Charles Shaughnessy Returns to Days of Our Lives
by Michael Logan March 17, 2010 12:59 PM EST

Shane comes back! Charles Shaughnessy is returning to Days of Our Lives for a multi-episode arc in the role that made him an ’80s sensation—suave ISA agent Shane Donovan. The British actor is best remembered by prime-timers as Fran Drescher’s boss and eventual hubby on The Nanny, and he later played Drescher’s jerky ex on her follow-up sitcom Living With Fran. Most recently, he had a terrific guest stint on Mad Men as sneaky Saint John Powell, director of the U.K. ad agency that bought out Sterling Cooper.

An NBC rep says Shaughnessy—who briefly returned to Days in 2002—will appear on the soap for 10 or so episodes, though that might expand. He starts taping the week of March 22 and begins airing in a couple of months. Look for plot details and an interview with Shaughnessy in an upcoming issue of TV Guide Magazine.
