One Life to Live Favorite John-Paul Lavoisier Returning to Days of our Lives as Phillip Kiriakis


Looks who’s coming back to Days of our Lives! John-Paul Lavoisier best-known for his role as Rex Balsom on One Life to Live (1999-2012), will be reprising his role as Phillip Kiriakis on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Lavoisier, who took on the role of Phillip in Salem from 2015-2016, is set to take on the role for a second run beginning next month.  That means, that John-Paul will take over from Jay Kenneth Johnson who last played the role when Phillip was ‘presumed’ dead.

Johnson, last aired as Phillip back in 2021, when the character attempted to frame Brady (Eric Martsolf) for his murder over their rivalry for Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin).  Meanwhile, Phillip’s mom, Kate (Lauren Koslow), sent him out of town.

Now Chloe is with Xander (Paul Telfer), so how will he explain he faked his own death? Is his plan to get Chloe back, or is he going to try and take over Titan?

Great actor. Wish he was joining GH.. I don’t watch Days.

Im so glad he’s so cute!

good news for DOL although I hopped GH would make him a Lucas recast


It’s obvious Phillip would have to come back, since Victor’s death is going to be written into the storyline very soon.

Obviously I was hoping for the original. This guy did NOT work as a recast the last time he was on. Especially that godawful Trump hair he had at the time.

Not to mention the obvious favoritism that happens anytime ReRon writes for one of his old OLTL pets.

If it’s not the real Phillip (JKJ) they really shouldn’t bother bringing him back at all.

I think JPL is a much better actor than Jay Kenneth Johnson, so I’m all for this. I just hope the writing is better than both of Philip’s last appearances. It seems like they didn’t know what to do with the character, so I’m hoping this time there’s a real story JPL can sink his teeth into.

Great news. Always enjoy watching him.

i only know jay as phip, this new one i dont remember him playing philip

I love the actor!!! Hopefully, John-Paul Lavoisier gets to show more of his charm and humor this time. He would be the perfect foil for Xander!

He was miscast at Philip.

Writers Strike Comes to an End; Leadership Votes To Conclude Work Stoppage

It’s over! After 148 days, the 2023 Writers strike will go down as the second longest in WGA union history, only a labor stoppage in 1988 was longer.

The strike will officially come to end on Wednesday at 12:01am PT.  This was due to a vote from the guild’s leadership that now has authorized its over 11,500 members to return to work.

That means: pitching and selling scripts, taking meetings, responding to notes, writers’ rooms opening up again, and more, can now restart.

The WGA committee shared that the vote, “Allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.” However, WGA East and West voted unanimously to lift the “restraining order” on Tuesday.

As the negotiators shared, the end of the strike doesn’t mean that the tentative agreement that the union reached with producers on Sunday night is a surefire thing: Union members still need to vote to ratify the contract. Union leadership announced on Tuesday that will take place between October 2nd and October 9th.

However, SAG-AFTRA still remains on strike. So, even with the writers returning to work, many productions can’t move forward without their principal actors and performers.

So soap fans, how do you feel about this news for your favorite shows? Glad that the head writers and their writing teams will be back at work as soon as this week from Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Bold and the Beautiful? Y&R’s Josh Griffith, who previously had gone Fi-Core during the 2008 strike, remained at the top rated show during the last several months.
