“Days of our Lives” stars Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso portray Bo and Hope Brady, arguably one of the most popular pairings ever seen on television or in movies. Recently, it was announced that the NBC daytime drama series would be going through creative changes both in front of and behind the camera with the ouster of head writer Dena Higley and co-executive producer Gary Tomlin along with several actors including Crystal Chappell (Carly Manning), Louise Sorel (Vivian Alamain), Bren Foster (Quinn Hudson), Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe Lane), Tamara Braun (Taylor Walker), and Francisco San Martin (Dario Hernandez). Now with former “Passions” scribes Marlene McPherson and Darrell Ray Thomas in as co-head writers, what can fans expect for their favorite duo?
“Let’s just say the Bo and Hope the fans are used to…they’re back! And recognizable again. We’re so excited because we really missed playing those characters,” said Alfonso in an interview with Soap Opera Network, while on the red carpet of the “38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.” Reckell echoed Alfonso’s comments with “the two of us have been through a lot of regime changes…producers and head writers, and I think this is the first time where we feel like home.”
