-Eric's Mysterious Past
When Eric returned to Salem in 1997, it was implied that some secret events had kept him out of Salem for the past few years. In February 1998, an actress named Christine Wilson was cast in the role of Taylor Raines, and her shoes were seen following Eric through Salem Place. At the last minute, the character was written out and the mysterious stalker turned out to be Jed Fox, a character who had framed Eric for sexual assault. The name "Taylor" was later reused several months later for Nicole's sister.
The mysterious shoes were supposed to be Nicole's sister, Taylor. But it was re-written to be Jed Fox and they held the Taylor character back for another year. It wasn't a re-use of the character's name. Taylor was supposed to follow her sister Nicole to Salem right away, it just took much longer than originally planned!!
