THE SCOOP

Beginning Monday, May 8, actor Peter Porte will reprise his “Beyond Salem: Chapter One” character, Dimitri von Leuschner, on “Days of our Lives.” His initial scenes will be with Lauren Koslow’s Kate Roberts, who has been held captive in recent episodes and is now meeting her captor for the first time.

Originally introduced to viewers as ISA agent Kyle Graham during the five-episode run of “Beyond Salem: Chapter One” in 2021, it was later revealed that Kyle was Dimitri von Leuschner, a double agent working with Drew (Shane’s twin brother, both played by Charles Shaughnessy) to steal the Alamainian gemstones that comprised the golden peacock.

In a recent interview, Porte reveals that his character is a “complicated, broken person from a broken home. Very stoic, very serious, very controlled, very driven, very meticulous, very Machiavellian, and then just letting that be one part of him when there’s another very much softer, sweeter side.” Dimitri is cousins with Carly Manning (Crystal Chappell) and Frankie Brady (Billy Warlock).

A Hallmark staple with such movies as “Rome in Love,” “Love, Once and Always,” “A Gift to Remember” and “Love at the Shore,” among others, Porte made his daytime television debut in 2011 when he played Ricky Williams on “The Young and the Restless.” Although the role only lasted about a year, Porte made a memorable impression on viewers when the character died after falling out of a window from being shot by his father, Paul (Doug Davidson).

Recent credits for Porte include roles in such shows as “Uncoupled” and “NCIS.” He also appeared in at least two episodes from season one of the Amazon Prime Video original series “With Love,” co-starring Rome Flynn (ex-Zende Forrester, “The Bold and the Beautiful”).
