The secret is out, confirmed, and now the next step is for fans of NBC’s Days of our Lives to get their first look at Daytime Emmy winner, and soap vet Vincent Irizarry in his new role as Deimos on the daytime drama series come mid-January!

After having to hold the big news for over a month, Irizarry took to his facebook page to relate his thanks and support to his long time fans and supporters who have continually rallied for this talented acting gem.

Vincent posted: “Finally!!! I’m able to share with all of you what I’ve been excitedly holding in for over a month now, that I’ve joined all the incredibly talented people in Salem over at Days of our Lives!! I honestly couldn’t be happier to be working with such wonderfully gifted people, all of whom who have been so warm and welcoming. I’m equally thrilled to be playing a character I’ve already loved playing these past weeks, with scripts that have been so wonderful, I’m excited each time I open a new one to find out what the writers have in store for me next, and alongside actors I have so much respect for. What a true, absolute pleasure it’s all been!!! Thank you so much, all of you, for your tireless support of me and my work throughout all these years together. I’m truly, truly touched by the overwhelming expressions of kind thoughts and well wishes by so many of you throughout all the social media outlets. As it has been throughout so many times in my life working on shows such as this, because of you all, my cup truly runneth over… Can’t wait to see you all in Salem!!! ‪#‎DaysOfOurLives‬”

What did you think of Vincent’s message? Excited to see the actor who has wowed audiences on Guiding Light, Santa Barbara, The Young and the Restless, and All My Children shake up Salem?  Comment below!

    DAYS is really on fire. Please do not drop the ball, DAYS team, with too much stunt casting or lack of solid stories involving core families and histories. DAYS remembers the humanity better than the others. I like Salem more because it reminds me more of the lost ATWT and AMC.


  2. Vicki Black says:

    Days will the soap to beat. They keep upping their game and will be a definite contender. Love Vincent’s work and will look forward to the future in Salem


  3. Gmbenet says:

    Congrats to Vincent Irizarry. I am not familiar with his work because I didn’t watch those other soaps during his time there. But I wish him well in Salem!


  4. Jimh(leave it to beaver) says:

    Days is fast becoming daytimes hottest soap…i rarely miss it now!!!


    4ever DAYS replied

    It really is, Jimh! It’s as if some old silverware has been polished and will be used for a big fancy dinner!!! I was hungry and now I’m eating DAYS up!!!!!


  5. Vicky says:

    I have missed Vincent Irizarry for years from AMC. I’m so glad he’s coming back to us on this show. I just hope they don’t hook him up with Sami. (I know, broken record: I really don’t like that train wreck of self-centeredness and destruction, Just my opinion and fear.) But I’ll be so glad to see him!!


  6. Harry says:

    I am just going to have to start watching Days now.


    Jules replied

    DO IT Harry. DO IT! GH’s 50th is so 2 1/2 years ago.
    We’re here to help if you have any questions! :)


  7. Brian says:

    I can see them putting him with Eve or Jennifer maybe. Vincent has chemistry with almost everyone. He and Finola Hughes were my favorite until Lindsay Hartley joined AMC and became Cara Castillo. I so wish that they had not killed off Arianna!


    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I agree that was a mistake…maybe somehow they can bring her back one day…liked her with Brady!!!


  8. Kim says:

    I can’t wait to see him share scenes with Judi Evans since I was a huge Lujack and Beth fan when he and Judi were on Guiding Light


  9. Geena says:

    They’re really getting a lot of great actors. The downside is we have to wait another 6 months before we see him onscreen!


  10. Tom Jenkins says:

    When Prospect Park’s poor attempt at reviving ALL MY CHILDREN On-line failed, I felt badly for actors who were misled and left in the lurch, including Vincent in his role of a calculating Doctor. I am glad to see that he has been picked up by DOOL, I knew it would just be a matter of time before someone snatched him up -
    he will be a welcomed addition to Days.


    B.J. replied

    He is a wonderful actor and I hope they won’t cast him as a villain no one will like. Although he can handle any role they give him.

    I am SO looking forward to his arrival. He has really been missed in daytime.


  11. Ray says:

    If there is one other actress I would like to see join the show, it is Colleen Zenk. I think she is a powerhouse, stunning woman.


  12. KateA says:

    Not a Days fan but I am a big fan of V.I. I never understood why he was not picked up earlier. I wanted him to go to Y&R. I have gotten bored with Y&R and no longer watch. I am enjoying Dynasty and The Doctors reruns. I never watched those two soaps so I am having a lot of fun watching them. I am still missing AMC and wish it would come back with Vincent!
