It will be a wrap on-air for Kyle Lowder next week at Days of our Lives.  The actor who came back to the NBC soap opera, where he first appeared as Brady Black from 2000-2005, and this go-round has taken on the role of Rex Brady beginning in 2018, will be exiting the daytime drama series.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now; they have an interview with Lowder on his surprising departure.

On Friday, Lowder shared his thoughts on his exit from Salem via his Instagram account expressing: “One more week! Man, this has been fun. So grateful to have returned over the past year to the place where it all started for me, almost two decades ago. This show, and everyone associated with it, both in front of and behind the camera, will always be very special to me. My most sincere and heartfelt appreciation to the powers that be at @nbcdays and @nbc . And of course to all of you, the fans, for your unbridled love and enthusiasm. You remind me every single day of why I truly love what I do. Farewell, and thank you.”

In story, Rex has had an on-again off-again relationship with Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey), and she, despite herself, found herself attracted and falling for his brother, Eric, played by Greg Vaughan.  Just how will Rex leave the canvas? Stay tuned.

Ya; had read a while ago he was leaving. Not happy…gorgrous looking, really good actor taken off the canvas…along with characters Claire, Tripp, Chloe, the recently departed Abigail, Chad, Lucas..they can start Days of Our Lives part Deux..that cast will soon be larger than the show they were fired from!
Will miss seeing the stunning “Rex” in Salem. He wasn’t given good material. Wasted his talent… Looking forward to his next projects.

I really liked him as Rex! He made some very funny acting choices that made him a loveable loser. But he was a victim of Ron C’s plot driven writing. Rex was not so much a character as he was an appendage…a plot device to manufacture drama where there really didnt need to be any. His acting skills have grown immeasurably and he could have been a worthwhile leading man in his own right with more nuanced writing. He looks better than he did when he started on Days almost 20 years ago. It is to his credit, and Eric Martsolf (who has fully become Brady), that I never saw him as former Brady. He really became Rex. I hope he lands on a show that can fully utilize his talents.

I wasn’t watching Days when Kyle was on before, so I have nothing to compare to.
I gotta say, I was not impressed with the Rex character, so I’m not sad he’s leaving. Nothing against KL, but I didn’t like Rex OR his love interest Sarah. I just wish he was taking Sarah with him when he goes. I like her even less than Rex!
I’m a little behind in watching the show, but I’m guessing they are going ‘there’ with Eric & Sarah? Oh well, that’s OK. I can just FF all their scenes together.

He should be recast as Drew on GH!

He’s probably in the right age group, but he looks more like he would be Shiloh’s brother than Jason’s. And Shiloh doesn’t need any family, considering he’s lucky if he’s not in Hell by Labor Day.

Sure hope you aren’t serious! After this last fiasco as Rex, where he played an absolute ass, the mere thought of him as Drew makes me nauseas. I’d rather they just let Roger Howarth keep playing Franco, who thinks he’s Drew.

So 8/2/2019 is the last time we will see him after he left Victor’s house?

No, he showed up at Eric’s apartment and they will have a fight from the previews I saw.

I’m sad that Kyle Lowder is leaving daytime again! Honestly, the idea of him taking on the role of Rex Brady was fantastic, and brought great depth, not only to the role, but to the soap’s canvas. However, the character was written on a one-note flatline, and unfortunately just did not go anywhere. It’s an unfortunate case of poor writing choices. Hoping Lowder can return down the line!

So Sorry to see you leave ;-(
Will miss you – Again !!!
Hopefully YOU’LL be Back☺

he can always return…but Days and GH need writing improvement…Y&R stays focused on its vets and keeps the show more down to earth and stays no1 that way…cheap lazy writing hurts Days and GH…

I’ll miss Rex and Kyle. Hopefully he can return.

I hope his departure doesn’t mean dopey-mopey Eric and lackluter 15th-Century Sarah are now on their way to becoming a couple?
Eric has a knack for coveting other men’s women, albeit Rex deserves it. Cheating on one’s mate, never ends well.
Beside the fact that Nicole is alive…..at least, maybe? Eric came alive with her. So did she–pardon the double-entendre.
Aside—–Will Stefan ( love Brandon) be blamed for Ted’s death? Getting silly now—the entire Tony-is-alive/Kristin/fake Nicole thing is not entertaing—bring Susan back, please, but in the form of Eileen Davidson.

I have been looking all over for you! Hope you are on vacation having a great time with your family. I thought I’d never get back, after I botched up my Email. My granddaughter seems to have gotten me squared away though, but I have to tell you I was having MFtv withdrawal symptoms there for a while. Lots of good stuff happening, especially on GH. Yes, we lost Billy Miller, but the up coming SLs look promising. Will be looking forward to hearing from you, about your summer escapades.

Hi, Miss Violet,
I am on the island….it is brutal—usually, this time of year it isn’t so crowded as student are be gone by now—-but it’s black week on MV and Obama is here—-so, as you can imagine—-we picked the wrong time to have a reunion.
I am very glad you’re all set– high-five to your granddaughter—-
I will definitely keep you posted when I have a little breathing time, my love…
❤️Stay well…..

Somebody please feel free to co4ect me if I am wrong. But was he the actor who played Rick Forrester when they had the 5 minute storyline of Rick and Taylor’s affair? Just wondering.

Yes, pretty sure he was still playing the part then, and also was the cause of Steffy’s twin Phobie’s death in a car crash.

Days of our Lives fans love her as as Carrie Brady, and are often very happy when they find out Christie Clark is back for a visit taping episodes of the NBC soap opera.  But that’s not what’s happening right now.  Right now, we need Christie to get all her strength back.

Clark shared via her Instagram today a health update on her battle with the coronavirus that hit both her and her husband while they have been living in the United Kingdom.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”
