Rex is coming back to DAYS OF OUR LIVES this week and on March 6, actor Kyle Lowder thanked fans for their support as he reprises the role once again. “I was just gonna do like, a post, on Instagram but I decided a video is so much better,” he explained in a selfie video shot in his home. “Because I just want to thank you all like this for blowing up my phone today. For all of your kind, loving, supportive messages with regards to Rex returning to DAYS… next week!
“So thank you all so much,” Lowder continued. “for like I said, the love, the support, the… kindness that you guys have shown me today. And all the time for that matter. I don’t get to do what I love to do for a living without all of you. So tune in to DAYS starting next week, Rex will be back. I think you’re gonna like it.” The actor closed out the video by panning over to the spectacular sunset outside his window before signing off. Check it out:
Lowder originally starred on DAYS as Brady Black from 2000-05, and then played a recast of Rick Forrester on CBS sudser THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL from 2007-11. When he returned to DAYS in 2018, the role of Brady had been taken over by Eric Martsolf in 2008, so he was cast as the new Rex Brady, previously played by Eric Winter from 2002-05. Yes, it’s all very confusing!
Rex was reintroduced as being engaged to Sarah Horton, but that relationship soon fell apart when she found out he’d cheated on her with Mimi and had a child! He left town with his baby and babymama, but soon returned to beg Sarah for another chance. They actually tied the knot, but when she dumped him for Eric, Rex left for Chicago to start over. Lowder reprised the role in April 2020 when Sarah ran into Eric in Paris while on the run with Kristen’s baby.
What will Rex be up to this time? With Sarah getting ready to marry Xander, he might be something of a spoiler for that, since it seems unlikely he’d be on the guest list for the ceremony! So keep watching DAYS to see what Rex gets up to this time!
