Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that the week of December 25-29 will bring a debut, a return and two departures. First, the latest comings and comings news reveals that Tyler Christopher will arrive as Stefan O. DiMera. If you’re also a General Hospital fan, you’ll remember his former role as Nikolas Cassadine in Port Charles.
Now Christopher’s headed to Salem and DOOL’s head writer, Ron Carlivati, is excited about what he’ll bring to the table. Since Carlivati used to write for GH, he knows Christopher’s acting style and will be able to play up his talents. In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati talked about his decision to cast Christopher in this crucial role.
“What he did with Nikolas Cassadine, there were some qualities that we were looking for in Stefan, a brooding mogul-type,” Carlivati said. He added that Christopher has a “certain gravitas” that will make him stand out. Carlivati also believes Christopher will be believable as Stefano’s (Joseph Mascolo) son. That’s important with a name like Stefan! He has to at least have a little spark of Stefano in there.
Plus, Louise Sorel will return as Vivian Alamain this week. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Vivian will drop a bomb when she reveals she’s Stefan’s mother and Stefano is his father. Days watchers can expect some fun scenes as Vivian causes mayhem.
Unfortunately, Days of Our Lives viewers will also have to say goodbye to two fan favorites. Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) are already heading out of town again. Let’s hope they’ll come back for a longer stint soon!
Looking ahead a bit, there’s a big comeback on the way. Leann Hunley will be reprising her role as Anna DiMera in 2018. Days of Our Lives spoilers say Roman (Josh Taylor) will be part of Anna’s return arc. Their storyline will come with some interesting surprises, so fans will definitely want to stay tuned.
