Veteran actor James Read will be returning to Days Of Our Lives (DOOL) during the week of November 18. Read plays Clyde Weston, Jordan Ridgeway’s (Chrishell Hartley) stepfather and Ben Weston’s (Robert Scott Wilson) father.
The actor also played Hamilton Finn’s (Michael Easton) father George Chase on General Hospital for several episodes in 2018. His first appearance on DOOL as Clyde was in June 2014 – his last appearance was in October 2018.
Clyde has had a tumultuous relationship with both his children. He abused them when they were young, and they ran away from home and hid from him for years. When he found them in Salem, he tried to make amends. Ben accepted his father back in his life, but Jordan still wanted nothing to do with him.
He also was a rival to mob boss Victor Kiriakis (John Aniston), but the men decided to eventually call a truce when they worried about how their hostilities could escalate and affect their children. A few years later, however, Victor teamed up with Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) to try to put an end to Clyde.
Read starred in the 1985 mini-series North & South, Book I and the sequel, Book II as George Hazard. The actor returned to the same role, when Heaven & Hell: North & South, Book III aired in 1994.
He also appeared on many TV series in the 1980s including Remington Steele, Cheers, Trapper John, M.D., Fantasy Island, Hotel and Matt Houston. More recently, Read has had guest-star spots on This Is Us, Castle, CSI: NY and NCIS.
According to DOOL spoilers, Clyde will visit Ben in jail. But what has Ben done this time to land himself in the slammer? And how will he feel when he sees his father? Keep watching DOOL to find out!
