immediate plans, she also said she is not retiring. Soap operas generally tape six to eight weeks in advance, and Davidson indicated that she will appear on “DOOL” through November. Assuming that “The Young and the Restless” signs Davidson immediately, Ashley Abbott could be back in town just in time for Thanksgiving and just in time for a great story line involving siblings Jack, Tracey and Billy.
