Tragedy Strikes Days of Our Lives Alum


Taylor Sprietler, who played Mia McCormick on “Days of Our Lives” from 2009-2010 is living a daughter’s worst nightmare.

She revealed on her Instagram account yesterday that her father took his own life. The actress began her post with:

“Today my heart is hurting. My dad took his own life due to his struggles with depression. I am deeply saddened and will miss his dearly as he was my inspiration and biggest cheerleader.”

The actress said she hopes to help the suicide prevention cause. See her entire message below.

Sprietler spent one year bringing Mia to life in Salem. The teenage character gave her baby to Nicole (Arianne Zucker) to give her a better life. That baby was later revealed to be Grace, the young daughter of Chad DiMera. Grace actually ended up with Sami (Alison Sweeney) when Nicole switched babies and died of meningitis.

Soap Hub wishes Sprietler and her family our condolences.
