Blake Berris Leaves Days of Our Lives.
Days of Our Lives, can report another loss in the casting department.
It’s been announced that Blake Berris (Nick Fallon) will actually be leaving the show in January. This won’t come as a shock to many. Since he went off the deep end and killed Trent Robbins, prison or a mental facility seemed to be the only options for the character. This will make him the first character in a very long time who will actually be punished for committing a crime. Since he’s actually taken responsibility for what he’s done, he’s managed to prove that the Horton’s really are classier than everyone else.
This loss follows on a string of losses for the show. Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) and Drake Hogestyn (John Black DiMera) are both departing from the show (read more here) and, amidst the rash of deep budget cuts that are being made to keep the show airing, many are nervous that more departures may follow.
In the meantime, Berris already has work on Primetime TV. He has a recurring role on the series, “The Starter Wife” and, with his excellent performance on Days, to add to his reel, he’s sure to get more work.
Soap Opera Fan Blog wishes him all the best in his future career.
