Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers reveal that one popular star is out at the NBC soap. DOOL fans have loved watching Brandon Barash in the role of Stefan DiMera. His good looks and boyish charm have made us feel sorry for Stefan – perhaps even when he didn’t deserve it! Barash was a solid recast right out of the gate and has always had sizzling chemistry with his costar, Camila Banus (Gabi DiMera).
Unfortunately, a new photo chart reveals that Barash is no longer with the show. Jason47 shared the news on his Facebook page, so this is certainly disappointing to hear. There’s been some buzz about Barash’s departure already, but this is something more concrete to crush our “Stabi” dreams!
Of course, part of the problem is that Days of Our Lives films so far in advance. They can’t accurately gauge the fan response when they have to wait months and months for episodes to hit the screen. However, that advance filming schedule also helps Days stay alive. It allows for more dark weeks at the studio and is part of what keeps the show on the air.
In other words, this is a Catch-22 that DOOL will never be able to fix. In this case, it’s particularly frustrating since Stefan and Gabi are lightning hot right now. They’ve just reconnected in the DiMera tunnels and seem poised to be a true power couple, but their bliss won’t last. Days of Our Lives spoilers say “Stabi’s” romance will have to blow up eventually.
On Twitter, many DOOL fans are calling for Barash’s return. “It would be a smart move to bring back Brandon Barash,” said on viewer. Another fan tweeted, “Dear @nbcdays and @carlivatiron, please bring Brandon Barash back as Stefan DiMera as soon as possible! Love Stefan and Gabi together!”
We should note that Barash was brought in as a temporary recast. He filled in for Tyler Christopher and ended up sticking around a lot longer than initially expected. Even so, this is a tough blow for Stefan and “Stabi” fans.
