The week of January 22, 2018
There’s a sexy new attorney heading to Salem, albeit it not for a while. Gilles Marini has been cast as Ted, a lawyer who gets involved with Kate (Lauren Koslow).
The character is slated to be onscreen for a few months and begins airing in June. Marini, perhaps best known for his role as Dante, Samantha’s attractive neighbor, in Sex and the City: The Movie, also had roles in Switched at Birth and Devious Maids.
Andre DiMera may have met his demise, but it doesn’t mean the end of the line for Thaao Penghlis. Word is the actor will continue to air over the next several weeks in dream sequences, visions, and flashbacks.
Penghlis, who first appeared as Andre in 1983, returned to the role full-time in 2015. He also played Tony DiMera on the soap, a role he created back in 1981. The character was killed off in 2009. Speculation is that that role could eventually be revived down the line.
Days of our Lives (DOOL) airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for air times.
