Updated: June 18.
On Twitter, Peter Reckell (Bo) has posted this message for his fans: “‘Days of Our Lives’ has been my home, my life, for almost 30 years. Bo is a character that developed From my soul, and has touched many lives, but none more than my own. I took my place in the hierarchy of the show, in the storyline, moving others aside, in the 80s. Now others have moved into the place I once held. I have been very fortunate to have had such a long, meaningful, run. But now, with a torn heart, I have to say goodbye to the people, family, the character, that I love. You have to know this has not been easy. I do not want to give up Bo, and with luck, in the future, will be able to return to the character that I fought so hard to preserve. Thank you for being the most supportive, forgiving, loyal viewers there are. You have given me strength in difficult times. You are the reason ‘DOOL’ is still standing and will continue for years to come. Thank you for all you have given me and the character I love!” Read the rest of this entry »
