After months of silence, Shawn Christian (Daniel) has finally broken his on Wednesday with a tweet, as DAYS fans are seeing the last of him on the long-running NBC soap opera.

In story, Dr. Daniel Jonas is brain dead following a horrific New Year’s Eve car crash leaving both Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Eric (Greg Vaughan) in need of a heart. University Hospital doctors,  Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Fynn (Alexander Bruzt) are keeping Daniel’s organs alive while a major decision is made by Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) as to who will get the good doctor’s heart since he is an organ donor and a match for both men.

Today, Christian thanked his fans for their enduring support during his eight years with DAYS relating:  “Your outpouring of love is deeply appreciated. Ur messages have me speechless, humbled & grateful to have shared Dr. Jonas’ life with u all.”

Will you miss Shawn and Dr. Jonas in Salem?  What did you think of the sentiments he shared to the fans today? Did you have a favorite Daniel storyline or romance through the years?  Comment below!

He never caught on and the desperate way the writers would try to connect him with anyone never made him endearing. Shoving characters down any throat that’s available isn’t very creative or compelling. He’s so cute it’s such a shame. Maybe his reformed bad of a sudden daughter Melanie (the most irritating) will never be seen again.

I agree that there were certainly times I felt he was shoved down our throat! I liked him a little bit when he was with Chloe, but they (the powers at be) didn’t seem to want to make that work. I thought he had chemistry with Lisa Rinna when she came back but they quickly moved him back to Jennifer – which ruined both of their characters during that time. It was certainly time for the character to move on. Agree he is a cutie!

Lol! I have to agree about everything including Melanie. He was just a dud all around. Cute but dull.

And just what do you do for a living, that you are calling him a did ? Go ahead and lie because I know you won’t be truthful

What I do for a living has nothing to do with this character being a dud. That’s probably the stupidest comment I’ve ever responded too. Separate character from actor Janice! Doh!!

Agree about Melanie, she’s like 28 going on 12 – regarding the way
she is depicted or perhaps the way she is interpreted by the actress who
portrays her.

My problem was the show got to be too much Jonas and having Nicole going back and forth between him and Erik..before that it was too much with him and Jen-they lacked chemistry…i suffered from Jonas burnout…also at the same time it got to be too much with Will, Sonny, and Paul…too much of both storylines and very little else going on with the rest of the cast…more balance between all characters like it is written now has improved things but they didnt have to kill off some of the characters to do this…i wouldve had Will and Sonny simply… Read more »

So happy to finally see the end of the Jonas reign. Since his backburning, the show has become much much better. Just hope Melanie isn’t back permanently.

Same here. I have no problem with Maggie here and there but not full time. I hated that Brady was with her.

Well I didn’t think it was necessary to “kill” off the character, but I will not miss Daniel at all. It had nothing to do with the actor, just the way the wrote him over the years, he went from being the man whore of Salem who slept with anyone and anything to Saint Danny who could no wrong– both extremes were boring. A truly interesting character has all kinds of shades of grey, which is why characters like Bo, Steve, EJ and others like them were memorable, and the Daniels of the soaps are soon forgotten. Good luck to… Read more »

I feel sorry for Suzanne Rogers. Maggie had three children and now the only one on the canvass these past few years is dead leaving her without any blood relatives on the show. I hope that the writers bring back one or both of her daughters next time they need a new female character. DAYS’ Hortons are the bedrock of Salem and now with Kate Mansi leaving, there will be even fewer. Julie’s son, David, is never mentioned and neither is her grandson, Scotty. Doug had a son with Rebecca, Dougie, and he’s never mentioned. And don’t even get me… Read more »

I so agree!!!!! Incorparate more of the Horton’s in the storyline, even a mention of them would be nice. Some of us viewers have been with the show since we were teenagers and remember the old characters. I DO LOVE that most of the characters have remained as the same actors….Kayla,Kim,Steve.
Daniel was a favorite and I wish he had become more of an anchor in the stories. He was SOO SOOO easy to drool over!!!

Reagan
Guest

I’ve been wishing that they would bring Scotty back w/ the guy who’s over at GH playing Rick Lansing… b/c they’re not utilizing him on GH. Agree that one of Maggie’s daughters needs to come back.

Crushing scenes today with Nicole and Maggie…. not sure how actors laying in that bed can hold back the tears themselves….

I loved that Nicole finally had her happy ending…for a minute. Since they are together in real life, I would think after her contract is up that she may as well say bye bye…

Message to TPTB… these new “kids” are not going to carry this show so… better have a Plan B!

blake

They should not have recast Ciara, and the other teens are just as bad. I like Joey though.

CeeCee

I like Joey, too, blake. But, I expect TPTB will ruin him somehow….another teen caught in the Black Widow’s web ‘melodrama’….same old, same old. I think we all agree with Elite about a Plan B. These kids ain’t working for me either. It is what it is, I guess. If things can remain status quo for a loooong while, I will be happy……please do not attach Jen with any man. She is at her worst when ‘entangled’. She has a penchant for bringing the guy down with her. I honestly can’t remember her smile. I feel badly for Nicole. I… Read more »

I like Joey too, I fast forward through the teenager scenes, it was much better when they were young. I do not like the characters Chase and Ciara, I tried but they just don’t have it. The acting just isn’t there.

When Dr. Jonas first arrived in Salem he was bedding Kate Roberts, Billie Reed and then Chelsea. Nothing like keeping it in the family…LOL!

Shawn Christian is a very good actor. While I’m sad to see his character killed off and his presence gone from Days, I’m glad to have watched him in Salem for the past 8 years. I hope his new career path takes him to great heights where his great talent talent will be appreciated.
Wishing you, Shawn, all the success in the world!

Contrary to some continous claims Daniel and Shawn have his fans; myself included.
Daniel was a flawed character but in the town of Salem with rapist and murderers running free he was a pretty decent guy. The actor had chemistry with a lot of his co stars. He will be missed by me and many others. Of course he has his haters but so does every other character on Days.

I was becoming a fan of Daniel and Nicole as a couple but it is what it is. I wish SC the best.

Brandi
Guest

I miss Daniel. I liked him and Jennifer but when he started dating Nicole, I saw the chemistry. At least she is dating him so she sees him out of work. Wish them both the best.

I have always liked this actor. I loved him on ATWT years ago. I don’t understand the negativity that surrounds the character of “Daniel” I thought he “caught on” very much in recent years. He became the go-to guy for help and ran the hospital with Kayla. He was Victor’s godson! And friends with everyone. I will miss him very much. Where on earth is Maxine by the way? She will be devastated over his death.

Gloria, I totally agree on all what you said. I have always liked Shawn Christian and wish him nothing but the best. I am so done with DOOL…people said it’s great, I disagree…To many characters are leaving, the show looks different and even feels different. If they want to improve DOOL, look back at the good old day for the way the show was done and recreate that.

I will say this, I am not in favor of a Patrick Drake recast on GH BUT this guy might fit the bill IF he can act?

CeeCee

Hi, Timmm.
I like Shawn and I think he would be a significant asset for GH, as a different doctor. He is too old to play Patrick Drake, I would think. Please don’t call me ageist. Lol. I speak the truth. Luv-ya.

Timmm

You young tart you! I see what your saying. He could even be Julian’s lost older son that goes head to head with Dante? But yes anyway, we need to restock GH doctors and nurses.

@Timmmm.
Oh, my gorgeous guy, you…..Shawn C is fifty years old….older than Julian. But, don’t fret. Age doesn’t matter to GH. Sam, Julian’s daughter is almost as old as her Dad. Imagine that! So what if his progeny (Daniel/Shawn) is older….LOL. It might work. Still luv-ya.

So is Nicole pregnant? Let it be so.

Anne, what an ingenious idea. It hadn’t even crossed my mind. Good one, Anne! I like the idea of a pregnant Nicole. She’s always, so desperately, wanted a baby!

gloria

I never dreamed she could be pregnant! That would be great & maybe she could end up with Dr. Finn-Daniel’s friend? We still don’t know much about him at all. A shame his friend dies so soon after he comes to town. There is no other man in that town for Nicole.

@gloria. Hi, Gloria. It could be that this new doctor was specifically brought in because Dr. Jonas/Shawn was leaving. Oh, not to worry, gloria (lol), I am sure TPTB will think of something to pin on this new hunky doctor; a shady past? Criminal family and terrifying upbringing? He is from Australia, right? Isn’t that country/continent where all the British criminals were sent way back when? Double LOL. Seriously speaking, though, if Nicole is, indeed, pregnant; and, I pray she is, maybe she should just lay back, mourn Daniel and clear her mind and soul and enjoy her pregnancy….look at… Read more »

I am really going to miss Daniel. He’s been such an important part of so many stories since I started watching Days. Thank you Shawn Christian for making Daniel such a strong and interesting presence on the show. I wish you much success in your further career.

What I liked about Daniel was his ability to stand up to Victor. I also liked how he and Nicole always stood by each other, even when they didn’t always want to. They believed in each other’s innocence when others misjudged them. They were perfect together.

Daniel and Jennifer romance got me addicted to days after I stopped watching for over 10 years…… I did not find them boring at all….for me I loved how they would put each other’s happiness over their own….that is true love the sacrifice they made for each other…..since they broke up Daniel had a pretty much zero storyline……the last I remember with him was the JJ/Eve affair and that involved Jen as well….. I am glad I saw him give Jen a hug and told her to be strong for Abby like she always had been….before leaving for the fashion… Read more »

I feel bad for the actor, it wasn’t so much him as it was the writing and the pairings he was in. Daniel and Jennifer were HORRIBLE, and they just didn’t know how to write for him. I could see him on General Hospital next, he could be the new Patrick there.

I think it sucks that we hadn’t seen Daniel in months. it just seems an ignominious ending for a character that Days invested alot in (ie, family connections). I just wish he’d had a better ending. it seems so sudden. poor Maggie (and Victor); so much loss and sadness lately.

Daniel was one of my favorite characters on the show. I’m devestated he’s gone. My favorite part of him on the show was watching his freindships develop, which we saw in real time. Specifically with Nicole (when they were just friends), Brady, Eric and his scenes with JJ were wonderful as were his scenes with Maggie and Parker. Romantically, I liked him with Chloe and always hoped one day they would find there way back. But I also would have been happy if he and Jen had married as he was great with Abbey and JJ.

Shawn Christian would make a great Dr. Steve Webber recast. GH has an opening for a doctor and Liz could use her brother. We could even have a Ned/Olivia/Steve triangle down the road.

I know he doing movies, and i feel he will reach new Heights in a movie career…Shawn deserves a great acting career, he has tons of talent, Blessed with his sexy looks!!!

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
