Drake was a recast of Robert Poynton who originally played the character from 85' to 86'. And Bo was recast after Peter played the character for many years (1983–87, 1990–92). Robert Kelker-Kelly won the role from 1992-95.

I strongly disagree with the people saying you can recast everybody.
Would you be ok with a Marlena or Bo recast? No way!
Bo, Roman, Jack, Jennifer, Kate, Billie, Caroline, John, Laura & Mike Horton and Austin have all been recast at some point in the shows' history. While it's highly unlikely that Days would try to recast their vets now
but that doesn't mean that they've never been recast before.
Right. I actually meant to say you can't replace actors who have been playing a beloved character for decades, like Deidre Hall or Peter Reckell. The audience would never accept it.
The character of John has never been replaced...nor should it ever.
But like I said in my previous post, Days wouldn't recast the vets now. They've been in their roles for several decades. Any attempt to recast them would just end in horror.
