In the coming weeks a storyline involving the characters of Nick Fallon and Gabi Hernandez gets physically violent and rumors are now swirling about the possibility that as a result of the storyline, Nick’s portrayer, Blake Berris, may be leaving the “Days of our Lives” canvas.
When asked by Soap Opera Network during today’s “A Day of DAYS” fan event at Universal CityWalk Hollywood about his status with the show Berris was unable to comment, but on the storyline itself he did say that Nick is just reminding Gabi (Camila Banus) of the passion between them.
Drake Hogestyn is not only returning to NBC’s “Days of our Lives” in the early part of the new year as his iconic character, John Black, he’s also returning to contract status with the daytime drama series. The actor confirmed his new status with the soap to Soap Opera Network during today’s “A Day of Days” fan event at Universal CityWalk Hollywood.
Hogestyn’s return to “DAYS” couldn’t have come at a more pressing time as the actor also shared with us that on November 22 his family is set to close on the sale of their house and they were all packed and ready to move out of LA!
Word of Hogestyn’s return to “DAYS” first came to light in October. The actor confirmed his return via Twitter on Halloween. “Happy All Hallow’s Eve!” he wrote. “The Treat?…I’m back in Salem!” But the Trick? “I sold my house and have no place to live!” he shared. “Now that’s scary! Yikes!”
During today’s “A Day of Days” fan event at Universal CityWalk Hollywood, actor Freddie Smith shared with Soap Opera Network that Guy Wilson will replace Chandler Massey in the role of Will Horton beginning in January 2014. The actor noted that the transition from one actor to the next will be seamless as the character of Will is not leaving town only to return portrayed by a different actor.
Word of Wilson replacing Massey came to light in early September, when “DAYS” actress Jen Lilley (Theresa Donovan) let slip Wilson’s name as Massey’s replacement during an interview .
A more specific last airdate for Massey and first airdate for Wilson are unknown at this time.
