And....in reserching my poor memory...Benji (also nicknamed "BenjiMonkey" by Patch)was played by Darrell Thomas Utley, born in Ca. on Oct. 3, 1981. Being 25 now, yes, it would be nice if the original actor repised is role. Benji was on DAYS from '88-'89,'90. Patch & Kayla found him on their honeymoon. Benji's mother's name is Ellen and he went off to be raised by his grandfather, Orion.
The only photo I could find of Darrell Utley, was on imdb.com showing a small picture of him with Barry Bostwick and Lindsey Wagner from a tv movie he did with them, Danielle Steel's Once in a Lifetime, I recall the movie, he was Lindsey's son, yes, he played an audio impaired little boy.
Maybe Chrissi has access to a photo of the actor since so many don't recall that time on DAYS.
