I hope he finds work elsewhere. But I hope we are finally through with Tony/Andre. The character has been brought back way too many times and I am just sick of him

I'm not sick of Tony. But I am sick of Thaao being treated like shit. Sounds like Thaao can have a new job by this weekend.

Ironically, the only person who could write for Thaao well since I've started watching (in 1993) was JER in the first run. I know they hated each other or JER hated him or whatEVER, but JER's first run Tony was the best!

I really think this is a good decision for the show and for him too.

I couldn't disagree more. I can't even watch the 90s clips of Tony. He was written completely out of character. Thaao said at this last chat that Pat Falken Smith wrote the best for Tony, but she's passed.

thanks for the link!

I appreciate Thaao's determination to look at what comes as an opportunity rather than moaning and looking backward.

I really hate that the DiMeras are diminished by the loss of Tony. I did get the subtle jab at TIIC. LOL Tools Thaao, what tools? But I think that is the point of the comment.

Good luck to him!

I agree. Reilly kept him frontburner for many years.

I'm glad he and Leann are doing well. Also glad to know he has some stuff in the works. I wish him the best.

I've really changed my tune in regards to Thaoo in recent years. I like how he maintains communication with his fans and is so open with them and I also like his attitude when it comes to things. I will miss him and hope some day we see him on Days again. At the very least, I would like to see him on another soap or show that can appreciate and utilize his talent.

I don't think two years constitutes MANY.

2 years of being the interloper to the awful John/Kristen crap. Ugh. Then committing suicide. Yeah, that's great stuff. :puke:

I agree.

JER didn't get Tony at all. That wasn't Tony to me. Yes, Thaoo got great material at times, particularly at the end, but he was nothing more then a complication to John and Kristen and they had to piss all over his character's history to make half the shit work. Anna wasn't mentioned, they screwed with history with Tony and Stefano, etc. It wasn't very good IMO and we all know how much he screwed Thaoo in his second run.

Yep. They made Tony a blood DiMera with no explanation really. The real Tony would have dumped Kristen on her ass. Tony hated lying women. He never would have tolerated that.

Thaao totally rocked the Aremid stuff though.

It only took JER a few months to kill off Tony again in 04. His death scene at the hospital was amazing. Then the island, castle, Stan, and island again stuff was total crap.

I believe it was from '93 to late '96. That's actually a good bit of time to be on the frontburner for any actor.

No, it was a 2 year contract from 93 to 95.

Up until the actual suicide portion of Aremid, where I think Thaao totally rocked as the evilly calculating Tony (I really can't see anyone else playing those scenes), I hated the story with him, Kristen, and John. It really didn't ring true to me for any of the characters.

I didn't get Tony being obsessed with Kristen at all. Why would he be so hard up for this woman? I remembered Tony's love for Anna and Renee (at that time, I didn't think he was Andre). It just seemed stupid that he was so in love with Kristen when she wasn't in love with him. It made no sense.

I hated John being so obsessed with her too. I never got why at all. It was all way too contrived for me. I rooted for John to have an affair with Marlena, but I honestly hate unfaithfulness in a spouse. Now here he was going after Tony's wife. I know they had the thin explanation that as Stefano's son he was 'evil' like Stefano, but it was so unsubstantiated in general. I just watched thinking this makes no sense the whole time.

But Aremid is one of my favorite stories.

I will say that I absolutely hated JER's writing for Tony. He was so plain & boring, two things Tony never was. JER just never got the character.

As for Thaao's departure, anyone else think he may have been speaking up about his good friend Dee Hall's departure? I have a hunch....

Could be. He was the only actor to really say it was a dumb move to fire the DH's.

Ok, Thaao was on DOOL from Nov 93 to Nov 95. And that's a fact. :tounge:
