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 »

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
