Daytime Emmy winner A Martinez took to social media via his Twitter and facebook accounts to clarify his status with Days of our Lives where he has played Eduardo Hernandez.  The actor who was on contract has now gone to recurring status by his own choice.

Martinez tweeted to fan reaction over the last several days of his on-screen story, “Much gratitude for all the Hernandez Love these last couple of days.”

He went on to say: “Wonderful work from everyone on the stage, and some lovely writing and direction as well. To clear up a couple of misapprehensions: Eduardo will return; and the character’s move to ‘recurring’ status was my wish. I love the family and love the show, but need the flexibility the change allows. There’s more to come, and a lot of it is extremely compelling.”

The former star of Santa Barbara is also part of the cast in Netflix upcoming fifth season of Longmire, which is set to premiere in September.  He tweeted this week: “The feeling of it… #Longmire returns four weeks from tonight. If you haven’t yet found it, it’s waiting for you…”

So, glad to know there will be more of A as Eduardo on DAYS? Will you be checking out Longmire’s upcoming season? Comment below!

His character was not well-written…hopefully that will change…he is a good actor…but his characters family had gotten to be overbearing with too much focus on them and not written interestingly-need to take them in a different direction,,,also they seem to be in too much conflict over Edourdos return…he came back months ago and that seems to be all his story-move forward!!!

Spin, spin , spin…. there is no other way to react. DAYS has a HUGE problem. It is probably the worst show on the air. The writing is beyond boring. The acting focus is on children who couldn’t recite the lines in the elementary school production of “Hansel and Gretel”. The more experienced actors are reciting dribble and they hate it. You can see it in their eyes. So few of the actors have any passion. They are gonna give the viewers a gimmick with the return of the 3 villains. None of them will stay and none have any… Read more »

Mateo…as far as I’m concerned, DOOL has H-U-G-E PROBLEMS PERIOD!!!!! Oh…and as for ‘a Sarah Palin talk show’…EVEN WORSE!!!!! BEYOND B-L-E-C-H!!!!!!!!!!

Have a good one.

Agreed! I unfortunately end up FFing most of the show because I find so little that is interesting or compelling. >The teen-scene is the worst and even the veteran actors can do nothing to make their scenes any better. >The entire Jennifer-Is-A-Junky story is beyond stupid and over-done. Who becomes THAT addicted to pills after taking them for a couple weeks? >I’m sick to death of Hope and her entire storyline. She’s awful with both Aiden & Rafe. >The entire Hernandez family can leave Salem and they wouldn’t be missed…especially Mama! I could go on and on! The unfortunate thing… Read more »

Hope is a widow; her husband Bo died in her arms. She is allowed to romantic feelings for another man. I don’t like Aidan but I do like Rafe.

Agreed, SZima. I am married to a doctor….one does not become addicted, as you say, to pain killers in that short span of time. It sort of creeps up on you. And, SZima, that is the crux of the matter….That is, we, the fans, are taken for granted, insulting our intelligence. Miss Jenny has gone through so much turbulance in her life….now, that, would have been more believable…EMOTIONAL PAIN!! I also agree about Hope; and I must have said this ad nauseam!!!!! As mary says, yes, Hope is a widow….but, past her prime; not of falling in love and finding… Read more »

I agree with you soooo much, mary. I have always said that Theo is the best. He is the only younger character I would keep on. What a gem.

Great news if A’s character is hardly on, but it’d be better if he was gone for good. Days just needs Rafe and Gabriella.

Sorry to see him on re-occurring with DOOL but I love me some “Longmire” and he plays a great character.

Such a gifted actor with an understated, humble acting style. I have never disliked any character I have seen him portray. My favorite will always be Cruz Castillo.

Nicholas

me too ! he will always be cruz castillo to me . The cruz and eden love story from our very much missed santa barbara . Santa barbara was my first soap and was a huge part of my life . I was so surprised they didn’t bring cruz and eden back for the final episode . I later learnt they didn’t even bother to ask him back , i suppose the same thing happened to marcy walker . The acting of these two was just pure magic . It was the best soap ever made in my opinion .

Nickolas Marcy Walker quit acting and is working for a church. So I doubt she would have returned. The end of SB was the worst hatchet job ever done to any soap ever. A. is a terrific actor and given a chance he can bring it . BUT. I could never get use to the hair on his chin. Glad he will be returning.

Marcy walker was still very much in the acting buisness at the time . in 1991 she quit santa barbara to star in the cop show Palace Guard which flopped . in 1993 she joined Guiding light as reporter tangie hill . When that was done she returned to all my children as lisa colby the part she had played before joining santa barbara as eden and left i think in either 2005 or 2006 and it was at that point that she left acting and started working for a church . The end of Santa Barbara was indeed the… Read more »

this man is gold

Ken Corday squandered and all the responsibility is “his”

Betty and Ted Corday’ dream

they should … never…. have fired Kassie DePaiva

Eduardo and Eve WERE gold

it just seems so obvious that REELING 6 months ahead… filming so far in advance

takes the spontaneity and energy out of the actors… who need that “live” feedback

the whole production is not working together

it’s like the blind leading the blind

or is it?

Ken Corday ???? !!!!! what the effing expletive are you doing

the decades plus of your parents livelihood is

Does Corday read these comments…if not maybe he should. He would realize how the teen crowd is so bad at acting and recast all of them. Also find a singer to replace Claire.Please !

I know, her singing sounds like a female Cat in labor – What is WITH this show? Do the Producers NOT read the comments on Facebook or here or anywhere? Everyone pretty much concurs on the same issues – knock it off already with Claire’s singing, is she someone’s niece at the Production company or what – and as for the young actress who portrays Ciarra, well, either her acting skills are not up to par or the writing is just so lacking maybe even Meryl Streep couldn’t do much with it – When Sonny returned, I thought, good maybe… Read more »

I didn’t think A was leaving. I thought it was obvious Ed would be back. They have to find out Dario is behind the threats and then Ed will return. I wish Dario would leave.

I’ve never been a big A Martinez fan (I know, what’s wrong with me??) – but he has suffered the same fate that most new characters introduced since the last righting of the ship at Days – few of them have driven any story. Yes, I think introducing characters slowly and not throwing them front burner is a good choice overall – but look at all the characters that have come on in the last year and gone nowhere fast – Eduardo, Dario, Gabi, Summer, Phillip, Belle, Shawn. Yes, they’ve had stuff to do, but outside of whatever brought them… Read more »

I can’t believe the “new” regime of writers starting next week is the same Dena Higley who has been fired 2 or 3 times already in the last 15 years on Days. She is about as new as bring Andre back the tenth time from the dead. They need to fire all these old hack writers and get new blood. And keeping Nicole in the same stories with different male characters is a joke. Ej, Brady, Daniel, and now Deimos. Come on. Always a pregancy and its never hers!! My finger is getting tired Fast Forwarding everyday.

I really concur with so much that is being said. Seems there is an audience, but no one is happy with how characters are being brought in, and then given center stage, not developed, then they are gone, and the storylines are flat. I understand that for a variety of reasons new characters have to be brought in and then may have to go whether because the actors have other commitments, their character or storyline is not working out, etc.), but there is so much coming and going, storylines all over the place, that you cannot really connect with the… Read more »

Agree that the teen stories and some of the casting is not working! For one, some of the stories are inappropriate for the age group. The singing way over emphasized & the style well not appealing to large groups. As for introducing new characters you cannot force feed them, over prop and insert them everywhere! They need slower integration with the rest of the cast and a take over only turns off viewers. A soap should be ensemble, having writers create a pet situation is like an infestation of a virus you want eradicated. As for Hope, yes she should… Read more »

DAYS Olympic-Style Promo to Tide You Over Until It Returns

DAYS fans know from past Olympics, that when the games begin, the long-running NBC soap opera which gets a two-week preemption leaves its viewers with one hell of cliffhanger and this time they left viewers with two.

First, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) now knows that Sami (Alison Sweeney) cheated on him with Lucas (Bryan Dattil0) and apparently goes to confront her, but in true EJ fashion he does not let on that anything remiss. Meanwhile, Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) has “kidnapped” Ciara (Victoria Konefal) just before she was to walk down the aisle and marry Theo (Cameron Johnson). Cin fans were rejoicing here!

So, while the games of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (which are not taking place in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic) are taking place, NBC delivered their own Days of our Lives promo Olympic-style to hold viewers over till we return to Salem.

Take a look at the promo below.

Now, let us know, which story are you most looking forward to most when Days is back on the air? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
