Salem is going to have to do without one of its biggest troublemakers! After 17 years of playing Lucas Roberts Horton, Bryan Dattilo has been let go from Days of Our Lives — and Star has an exclusive interview with the star.
Just days before Christmas, Bryan — who shared much of his screen time with Alison Sweeney — received news that the NBC soap opera wouldn't be renewing his contract. Although the single dad is sorry his days are numbered, he's looking forward to new opportunities.
“My contract runs out in February and I’ve been told by the producers that it’s not being renewed,” Bryan tells Star exclusively. “I really enjoyed my years on Days and I am grateful for having had the opportunity to travel the world and meet so many great fans in person.
“For the past couple years I’ve had to turn down jobs that would move me to prime-time because I was under contract to Days. But now that I am not tied to the show, I can explore some new and exciting opportunities.”
His castmate Alison, who also moonlights as host of Biggest Loser, immediately expressed her disappointment, tweeting: "I'm seriously devastated."
Bryan has already filmed his final scenes and his last episode will air on February. He'll be spending the holidays in the Chicago area with his son Gabe, 10, but plans to hit the ground running when he returns to Los Angeles.
Thanks to Brooke at DC!
