Casey Deidrick is leaving DAYS OF OUR LIVES and the roll of Chad DiMera. The actor tweeted the news on Thursday: "Taped my final episode today on #DOOL. One more day of filming tomorrow. What an amazing experience, thank you all!"
Deidrick will last air on DAYS on October 30. He guest-starred in GLEE and REVOLUTION earlier this year.
“I think that Chad is a very important role," he told Soap Opera Digest. "I feel like carrying on the DiMera name is important for the show. If the show decided to recast Chad, I wouldn’t be opposed to it. The show must go on. But if they ever asked me to come back and do a couple of episodes here and there, I would never be opposed to doing that.”
