Los Angeles CA-- The part of Michelle Obama is being recast by producers of the soap-opera 'All My Days'. Halle Berry will take over the part of the First Lady on September 1. The present actress for the part, Delores Goons, will be leaving the hit series.
Producers were looking for a younger actress for the role, and Ms. Berry was available. They also wanted a First Lady with a more "sportier look". Ratings for the hit show have dropped sharply, and producers wanted a new face.
Producers had nothing but praise for Delores Goons work as Michelle Obama. Ms. Goons won a Daytime Emmy last season for her performance as the first African-American First Lady. Ms. Goons has been a familiar face to TV viewers for many years. She starred in many laundry detergent and dog food commercials before landing the role of Michelle Obama in 2006.
'All My Days', is also about to take a more melodramatic turn this Fall, according to producers of the soap-opera. Viewers can expect some marital infidelity and drug issues for the November sweeps.
