The new Theo.

Kyler Pettis will be coming to Salem this fall as the recast for Theo Carver. A covert casting call went out for the role of ‘Elijah’ earlier this year. The character was described as “A 16-year-old, gorgeous, African American male…who also happens to be a high functioning autistic.” We can now confirm that the call was actually for the part of Theo. The character, Abe (James Reynolds) and Lexi’s (Renee Jones) son as well as the grandson of Stefano (Joe Mascolo), has been noticeably SORASd. We’ll see the recast starting November 3.
