Several online sites are reporting what we have all been suspecting for quite some time. Writers Guild of America champion/ NBC.com blogger/(bee keeper?) Dena Higley has in fact written the most talented young adult actor in her cast,Blake Berris(Nick), into a corner at Days of Our Lives.
Message boards at Daytime Royalty and Soap Opera Network, are citing the upcoming issue of Soap Opera Digest in confirming Berris's exit from the NBC sudser. I guess now Gary Tomlin can continue on his sinister quest to fill out the cast of Days with vapid, "name", male hair models from defunct, dead last sudsers. Who needs acting chops? That strategy worked so well for Sunset Beach and Passions.
All things considered, Higley, Tomlin and Soap Opera Mafia Don Ken Corday have done the much-too-gifted for Days of Our Golfing Excursions, Berris a favor. Maybe he will thank them in his acceptance speech when he wins his first Academy Award?
