Watch! Jackée Harry’s New Role as Paulina Sure to Shake Things Up on Days

Sitcom star’s new role on NBC soap.

Jackée Harry has revealed that she’s taking on a new role on Days of our Lives as Paulina, who is new to Salem, and returning to reconnect with her family, the Carvers. Harry began filming in December and her episodes should air starting March 1, 2021. The Emmy award-winning actress, who is known for her roles on sitcoms such as 227, and Sister Sister, first made her foray into soaps on Another World as Lily Mason. In January 2020, Days of our Lives’ head-writer Ron Carlivati noticed a side-by-side photo that Harry posted on her Twitter feed of Bonnie Raitt and Suzanne Rogers (Maggie Horton). She commented, “Has Bonnie Raitt been moonlighting as Maggie from Days of our Lives for the past 20 years?”

Fan speculation includes the hope that Paulina actually winds up as a love interest for poor unlucky in love, Abe Carver (James Reynolds), though if she is family, that should also perk things up, considering she’s quite the character. Let Days of our Lives know your thoughts on this new character and how you think it’ll affect the story in the comments below, and take a look at Harry’s announcement on Today, with Hoda & Jenna, in this short clip.

Watch the video below from NBC Days’ Instagram feed. Salem won’t know what hit it! Wait for Harry’s first appearance as Paulina March 1.
