Who’s coming and who’s going from Days of our Lives (DOOL)? Are any of your favorite performers from yesteryear returning to the daytime drama, this week, or in the not too far off future?
Days of our Lives C&G News
Have any new actors or actresses been cast on the show in contract, recurring, or day player roles? Are any well-remembered stars from other soaps, past or present, about to join the Days of our Lives fold in surprising new parts? Here’s the latest casting news from the NBC soap.
The week of August 2, 2021
Rumors abound that Kyle Lowder will be reprising his role as Rex Brady. The actor shared a photo of himself on Instagram sitting in a hair and makeup room that looked suspiciously like the one at the DAYS Burbank studio complex. Adding fuel to the fire was his caption: “Back to work.” Adding even more fuel to the fire is the fact that the post has been taken down. Lowder made his last appearance on the soap in March of 2021 when he helped (in a way) Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) destroy his ex, Sarah Horton’s (Linsey Godfrey), relationship with Xander (Paul Telfer), ushering her exit.
Viewers holding out hope for a Will Horton (Chandler Massey) and Sonny Kiriakis return to Salem won’t be getting their wish, according to Freddie Smith, who played Sonny. On the YouTube podcast he co-hosts with his wife, The Freddie and Alyssa Show, Smith explained that he’d come to a difficult decision since getting married and relocating to Florida. That is, if and when the powers-that-be at DAYS were to call with an offer, “I would not go back,” said Smith.
