Shawn Christian, who played Dr. Daniel Jonas at the Days of Our Lives (DOOL) is about to return to the sudser on April 1.
Christian hasn’t been to DOOL since 2017, when he appeared as a ghost and in some flashbacks. His character died in a car accident in 2016.
Daniel came to Salem in March 2008 at the behest of his godfather Viktor Kiriakis (John Aniston). Bo Brady (Peter Reckell) had a life-threatening pancreas, and Daniel eventually saved his life through a living donor transplant. The donor was Bo’s daughter Chelsea Brady (Rachel Melvin), with whom Daniel later romanticly joined.
During the eight years the characters at DOOL were also paired with Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow), Chloe Lane (Nadia Bjorlin), Jennifer Horton (Melissa Reeves) and Nicole Walker (Arienne Zucker). After the New Year’s fashion show he was drunk by Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) and crashed inside with Daniel and Brady Black (Eric Martsolf). Daniel, Eric and Brady were all seriously injured, and Daniel’s heart was dedicated to Brady.
Christian’s first act was at One Life To Live. He also played Mike Kasnoff on As The World Turns and appeared on many primetime series, including Ellen, CSI: Miami and Las Vegas.
Spectators will see Daniel in flashbacks or as a creepy look again, or this time, a special Dr. Rolf (William Utay)? Follow DOOL to find out!
