More exciting returns for the 50th anniversary of NBC’s Days of our Lives with the news today via Soap Opera Digest!
Thaao Penghlis, who was last seen on General Hospital as Victor Cassadine, has returned to Salem and is already filming new episodes in either the role of Tony DiMera, or his dastardly lookalike cousin, Andre DiMera! Thaao is also back on contract!
Penghlis was last seen on DAYS back in 2009 when Tony died. As for Andre DiMera, viewers last saw him turn-off his own life-support machine in the hospital and framed Shawn Brady (Frank Parker) to make it look like he murdered him a few year prior.
The actor posted on his facebook page: “I’m back. I cannot tell how great it was going back to the DOOL set on contract & be embraced by so many. As Ken Corday said ‘Welcome back to the family.’ And seeing big Daddy was just beautiful. And love the material from the new head writers.”
So, who do you think Thaao will play when he re-emerges in Salem for the 50th anniversary episodes … Tony or Andre? Comment below!
