More than two years after Tyler Christopher exited DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Stefan DiMera, the Daytime Emmy winner returned to work this week! Now, the question on the minds of Christopher’s fans is: But where?
On Jan. 24, the handsome actor shared on Instagram a photo of him dressed in a suit as a makeup artist powdered his face. Christopher, who also played GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Nikolas, simply captioned the photo, “New look in studio.”
The actor took the post down the following day, but while it was up, those four words set off a firestorm amongst his followers, who immediately wanted to know if Christopher had returned to work on one of the soap’s he’d previously called home. The set behind Christopher seemed to be a stone wall, leading one of his loyal followers to wonder if he was back at GH for a third time, filming scenes in the Cassadine caverns. Since Marcus Coloma is currently playing the role of Nikolas, it’s unlikely that Christopher has stepped back into the part of Laura’s son. There’s also the possibility that the actor was back on DAYS, where he originated the role of Stefano’s son before the role was recast with Brandon Barash, Stefan was killed off, and Barash returned as twin Jake.
Granted, in the world of soap operas, anything is possible — so who knows if Christopher might return to playing one of his previous alter egos (or even a whole new character!) someday. Unfortunately for soap fans, it doesn’t seem like that time is now. In an Instagram story, Christopher shared a photo of him with a group of colleagues, adding the text that “Sometimes Mondays rock.” That photo was actually Christopher sharing a post made by actor and writer Ashford J. Thomas, who revealed in his caption that the group was hard at work on a feature film coming soon. “Great cast, great crew, great shoot,” wrote Thomas.
Christopher’s exciting new movie role comes just a week after he shared that he moved to San Diego. Be sure to keep checking back with SoapsInDepth.com for new updates about the actor’s upcoming project!
