Kevin Spirtas’ Days of Our Lives Exit as Craig Leaves Leo Hell-Bent on Revenge
Fans of Kevin Spirtas are going to have to say goodbye once again as the actor has wrapped up his latest run at Days of Our Lives as Craig. It was very apparent how crushed Craig was after Chad and Sonny revealed that Leo (Greg Rikaart) was already married — at their own wedding no less — and in the new issue of Soap Opera Digest, it’s revealed that the deception was simply too much for Craig to bear.
With Leo not wanting to give up on his love (or golden ticket), he tries to talk to Craig and viewers are going to see another side to the character, one we see very rarely, which Rikaart previewed, “He and Craig have this heart-to-heart… in this moment we do see him a bit vulnerable again, and the honest side of Leo that he keeps hidden most of the time.”
This is a big step for Leo, being honest, and though he and Craig had a connection, and the latter believes that his feelings for him are real, Craig just can’t get past the fact that Leo lied to him and therefore can’t move on in a relationship with a man he can’t trust. In the end, Craig leaves Leo and Salem behind.
We’ve seen Leo knee-deep in mischief before but losing Craig takes him to a much deeper place and he vows to seek revenge on everyone involved in the demise of their relationship. “He might be more angry and more committed to getting revenge than he’s ever been,” Rikaart teased.
