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 Days of our Lives fold in surprise new parts? Here’s the latest casting news from the NBC soap.
The week of April 5, 2021
After seven years, a popular DiMera is set to be returning to the Salem fold. However, there is a caveat. He won’t be played by the actor who rose to daytime fame in the role.
Word is that the long-missing EJ DiMera will soon be resurfacing. The character, last played by James Scott, was “killed off” in 2014, but deemed alive in 2018. The role will reportedly be played by Dan Feuerriegel, this time around. The actor is best known for his role as Agron in the Starz series Spartacus and has also appeared as Gavin in the series Home and Away.
