In the recent past, Days of Our Lives has gone through many casting shifts. Some really loved characters have fallen of the screen and some have gone some crazy swaps. For the unversed, Camilla Banus has recently exited the soap as Gabi, Peter Porte too, has bowed out as Dimitri. However, the biggest shake up has been actress Emily O’Brien jumping from Gwen’s role on to Theresa Donovan’s. Upon Jen Lilley’s exit.
The latest word around the block is that amid all the exits, there is a possibility of a past character returning. The rumor mills started buzzing when the Days of Our Lives official Instagram page shared a cast photo on it’s story. Interestingly, the picture included DOOL alum – Mike Manning. Fans will remember him for portraying Charley Dale. The picture in question was snapped at The Hollywood Museum’s TV history exhibit. Current cast members -Tamara Braun, Paul Telfer , Dan Feuerriegel, and Stacy Haiduk were also in the picture among others.
We wonder if this is a hint at Mike returning to the Days of Our Lives fold. Of course, it is possible that he just happened to be present at the exhibit and posed for a pic with his former castmates. But we still can’t shake off the feeling that there could be more to this. Sure, Charley is dead on the soap, but when has that ever stopped anyone from returning to life on Salem? In fact, Charley did come back to life temporarily once, thanks to the devil!
Besides, even if the makers would like to keep Charley dead, there are many other ways to bring Mike back. Nick Fallon is dead too. But his portrayer Blake Berris is back to Days of Our Lives as Everett Lynch. So, there is certainly a possibility that the makers might bring Mike Manning back as an all new character! Honestly, if that happens we would love it! Mike is a great actor and a fresh new character on the soap could be fun! What do you say? Tell us in the comments.
