  • Lamon Archey confirmed to be coming to Days in new role as Eli image
    dool originally posted December 12, 2016, Susan Seaforth-Hayes spoke with Lamon Archey on a Vimeo video on set (which has now been removed) about his move to "Days of our Lives" in a new role as Julie's grandson, Eli Grant. His father would be David Banning, and it's likely Eli was the mystery man texting Valerie in last week's episode. Archey will first be seen February 23.

    This isn't Archey's first foray into daytime television. In fact, he played bit parts on "Days" from 2011 - 2013 as Centerville cop, and New Dad, and from 2012 - 2014 he portrayed bad boy Mason Wilder on "Young and the Restless."

    In a recent interview with TV Insider, Susan Seaforth Hayes, who plays Julie Williams, was asked what Julie thinks of Valerie’s deceit, hiding Eli from his family? "[Laughs] Nothing good. There’ll be lots of conflict, a lot of mistrust. We’re shooting months ahead of what you’re seeing on air and it’s still playing out. The fact that Valerie kept this secret is not going to just go away. But, unlike Julie, I can understand why her having a child might not have come up. There was a stepfather involved. And people deal with birth [issues] in very different ways. My own mother [the late Elizabeth Harrower, an actress and former 'Days' writer] was adopted and she was not told about it until she was 12, but she loved her stepfather so much she didn’t want anything to do with her birth family. So I’m very familiar with that whole 'Let’s not talk about it' approach. 'Those people weren’t there so they don’t count!' But sometimes those people want to count. And the Horton family really wants to embrace this new young man. There’s a lot of meaty material there and I’m doing some risky stuff. The good thing is that Julie is entranced by Eli. He’s an FBI agent and quite the hero—though he seems to be doing more romancing in Salem than detective work. And whaddaya know? He really likes Julie too."
