According to Soaps.com, their sources are reporting the recently axed Mark Hapka (Dr. Nathan Horton) is heading back to Salem!  Seems that the actor who let-go this past January for what the series cited as, “Creative differences and a “writers choice” for Nathan’s “departure” is making some sort of return.

This news comes on the heels of our earlier report that Fransisco San Martin has been fired in the role of Dario Hernandez, who looked to be the new love interest of Melanie Layton, played by Molly Burnett. Is DAYS finally going to see the error of their ways, and reunite Melanie with Nathan?  Let’s hope!  Stay tuned.

I didn’t like the way Nathan was written before but with new writers I think he and Melanie will be great. Mark is a great actor and one heck of a hunk too. I for one am happy he is coming back.

I’m really glad he’s coming back, but not glad he will be paired with the annoying melanie. Ugh!!! Hate her silly voice and acting.

Great news that Mark Hapka is to return to DAYS. It’s about time these writers rectified their mistake in letting go of the character of Nathan before we’d even had a chance to watch his relationship with Melanie develop. Melanie with Dario just wasn’t doing it for me – the guy playing him is a terrible actor – and he doesn’t have one tenth the depth that MH has! Let’s hope this time around we see some more romance between them and a slower pace in terms of relationship development. Remember, these two have been through a life-threatening experience (beating a deadly virus) together and then POW! Nathan was gone. Very messy and ludicrous writing but hopefully this is a thing of the past.

OMG I’m so glad to hear that Mark Hapka is back, I can’t wait to see Melanie and Nathon face to face. I hope they will get back together. Great fantastic news … Good job DOOL in getting him back on the show.
I just love him.

I don’t really like Nathan or the actor. I’d rather they keep some of the actors they have rather than bring Nathan and others back. It’s not the actors–it’s the story.

The latest according to Soaps She Knows, is that Mark Hapka is NOT scheduled to return to Days. It was a false report!

ew not Nathan please! He’s so whiny and pitiful. If anything bring back Dario, he was a wonderful actor, he and Melanie had such great chemistry between them.

I think Dario needs to come back, he and Melanie were perfect for each other!! I say bring them both back and start a real love triangle, but in the end she has to end up with Dario. DOOL just keeps screwing up with their damn cuts. Dario was a great addition and letting him go was a giant mistake. Melanie and Dario had AMAZING chemistry. BRING BACK DARIO!

DAYS’ Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes On Doug and Julie’s Emotional Scenes: “We Didn’t Have To Act Them. The Love Between Us Played Them For Us.”

If you have been witnessing this week’s episodes of NBC’s Days of our Lives, you know that Julie suffered a massive heart attack that has rocked Doug to his core, and has made the once invincible Julie devastated that she may not survive this medical crisis to continue her enduring love with her husband.

The heart attack which came about after Julie minced words with Gabi (Camila Banus), has given veteran stars and Lifetime Achievement Daytime Emmy Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes, some emotional and heartfelt material to play.  As everyone knows, the popular duo has been married in real-life for decades.

On their official Twitter handle DaysHayes, the couple shared this tweet to their followers: “Those scenes between Doug and Hope, and the ones between Doug and Julie were so beautifully written, we didn’t have to act them. The love between us played them for us. Thank you, Ron!”

Of course, Bill and Susan were referencing Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati for this storyline and giving them these impactful scenes to play which mean so much to them and the longtime DAYS viewing audience.

So, what have you thought about the recent Doug and Julie scenes, since Julie suffered a heart attack?  What do you think of giving vets like Bill and Susan the ball in this storyline? Comment below.
