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!!!

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… Read more »

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!!!

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.

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!

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

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.

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
