Addicts Anonymous actor Shawn Christian is rumored to leave the NBC show “Days of Our Lives” soon. He made his first on screen appearance on March 4, 2008 as Dr Daniel Jonas on hit long running soap opera drama series. Shawn may be the latest actor to leave the show, because he has been starring on the show for over 5 years now, and most stars after playing the show for so long, they either decide to leave the show or get fired. What could the reason for the actor’s departure be? Is he tired of starring on the soap opera, and feels like it’s time for him to look work else where instead of continuing with the show?
The news has not been confirmed by Christian himself nor the writers of the show. Lets just hope that it is only a rumor, even though most of the rumors have turned out to be true. The 49 year old soap opera actor’s character Dr Jonas is currently in love with a character named Nicole Walker, played by Arianne Zucker, who is in and has always been in love with Eric Brady, played by Greg Vaughan. If Nicole had to choose between them then it’s so obvious that she would choose Eric, since Eric too is in love with her, and wants her to be happy. Nicole may love Daniel, but she loves Eric more, because she has known him longer and they have a lot of chemistry. Which leaves Daniel all alone. He is set to leave the show in early December 2015. Will the writers hook him up with another character, or will they write his character out, just like they have written Jordan Ridgeway, (Chrishell Stause) Melanie Jonas’ (Molly Burnett) character out?
Daniel’s baby mama Chloe Lane, played by Nadia Bjorlin is also set to return to the show briefly. If the rumors are indeed true that the “Venice the Series” actor is all set to leave the show, then all I can say is good luck.
Back in February this is what producer Ken Corday had to say about Days of Our Lives : The show had to change the storyline because according to Ken Corday, the show he was looking at was no longer recognisable as “Days of Our Lives”. Which explains why many characters have been let go, and old characters have been brought back.
