It’s been over one full year now since Theo Carver bid Salem adieu to seek medical treatment in South Africa. But today, actor Kyler Pettis has a reason to celebrate.
Happy Birthday, Kyler Pettis
That’s because he was born on October 16, 1992, in Laguna Hills, California, which means that he is turning 28 years old today! The Saddleback College graduate initially pursued a career in modeling after being signed with Otto Models but he quickly turned his attention towards acting.
His first role was on the web series Old Dogs & New Tricks, which featured a plethora of daytime television veterans including Thom Bierdz, Ian Buchanan, and Kathryn Leigh Scott. Subsequent parts followed including the short film Secret’s Out and Ray Donovan.
In August of 2015, Pettis was hired to take over the role of Theodore “Theo” Brandon Carver on the NBC daily serial Days of Our Lives. He was replacing incumbent Terrell Ransom Jr. — who had been playing the part since 2008 — after the character was SORAS’d.
Pettis remained in the part of Theo — who was the only high-functioning autistic character on daytime — until his storyline-dictated exit in 2018 after preconceived prejudice on the part of a responding police officer, JJ Deveraux, caused him to shoot.
The same year as his exit from DAYS, Pettis appeared in the film M.F.A. a thriller film which co-starred Francesa Eastwood, the daughter of silver screen legend Clint Eastwood and former Edge of Night star Francis Fisher.
