On Tuesday’s December 20th episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, John-Paul Lavoisier will exit the show as Phillip Kiriakis. Although the news that the actor had been written-off surfaced months ago, his on-air wrap up airs today.
On yesterday’s episode, Phillip, after being drugged by Deimos (Vincent Irizarry) and surviving it, asks Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) to come away with him and they will start a new life together. Chloe says though she cares for him … she’s not in love with him. Phillip understands and tells Chloe that if she ever needs him, he will come back to Salem for her.
Now, Phillip will have a chance to have it out with his Uncle Deimos before he exits Salem!
As for Lavoisier, he will be seen in the upcoming online series, Ladies of the Lake. Of course, OLTL fans remember his work fondly as Rex Balsom,a role he played for ten years from 2002-2012.
Lavoisier’s DAYS cast mate, A Martinez (Eduardo) played tribute to JP via social media relating: “Today, Tuesday, the wonderful John Paul Lavoisier takes leave of Salem – for now. #DOOL #ClassAct #ProsPro #likenobodyelse“
