Jen Lilley’s Instagram post saying bon voyage to her “Days of Our Lives” character Theresea Donovan included several screenshots of Theresa interacting with other characters. Her caption continued with, “To the cast and crew at @dayspeacock, I love you forever. You’re my family. And to the best fans a girl could ask or hope for: remember there is no pit so deep you could ever find yourself in where God’s love cannot find you still. You are never beyond redemption. You are called by grace and marked with love. Thank you for supporting me on this decade-long journey.” The fans were overcome with grief over her exit, many of whom could not even imagine another person playing the part, as one lovingly wrote, “Seriously, when thinking of Theresa Donovan, you are the only one I can think of playing her!!”
Lilley’s followers continued their praise by being glad for her brief return, but then wishing her well in her next endeavors. “It was so wonderful to see you back in Days!” responded one avid fan, who continued with, “Like a family reunion seeing y’all all together! Wish you all the best with life & will continue to follow your posts. I’m disappointed that Days is replacing you.” Many echoed the sentiment that Lilley’s portrayal of Theresa is the definitive version of the character.
One response exemplified the fan love, stating, “We will miss you. There is only one Theresa.”
