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

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 Of Our Lives

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

So place your bets on who will turn out to be the murderer via the comment section below and let us know what you thoughts on Mike’s run on DAYS!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
