For over 50 years now, Days of Our Lives (DOOL) has been entertaining soap opera fans with the daily trials and tribulations of Salem residents. While the daytime drama has been known to capitalize on the popularity of many characters that made them famous in the ‘80s with storylines revolving around fan favorites Patch, Kayla, Hope, Victor, John, and Marlena — the soap has also proven to be a revolving door for many actors along the way. We’ve seen characters come and go (and return), but there is also a vast number of popular Salemites that have left the show that are missed, never to return again. Below is a list of seven popular, but forgotten DOOL actors.
7. Billy Warlock
When one mentions the name ‘Billy Warlock’ visions of Eddie Kramer running down a beach may come to mind. While he may be best known for his Baywatch character, Warlock was also a huge soap opera actor at one point, appearing on shows like As the World Turns, One Life to Life, and The Young and the Restless. His two most famous daytime drama roles included a run as the infamous AJ Quartermaine on General Hospital, as well as Frankie Brady on DOOL. Playing the character on-and-off from 1986 all the way to 2010, Frankie was a popular staple on the show at one point and the love interest of fan favorite, Jennifer Horton. With no real love interest currently in Jenn’s life, DOOL fans can only hope that a return by Frankie could change all that and rekindle an incredible romance.
