Andre DiMera has certainly made himself visible to the citizens of Salen this past week on NBC’s Days ofour Lives, which truly kicks off the return of Thaao Penghlis to the canvas.

Meanwhile, Thaao took off late this week for a short trip to Mexico before all the festivities and book tour begins in conjunction with Days of our Lives 50th anniversary celebration.  Thaao’s timing unfortunately could not have been worse, which put him in peril, as category five Hurricane Patricia made its way to the country in what was predicted to be one of the worse storms in history.

Penghlis first tweeted on Friday, “Took a quick trip to Mexico before DOOL’50th. Stuck here as record cat.5 Is about to hit. Pray. DiMeras never do anything frivolous.”  On Saturday, he followed up with another tweet letting fans know he was safe and sound: “Thank you all for your prayers, you miracle workers.  It seems the worst has left the area. Just heavy rains & wind. But ran out of food.”

As of Saturday afternoon, CNN reported on the storm: “The remnants of Hurricane Patricia dropped heavy rain over central Mexico on Saturday, a day after pounding coastal luxury resorts and impoverished villages alike as a Category 5 storm that uprooted trees, toppled power lines and unleashed mudslides. Patricia, the strongest hurricane ever recorded at sea, weakened slightly before striking southwestern Mexico’s coast Friday evening with crushing 165-mph sustained winds. By late Saturday morning, Patricia had been downgraded to a tropical depression, sapped by mountainous terrain, with 35-mph sustained winds. It’s expected to dissipate Saturday night.”

So, happy to hear that Thaao seems to be doing alright, sans not having any food?  Hopefully, he will surface with another tweet later this evening!  What a coincidence that this beloved soap veteran gets stuck in Mexico during this monster storm!  Share your well-wishes and thoughts for Thaao in the comment section below!

    In your dreams, su0000.

    Thaao is on fire as Andre DiMera! He’s having too much fun to want to leave and DAYS is not letting him go.

    I love all of your posts, Su0000, can u PLEASE start your own page?? :) :) :)


    Connie George replied

    No way for GH. I’ve waited way too long for them to get him back on DOOL. He absolutely can’t leave it again. It’s just not the same without him on there. Never been so happy to see someone return to a show before but I am now. Yay!!

    Thaao- Thanks for answering my message to you last night when you were’t sure what was awaiting you .I am guessing “DiMera Style” You kept everyone calm. It is your wonderful soul who can calm so many. I BELIEVE you were there for a reason. Praying STILL for you and everyone- until it is safe to leave. Bless you, friend. xo


  7. Helen Nicolaou says:

    Our prayers with you Thaao to get home safe. Wish Mexico and people affected by hurricane Patricia a quick recovery from massive clean ups. Happy you are okay watch what you eat and drink even what you wash with.? Mexico a very toxic environment now with escaped toxins and poisons all about. You sure like to be where history made? God Bless and come back to LA. Oh Salem needs you? Take care. Helen.
