Just as Salem is ringing in 2018, NBC has unvelied its latest promo, this one ushering onto the canvas, Daytime Emmy winner, Tyler Christopher!

In it, the former General Hospital favorite (Ex-Nikolas Cassadine) clearly makes an impact on a New Year’s shindig with his stunning entrance.

The promo tells viewers that Christopher’s new character is sexy and ruthless, two traits that mean D-I-M-E-R-A!  As noted from Soap Opera Digest, Christopher is playing the new character, Stefan O. DiMera, and DAYS fans get their first glimpses of him next week on the January 2nd episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

    Tyler Christopher….so glad to see him again. He sometimes comes off arrogant but overall he is a great addition to this show but let’s get real, this means nothing without Louise Sorel as Vivian. She is the reason this will all be so tasty. Happy New Year Ron Carlivati, you brought back what I loved about DAYS……excitement, fun and something worth watching.

    Oh, Jimmy, my friend….I just caught up….the best show given by no other than our queen Vivian!!!!!
    Oh, my, my , my….How rich and sweet was the caricature of Lady of the castle executed?….
    “Andre– we must have lunch….your treat……”, said she, LOL. I could never get enough of Ms Sorel’s Vivian.
    She, certainly, did not disappoint!! She never fails to “hold court” with flair and style.
    Tyler, as Stefan O (Octavian) wasn’t too shabby either. …..strong presence which commanded respect. Kudos!!
    Hmmmm…Octavian is an adaptation of the number ‘eight’ …..it is an Italian name, in a sense…..carrying the name of a paternal grandfather and so forth down the line….. Could Stefan O be Stefano the VIII? Eight Stefanos before him?? ….we never know with these writers.
    I still believe Stefano is alive ……I bet Vivian and Stefan O know exactly where he is??
    Some posters do believe it is a fallacy….no way can Stefano ( Joseph Mascolo) be ‘duplicated’. I agree, albeit it could still happen.

    Celia replied

    Tell them, Jimmy….tell them you want payment for continuously using your ideas….LOL.

    I think he will fill the hole the show has felt since EJ left a few years back. I am looking forward to this storyline and would love to see him end up with…Hope.

    Oh, my gosh, b’gosh, Ray!! I don’t wish Hope on anyone. The woman is so ‘ramrod’ straight ( reminds me of Sister Mary Margaret) , I think the only emotion she shows is the arching of one eyebrow.
    She never used to be soooo ‘unbendingly’ stiff……

    4ever DAYS replied

    Yes, Mateo, DAYS is a smorgasbord…There is plenty of variety that the viewers can feast their eyes on while the performers sink their teeth into! I’ll have the sauteed salmon in Salem!!

    Wickedly entertaining!!!

    Celia replied

    Yeeesss, 4ever….”wickedly entertaining”… I lke that…perfetto!!!! Thanks to Vivian!

    Jimh replied

    Again they are using my idea…sometime ago i suggested Robin Strasser come on as Lee Dumonde who has a long lost child by Stephano…but its Vivian instead…this is the second story idea of mine…the other being David and Valerie had a child together..i like it!!!!!.

    Michael James replied

    Preach Mateo! Ron Carlivati is the only reason I came back to DAYS after 20 years. Ron is a wonderful writer who isn’t afraid to “go there” with storylines. He adds humor, mystery, great drama, and exciting twists. He brought life to both OLTL and GH and as we’ve all witnessed, he’s doing the same at DAYS. I think Tyler Christopher is a fantastic addition and I’ve been in love with Louise Sorel since she played Augusta Lockeridge on Santa Barbara. Now that was the best soap in history in my opinion. Boy am I showing my age…Ha!

    Jovin replied

    Santa Barbara ruled!!!

    Patrick replied

    love the props for Ron Carlivati. I am so thrilled at the outcome and the dream like state i’m in… wowing myself when I tune IN.

    ie: Louise Sorel from two of the best . Santa Barbara and Days of OUR Lives

    GAVEL.

    Santa Barbara is an American television soap opera that aired on NBC from July 30, 1984 to January 15, 1993
    from Wiki

    ??? I tend not to put Santa Barbara with the much LONGER running serial. duh ? ATWT will always be my #1. but… like you and plenty other – Santa Barbara is the crème de la crème.. of stellar TALENT. the BEST CAST and heck… I’m still in love with Jed Allen… and so much love for Nicholas Coster and Louise Sorel… PLUS PLUS PLUS.

    Days of OUR Lives is doing it

    Roxiebell replied

    I’ve been waiting months for Tyler so needless to say I can’t wait to see his face on my TV again.

    Unfortunately, I was not bowled over by his initial appearance/scenes.

    Jovin replied

    Maybe he will get to tap Kayla! That would put Tyler, Mary Beth, and Stephen back into a triangle from their days at GH. I’m not sure how I feel about ANOTHER DiMera child. How many kids can Stefano have? It’s a little bit absurd when a heretofore unknown child pops up every few years. I like Tyler as an actor but he is much better as a nice guy because he is quirky and charming. Playing “bad” just doesn’t seem to come naturally to him. But of course, I will reserve comment. I don’t like the idea of Stefano being alive either. I totally look at it as a slap in the face to Joe Mascolo, who was given special episodes as closure. Joe is deceased and so should Stefano be! There is no reason a 90 year man would still be plotting murder and mayhem. Leave that to his children. I also hope it is revealed that Andre is really Tony. This lovesick puppy dog is nothing like Andre. Has anyone forgotten that Andre is a brutal serial killer?? He viciously stabbed Renee, Trista, and other women. He also staged all the killings in 2003-2004 that traumatized half the town, including Abigail’s father Jack. To see her cozying up to him on the couch saying she loves him is a bit much!!

    I disagree about him not playing bad – that is when I like him the best when he gets pissed and goes off, OMG very powerful. I am thinking he can hold his own and them some with all these guys in his family, and he will definitely attract the ladies. I don’t know this cast so not sure who is available to be his love interest, but he is Amazing in love scenes

    Patrick replied

    Hi Jovin – I would get – soooooo – pissed @GH. when , Billy Miller “Jason” would , WIN every fight, altercation, battle, as it were. Nicholas it seems, never stood a chance.

    that’s what pissed me off… and yeah,… pissed that they fired a mega watt

    I daresay – Tyler Christopher MUST play tough guy well… because … NEAR every other post while he was on GH, at the latter end… when NIcholas was throwing more shade… posts were livid… where is the Prince of ole

    I am so glad he is back on our telee

    @Lisa – YES – tell it like it is. boffo appeal across the board

    TC is a force

    rebecca1 replied

    I’ve never watched this soap…might check it out now. There are FOUR

    rebecca1 replied

    hahah…must have hit send by mistake….I was saying there are four previous Cassadines on the show now! (Was Cathrine a Cassadine? Don’t remember if she married Stefan…but she was in their orb).

    Will have to catch up on the history of the show and give it a shot!

    Jaime replied

    if he goes near kayla I am cancelling Days forever. Not amused that tyler was propped at Nichols expense on GH when Stefan cassadine was far more interesting than the duller Nikolas so if he robs Stephen of another I am so done with him and days & grossly over rated ron carlivati

    Celia replied

    Ohhhhh, Jovin…..what a great assumption!!!!!! Andre is really Tony????? I love that. And, you are right. What we see is not the stuff of which makes Andre. Imagine Anna coming back…bye, bye Kay?…albeit, Kay is one of my favorites on DOOL.
    Concering Tyler? He doesn’t need to be “bad”, in the true sense of the word. He could be ‘imperious”, as his name suggests, Octavian ( Augustus).
    His ‘badness’ may be distributed more subtly from his father’s. I wouldn’t count any cruelty coming from Tyler, as Stefan, out. He did a pretty good job of showing his bloodthirsty side at the end of his tenure on GH.

    michele replied

    WOW Christopher looks great what a loss for GH i wish they can work something out down the road . i have been watching GH for over 26 yrs and he is one of the reasons and his son on the show is great i miss him . i guess i will have to start watching this also .

    Reply

    Patrick replied

    yeah, inasmuch as I’m so excited for him… this new opportunity

    and he’s back on all our telee

    i’d readily WELCOME this man back @GH. SHOOT he ( also spent like Steve burton ) 20 plus years @GH.

    I will never forget what Jean Shelley and Frank did to this show and Tyler.

    after all the hoopla of the TWIN dynamics die down.. and it will spiral… once Sam reunites back with Jason… and it’s the fab four back in front. SIGH

    WHAT : are Carly Sonny Jason and Sam going to do ? what we haven’t already seen and know ? what ? could these 4 possibly bring now ?

    Nicholas Cassadine will forever be GH… muchmoreso than most.

    Stefan O. DiMera – this adds so much intrigue.. because of TC being a DiMera.

    I wish Tyler and his family all the best… respect and thank you .

    Louise Sorel is the best villain in soap history. She is the only villain that comes close to Stefano. She is truly one of a kind and highly under rated. Days should be doing everything tin their power to keep her presence on the show. when Kristen goes off bring Vivian in and go back and forth between the two.

    Reply

    Mo replied

    She is based in NY. I think she was okay with coming back for a short arc, but I don’t know if Louise would want to return FT.

    I would love it if she did come back FT, because she has long been one of my favorites.

    Who remembers her on SB cooking her daughter’s pet bird and serving it on crackers? For some reason, that has stayed with me. And of course, all of Vivian’s machinations on Days. Love her!

    And wasn’t Stephen Nichols family and he had story with Mary Beth as well, I believe. Didn’t watch GH then.

    Watched Tyler on GH for years and I am sure he will be terrific on DOOL. How perfect, him being Stefano’s son. He plays the dark characters so well. Loved Vivians entrance in the black cape. DOOL is in an upswing thanks to Ron C. All the actors have also been amazing. I am sure the better writing and storylines are giving them the inspiration.

    OMG! Of course. I can’t believe I said that. I must have been reading too much about the debate above about Miller versus Burton.

    My apologies, Billy FLYNN!!! You know I love you. :-)

    Patrick replied

    did you mean ? Billy Flynn : our man of the hour… he’s a lot. Chad DiMera

    this occurred to me. I daresay… oy @TPTB

    Leave the DiMera ensemble as it is… PLUS the one and only Tyler Christopher

    the dynamic between Andre, Kate, Chad, Abs, Ben… HOT

    w/ Stefan ( Tyler Christopher ) that much HOTTER

    I wonder who… Stefan could be paired with ?

    to this day… for the younger set “newbie” I AM IN LOVE w/Chad and Abs FOREVER

    Patrick replied

    DID you hear…. i’m so ecstatic… Anna DiMera is coming back

    Leann Hunley is BACK … bigger than life… SEX’y – so sensual w/comedic timing

    as all the men in Salem… get in line

    Chrystie-Delancey replied

    YES! My apologies. I follow Billy’s instagram – inlikebillyflynn. He and his wife are a riot! I love him on DAYS. I haven’t thought of Billy MILLER since he was on Y&R despite the fact that I watch GH too.

    Oh, Billy FLYNN, I am so sorry.

    Celia replied

    Really???? Anna is coming back? Ironically enough, I wished for her to come back when Jovin proposed Andre being really Tony ….

  17. Mo says:

    I couldn’t get a handle on Stefan and Tyler’s portrayal yesterday. It was just one ep. We’ll see. Love having Vivian back. She is fabulous.

    I did notice Stefan spoke in past tense about Stefano. I think that was wrong. Stefano is still alive!

    Trying to figure out the time line for all this. How old is Stefan supposed to be? I guess he’s older than Chad, but younger than Andre.

    Reply

    Celia replied

    I think Stefano is alive, as well…..could be that Stefan spoke of him in the past tense so that not to give the truth away; that is, Stefano being alive!!

    I loooved TC on Day’s and GH. He looks good, glad they were able to cover his ugly tat.
    I understand the latest fab, that young men keep their hands in their pockets. Not too DiMera style or even “Princely”. Never see TGVN with his hands in his pockets.
    His entrance was strong and quite good, then he stands there like a “kid”.
    Looking forward to see Stefan’s adventure thru Salem, their women etc.

    I do like Tyler but right now, I am having a tough time seeing him on screen and thinking I’m watching Nikolas. Guess it’ll take time. I went through the same thing when Josh Taylor was Chris Kositchek for years then left and came back as Roman Brady-every time I saw the actor, I kept thinking i was watching Chris.
