Harris Michaels on DAYS OF OUR LIVES — Everything You Need To Know


The character of Harris Michaels was on DAYS OF OUR LIVES back in 1988 and didn’t resurface until 2022 on the second series of its spinoff, BEYOND SALEM. So newer viewers might have some questions about the guy, which is where we come in! Steve Burton originated the role in July 1988 and left in November of that year, to later find soap fame as Jason on ABC sudser GENERAL HOSPITAL. He reprised the role for BEYOND SALEM, and is now joining the cast of DAYS once again.

Harris Michaels went to school with Eve Donovan where he made a bet with his friends to see who could score with her first. After numerous dates, he began to develop genuine feelings for her but when Eve discovered the bet, she attempted to kill herself with sleeping pills. Horrified, Harris tried to apologize and make up for what he’d caused, but Eve never forgave him.

In 2022, Harris resurfaced and was dating Hope Brady, much to the disapproval of her daughter, Ciara Brady. But this relationship was just part of his job working for the nefarious Megan Hathaway, which also included kidnapping John Black and Steve Johnson. When Harris proposed to Hope, Megan wondered if he’d genuinely caught feelings for the target, so at the wedding, she had Thomas Banks assassinate her. However, after a visit to the other side, Hope returned and time rewound to play out a little differently with Harris being the one shot instead. He still tried to complete his mission to retrieve the prism for Megan, but when he hesitated to pull the trigger on Hope, he was arrested. When Hope later visited him, Harris claimed he did love her and thought perhaps Megan had brainwashed him like her other victims, but Hope left him to face justice.

As to what brings Harris back to Salem again and how his relationship with Hope continues to develop, you’ll just have to stay tuned!
