Days of Our Lives star – Brendan Michael Coughlin confirmed on Twitter on June 13, 2015 about being the latest actor to leave the long running soap opera drama series “Days Of Our Lives”. He tweeted : “Thinking sadly about his time in Salem has run out, but every time he runs into a Days fan it makes him miss it that much more!!.” Sounds like he’s missing being on the show big time, isn’t he? The 31 year old actor first debuted on the NBC show on May 9, 2009 in the recurring role of Tad Stevens when he was in his late twenties. The character of Tad was best friends with Will Horton played by Guy Wilson. He was described as a funny guy who would make his friends laugh, his character recently became friends with Ben Rogers, played by Robert Scott Wilson who he used to work together with at Sonny Kiriakis and Chad DiMera’s Club TBD. He last appeared as Tad earlier this year on March 27, 2015
Just as Stevens confirmed his Days exit on Twitter, that’s when another famous actor A Martinez confirmed his official Twitter account about his “Days of Our Lives” debut in September 2015. In May 2015, it was declared that soap opera actor and singer, had joined the long running soap opera show in the contract role of Eduardo. The 66 year old is no stranger to the soap opera world, he had previously starred in “The Bold and the Beautiful” in the past as Dr. Ramon Montgomery, “One Life To Live” as Ray Montez and “General Hospital” as Roy DiLucca. His storyline could be connected with Eve Donovan’s, played by Kassie DePaiva and Rafe Hernandez, played by Galen Gering. Another actor leaving the show is Greg Jackson as Jeremiah.
Three recurring roles (Tad, Leo and Jeremiah) were let go from the show, and perhaps more recurring characters will be let go in future, as new writers have taken over the show now. Since the character of Laura is being mentioned on the show a lot by Eve Donovan, played by Kassie DePaiva, does that mean Laura Horton played by Jaime Lyn Bauer who last appeared in 2013, is set to return to the show? Only time will tell. One person that I’m really looking forward to seeing back on the show is Jay Kenneth Johnson (Philip Kiriakis). It’s about time the head writers bring him back.
