Kyler Pettis inadvertently announced his Days of Our Lives departure as Theo Carver, when he posted his final scenes on his Vimeo account and tweeted it with a link Tuesday.

The 24 year-old actor’s video was quickly made private and then deleted from his account shortly thereafter.

Kyler Pettis Confirms Leaving Days of Our Lives

The video is now posted and widely available on the internet in various Days websites and Facebook groups, so we feel compelled to report the news to you, dear Soap Cities readers.

Pettis’ exit follows the recent on-screen departure of fellow co-star James Lastovic, who played fellow teen Joey Johnson on the show.

SORAS’ed Salem Teen Scene!

The character of Theo was aged less than two years ago during the 50th Anniversary of Days when Pettis replaced Terrell Ransom, Jr. in the role.  Theo is the son of the late Dr. Lexie Carver and Salem Police Commissioner Abe Carver.   He was part of the SORAS’ed teen scene along with Claire Brady, Ciara Brady, Chase Jennings (ex-Jonathon McClendon) and Joey Johnson.

With the show taping six months in advance, we can expect to see these goodbye scenes with Pettis sometime early next year.

So dear readers, what do you think about Pettis’ departure as Theo from the show?  Will he be missed or should he be recast?

  1. Keep Theo, and in a year bring him back. Kyler is great as Theo he’s made the part his. We have lost so many good actors lately it’s time that it’s enough.

  2. Hate to see him leave, great actor, played the part of Theo so good. He will be missed. Hope that he will come back to continue this role.

  3. He is definitely one of the characters I hate to see go. This young man is excellent at portraying Theo I hope the executives and the writers have a change of heart and leave things as they are or just have him on a short hiatus.

  4. Just love Kyler as Theo, what a great actor and so believable. Would not like to see him recast, hope he will be brought back in the year as suggested.

  5. Guys , if Kyler wants to leave the show then that’s his decision, ‘NOT!!!!” yours, I totally understand that you guys likes him as Theo but if he wants to leave, then there’s “NOTHING!!!!” we can do about it, cause it’s HIS!!!! decision, not yours or mine, it’s “HIS” so can you guys please let this guy live his life and move on? gosh. sick and tired of seeing all these “let Kyler keeping playing Theo when he gets back comments” let this men live his life for heaven’s sake. not everybody every actor or actress is going to last in Days forever you know?, some of the characters are gonna leave Salem and some of them are going be “KILLED!!!!” off. that happens in ALOT!!! of daily drama series.

    • The question was asked and fans have answered… we all love the role Kyle Pettis has played as Theo Carver and would Love to see him come back. No need to have a meltdown because of this. It is understood that when an actor chooses to move on, it is their choice to do so, but given the option to come back when they’re ready, and giving the fans a choice if they want them back or replaced, we, the fans, are voicing our opinion that we would Love to have him come back instead of replaced. Can you live with that?

    • Yes Yes you are right. I have been watching days for many many years. Yes I am sadden to see Kyler leave the show as well as many others that have left the show. But we have to remember that this is a job to these actors and they sometimes want move on to do other things, just as you and i do every day. Some of these actors are not going to stay for ever. I am sadden to see him go, but wish him well, Where ever life takes him he will do well. Hoping to see him on other shows. Days producers and writers please recast…..Kyler continue to following dreams.

  6. I was under the impression he was coming back inside a year no one gonna b able to nail this role like him.i hope the writers think this out

  7. I do not understand the reasoning behind this decision .Hope he survives the gun shot ,and stays on ,he is a wonderful character

  8. Please bring him back. I love this young man. He can’t be replaced at all. So please don’t try to replace him. If you have to pay him more money then do it!! He’s GREAT!!!

  9. I wouldn’t be surprised if the character of Theo is off screen just for a bit.This wouldn’t be the first time Days writes a character off temporarily because they need to move other things along and they can’t do it while that character is onscreen.For example while Theo is off screen maybe Claire and Tripp start getting together and then just as they do Theo returns.So i wouldn’t be surprised if the show brings Theo back sooner rather than later but whether it’s Kyler Pettis or a new actor playing him is to be determined.

      I think Theo Carver should stay and he should come out of his come soon and reveal that Kate is the one that is responsible for him being shot and in a coma.
