Fan favorite Charles Shaughnessy, who has played Shane Donovan, on and off since 1984, will be back on the Salem canvas very soon!
According to Soap Opera Digest, the actor is already back at NBC taping new episodes of the soap, and will first air appear on-air on May 2. Last time Shaughnessy appeared was in 2010, when Shane reunited with life-long love Kimberly (Patsy Pease) after Alice Horton’s memorial service.
We have also been hearing rumblings and reports that DAYS is also casting the role of Andrew, Shane and Kimberly’s son. In Nelson Branco’s new edition of Soap Opera Unsensored, he reports that the following casting breakdown went out to agents:
“Looking for a 22 to 26 year old handsome, Caucasian male. ANDREW is a very sexy handsome man in an untraditional off-centre way. He has a smoldering sexuality that makes women attracted to him and dark sides that make them fear him. He has a charm that disarms and can turn on a dime. You never quite know what he is thinking or feeling. Prototypes are: younger Viggo Mortensen, Mark Walberg in Fear, Ryan Gosling in Murder by Numbers and Edward Norton in Primal Fear”
So what do you think Shane is returning to Salem for? Who should DAYS cast as Andrew? Let us know!
