Days of Our Lives went to Oz to find their next heartthrob. The NBC serial is bringing on an Australian character named Finn for their upcoming 50th anniversary, and decided to go Down Under to find him. According to Sydney's The Daily Telegraph, over 200 blokes have applied for a chance to play the doctor.
Among the candidates is John-Paul Jory, an ex-garbage man who grew up watching the sinful goings on in Salem U.S.A. with his seven siblings. According to Jory, joining DAYS would be the fulfillment of a life-long dream.
From the article:
“It’s the dream,” he said. “I remember watching the show with my brothers and sisters in the afternoon so it would be incredible to have the chance to become part of something I grew up with,” he said.
