Look out, Salem, Chrishell Hartley is returning to DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Jordan Ridgeway! “Like sands through the hourglass,” the actress tweeted after the news broke. Of course, because the NBC sudser tapes so far ahead, she won’t actually be appearing on screen until early 2019.
Don’t be confused by the name chance. This is the same Chrishelle who went by her maiden name of Stause when she appeared as Amanda on ALL MY CHILDREN and Bethany on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. She married daytime alum and THIS IS US star Justin Hartley (ex-Adam, Y&R) in October of 2017.
Jordan first appeared on DAYS in August of 2013 as a physical therapist hired by Kate to treat Rafe. She and the cop started a romance, but Kate was suspicious of her and dug into her shady past. Jordan was stunned when her brother, Ben Weston, arrived in Salem, but things got worse when Kate brought their father, Clyde Weston, to town. She was horrified to see him again and wanted to keep him away from her brother, but Clyde threatened to tell Ben that Jordan was responsible for the accident that killed their mother, so she backed off.
After a brief fling with Chad, Jordan accepted a job offer in England in 2015, and hasn’t been seen since. What brings her back to Salem? Jordan wasn’t around for Ben’s reign of terror as the Necktie Killer, so she and her brother would certainly have a lot to catch up on!
