On “Days of Our Lives,” Gwen soon realizes her real existence is a fantasy. The audience will remember how she fell in love with Charming Dimitri and how he reciprocated.
But their union is merely a façade. She is merely a means to an end for Dimitri. Gwen has already started to doubt her beloved prince. She will soon learn the truth about his intentions for his inheritance.
Oh! This could hurt even more than Dimitri’s betrayal because her best friend Leo is having an affair with her husband. Gwen would be devastated to learn of this double betrayal and even seek retribution.
Who Is Gwen In Days Of Our Lives?
In “Days of Our Lives,” Emily O’Brien portrays the imaginary Gwendolyn “Gwen” Rizczech. Tiffany raised Gwen, but due to her drug addiction, Tiffany occasionally lost track of her. Nuns reared Gwen after Tiffany passed away.
She used to read everything Charles Dickens wrote. She had a tonsillectomy at age 11, and her first experience with alcohol came at age 13.
Jake and Gwen were dating while he was living in Philadelphia. Gwen is close with Claire Brady, and after finding out that they both dislike Gabi Hernandez, Gwen also grew close with Chad DiMera.
Later on, it was learned that Gwen was behind the drugging and admission of Chad Deveraux’s wife, Abigail, to a Florida mental hospital in early 2020.
