DAYS Australian Finalists For Role Of Finn: Andrew Steel, Alexander Bruszt & Tom Dalzell Discuss Their Audition! Watch The Video Interview!

Courtesy/DAYS

Last week Australian actors, Andrew Steel, Alexander Bruzt, and Tom Dalzell had their big shot and a chance of a lifetime to land a role on Days of our Lives. 

The three young actors were the three finalists in the talent search that looked far and wide down under for a new hottie to come to Salem just in time for the series 50th anniversary storylines.

While the winner is yet to be announced, you can look for the character of Finn to debut sometime in October! As fans have previously heard the role of Finn is set to be a new resident who comes to Salem under the tutelage of Dr. Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian) at University Hospital.

On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman sat down with Andrew, Alexander and Tom immediately following their audition on the set of DAYS.   The three Aussies revealed what happened in their screen tests with Arianne Zucker (Nicole), and even revealed they saw Peter Reckell (Bo) and Stephen Nichols (Patch) in the hallways!  Fans know that those two fan favorites are already back taping shows for the big anniversary splash later this year.

Watch the video interview with the three Australian finalists after the jump, then let us know after hearing them talk and watching the on-camera, who do you think has the best personality? Who is the hottest? And, who do you think will ultimately land the role?

Im going to wait and see how this character plays out…hope he is not another long lost relative of someone on the show…im more interested to hear who else is showing up for the shows 50th…and please cant the writers think of anything else for Nicole other than a break up with Daniel or Erik and the usual confrontation scenes with Theressa or whoever is on the show that day…this is all the character seems to get storywise…the actress deserves better!!!…jmo!!!

she truly does I honestly thought this she’s no longer “fun” interesting and character driven watching her “breakdown” with Daniel is unbearable at least her acting is trying LOL as she attempts for the umpteenth millionth time to meltdown and lack respect for herself I don’t know how, AZ, manages to pull the rabbit out of the hat she really needs a new direction… as i’ve always said… just “magically” bring back, her mother, Fay… and this will work wonders I wonder if down the road… after Serena leaves… are we, the audience going to “suffer” through another Nicole/Eric trial… Read more »

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.

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.
