The rumors about Drake Hogestyn (John, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) badly hurting himself in a fall back in May have finally been confirmed by the soap’s executive producer, Ken Corday.
Last month, stories were flying around the Internet claiming that Hogestyn had suffered a terrible fall from a tree on his property, and had been written out of DAYS in order to recover. At the time, the show wasn’t commenting on the rumors, but in a recent interview with Glamour.com to promote DAYS’ 13,000th episode, Corday was asked about Hogestyn’s condition.
“We wish Drake the best,” the producer replied, “and hope to see him back on set soon.”
Best wishes to Hogestyn for a speedy recovery, and we hope to see John back in Salem very soon. We’ll keep you updated on his condition and news of his return to DAYS as more information is announced.
