Law & Order: SVU vet Tamara Tunie will trade in her scalpel for a gavel this fall on NBC’s Days of Our Lives.
TVLine has exclusively learned that the actress has landed a short — but pivotal! — arc on the soap in November, playing Salem’s tough-as-nails judge Weston. Details surrounding Tunie’s guest spot are being kept close to the vest, but we can tell you that she will make a decision that impacts John Black’s (the returning Drake Hogestyn) life in a major, major way.
No stranger to daytime, Tunie made a name for herself playing attorney Jessica Griffin on the late CBS sudser As the World Turns.
Tunie makes her Days debut on Friday, Nov. 18.
Law and Order!
When the newly returned John gets into trouble, it will be soap opera vet Tamara Tunie who decides his fate as Judge Weston. Tunie is no stranger to portraying smart, savvy women. Over the course of two decades, she was attorney Jessica Griffin on As The World Turns and since 2000 has portrayed Dr. Melinda Warner on Law & Order: SVU. The actress hits Salem on Friday, November 18, and Wednesday, November 23.
