DAYS John Aniston Addreses Question: Would He Ask Daughter Jennifer Aniston To Appear On The NBC Soap?

John Aniston is celebrating his 30th year on Days of our Lives as Victor Kiriakis, and he gave a recent interview to Glamour’s Jessica Radloff.

During their chat Aniston reveals: what storyline made him most anxious, his favorite DAYS leading ladies, favorite storylines, and of course, some anecdotes the  way that they can only be delivered by the revered Aniston. One of the big questions that has resurfaced from time to time  by media outlets has been if John thinks he can ever get his superstar daughter – motion picture and television actress – Jennifer Aniston to appear on the long-running NBC soap opera (now celebrating its 50th year on the air), so they could work together as father and daughter?

Aniston began answering the question like this to Glamour:  “We sort of worked together on Search for Tomorrow.  She was an extra. (Laughs)  She was 13 or 14 years old. I had her down at the studio one day and Jane Krakowski was on the show, and Jennifer was in the green room and met Jane and they were talking.”

Then when asked if he has ever asked Jennifer to appear on DAYS? John admitted:  “No. But, yeah, (it would be cute). There’s elusion to Victor’s staff…”  Radloff suggested Jen play a member of the Kirakis staff, to which John replied jokingly:  “Yeah, she could, but all we have is the butler. And you never see the butler.”

So, do you think it’s time John asked Jennifer Aniston to do a few scenes with him on DAYS, and make a guest appearance? Share your thoughts below, and let us know if you would want to see it happen!

I am surprised that John Aniston never worked with Jennifer on “Friends”–especially since the show had a running storyline where Joey had a role on “Days of Our Lives.”

It would be phenomenal if she did a cameo & worked with her father for a few scenes.

I have always wondered why she hasn’t done a cameo. I thought maybe he was against it–but it doesn’t sound like it. I would think NBC would have pushed for it during Friends.

I think that decision would be up to the show, so the better question should have been has Days ever asked John to ask his daughter to be on the show. Otherwise I doubt actors can just walk in and tell producers to put a relative into the show, although in this case, they might not care because of her fame, but if she was just another struggling actor or B list then might have an issue with a cast member doing that.

I would like to see her appear on the show for a few days—would be a good spin on stunt casting and with all her success in movies, it isn’t likely that this appearance would do anything to her already-mega career.

At long last, I’ve always wanted to know the answer! Now SHE would have been a 50th Anniversary surprise! It’s funny, if John would have been on any other show, most assuredly GH, they would have taken advantage of his Hollywood royalty relations long ago. Valentini is that kind of go-getter. He will scour and scrape. Carlivati would have dropped references in his dialogue over and over again (can’t you just picture him telling Nicole “You’re life’s a joke, you’re broke. Your love life’s DOA”?). But Corday/NBC/Sony seems to always have been, perhaps, respectful of this boundary and never chose… Read more »

I think it would be great see that happening. I am surprised that these two have not worked together on friends and /or Days of our lives. I know Joey played on days of our lives but not John’s daughter. Interesting. I am always a fan of these two. I hope to see Jennifer on days some time.

It is not up to the actors to tell producers who to have on the show. I would prefer he appear in one of her movies than her appearing on Days.

Jen owes that for her Dad.. it would be fun and it would also help her dad at Days and the ratings…. why would she not do it.. I am not too much of a fan of hers.. I think she needs to be a nicer daughter to her Dad.. but of course I know nothing of their relationship .. but just think that a daughter would do something fun for her dad like this… .. Just sayin……..

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 . #❤️ #😘”
