"Days of Our Lives" fans are used to seeing powerful female characters on the soap opera. It appears that the trend continues with newcomer Jessica Serfaty, who recently joined the cast as Sloan Petersen. Fans first met Sloan when she found herself in the bed of Salem's very own playboy Alex Kiriakis (Robert Scott Wilson).

Viewers quickly learned that Sloan is straightforward and doesn't make any apologies for what she says or does to get what she wants.
