Robert Scott Wilson
SoapsSpoilers alluded to the big changes for Robert Scott Wilson since he exited Days of our Lives recently, letting readers know that he was rumored to be returning to Days as Alexander Kiriakis and it’s been confirmed by TV Insider.
The actor did an interview about the transition from Ben Weston to Alex Kiriakis and a short clip of Wilson as Alex in a scene with Sonny (Zach Tinker) shows him at Victor’s manse.
They actor didn’t want to leave the show and after his run, he says, “I got a great phone call about five, six months ago about some changes coming. The long story short, I turned myself into Alex Kiriakis.”
Wilson’s having more fun than any other project he’s done. He’s the polar opposite of Ben Weston and his looks have changed a little. “Little bit more flashy,” the actor says, smiling from ear to ear. Watch the video for more!
Wilson first airs July 26.
There’s a new police officer in Salem as Elia Cantu makes her debut as Jada Hunter on Days of our Lives. Cantu will first be seen July 19.
The actress has made appearances in television on 9-1-1, Criminal Minds, and This Is Us.
Chandler Massey once again leaves Days of our Lives this time around, on July 18.
Will Horton will be heading out of Salem (spoiler) when he gets an offer to work on a film in Hollywood.
Governor Mitchell makes an appearance with Mark Bramhall in the role. The politician will make a few shocking decisions after he meets with Orpheus.
Dr. Wilhelm Rolf is getting a new face. Will Utay has portrayed the maniacal and brilliant Dr. Rolf since 1995 and he’s now being recast with Richard Wharton. His role starts July 22.
Wharton once portrayed Pawn Broker/Yogi Hari on Young and Restless, he’s been on Criminal Minds, NCIS, Major Crimes, Girl Boss, and more recently, American Crime Story.
Ali Sweeney was back airing on Days of our Lives after a lengthy time away from the show. She first reappeared Thursday, June 23.
She will be leaving once again on July 15 when Sami leaves Salem.
Viewers know how Days likes to have characters wearing masks to hide their true identities, so when we saw this cop in the May 10 episode, on the scene after TR Coates (William Christian) was killed by Lani (Sal Stowers), we wondered who he was.
It was only recently that we learned the actor was Scott Crane. He wore dark glasses and with his mustache, he appeared suspicious. It turns out he was just a cop! Check out his Instagram. Thank you Sara (@SaraCiuzio) for bringing this to our attention via Twitter!
