The highly-anticipated arrival of Daytime Emmy winner Jordi Vilasuso to the Salem scene is upon us. Circle next Friday, February 19th as Jordi’s first airshow on Days of our Lives.
Vilasuso, who previously played Griffin Castillo on All My Children and Tony Santos on Guiding Light, returns to daytime in the role of Rafe (Galen Gering) and Gabi’s (Camila Banus) brother, Dario Hernandez. The role was played once before back in 2011 by Francisco San Martin, but the character has not been seen for years. Enter Jordi!
In the latest issues of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Vilasuso previews his new role relating what happened when he spoke with DAYS EP Ken Corday, Co-EP Albert Alaar, and head writer Josh Griffith: ” They talked to me about Dario and the one thing I responded to most was that he was very intelligent. Dario is also very passionate and outspoken. He has a short fuse. I was so ready and wanting to play this guy.” For more on Jordi’s new role make sure to check out SOD!
