Executive producer Frank Valentini promised a big surprise on Wednesday's episode and Stavros was it (along with Carly finding Brenda in bed with Michael). Head writer Ron Carlivati reveals Kelker-Kelly will appear in "a bunch of episodes spread out over a period of time."
"It really felt like Stavros was someone Luke would really like to have it out with — once and for all," Carlivati told TV Guide Magazine.
"We really wanted to revive the Spencer-Cassadine feud in a big, surprising way for the 50th anniversary," said Carlivati. "It's been Luke versus Helena for so long that we needed an additional twist, and since Stavros was never found in that bottomless pit, we don't know what really happened."
Kelker-Kelly previously played roles in DAYS OF OUR LIVES (Bo) and ANOTHER WORLD (Sam, Bobby/Shane). He's married to his former DAYS co-star Miriam Parrish.
