Fan Favorite Thaao Penghlis Returns to Days of Our Lives as Tony DiMera: ‘It’s Always Magic Time, Let’s Dance’

Veteran actor Thaao Penghlis will make another return to Days of Our Lives as Tony DiMera beginning on Friday, December 18. In the Days of Our Lives winter promo, the character is shown making a toast with Anna upon their arrival back in Salem. Not too long ago we heard Tony mentioned when Chad told Steve that he and Tony destroyed the Stefano chip. Could it be the chip wasn’t destroyed at all and Tony still has it, or will this simply be a visit home for the holidays? Time will tell!

Penghlis’ character was last seen on Tuesday, April 21 when Tony and Anna left Salem. On Thursday, October 22, the actor posted a photo on his Instagram with Billy Flynn captioned, “The DiMera brothers. Stirring. Long May they live.”

He followed up with a post of him and Leann Hunley and teased, “Anna and Tony will they live happily ever after? Of course it’s always magic time. Let’s dance.”

Penghlis’ most recent nod to his Days of Our Lives family was in a photo with fellow, longtime castmates Deidre Hall and Lauren Koslow, to which he remarked, “Two of our best. Happy Days are here again.” We can’t wait to see what happens in Salem this holiday season!

Penghlis has played the role of Tony, as well as Andre DiMera, since 1981 and his recent return is likely brief. In the meantime, join us for a walk down memory lane by viewing our gallery of DiMera Family photos — from the first generation through the last.
