The week of December 9, 2019
Two prominent cast members, Linsey Godfrey and Greg Vaughan, who portray Sarah and Eric respectively, are heading off the canvas for a few weeks in a move dictated by storyline. Their characters will head to Boston to consult a specialist about their baby daughter, Mickey, who has been diagnosed with cancer.
There’s a new, older David in town. Rafe’s (Galen Gering) “son” — the child born to the late Jordan (Chrishell Hartley) is now being portrayed by Caleb and Kyler Ends. If the two youngsters look familiar, it’s because they previously played Maxie’s (Kirsten Storms) son James on General Hospital. The role of David was previously portrayed by twins Jaxton and Dexter Ellis.
Days of our Lives History
DOOL made its debut in 1965 and is one of the longest-running daytime soap operas in American history. It has outlasted other soaps to become a mainstay for many households. Needless to say, five decades of storylines have kept viewers locked in and wanting more.
From Stefano DiMera’s (Joseph Mascolo) evil schemes to Victor Kiriakis’s (John Aniston) one-liners to the epic love story of Bo (Peter Reckell) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso), DAYS knows how to entertain and keep fans coming back for more. Sadly, times are shifting and daytime soap operas are shrinking.
Bringing the Drama
It is one of only four remaining soap operas currently on the air. The other three daytime dramas include General Hospital (GH), The Young and the Restless (YR), and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB). DAYS airs weekdays on NBC. Check your local listings for air times.
