Performer of the Week
The storyline of Abe's (James Reynolds) amnesia and kidnapping came to a head on Days of Our Lives this week, starting with Jerry's (Terrell Ransom Jr.) confession to Lani (Sal Stowers). That set off a chain of events that eventually led to Abe being rescued and his kidnapped nurse, Whitley (Kim Coles), being apprehended. Whitley had a break with reality that led to her trying to kill both her and Abe, but they were saved by the arrival of Marlena (Deidre Hall), Rafe (Galen Gering), and Jada (Elia Cantu). Everyone involved did amazing work, but Coles' portrayal of Whitley truly stood out as something very special.
Everyone knows that Kim Coles has been a brilliant comedic actress for over 30 years, but this week we had a look at her dramatic chops, and we were blown away. The way she played Whitley's breakdown and went in and out of reality and time was nothing short of amazing. Fans went from rooting for Whitley to get the punishment coming to him to hoping for a redemption arc for her after she gets the help she needs. It takes a special actress to pull that off, especially with soap fans, but Kim Coles has done it, and that is why we are naming her our Performer of the Week! Congratulations, Kim. Hopefully, we haven't seen the last of Nurse Whitley in Salem!
