According to Soap Opera Digest, Daniel Cosgrove has joined the cast of NBC’s “Days of our Lives” in the newly created role of Aiden. “This is the first time that I’ve ever played a daytime character that wasn’t played by someone else,” said the actor to the magazine of his previous roles as Scott Chandler (“All My Children“), Chris Hughes (“As The World Turns“) and Bill Lewis (“Guiding Light“), all played by several actors prior to his portrayal.
Per the magazine, Cosgrove began filming his scenes in September and will first air in late January. “The cast, both female and male, are so beautiful, but they’re also so damn talented that it’s a little intimidating,” added Cosgrove on his joining the soap. The publication states it’ll have more with the actor in a future issue.
