Days of our Lives has made the decision to let-go of Jordi Vilasuso, who has played Dario Hernandez on the NBC daytime drama series.

In a heartfelt message to his followers, fans, DAYS colleagues and co-stars, Jordi posted: “Yes, it’s true- my Days are numbered. I’ve been wanting to speak on this for awhile but out of respect and love for the show I’ve stayed quiet. @nbcdays has brought me so much joy! NBC, Sony, Ken Corday @gregmeng , Albert Alarr, and the entire crew who make this show possible have all been such pleasure to work for and with.

Although I wish Dario would have gone in a different direction, being a part of the Hernandez family was one of the best parts of the gig thanks to @abonemartinez , @ggering, and @camilabanus. Mi familia always took me on a rollercoaster of belly hurting laughter and tears that I would look forward to whenever I got the opportunity to mix it up with them.

I’m grateful to the women that escaped Dario’s grasp as well.. 😉 @ari8675@ximenaduque, and @_marcimiller_ are such beautiful actors both inside and out and always inspired me to work at a higher level.

Lastly, the fans! You are the ones who keep this show going. I’ve gotten to know some of you personally and your passion for the stories and characters is infectious. Your opinions of Dario were hilarious and often mutually shared! Ha!

So here’s to @nbcdays ! May you have many more years to come! It’s been a hell of a ride! #dool #nextchapter#lookingforward

Jordi will last be seen on-air through the end of this month.

So, sad to know Jordi is exiting DAYS?  What did you think of the character of Dario Hernandez? Comment below.

Yet another example of DAYS hiring a great actor who can do wonders with any role, and then saddling them with terrible material and poor character development. Same thing happened with Vincent Irizzary, John-Paul Lavoisier and even A Martinez. Not to mention Sarah Brown as Madison James and Tamara Braun as Taylor Walker. And when they made the smart move to bring TB back as Ava Vitali, they went and killed her off. What a terrible mistake, she could have been a great villainess – imagine Ava joining forces with Andre to reek havoc on Salem. But instead, her return… Read more »

I’ll add Melissa Archer to your list. Her character, Serena, was painted into a corner with that never ending elephant statue story.

All shows do this! Look at that list you named! All were Emmy winners or at least nominees. These shows grab the best talent from the past but have no roles prepared for them…so they make it up as they go. Why not Vincent as Mike Horton? Why not ANY female as Sarah Horton or Meliss?? We don’t need more test tube or fake kids from Maggie….she has kids!!! Many viewers have never cared about Rafe since his introduction almost a decade ago. Why would we care about his long lost family?? And any writer/show that can waste the charm… Read more »

I really MISS… Tamara Braun… as Ava Vitali. Man.. she was HOT intriguing and the heat… dare I say… generated. this trio : Kayla / Steve / Ava… could have generated YEARS of story I’d like to prop : Ava and Steve ( Patch ) SON. he’s a GOOD ACTor. @DAYS ! he’s a keeper. Lucas Adams as Tripp Dalton. END this lame story of exacting revenge for “who murdered” his mother. it’s rather affecting to watch Tripp WITH his “step-mother” Kayla ! that’s the joy of watching Kayla as well… reacting and being a mother to a good actor.… Read more »

for, “ALL” – intent – AND – Purpose –   ie:  from TPTB to ep to writing to thee best cast in daytime… Days of OUR Lives I don’t know… if you have the best cast and that’s not inspiration enough Eileen Davidson Kassie DePaiva Ali Sweeney Chandler Massey he’s promising a Lucas story !    this is big… My man Lucas is up and running. Judy Evans is doing double duty… like no other.. she’s top of the line count on and surpasses with her natural ability … Bonnie and Adrienne… two Judys’ YES if DAYS keeps Tripp; then its more… Read more »

all i’m asking for… is just a little bitsy BREAK of Hope ! argh! PLEASE. I will never get Hope and Rafe. Rafe is wasted. bring back the original Lauren Boles to flesh out and make Hope bearable…. because the forced romance with Rafe is NOT GOING TO BE. so let Hope adopt “Cierra Alice”… and that’s how Lauren Boles returns. with a new name of course… are they recasting Cierra Alice ? I read a post that wants Cierra and Tripp as the new supercouple… I LIKE THIS IDEA ENOUGH with the overload and stuffed to the gills of… Read more »

I agree with your assessment, Jimmy (coincidentally my real name!). DAYS has been oddly unable to sustain the great talent it attracted with strong fan expectation and media fanfare. I went to DAYS after ATWT was cancelled and have had mixed satisfaction. Hoping RC can right the ship with some cast pruning and focus on solid stories but… please do not get too “out there” with the plotting and drama. Right off we will have some sort of resurrection (to explain Chandler Massey’s return) but I hope we can enjoy the solid family lives DAYS an be so good at.… Read more »

Spot. On.

Agree about Melissa Archer as well.

No matter how good the actor is, bad writing will drag you down. DAYS has had a surfeit of bad writing for several years now. Even veterans (Hope, Nicole, Jennifer etc) were given horrible material that no one could spin in to gold.

I hope the turn-around is real this time.

I am very sorry to hear this news; but, not surprised. I always wondered by his character was there. They never took the time to make Dario a part of the larger community. They never let him connect with other characters other than his family. Even the family connection was shaky. He was friends with Nicole and Marie Wilson’s character. Both friendships died on the vine. Once again, TPTB hire a strong, proven actor and have no idea what to do with him. Don’t they have some plan in mind before they hire these people? I really like Jordi and… Read more »

That last sentence — I think it is like my beloved New York Yankees when George Steinbrenner was still alive. They would go out and BUY big names but most of the time they did not have chemistry with the team or the team did not know what to do with them. Oftentimes they had too many big names and nowhere to put them. But I would see this time and again. Instead of developing what they already had, they would have to go after the latest free agent even if they didn’t need him. I think this is the… Read more »

DAYS loves an endless, tedious triangle. Sami Carrie Austin. Hope Bo Billie. Sean Belle Phillip.

No one can drag these things out for four five years like DAYS.

What the hell? Why this stupid move? For once, I was getting to know Dario because when the character was on before, he had been brought on then was out and he hadn’t even been fleshed out. At least Jordi was able to bring a couple of layers to the character so that we could see who he was and we knew he could be redeemed. Guess we will never know now. Best thing DAYS could do at this point is to leave the character out of sight and out of mind since they feel they don’t know where to… Read more »

I’m not going to miss Dario, but will miss Jordi. I would love to have him go to another soap and play a non-criminal role. Day really ruined Dario in the end.

I’ve loved and hated Dario so you did a great job! You will be missed. The one thing I know for sure……once apart of Days, you’re always a part of Days! Fans never let you go so watch out! You’ll be Dario for the rest of your days! Thank you and the best always.

I can’t get past the way the executives treated A Martinez. He’d never say it – but they (Meng and Carlivati) treated him horribly and did quite the disservice.

I wish Jordi well. He played it with all his heart even when only given scraps.

The questions remains: Will Ron Carlivati or will Greg Meng be the one to put out their cigarette on the cold studio floor as the last parting shot once this show meets it’s fate in January?

I don’t believe Ron had anything to do with his leaving. Many of the stories were in place when he arrived.

I have been watching since 1967. They took the character of Dario and wrote him in to a corner. They left him with no redeeming qualities. They did it to A Martinez as well. The one family member I have NEVER warmed up to is Gabbi. The girl who calls herself Abbey’s best friend and keeps going after her friends husband. Her they can send packing. So much talent on this show, especially the vets, and they shove characters down our throat that we simply don’t care about. Send Claire to live with her parents please. Kyler Pettis is fabulous… Read more »

Agreeeeeeed, Andrea. I have said it in the past how Gabi has been after Chad since forever. I don’t buy the innocence.
Theo!!!! I love him. He is a such a “makes a difference”, class act, young actor, in his own quiet way. He has such presence….and, hot, to boot. What an original.

I agree about Theo and Claire; he’s great and she’s mild.

Bites that he’s let go before Ron C. was able to really write for Dario.

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

Photo: JPI

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Photo: JPI

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

Photo: BlueAeris

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
