A face familiar to CBS soap fans is moving to Salem as Linsey Godfrey joins the cast of DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Sarah Horton! The actress previously played Caroline Spencer on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL from 2012-18, earning three Daytime Emmy Award nominations for her work over the years. “What a lucky birthday girl I am!” she enthused on Instagram when the news broke. “I’m so excited and honored to announce I’ve joined the amazing cast of DAYS!”
The character of Sarah Horton was born in 1981 to Maggie Horton. She was conceived through artificial insemination and while it was originally believed that Evan Whyland was her father, it was later revealed that the babydaddy was actually Dr. Neil Curtis. Although Sarah will always consider Mickey Horton to be her dad because he was the man who actually raised her. She left town with her sister, Melissa, and they settled in Nashville. Sarah made occasional returns to Salem, but hasn’t been seen since 1991.
What brings Sarah back home? The soap isn’t letting any storyline details leak quite yet, but since Godfrey is already on set taping episodes, you can expect her to make her first appearance on screen sometime this fall, given DAYS’ advanced shooting schedule. So stay tuned to see what drama she gets mixed up in upon her return!
