The search is over!  Days of our Lives has found their Finn!  Revealed exclusively on Sunday, Alexander Bruzt bested finalists Andrew Steel and Tom Dalzell for the upcoming role on the long running NBC soap opera set to celebrate 50 years on the air this November.

Bruszt landed the role after flying to Los Angeles a week and half ago for a screen test, where he went head to head with two other finalists.  On-Air On-Soaps spoke to Bruzt and the finalists immediately following their screen test.

The thirty-two year old was one of more than 300 actors who entered Foxtel Arena’s online competition. Alexander will join the cast of DAYS as the  handsome and rugged Australian doctor who arrives in Salem to complete his residency under the supervision of Doctor Jonas, played by Shawn Christian.

Mr Bruszt will return to LA in May to start shooting his episodes! He will appear on-air in November.  Bruzt commented on his victory: “I am looking forward to this opportunity to work with such an incredibly talented cast and crew on such an internationally respected daytime drama.”

DAYS Co-Executive Producer Greg Meng said on the casting of Bruzt as Finn: “‘After seeing the amazing range of talented submissions we received from Australia, we’re thrilled to welcome Alexander Bruszt to our Days family. We can’t wait for fans to see what kind of trouble he’ll be stirring up in Salem.”

So what do you think about the choice of Alexander Bruzt for the role of Finn? Looking forward to seeing what his story will ultimately be on the soap? Comment below!

Hey, Mark.
Is that a double entendre? How very witty of you. Too funny.

Jordan and her family were failures…Serena is another flop as was Melanie’s return…i will reluctantly give this Finn a chance…he will most likely be a new love interest for Theressa, and Brady will show his jealous side!!! Of course Daniel has to be involved…i wouldve prefered Kayla and having a storyline with her falling in love with this much younger Finn and in an ironic twist Patch becomes his patient and saves Patch’s life!!!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

He looks like a young Patch…maybe Finn is son of Patch!!! John doesnt have to be the only one in with a long lost love child…lol

Wouldnt it be cool if Finn was Patch’s son and Kayla fell in love with that ‘Son Of A Patch!’…lol

jimh, I think he looks like Peter Reckel (Bo). Maybe Finn is Bo’s son from his Merchant Marine DAYS! Wait a second…Patch was in the Merchant Marines with Bo! Britta was the girlfriend they shared!! Britta Englund could be the mother of Finn and Bo or Steve is his father!!!

Remember the three daggers storyline? Bo, Steve and Britta have the dagger tattoo. Maybe Finn will be sporting the same tattoo!!!!!

Well, jimh…. lately, Melanie is definitely worth her salt. Her presence proved to be imperative in aiding to prevent the cataclysmic events planned by a crazed Kristen.
I want Theresa to reunite with Brady. She truly loves him and I also believe that deep down, he is still in love with her. But, no one ever finds happiness in soaps…’tis the nature of the beast.
I didn’t mind Jordan so much….but, Serena? What was that all about? What a waste of talent!!
I hope now, Eric will come down his high horse, realize he still loves Nicole…but, buuuut—-he can’t have her….what great satisfaction!!……what sweet irony!!

I agree with you that the Finn character looks like Patch…Maybe your presumption can happen. Maybe they’ll show up together….or find each other as John and Paul did. Would that be overkill, on DOOL’s part?

jimh, I completely agree with you-Melanie’s return and the onslaught of giggles is like nails on a chalkboard to me. Serena is a dud. Jordan and her family-the backstory was boring and took a very long time to come out-with Jordan just leaving. Tired of the “Daniel-Hero” too and the same fights with Nicole-along with her “Apology Tour 2015.” Tired of Theresa’s antics-which will now change for the better since she knows about the baby; although, we have no reason as to why she was so hateful and vengeful since she came to town-seemed unwarranted to me.

Teressa wasnt really given a back story to explain her bad girl behavior…just another flaw from tptb!!!

He’s really pretty.

So i guess you and some others will think of him as HUNKelberry Finn…lol

Yeah, Jimh, I hope HUNKelberry brings his friend Tom along. LOL.

I hope… they let him keep his accent….

would that not stir EVERYthing

Patrick
Patrick

ie: same thing with Victor’ nephew : Alexandross

with his “british” ??? accent and his high brow dress attire

i’d go Theresa on him, as well… and/or isn’t it nice to at least see Nicole with some one else other than …. Daniel / Eric / Brady

I think Zander is supposed to be the new EJ — type not character– and I would love Nicole to be with another bad boy who accepts her for her for who she is instead of having to change for all these pretty good boys who don’t know how lucky she even noticed them– I think Theresa is Brady’s true soul mate, that is if she doesn’t die on him, since so many of his lady loves tend to bite the big one.

Great choice, hopefully they keep longer than 3 months.

I liked him on your earlier interview with the three finalists and wish him all the best as he begins taping. I look forward to seeing him on air.

He’s cute. But based on the recent new characters they’ve introduced that have failed, I hope Finn will be better integrated and with good story. Maybe he and Nicole will hook up.

Speaking of Aussies, why doesnt Y&R cast Ingo Rademacher as A: Cane’s brother he never knew, B: a son of Colin’s from a different women because we know Colin is sleazy, or C: a relative of the Atkinson’s? Get to steppin casting!

Mo

You’re on the wrong soap.

No. They just hied an Aussie on Days. Speaking of Aussie’s Ingo WAS on GH and isnt wanted/needed so I suggest Y&R hire him.

right. so they chose the hottest one – surprise! because that worked so well with gifted “actor” Robert Scott Wilson. for all i know he might be great actor, but if you look at the glory days of Days apart from a couple of the supercouples, looks were not the most important thing. it’s not hair models that will save Days from cancellation, but i’ll gladly eat my hat if he proves to be good and not just pretty

Scott (ATWT Fan)

He was not the one I wanted to see win, but congratulations to him in best regards.

Looking forward to seeing what this hottie can do. Hopefully he will be a great addition like Christopher that plays Paul.

And if his character is studying under Dr. Daniel maybe he will replace him lol.

DAYS’ Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes On Doug and Julie’s Emotional Scenes: “We Didn’t Have To Act Them. The Love Between Us Played Them For Us.”

If you have been witnessing this week’s episodes of NBC’s Days of our Lives, you know that Julie suffered a massive heart attack that has rocked Doug to his core, and has made the once invincible Julie devastated that she may not survive this medical crisis to continue her enduring love with her husband.

The heart attack which came about after Julie minced words with Gabi (Camila Banus), has given veteran stars and Lifetime Achievement Daytime Emmy Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes, some emotional and heartfelt material to play.  As everyone knows, the popular duo has been married in real-life for decades.

On their official Twitter handle DaysHayes, the couple shared this tweet to their followers: “Those scenes between Doug and Hope, and the ones between Doug and Julie were so beautifully written, we didn’t have to act them. The love between us played them for us. Thank you, Ron!”

Of course, Bill and Susan were referencing Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati for this storyline and giving them these impactful scenes to play which mean so much to them and the longtime DAYS viewing audience.

So, what have you thought about the recent Doug and Julie scenes, since Julie suffered a heart attack?  What do you think of giving vets like Bill and Susan the ball in this storyline? Comment below.

Leann Hunley Talks Anna’s Latest Return; Stacy Haiduk & Arianne Zucker Dish Kristen’s “Unmasking” On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

On an all-new Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, three women who have been part of the latest major reveal are the special guests.  First up is Leann Hunley, who’s Anna returned to Salem only to find Tony (Thaao Penghlis) very much alive and married to who she thought was “Nicole”.

Then in the twist at John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) wedding anniversary shindig, it was revealed that the woman masquerading as “Nicole” was actually Kristen, thus devastating Anna knowing that Tony knowingly married his own sister as part of plot to gain control of DiMera Enterprises.  She later learns Tony has to spend time behind bars for shooting Ted Laurent, and has to say goodbye to him as he serves time after finding him again.

Leann chats with host Michael Fairman as she weighs-in on the latest story plot, working with her dear friend Thaao Penghlis , the men in Anna’s life through the years, and how the series has written her character over the years and more.

Later, Stacy Haiduk (Kristen) and Arianne Zucker (Nicole)  sit down with Michael and talk about the sisterhood they have formed since learning that Ari would be playing Kristen in disguise.  The dynamic duo share their thoughts on the making of, and the moment of the big reveal when John figures it all out and unmasks Kristen in front of the guests at the Jarlena wedding reception, as Brady (Eric Martsolf) is beyond duped!  In addition, both Stacy and Ari share that they are looking forward for viewers to now see the return of the real Nicole, and that Kristen will no longer be hiding under a mask, and more.
