Brandon Barash, who played Stefan DiMera on Days Of Our Lives (DOOL) may be returning to the soap, as reported by Soaps.com.
Actor Galen Gering, who portrays Rafe Hernandez, posted some photos of Barash, with other DOOL actors, on his Instagram account on November 6. The photos were from the NBC Studios set, sparking rumors that Stefan will be coming back to Salem. All the pictures have been deleted since then, which could mean producers want to keep the news a secret.
Barash had taken over the role of Stefan when Tyler Christopher left the soap in March 2019. His first appearance was on March 22. He quickly became involved in a tumultuous relationship with Gabi DiMera (Camila Banus). The pair eventually admitted their feelings for each other and were married on July 31.
Stefan passed away on DOOL on October 4. Days earlier, he had risked his own life to save his mother Vivian Alamain (Robin Strasser). Before he passed away, his heart had been donated to Julie Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes).
Barash’s last appearance as Stefan was as a ghost, speaking to his heartbroken wife just before his funeral took place on October 24.
Since DOOL shoots its episodes approximately six months in advance, it’s estimated that fans could see Barash’s return sometime in March or April.
But has Dr. Rolf (William Utay) somehow brought Stefan back to life without anyone else’s knowledge? Or will Barash be portraying a new character – maybe Stefan’s twin? And how will Gabi feel when she sees him – will fans be treated to a Stabi reunion? Keep watching DOOL to find out!
