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’s Days’ fall dayplayer roles and watch for what’s to come.

The handsome doctor returns

Andre Khabbazi returns to Days of our Lives as Dr. Shah, the man Jennifer dated last year who also played Abigail and Steve’s doctor. Khabbazi returns December 27.

Bayview orderly

Ben Cain will be seen on Days of our Lives starting Thursday November 29 as an orderly who works in Bayview. He’ll be in scenes with Abigail DiMera (Kate Mansi).

Stefan’s goon is back

Stefan O. DiMera’s goon Frank is back on Days November 29, played once again by Gabriel “G-Rod” Rodriguez.

Stunt double

Tom McComas will be on Days November 27 as a stuntman. The scene he’s in is with Hope (Kristian Alfonso) where a man comes up behind her and she attacks him, realizing afterward that he’s Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini).

Brief appearance

Victor Turpin will be seen on Days of our Lives as Luca in two episodes – February 4 and 5.

Taping Christmas episodes 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 her return.
