Days of our Lives is casting for smaller roles on the NBC soap for the next six months, since the show tapes that far in advance. Some roles are for one appearance while others are recurring. Check out Days’ summer dayplayer roles and check out what’s to come.
A friend of Paul’s

James Calvert will be appearing on Days Friday November 9 in a scene with Hope and Rafe. Calvert plays a store owner named Mr. Snyder.

Bad news from the Fire Chief
Byron McIntyre will be seen on Days as the Fire Chief Tuesday October 23. He will have terrible news for Sami (Ali Sweeney), Eric (Greg Vaughan) and Brady (Eric Martsolf).
Scene with Sami
Sami (Ali Sweeney) teams up with her twin brother Eric (Greg Vaughn) in her search for her believed-to-be-dead husband, EJ DiMera and questions a hotel manager, played by David Ury in the October 18 episode of Days.
Victor Turpin will be seen on Days of our Lives as Luca in two episodes – February 4 and 5.
Hattie’s dance double
In a recent Days promo, Hattie does a little dance on Days of our Lives. In that scene, there’s a body double – none other than Glee alum, Heather Morris (Brittany Pierce).
Jay Mendoza booked a role on Days of our Lives. There is no word on who he will be portraying or when his first airdate will be.
Body double wanted
Interestingly enough, Days has been looking for a male body double for a one day principal role during the week of September 10. The double must be 45 – 65 years of age and of Greek, Italian or Hispanic descent. They must be 5″ 10″ with a medium to dark skin tone. This role will have a lot of dialogue. This double sounds like Andre DiMera (Thaao Penghlis).
Actress returns in new role
Bicentennial Man’s Angela Landis will be seen on Days of our Lives approximately Friday September 28 barring any unforeseen pre-empts. The name of Landis’ role is Elise, though this isn’t the actress’ first time in Salem. Landis portrayed a court reporter on November 14, 2016.
New officer in town
Andy Martinez Jr. booked another role on Days of our Lives as a cop. Martinez’s scenes will be seen on Tuesday September 25. The actor was on Days previously as a cop from 2014 – 2016. Martinez also played the role of Officer Cooper, a guard, a cop and an F.B.I technician in 2005, and again August 15, 2017 on General Hospital and was briefly seen on Young and Restless as a cop on July 17, 2011.
Taping Christmas episodes
Soaps.com has learned that child actress Stella Hopton just booked a role on Days of our Lives. (Wonder who that is in the bed on the monitor?) Since the show is taping Christmas episodes, she could be one of the kids at the hospital who Doug or Julie reads the Christmas story to or she might have a bigger role. Either way, she’ll be seen around mid-December. Behind Hopton is Kate Mansi, (Abigail Deveraux DiMera) who is getting made up for what will be her second return. The actress is back this summer and again in winter.
Aussie actor in new role
Australian actor, Andrew Steel, has booked a role on Days of our Lives. Some will remember him from Home and Away. On Instagram, the actor said, “So a couple of years down the track and I finally booked a gig on Days Of Our Lives!!! Stay tuned for December people…”
