LIKE SANDS THROUGH THE HOUR GLASS....SO GOES THE CHARACTERS OF OUR LIVES
By now most of you have heard the rumors swirling all over the web that Thaao Penghlis has been fired from Day's of our lives. Apparently, this was not just a rumor. Jamey Giddens over at Daytime Confidential stayed on top of this and pointed us to a source claiming this bleak news is true.
It is sad news for yet another Days actor that has made some major contributions to this show playing both Tony and Andre DiMera for years. The firing of Phenghlis comes in the wake of the recent firings of two other long term popular Days actors. When Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) and Drake Hogestyn (John Black) were let go we thought the carnage would end but in light of this latest firing, we must have been wrong.
There is clearly no respect for the veterans on this show.
Recently I had the pleasure to corresepond with members of the Days of our Lives cast who took the time to share the best part of their jobs as daytime performers. Here is what Thaao Penghlis had to say about his job on Days:
I'll never die of Alzheimer's. Stimulating the memory muscle for so many years is a sure remedy of not getting dementia. The only negative thing is if I gave my brain to science and they opened it up they would probably say, "What the hell was that man thinking!"
Hear what other Day's cast members had to say about the best reasons to work on a soap and do check out the full account of this breaking news from Giddens over at Daytime Confidential. As always, do share your thoughts here about yet another dark datyime report.
