When Lucas Horton (Bryan Datillo) left Days Of Our Lives in December last year, Datillo thought it was the last time he would portray the role. So he was pleasantly surprised that he is already set to come back to the sudser.
In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Datillo teases Lucas’ return to Salem. He also talked about what he did while he was on break from “Days of Our Lives.”
“Once you’re in the Horton living room and you’re hanging your ornament you’re like, ‘Ah, one last time for the Gipper.’ And you feel like oh, that could be it. That could be it,” he admitted. “But then Julie said, ‘This will always be your home,’ so then I kind of thought, ‘Well, maybe the door’s open.’”
“It was really a pleasant surprise for me, for Bryan, but Lucas, I think, just gets dragged back,” Datillo said.

He added that it has something to do with an unhealthy relative. That is most likely because of his son, Will Horton (Chandler Massey), who recently learned that he has brain tumor.
The last time we saw Lucas was when he returned in December to break things off with Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin). He then flew back to Europe to be with his daughter Allie Horton (last played by Campbell and Carolyn Rose).
Now, Lucas needs to return for his son, who’s life is in grave danger. His brain tumor is inoperable because of its complicated location, and Will fears he has no future anymore.
Meanwhile, Datillo shared that he’s been busy while he was not working on “Days of Our Lives.”

“Life takes over as being a dad and a husband and an owner of two crazy dogs,” he shared. “I’ve been trying to revamp my acting profile outside of DAYS. There’s new agents, new managers, new headshots to be taken, there’s always social media to keep updated.”
He also said he’s been thinking all the time about going to acting class, but he hasn’t been able to do so. But on a positive note, he has been working out and lost about 20 pounds already, which explains why he’s looking good on his recent photos on social media.
“I just got into a routine daily where I wake up early and do a two-hour routine in my house,” he said. “I look better. People say I look 10 years younger, which is nice.”
