The most extreme cases of RAS are ones such as Philip Kiriakis.
The character himself was born in 1995, the same year as Will. So too have characters such as Belle Black, Brady Black, Nicholas Alamain, etc.
It's gotten to the point where all he needs to do is refer to his house as "my mansion" and I giggle. John: I believe that's an old photo album belonging to my half-brother. The rest of the conversation is not worth transcribing, even with John's awesomely smug description of the many "notches on [his] bedpost" despite his supposed devotion to Marlena. But mostly I'm enjoying EJ in couple-y situations that don't involve yelling, as most of his with Samantha in recent months seem to. I still can't believe how much I like Nicole this time around, and Arianne Zuker and James Scott have awesome chemistry. Stephanie: Well, it's a good thing you're going to take Midol because it'll make that disappear. I was embarrassed for Rachel Melvin, Shelley Hennig, and Kristen Renton.
I continue to be thoroughly entertained by the new John Black. John: The time you and I had spine-shattering sex on a submarine. Bo: I don't know...globe-trotting bohemian commitment-phobic surfer! I also love the boomerang of Bo having to deal with the much-older-guy-dating-my-daughter thing that he previously inflicted on Doug.
Yet, he’s played by Jay Kenneth Johnson, who is 18 years older than Philip should technically be. Already we’re seeing this with some of the other children, such as Ciara Brady, Allie Horton and Johnny Di Mera.
So if a child ever goes off on a vacation with their parents and aren’t shown on-screen or if they go off to camp, then you can almost always expect them to come back at least a little bit older than they were before. Oftentimes, the new actor will just jump right in and take over, as when they replaced Dylan Patton to Chandler Massey (although I’m not so sure that was as much RAS as it was a general recast). One day she was played by Ava and Olivia White, then the next she was played by Alina Foley.
The Australian actor was hired in early March for the role of a charming businessman that, at the time, was going by another name.
In a big casting move, Days of our Lives has opted to recast the role of Taylor Raines. Tamara Braun is back at Days of our Lives this week -- but not as Ava, the role for which she won a Daytime Emmy in 2009.
It strikes randomly, but I’ll be surprised if I ever see a child in Salem who isn’t aged.
There were also a few cases of Regressive Aging Syndrome, where suddenly a character would become younger.
Kudos to Peggy Mc Cay on her hilarious reaction shot, though maybe she had actually broken character and just finds Hogestyn's new approach as hysterical as I do. Even if she has to fall into a relationship with Daniel (which she does NOT, writers! Though her inappropriate bitchiness/insensitivity does make her a decent match in at least one way with Daniel, who is just inappropriate all around. (Are we going to find out why Kate reacted the way she did to Daniel potentially doing surgery on her? Maybe it's because I'm amused by his futile attempts to be a badass criminal. Then he sports this amazing "disguise" in an attempt to evade the cops when he sneaked out, anklet-less once again. I mean look, it says right on the box, even, that it takes care of cramps, bloating, fatigue, and backache. I don't even know that the show cares that much about this story, because they had Abe and Lexie find out about the diagnosis off-screen.
I'm not sold on this relationship with Ava for several reasons, but when they kissed I didn't recoil in horror, so that's an improvement. With his "patient" Kate: I've never had a doctor comfort me like that. Because if it's something like she and Daniel had a fling, why didn't she wig out long ago? Making out with her in front of her dad and the rest of her extended family at the 4th of July party being just the latest example. The whole conversation was just squicktastic -- "we know what kind of favor she wanted" and "my last three girlfriends were in their early 20s" and ewewewewew. First he left his illegally-removed ankle monitor randomly in a paper bag on the floor of the living room. First of all, that is second-worst wearing of a baseball hat disguise in the history of Salem. I'm not going to pretend that I was dying to see their immediate reaction to the news, but this just seems like such an obvious attempt to shoehorn in a "meaningful" story without sufficient build-up that it annoys me tremendously.
