“Days of our Lives” actor Drake Hogestyn (John Black) delivered a very happy Halloween treat to fans today: He tweeted confirmation that he is indeed returning to the NBC sudser!
Get ready to scream in fright (or perhaps delight), because Soap Opera Network managed to get our hands on some deliciously devilish Halloween pictures from a few of your favorite “Days of Our Lives” and “The Young and the Restless” stars! From a pretty princess to a sinister slicer, these actors really know how to dress the part! But do you dare read on to find out witch was witch? If so, be warned: It’s hair-raising, spirit-satisfying fun!
Today marks the end of a four-year chapter for “Days of our Lives” fan favorite Casey Deidrick (Chad DiMera), who entered Salem as Will’s (Chandler Massey’s) hated rival back in 2009 and is now exiting the canvas as a much-loved and integral character, son of Stefano (Joseph Mascolo). In honor of the occasion, Soap Opera Network spoke with Deidrick’s onscreen love, Kate Mansi (Abigail), who tearfully recalls taping her final scene with Deidrick and opens up about how she truly feels about the star’s exit!
Deep down in the basement of NBC’s The Burbank Studios in Los Angeles, beneath the busy and hectic world of “Days of our Lives’” Salem, lies a cozy dressing room that offers a warm and comfortable respite from cameras, producers, directors, publicists, wardrobe and all of the other distractions of a daytime television set. The lighting is low, candles flicker, and there’s a plush, body hugging beanbag that just begs any visitor to sit back, sink in and possibly take one of the best naps of all time. We at Soap Opera Network could have fallen into the beckoning trap, but the dressing room’s owner, Shawn Christian (Daniel Jonas), was way too excited to discuss his current storyline and his new television project, “Addicts Anonymous,” to allow any snoozing to happen. And as soon as the passionate actor launched into conversation, there was no desire for napping on our part, either! Read on for the exciting details Christian shared. But be warned: You’ll be on the edge of your seats (or, if you’re lucky, your beanbags).

For all intents and purposes, “Days of our Lives” Galen Gering (Rafe Hernandez) has had one of the best gigs in Los Angeles as of late. Not only was he getting paid to hang out in a bed all day while his alter ego was in a coma, he’s had the recent fortune of playing the recovery part of the story, which is a physical challenge that rarely falls into an actor’s lap. The result: Some standout scenes of Rafe re-learning to walk that prove Gering has some acting legs to stand on!
