One of the finest actors we know and who has ever graced the daytime screens, A Martinez is reprising his role as Eduardo Hernandez, the father to Gabi and Rafe, this week on the NBC long-running series, Days of our Lives.

Martinez is back to help usher off the canvas, Galen Gering (Rafe) and Camila Banus (Gabi), who before recent news wrapped up their run with this week of episodes, but over the last week and half, as viewers have read in the press, both Gering and Banus will now be returning to the show at some point in the fall, after the series returns to production on September 1st.

A told Soap Opera Digest (in their latest issue on newsstands now) that he was thrilled to get the call to come back, but that when he didn’t originally know the storyline he would be in involved the exit of Banus and Gering.

Martinez shared: “I got the call from my agent, saying, ‘DAYS is interested in having you back to do this  little arc of a story’.  My first response was complete celebration.  And then when i found out what it was, I felt kind of lousy about it on a certain level. But this is the nature of the beast, especially at this point,”

The Daytime Emmy winner for his role as Cruz Castillo on Santa Barbara also added about playing Eduardo: “I think he’s a wonderful character, I love playing him, He is so rich and deep and so wounded.”

In an Instagram post on Sunday, heading into Eduardo’s re-emergence on DAYS on Monday’s episode which sets the stage for Gering and Banus’ exits, Martinez shared: “I’ve played more problematic fathers than Eddie Hernandez — but not by much. Tomorrow he returns to Salem to blow up the lives of two of his children, harder and colder about it than when last we saw him, on his way to prison. A couple of years ago, when we learned about his horrific, emotionally disfiguring childhood, we understood the way he got be the way he is, and for me, in the playing, it anchored my affection for him. But to witness him now, forever on the run from his demons and still endangering everyone he claims to care about, it’s hard to muster a lot of sympathy for the dude. And yet, I do… maybe because it’s my job. And I always savor the chance to hit the stage with these fearless, steadfast actors.”

Now the question becomes: after the exit of Gabi and Rafe, and when they eventually return, will Eduardo be back with them,making the Hernandez family a unit again?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below, and also let us know if you will be  glad to see A again this week on DAYS!

Shame he keeps being thrown around as if he isn’t capable of handling a story worth his talent. He has only gotten finer with age.

Any chance that Eddie will put his ex wife, NOT-Eve out of her misery… permanently??

Yeah, I know that means I’ll be stuck with her in Hell, but I’m willing to take one for the team, just to get her off the show once and for all.

Eve is such a devoted mother, isn’t she?—so devoted she betrayed her daughter by seducing and having sex ( that’s not making live) with Paige’s boyfriend.
Suddenly this mother mourns, misses and loves the daughter she stabbed in the back!! Right!!
