Actor Brandon Barash has replaced Tyler Christopher as Stefan DiMera on Days of Our Lives, but temporarily. Yes, you read right, it’s just for a few months. The decision was taken as Tyler wanted to go on a leave, so only for that reason his replacement was brought in in the form of another handsome actor. It’s unknown though for how many months he will be gone for, and his fans will miss him deeply on the show, but knowing that it isn’t permanently should make them happy. After Stefan’s departure they can enjoy watching the famous soap opera actor Brandon who is known for his work on General Hospital as Johnny Zacchara which he had portrayed for years before quitting the show.
Many old characters are set to come back including Farah Fath as Mimi Lockhart, Kyle Lowder as Rex Brady, Chrishell Stause Hartley as Jordan Ridgeway, Thaao Penghlis as Andre DiMera and Lindsey Godfrey as Sarah Horton. While the show is bringing back most of the old characters, they decided to recast the role of Rex, bringing in the person who previously played Brady while the role of Rex was last played by actor Eric Winters from 2002-2006. I suppose this only means that the casting agents preferred Kyle instead of Eric. And those set to exit the show are fan favorite Chabby aka Chad and Abigail DiMera in 2019. Their friend turned enemy Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) will be sticking around and trying to reform herself regretting for the awful things she has done to her friends.
With all the old characters remaining it will be interesting to see Philip Kiriakis being written into the show too, since his baby mama, Mimi is returning as well. If they ever decide to bring him back, it better be in the form of Jay Kenneth Johnson, his dimples would be worth watching. Perhaps down the line their son, Tyler Kiriakis who has been given up for adoption when he was just a baby, can join them too, I mean soap opera is all about drama right. Those wondering what Jay is upto ever since he left the show, the answer is nothing really. Work wise he hasnt really got much going. The last time he was seen on screen was in 2015 in the film Runaway Hearts as Gabe. Who knows him returning to the show as Jay could open new doors for him, I mean he can always appear on another soap opera shows, or even land new roles in a movie.
With too much already happening in the soap opera world, it’s time to welcome Brandon Barash and all the others who are set to return to the show. I mean we all need drama in our lives yeah? With Days still on air, it’s only fair to welcome the entrants and to enjoy watching the show. You can watch NBC long running hit show “Days of Our Lives” every weekday from Monday to Friday on NBC. It’s definitely worth the watch, so grab your popcorns now.
