NBC Days of Our Lives casting news has been a bit of a rollercoaster the past several months. First, everyone’s contract was ripped up. Then, mass cast exits were announced, but then we were told some of them were sticking around after all and now we are expecting tons of big-name returns. The latest information reveals that five actors have been given contracts.
Days Of Our Lives – Jay Kenneth Johnson Not Going Anywhere
DOOL alum Jay Kenneth Johnson played Victor Kiriakis’ (John Aniston) and Kate Roberts DiMera’s (Lauren Koslow) son, Philip Kiriakis. The actor is now on contract, so Philip isn’t going to be run off by anyone, including Xander Cook Kiriakis (Paul Telfer). Even though he is interacting with Belle and Shawn, most of his scenes right now center around Titan. Expect Philip and Xander’s to last quite some time because both men are too stubborn to give up the CEO title.
DOOL Spoilers – Lucas Adams Scores DOOL Contract
Lucas Adams was brought back on contract, so it seems like Tripp Dalton really is back home. The actor told Soap Opera Digest that Tripp wants to finish his final year of medical school in Salem. He also stated that Tripp plans on staying in Salem for good, so there will be another doctor in town.
Days Of Our Lives – Lindsay Arnold Returns as Allie Horton
Days of Our Lives casting news previously confirmed that Allie Horton would return, but not as a young girl. Sami Brady’s (Alison Sweeney) would be all grown up. Lindsay Arnold was chosen to play the SORAS Salemite. \Allie ran away and left her baby to Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) and Nicole Walker Brady (Arianne Zucker).
Nobody has seen her since, but that will change. Arnold’s contract news confirms Allie comes back and Nicole will have quite the story to tell her!
