Days of Our Lives' Bryan Dattilo (Lucas) took Soap Opera Digest on a wild ride recently, describing his character's many relationship ups and downs. While admitting that Lucas's "love life has been a failure," he also delved deep into the women Lucas has loved and lost over the years.
When reflecting on Lucas’s on-off, love-hate bond with his children’s mother, Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney), Dattilo offered some fascinating intriguing insights. He reflected:
In the beginning, Lucas, who was a little bit older, started schooling Sami on her crush on Austin [Patrick Muldoon, then Austin Peck]. As Sami got older and became a woman, Lucas saw her in a different light. When they got together, it was a perfect fit for both of them.
Lucas also lusted after Sami’s picture-perfect half-sister, Carrie Brady (Christie Clark), for years. What drew him to Carrie? Dattilo mused:
He was infatuated with her. In Lucas’s mind, Carrie was like a Barbie doll. He thought, ‘Oh, that’s what the hot girl looks like.’ For Lucas, coming from military school, she was the prize of the pound.
