‘Days of Our Lives’ News: Tyler Christopher Out Permanently as Stefan DiMera on DOOL

Days of Our Lives news reports Tyler Christopher (Stefan DiMera) won’t be returning to DOOL. He was supposed to just be taking a bit of time off, but returning later. Now a source says that Tyler Christopher is totally off of Days of Our Lives and won’t be playing  Stefan DiMera. He has only been playing the role about a year after leaving the role of Nikolas Cassadine on General Hospital.

Days of Our Lives changes with Tyler Christopher’s exit as Stefan DiMera

According to a report from Daytime Indulgence temporary leave, Tyler Christopher’s is now permanent. When he took time off, it was revealed that he needed a break for personal reasons. At that time, Brandon Barash took over the role. These two worked together on General Hospital. Brandon isn’t on GH anymore either but does show back up from time to time.

Brandon was simply supposed to take over because Tyler Christopher wanted a break. Now, it appears that Brandon could end up landing the role or someone else could end up playing Stefan. There is no news on how this is all going to finally end up. Brandon might not even want to take over the role on a full-time basis because of other obligations in his life. One thing Brandon has going on is being a dad to Harper Rose Barash, his daughter with Kirsten Storms, who plays Maxie Jones on the popular soap opera.

What does this mean for Nikolas Cassadine?

The rumors about why Tyler Christopher left Days of Our Lives and General Hospital are both swirling. They never found Nicolas’ body. It would be really easy for them to bring him back again. There has been a lot of hope from fans that he would return at some point. There has been talk about a recast because Tyler was busy on Days of Our Lives. They might not even want Tyler Christopher back for the role if they bring back Nikolas Cassadine.

Lately, there have been a lot of rumors about who could play the role. Soap fans assume that it would be someone who has been on a soap opera before but isn’t at the moment. Actors seem to switch from one show to another pretty easily. You know that it won’t be hard to find someone that wants to take on this role. NBC isn’t saying a word yet about what is going on.
