And yet another hunk joins the Salem line-up … and just in time for Christmas!   Former As the World Turns star, Mark Collier has joined NBC’s Days of our Lives in the role of Liam!  Collier will first appear on-screen by the end of December.

On-Air On-Soaps confirmed Collier’s arrival to the long running soap opera with a representative from DAYS.

And in an odd twist-of-fate,both former Oakdale Mike Kasnoff’s will be working together on the NBC soap!  Shawn Christian (Daniel ) originated the role of Mike on As the World Turns, and Collier was the recast when the show decided to bring Mike back to the canvas.

Will Daniel and Liam know each other from their past? What brings Liam to Salem? Who do you think he will be paired with romantically in story?  Weigh-in!

Liam…maybe a Jonas…and paired with Jen after her break up with Danial? Or maybe paired with Nicole just as Eric realizes he has feelings for her?

He shouldve played Frankie Brady who is still in love with Jennifer

I think it’s about time for Hope to have another love interest. Maybe finally confide what is really going on with Bo?

Unclepaco

I’m hoping the same. It’s time for Hope to have someone again and some excitement in her life again. Bo’s not coming back. Which I’m glad he’s not. He was boring.

Yum! Kinda makes me wish I watched “Days of Our Lives” but I have more sense than that. 🙂

You don’t know what you are missing! DAYS is good right now. There is a reason why it won Outstanding Drama Series at the Emmys! DAYS and GH are great right now!

gloria
gloria

You are right Phil. I have trouble deciding which to watch first (I record them)
Nicole sure deserves some happiness & a great new man!

Phil
Phil

Gloria, I tape them both too. My wife and I watch GH together, but DAYS I watch on my own so which one I watch first depends on if she is around or not. I would probably choose DAYS first otherwise. DAYS does family better than any show on daytime these days. I would like to see Nicole get her own storyline, but one that does not revolve around a man!

Drake

I hear you Joshua but this might be all the incentive I need to start watching Days again.

LOL he is man candy. I actually watched the show from 1977 to 1987 (when it was really GOOD!) and before it became white trashy and the soap opera version of “The Jerry Springer Show.” Gregg Marx was always shirtless on the show in the early ’80’s. Now that was brilliant!

Libby

My guess is Liam may be a match for Jennifer. MARKING the end of Daniffer.

Jules

I’m guessing he has something to do with Jordan. But that’s just my guess…..

Leslie

For a moment, I thought he might be a “Bo” recast…interesting to see whom he’ll be paired with down the line.

Tori
Tori

I wonder if he is somehow connected to Rafe’s physical therapist’s past?

Mark Y

Good for Mark. Nice to see him back.

Glad Mark is with DOOL. Bold and Beautiful missed the opportunity to hire him as Ridge.

Mo
Mo

ooh, he would have been good.

Johnny
Johnny

lol. He is about 20 years too young to play Ridge.

gloria

At least, ha!

AbbyS.
AbbyS.

I’m excited about this, especially if Liam gets involved with Hope. It’s about time DOOL featured Hope/Kristian Alfonso more than they have. I liked Mark Collier on ATWT and think he’ll be a great addition to DOOL.

Phil
Phil

Little old to be Chad and young to be Bo… I wonder if he will have any connection to a major family… Would be nice if he were a Horton… Maybe he is Jordan’s ex! He will be paired with Jordan or maybe Hope or Teresa!

Johnny
Johnny

I always loved how Mike Kasnoff got younger and younger with each subsequent recast. Lol. He started out 25 and 15 years later he was 26. Lol. But I like Collier. He has an easy going affable charm. Maybe Bo Brady has gone through a similar de-aging and he will play Bo!

Derek
Derek

How old is Bo supposed to be? Mark Collier is 43, so even if Bo is supposed to be late 40s, that could still work.

Johnny
Johnny

Well..I know applying age logic to soaps is an absurd proposition…lol…however…Bo’s son Shawn graduated high school in 2002. That makes him now pushing 30. So Bo has to be over 50 as it was established that Bo was in the merchant marines in the late 70’s and early 80’s. So…could Collier play Bo…yes. He just looks younger and has a baby face and he could easily play a character in his 30’s as most actors do play younger…not older. But…this is a show where Kevin Dobson and John Ingle played the same role of Mickey Horton. They are 15 years apart.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I think now he should have been cast as Frankie Brady…Jens old boyfriend…they rekindle their old romance just as J.J. begins to like Danial for helping him out and tries to get him back with his mom…

Johnny
Johnny

Now I am jealous. Lol. What an awesome idea!! It boggles my mind that fans can come up with such awesome ideas and the people who are supposedly the talented professionals running these shows can’t!

Carole

I love it! Hopefully they’ll be brothers

Patrick
Patrick

‘this’ – “lovefest” w/daniel knows no bounds apparently…

go figure… this is my greatest fear… that they may very well end up being brothers.

just what we need….. “MORE” daniel please! please? please!?!?

DAYS is so good… but, why does it have to be thru the eyes of UNheralded Daniel

ME1987
ME1987

So true I feel like him & Abby are the worst actors he over acts & Abby has no emotion she’s just a pretty face. Kristen beyond over acts but it’s entertaining when she does it. Sami & her random loud outburst then seconds later looking like somebody threw egg on her face is so annoying. Nicole is the only all around character who can do it all & James Scott as Ej.

Jake NJ

I think he will be a love interest for Hope.

This is what I was thinking also

Very good addition to the cast

4everDAYS

I think Liam will turn out to be Daniel’s brother, another egg child of Maggie’s!

4everDAYS

He could be the new Jack! Radical reconstructive surgery without amnesia. Jack posing as someone new!!!

4everDAYS
4everDAYS

Bo with radical reconstructive surgery due to his undercover work to bring Stefano down!!!

Harlee

This is great news and I wish he would be the new ‘Bo” because he make a great Bo Brady and Hope needs some badly because she’s has to be “itchin’ for some lovin”!

Mary SF

Don’t give up hope– he could be the new Bo. Remember when DH came on the show, he was just this mystery man, who turned out to be Roman, who turned out to an Aliman, who turn out to be Stefano’s half brother. On this show, anyone can turn into anyone— Liam could be a brainwashed Bo—-either by Stefano’s hand or even the ISA. stranger things have happened on this show. If it looks like a duck and an acts like a duck, on DAYS it is probably a giraffe LOL.

4everDAYS

Your comment was spot on!!! I laughed so hard, I had to wait to reply!!! Thank you!!!

Great hire. I wonder if this is to make up for numerous cast members leaving.

Excellent! Love Mark, he’s an excellent actor. Now bring back Sarah Joy Brown as Madison James!

Rodd

Mark was super sexy on ATWT. I was kind of hoping he’d be a returned Mike Horton. But, DOOL is lucky to have him. I hope they develop his character well and don’t waste his talents.

4everDAYS

No way!!! Too many Mikes already. It would be cool to have Michael T. Weise back in that role! Sorry for any and all spelling errors.

Becky litchfield

I totally agree. Really liked him as Dr. Mike Horton.

Patrick

can you imagine… the fan roar of approval…

if, they did bring back Mike Horton….man… if they’d just bring back Laura and Bill Horton…. played by uber sexy John Martin

i’d lose it

I could see Mark Collier w/Hope… he has that Bo resemblence and appeal

Becky litchfield

Would rather see Robert Kelker Kelly come back and play Bo again.

He is a new person on the show people!!

I think either Abigail or Nicole. Leaning more towards Nicole.

Jennifer’s new love interest. Or perhaps Abigail’s or both. Oh La la

I think Liam will be paired with Hope Brady!

I agree he would be a great match for Hope..

Satan

No connection with Daniel, for the love of all that’s unholy.

The time travelling egg mutant eats up enough airtime as it is.

Not sure how I would feel about a Bo recast. Wasn’t crazy about the last one and that was what… 20 years ago?

gmann23

It would be great if Mark were to play Peter Blake DiMera!

Karen

Time for Hope to have a new guy or maybe he could be Bo, twin brother that no one knew abt

Karen

He would be great with Hope

Karen

BO replacement

It would be great if he was Bo Brady

He could be one of Will’s college proffessors. I’m a bad speller whom did not attend college. LOL

Hannah

Nicole needs to find some happiness; she has waited long enough. She and Mark would make a great pair. Plus, Nicole is the best female actress on the show. Far too many of the very young set for my taste -Will should stay gone; no recast; Sami is getting to me – yell, have sex, yell, have sex – boring. Rafe needs to get out of the hospital and back in the picture, too. I like Justin Kierakis, too, but not so much with Adrianne.

Melanie
Melanie

Oh I can’t wait to see him on Days! Honestly…I think he needs to be paired up with Hope if Bo isn’t coming back. I hate to see Hope with anyone else…but if he isn’t coming back, then she needs a hot new man! I think they would make a great looking couple. And I think Daniel and Nicole should get back together. I don’t like seeing Dr. Dan with Jennifer.

Donna
Donna

I agree with you Melanie. If Bo isn’t coming back he would look good with Hope. I do like Daniel and Jennifer together though, but she needs to get a life and a backbone.

Melanie
Melanie

Oh…I don’t want him to be Bo that had plastic surgery. Let him be a new character…and a good guy!

Donna
Donna

He is playing a guy names Liam, who know Daniel one of the Drs at University Hospital. I hear there will be a major drug dealer coming to Salem. Maybe it is him. I think he would be a great matchup for Hope. Maybe he has a past with Jordan. Interesting… Can’t wait to see.

lady.c
lady.c

He would be so good for Nicole she really needs a good man, and I want Eric and Brady to want her even more when they see her with her new man!!!!!

uberdaysfan
uberdaysfan

I think he should definately be a new character unconnected to either family. Someone that NICOLE can get together with. My gosh that character deserves some happiness. Since Kate, Gabi & Sami are in a world of legal hurt, give Nicky a positive storyline for a while.

Shirl Gallo
Shirl Gallo

Give him to Abby so she will leave EJ alone….Good golly DOOL don’t mess a good thing. Sami and EJ belong together. They are the glue to your show. Otherwise many will just turn it off.

pat

Why didn’t B&B pick up Collier as Ridge Forrester?

Cindy

I am so excited Kristen is coming backs to days she does do things, but u have to feel sry for her cause she has gentle side and she just cool!!!! I hate how rafe fell in front of nick It mad me sad for rafe however loved seen where he hid behind tree watching nick w cane!!!! Truly made me lol!!! I wish Gabi would tell big bro truth so he can help her!!! Really sad Sami leaving I love her character and feel she will be hard act to follow!!!! Makes me wonder if ej and abby are new super couple if so poor jennifer !!!and she thought kk was her rebel child !!!

REPLAY: Days of our Lives 53rd Anniversary Facebook Live Event From The Set: A Special Tribute, Preview Of The DOOL App & Fun Moments with the Cast!

It’s been a big week for Days of our Lives, culminating in Saturday’s annual Day of Days event with the fans and the cast in celebration of the long-running daytime dramas 53 years on the air!

Late last week, a fun and never-before-seen Facebook Live event kicked-off the last several days of fun, and was hosted on the NBC official Facebook for Days of our Lives.

It was during the live event that fans were treated to some behind the scenes access, and several previews of the new DOOL app that was also released on all mobile devices the day of the series anniversary on Thursday

During the event, Soap Opera Digest’s Stephanie Sloane, led viewers through a hilarious opening segment, which featured a walk through the sets with various cast members doing some very familiar soap tropes from: shirtless hunks, to bitch-slaps, a twist on a soapy monologue, and more.

Later, following John and Marlena’s nuptials on-air, Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn along with Mary Beth Evans, James Reynolds, and host for the segment, Martha Madison, chatted about the long-awaited wedding for Jarlena fans.

Bill and Susan Hayes were on-hand to tell the audience all about the “Video Vault” section of the new DOOL app, where fans can find classic clips from DAYS history.

Then, DAYS executive producer, Ken Corday presided over the annual cake-cutting ceremony, honoring the cast and the crew for their accomplishments of keeping the show strong and continuing its legacy for 53 years and counting.

Several cast members took part in a special tribute honoring the late Peggy McCay (Caroline Brady), which was an emotional high point of the event. Eric Martsolf led several key members of the cast who worked with Peggy, as they shared remembrances of this one-of-a-kind actress.   Later, Galen Gering, Lauren Koslow, Nadia Bjorlin and Eric Martsolf did a little “Show and Tell” preview of some of their videos inside the new DOOL app.

Martha Madison returned to the backstage celebration where cast and crew took photos against the step and repeat for the series 53rd anniversary and the launch of the DOOL app.  Madison chatted with several cast and producers who stopped by including returning fan favorite, Matt Ashford (Jack Deveraux).

The facebook live event concluded when Stephanie Sloane walked into the celebration with the cast as they gave a big “Thank you” to the fans for keeping the show on the air, and telling them to check out the new DOOL app for all the exclusive, fun content now and in the days and months ahead.
