    It's lights out for Day's Steve Blackwood (Bart)

    Monday, July 23 2007


    As seen with Thaao Penghlis (Andre/Tony)
    Days of Our Lives very own Steve Blackwood was involved in a four-car accident on Vine Street in Hollywood, California recently and thankfully, he walked away without serious injury. His character, sweet blundering henchman "Bart Beiderbecke", didn't fare so well.

    The scene has been shot and unless Bart has 9 lives, he'll be heading out of Salem in a dramatic fashion, Friday August 3 2007! Spoiler alert: He'll be killed off in a sword fight of all things!

    Steve has been playing bumbling 'Bart' for 10 years. He says that he and his wife were both teary eyed to read his last script, and when it came time to wrap up his last episode, "There wasn’t a dry eye on the set,” Blackwood says and then adds, “We as actors have an attachment to the characters ... When you’re killed, part of us dies, too.”


    Detained by 'Bo' (Peter Reckell) in one scene.
    For weeks now I've been sitting on this unfortunate news, hoping to be proven wrong. Hopefully, in the true spirit of the show, Bart Beiderbecke will either have nine lives, or come back as a ghost, haunting the DiMera mansion!

    Soaps.com wishes Steve Blackwood all the best, and wishes him much luck in the future. For more about Steve, check out his website at Steve Blackwood
