Zoey Burge on DAYS OF OUR LIVES looks a little different now but it’s still the same character. Actress Kelly Thiebaud debuted in the role on April 16, but by May 14, Alyshia Ochse stepped into the attorney’s shoes. And both of them have been on DAYS before in different roles! Back in 2011, Thiebaud launched her daytime career playing Alicia for a few episodes, and Ochse played Nurse Sara back in 2009.
Zoey Burge is the attorney hired to represent Evan Frears on his murder and kidnapping charges, and seeing as how he has confessed (under duress) to murdering Jordan Ridgeway and he was arrested for kidnapping their son, David, she’s got her work cut out for her! Of course, Evan’s real name is Christian Maddox, and he’s the son of the notorious international supervillain Orpheus, who took responsibility for the kidnapping, so that was easily taken care of. But Zoey is certain she can get him acquitted of murder as well, and Evan was released into her custody. Then it was revealed that the reason she’s representing him is that she’s Evan’s sister!
Although Zoey has admitted to Evan that she doesn’t entirely trust their father, she followed Orpheus’ orders and filed for custody of David for herself to keep him in the family. She later pressed Evan to share the painful secret that was forcing him to do their father’s bidding and after she failed to keep him from going to prison, shared the truth with Rafe Hernandez that Orpheus had actually caused the car crash that took the lives of Adrienne Kiriakis and Sarah Horton’s child.
Stay tuned to see what happens next!
