Alison Sweeney and James Scott Finish Filming on Days of our Lives

Alison Sweeney Leaves after 21 years as Sami Brady

In January of this year, Alison Sweeney announced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she would finish up her 21 year stint as Sami Brady this year.  The 37 year old actress started on Days of our Lives at 16.  Alison Sweeney gave fans and Days of our Lives management plenty of notice about her intentions.  She filmed her last scenes as Sami Brady during the week on May 19, 2014.

Sweeney , who is also in her seventh year hosting NBC’s The Biggest Loser, wanted to spend more time with her family.

James Scott Departs after 8 Years as EJ DiMera

Although it had been speculated by fans that James Scott, too, may leave the soap opera, it came as a surprise to learn in early May that Scott was not only also leaving Days of our Lives but had already filmed his final scenes as EJ DiMera.  James Scott portrayed EJ DiMera for 8 years and decided to change his life direction after a vacation in the Amazon.

How do Sami and EJ leave Salem?

The big question now is how EJ and Sami leave Salem?  Will they ride off into the sunset together?  Or will their departure have a little more soap opera drama to it?

Speculation is already rife that EJ dies after a photo circulated of Alison Sweeney on set with an urn and a picture of EJ in the background.  That remains in the realm of rumor for the moment and with Days of our Lives filming about 3 months in advance of airdates fans have plenty of time to speculate.
