It’s a sad day for fans of Days of Our Lives’ Bryan Dattilo (Lucas Horton), as Soap Opera Digest is reporting that the actor will soon be exiting the show.

Having created the role back in 1993, the actor has taped his last scenes leading up to his February 2010 contract expiration. Apparently, Days of Our Lives notified Bryan, before the show went on holiday leave, that they would not be picking up his next cycle. We will bring you his final air date as soon as it’s released.

Soaps.com wants to wish the actor our very best with his future, and we hope to see him again in Daytime soon. Please share your thoughts about this latest casting news with us below. As always, please stay tuned to our Days Comings and Goings for all the latest casting news.

Update January 15:

Bryan’s last airdate is February 16. Bryan himself has stated that there will be no exit scene. He will be on the show one day and simply gone the next. There will be no explanation.
