For weeks there have been rumors that Peter Reckell would be leaving the role he has played for almost 3 decades on Days of our Lives and today Bo Brady confirmed the news. He took to Twitter and said, “Days of Our Lives has been my home, My life, for almost 30 years. Bo Is a character that developed From my soul, And has touched many lives, But none more than my own. I took my place in the hierarchy of the show,in the storyline, moving others aside, in the eighty’s. Now others have moved into the place I once held. I have been very fortunate to have had such a long, meaningful,run. But now, with a torn heart, I have to say goodbye to the people, family, the character, that I love.You have to know this has not been easy. I do not want to give up Bo, and with luck, in the future, will be able to return to the character that I fought so hard to preserve. Thank you for being the most supportive, forgiving,loyal viewers there are. You have given me strength in difficult times. You are the reason DOOL is still standing and will continue for years to come. Thank you for all you have given me and the character I love!” Thank you to Reckell for creating a charcter we could all love.
I think DOOL made a huge mistake letting him go and keeping Kristan Alfonso. Does any like Hope? I haven’t met anyone, including myself, who does. I will miss Bo Brady. Oh and to the people in charge, don’t you dare replace him with that guy who couldn’t act again. Whatever his name was, failed once for obvious reasons, don’t repeat your mistake.
