The time jump left viewers with plenty of questions, one of them being, “Who is Evan on DAYS OF OUR LIVES?” David’s manny is being played by actor Brock Kelly, who actually played a character named Josh who worked at the coffee shop and dated Abby on DAYS back in 2005-06. You might also recognize the actor from his appearances on primetime series like THE O.C., SUPERNATURAL, and RAVENSWOOD.
Evan was introduced in the Nov. 19 episode when the male nanny, who was hired by Rafe Hernandez to take care of Danny, gave Arianna a pep talk and offered Sonny Kiriakis some help with the little girl before asking him out to dinner. Sonny declined the invitation, but when he later ran into the manny in the park again, agreed to share his meal. The two got to know each other and Sonny admitted he was still struggling with the fact that his husband, Will Horton, took his mother away from him. They finished their food and made plans to get together again.
Evan attended Thanksgiving at the Kiriakis mansion and was in awe of the family’s estate. After some initial awkwardness, the two parted at the end of the evening and shared a close moment as they reflected on how well things went. The next day, Sonny returned Evan’s scarf to him at Rafe’s and they talked about Thanksgiving until Rafe came home with Danny. Evan walked Sonny out and impulsively kissed him. When Sonny backed off, Evan apologized and regretted his rash action. After Sonny left, Rafe asked if they were dating and Evan admitted they weren’t, though he was into him. Rafe warned his nanny that Sonny is a nice guy, but comes with a lot of baggage.
