The new issue ofSoap Opera Digest has more deets on the sorry state of affairs concerning Peter Reckell (Bo Brady) and Days of Our Lives. According to the article, Reckell allegedly "balked" at taking another pay cut. GOOD FOR RECKELL!
Hell, he and Kristian Alfonso (Hope) already took huge pay cuts to stay with this show a few years back. Why should he have to do so again? Why does DAYS feel it's necessary to pay for two head writers and two executive producers, yet they seem to believe the veteran actors who made this show so popular are expendable?
Get rid of Shawn Christian (Daniel), Ian Buchanan (Ian) Galen Gering (Rafe) and a few others and keep the vets of this soap opera front and center where they belong! For more on Reckell's DAYS drama, pick up the May 14 issue of Soap Opera Digest.
