The week of July 23, 2018
Soap hopper Jordi Vilasuso, last seen as Dario Hernandez on Days of Our Lives, has nabbed a new role.
The actor has been cast as Rey, a mysterious stranger who immediately finds himself caught up in a major drama.
Vilasuso, who has also appeared on All My Children (as Griffin Castillo) and Guiding Light (as Tony Santos), is set to debut on Y&R in August.
Thad Luckinbill, who recently popped up again as the “deceased” J.T. Hellstrom — or so it seemed, has finished his latest stint as Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) ex-husband. The actor returned to the soap for a four-month run in December 2017.
