Victor Plays Brady Like a Fiddle on Days of Our Lives

Victor (John Aniston) thought his grandson had finally come to his senses, when Brady (Eric Martsolf) dropped by the Kiriakis mansion. He was wrong.

Victor said Kristen (Eileen Davidson) was the worst addiction Brady had ever face. He warned his late daughter's son, saying Kristen was going to suck his soul dry.
Brady, being one of the dumbest characters in soaps, didn't listen to a word his grandfather said. 

Suddenly, Victor changed his tune and apologized. He made up with Brady, saying he'd support him.

After Brady left, Henderson said he was happy to hear Victor was supporting Brady. Victor revealed he had no intention of supporting Brady; he was just biding his time. READ MORE

Days of Our Lives' John Aniston's Early Acting Advice to Daughter Jennifer: “Don’t Do It. Become a Doctor. Become a Lawyer.”

Leave it to a worried daddy to try to protect his little girl. In a new chat up with The Hollywood Reporter, TV legend-turned-bona fide movie starlet Jennifer Aniston shared what her father, Days of Our Lives star John Aniston (Victor), said to her when he found out she wanted to follow him into acting:

THR: Your father, John Aniston, has been a longtime castmember on NBC’s Days of Our Lives. Has he, or anyone else in the industry, given you career advice that has really stuck with you?

Aniston: My dad’s advice has always been: “Don’t do it. Become a doctor. Become a lawyer.” He didn’t want me to be heartbroken because he knew it was a tough business. It compelled me to go for it even harder. Do what keeps you happy, and don’t ever let people box you in. There was a period when I was on Friends where The Good Girl came to me, or [2006’s] Friends With Money came to me. I thought, I’ve got to go for it now and try to not just be Rachel Green so I can get out of the Fruity Pebbles section at the grocery and explore the organic food. It’s a terrible analogy, but I had to get out there and do something different so they could see that I’m an actor, so I didn’t forget that I could do other things. I was lucky that happened.
