Santa brought an unfortunate lump of coal to Days of our Lives longtime veteran, Bryan Dattilo (Lucas). Shortly before the holiday hiatus the show informed Bryan and his manager, that they would not be picking up Dattilo’s next work cycle. Since his contract was up in February 2010, the powers-that-be ended his arrangement with the soap a bit early. According to Soap Opera Digest, “He has taped his last episode,” confirms his manager. Best wishes to Bryan on his future endeavors from On-Air On-Soaps!
