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!
