Thaao totally doesnt count. When he was brought back he was written as and intended to be Tony.

I decided to use the re-written history. Tony was found on the island in 2007, having been there for over 20 years. When that storyline aired, I re-adjusted my past episode rankings and changed his appearances to Andre for the 1990s and 2000s. Because of that, he ended up being the character who went the longest on-screen without an appearance.

When and why did Calliope come back in February 2006? I can't remember that at all.

To plan Shawn and Mimi's wedding. I remember a funny scene when Marlena had amnesia during the Alex North debacle where she explained that Marlena was the best man at her wedding. LOL

Thanks for the info! Who would change places if the list was ranked by actor instead of character? Thaao Penghlis, Judi Evans, Wayne Northrup, and anyone else?

Thanks, Amello!

Now I remember why I missed Calliope's return. There was a point where I just couldn't watch Days when the Alex North debacle was going on.

Where does Deidre Hall rank on this because I know that she missed episodes from 1987-1991?

Likely now since she was only absent for 4 years.

Dee missed 1,098 episodes after her last appearance on 4/24/87 and return on 8/2/91. She doesn't qualify for the list though, since she wasn't off the show for 5 years.
