That was Dan Wells playing “Dr. Dunn,” the Salem University Hospital physician that Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) insisted “the dying” Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) receive a second opinion from, and who confirmed his “brain tumor” and “terminal diagnosis.”
If the actor looks familiar, it’s because Wells previously appeared on the soap for a long arc back in 2005, when he subbed for the then-pregnant Alison Sweeney. He played Stan when Sami went undercover as a man to get revenge on her enemies. Once again, Wells was portraying a disguised Sami.
