He has really risen to the occasion during the aftermath of Grandpa Shawn (Frank Parker)’s traumatic death and Bo (Peter Reckell)’s medical crisis. Beemer’s Shawn has been a steady rock for his mom Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Grandma Caroline (Peggy McKay) and has even made me able to stomach his bratty, self-centered half sister Chelsea (Rachel Melvin). Here’s hoping another soap snatches him up pronto! Personally I think he would make a GREAT Thomas Forrester on Bold and the Beautiful. Just "putting it out there in the universe" as Lisa Rinna used to say on Soap Talk! Here’s Beemer’s goodbye blog in its entireity: So… a lot of people have been asking me how it went down on our last day.. so here it is. Our last day was not a fun one. We had an afternoon call time so I had a lot of time to think before I went in. I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I got to work and I have to say that I found myself really appreciating more than ever the time I got to spend with everyone, walking the halls, sitting on set, sitting quietly in my dressing room, etc. It was very strange how aware of everything I was that day… knowing that this was my last day I will be doing this. I said my good byes to those that had to leave early and packed up everything in my dressing room before we started to tape our last scenes. We had about five scenes to shoot at the end of the day… they went by really quickly and before I knew it we were on our last scene. It was hard…all the time that it took to shoot it seemed so great because it allowed us more time to stay on set and do what we love so much. Then it was done. Everyone gathered around as there was great applause and I stood there wishing I could run away from this moment and then come back to find that it never happened… but I figured that it probably wouldn’t go down that way. A cake and three presents were wheeled out on stage. Then they played a pre-recorded speech that Martha had done to thank everyone that she wanted to thank. She thanked everyone…it was very sweet. Then it was my turn..I thought it would be a piece of cake but I have to tell you that it was not easy. I said what I had to say or shall I say what I COULD say. When emotions start to overcome you, it’s almost impossible to speak. Ed Scott gave a very nice farewell speech to us.. that man has got to be the coolest man ever!! Then we said our goodbyes, took our pictures and that was the End of our run on Days of our Lives. (Sounds soooo dramatic huh?!! Lol) I am so thankful for every memory that I have and all the amazing people I met because of that show. The last year and eight months have been the best of my life. I will cherish everything that I have experienced. And I thank you all that have been so supportive during my run on the show and through this crazy last 8 weeks. I will never forget what you have done. Sincerely, Brandon 7 Responses syrus March 13, 2008 I think Madison and Beemer would make a great Gwen and Will on ATWT. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens March 13, 2008 That’s an interesting thought! Rumor has it Martha could be going to GH. I wouldn’t mind seeing her as a recast of Allison Stewart on ATWT. Log in to Reply terrifictam March 13, 2008 Aww he’s so sweet..it took sometime for me to get used to him as Shawn but I’m going to miss him. I think we’ll start to feel the void of Shawn being gone when Bo is fully recovered and there’s only Bope and Ciara. It will be weird not having him chatting with the folks. I found Shelle to be extremely boring (s/l’s not the actors’ faults) but I don’t like that 2 main characters are being written off. I hope they come back in 6mths or so.

They will be missed! (maybe if people ask enough they will be brought back!). Log in to Reply Kelly March 13, 2008 Interesting… If Martha goes to GH that would be two ex-Belle’s on one show… Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens March 13, 2008 The actors caught the brunt of the horrible Tinda Lau storyline and the botched triangle with Philip. I predict the characters will be back, but probably not with Beemer and Madison in the roles. Jason Cook is free, so I suspect they will go after him if they choose to bring Shawn back.
