Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Bryan Dattilo Back On Contract
DOOL comings and goings reveal that Dattilo is finally back on contract, according to Soap Opera Digest spoilers. This means there are some big storylines featuring the character in the near future. The actor first appeared on the NBC soap as Lucas in 1993. Many fans may recall watching Lucas, Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney), Caroline Brady (Christie Clark), Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin), Philip Kiriakis Jay Kenneth Johnson), Mimi Lockhart (Farah Fath) and others navigate high school in Salem.
DOOL Comings And Goings: Vivian Alamain Recast
Louise Sorel has always been the face of Vivian. Now, there was one time a few years ago when Robin Strasser took over the role. However, things reportedly didn’t work out the way everyone thought they would. Head writer Ron Carlivati wanted to bring Vivian back, but Sorel declined due to COVID-19. So, Linda Dano will be taking a shot at being Vivian in 2021.
Freddie Smith Appears As Sonny Kiriakis
Days of Our Lives comings and goings reveal that we saw Will Horton (Chandler Massey) in the winter promo. Then, we saw Will come back to Salem to spend Christmas with his family. The only problem was that half of “Wilson” was missing.
Actor Freddie Smith was asked to come back with Massey, but he declined. Smith explained on his YouTube channel that he had just moved to Florida, the COVID-19 pandemic was still a big issue and it was a lot of travel for just one day on set. If they had offered him more of a storyline, then he would have considered traveling from Florida to California.
Well, it seems that there was a compromise. On December 30, we will see Will and Sonny video chat. We have to say that it’s better than not seeing Sonny at all!
Days Of Our Lives Comings And Goings: Sami Brady Returning
As for who else is coming back in the near future, Sami is just around the corner. She will fly back to Salem for an emotional storyline that will air throughout 2021. What we don’t know is what the story is about or which characters will be part of the journey? Is it about EJ DiMera (James Scott), Belle Black (Martha Madison), Allie Horton (Lindsay Arnold) or someone else? We will find out soon enough. We don’t have an exact air date for Sweeney yet, but it should be within the next few weeks.
