Jordi Vilasuso Speaks Out on Days of Our Lives Exit

Jordi Vilasuso, Dario Hernandez on Days of Our Lives.

Vilasuso posted to his social media his thoughts on leaving the show he’s called home since last year, Days of Our Lives.

Bittersweet Goodbye

Vilasuso posted a wistful pic of himself strolling down a beach–looking mighty fine, if we at Soap Cities do say so ourselves–with a caption detailing his thoughts on his departure from the NBC sudser.

He said he wished Dario had gone in a different direction. We kind of liked getting to see a naughty side of Vilasuso, as we already knew he could be the sweet, smart, kind guy from his All My Children days, where he played dashing doc, Griffin Castillo. But we too would have liked to see Dario go “in another direction,” as Vilasuso put it too if it would have kept him at Days longer.

F0rever Means For the Time Being

Before you read his post, which is written from the heart and with writerly skill, remember what we always like to tell our readers: this is soaps, where there’s no such things as never! Vilasuso could always return. You never know–the actor could reprise his AMC role if/when that ABC soap gets picked up by an online carrier!

Yes, it’s true- my Days are numbered. I’ve been wanting to speak on this for awhile but out of respect and love for the show I’ve stayed quiet. @nbcdays has brought me so much joy! NBC, Sony, Ken Corday @gregmeng , Albert Alarr, and the entire crew who make this show possible have all been such pleasure to work for and with. Although I wish Dario would have gone in a different direction, being a part of the Hernandez family was one of the best parts of the gig thanks to @abonemartinez , @ggering, and @camilabanus. Mi familia always took me on a rollercoaster of belly hurting laughter and tears that I would look forward to whenever I got the opportunity to mix it up with them. I’m grateful to the women that escaped Dario’s grasp as well.. 😉 @ari8675, @ximenaduque, and @_marcimiller_ are such beautiful actors both inside and out and always inspired me to work at a higher level. Lastly, the fans! You are the ones who keep this show going. I’ve gotten to know some of you personally and your passion for the stories and characters is infectious. Your opinions of Dario were hilarious and often mutually shared! Ha! So here’s to @nbcdays ! May you have many more years to come! It’s been a hell of a ride! #dool #nextchapter #lookingforward
