Soap opera veteran James Reynolds has seen it all during his tenure as cop-turned-politician Abe Carver on Days of Our Lives. In a new in depth interview with Daytime Royalty, the actor recalls pretty much everything from his audition back in the early 80's to the present day. 

Here's an excerpt where Reynolds talks about Abe's entry point into fictional Salem U.S.A. via the game-changing Salem Strangler storyline. 

"Your first story was The Salem Strangler.


Yes. That turned out to be a very significant story in Days history and even in daytime television history. I think that story along with General Hospital’s Luke and Laura kind of changed television in a lot of ways. It certainly changed daytime TV. That story introduced a lot of Days characters, not only mine. Abe and Roman were kind of created as the dynamic duo. Abe showed up about 4 or 5 weeks ahead of Roman, and then Roman came on which of course lead to the Brady family. Then a little bit later the DiMeras showed up. The DiMeras weren’t part of that story, though. "
