Shawn Christian Leaving 'Days of our Lives' and the Role of Dr. Daniel Jonas

Shawn Christian is leaving Days of our Lives and the role of Dr. Daniel Jonas behind.

[SPOILER ALERT]

Daytime Confidential's Jamey Giddens first mentioned Christian's possible exit back in June, and now Serial Scoop's Michael Goldberg is reporting that Daniel will be killed off.

Unlike the recent deaths of Serena Mason (Melissa Archer) and Paige Larson (True O'Brien), Daniel will not be a victim of Salem's latest serial killer. Apparently he's going to meet his maker in some other way.

Prior to Days, Christian starred in As the World Turns as Mike Kasnoff, and Summerland as Johnny Durant. His other credits include Pacific Palisades, Boston Legal, Las Vegas, Beverly Hills, 90210 and Venice. Christian has recently been busy working on the thriller Last Seen in Idaho.

  2. I simply adore Daniel , he's 1 of a few bright spots in a otherwise dull show for the most part. With all due respect, Mr. Corday seems 2 B on a mission 2 destroy his own show. E.J. .Sami ,Paige and now Daniel. Shawn is great and was loved by fans of ATWT as Mike. Shawn is and was not the problem, it's the horrible writers and awful storylines. Love u SC

    1. I totally agree. Leave the door open. Trust and believe this cast that the show has accommodated by letting others go, won't B there 4 long then what will u do. His death will affect so many people. I didn't know Days was killing Will off too. OMG What is wrong with Days?

  7. I don't want him to leave. But if he has to go they shouldn't kill him off. Maybe leave Nicole at the altar after finding out she's really still in love with Eric. He can go hang out with Melanie & Carly in Europe.

    1. Or maybe realizing that he's still in love with Jen, his true love. And only settling with Nicole cause he believed that he could never get Jen back. He told Nicole as much when he and Jen broke up. So yes let him go hang out with Melanie 4 a while.

    2. Or maybe he admits that he never stopped loving Jen and can't go through with the marriage to Nicole. Daniel broke up with Jen cause he felt he wasn't good enough for her, not cause he didn't love her. He loved the hell out of Jen and could have had Nicole years ago if he wanted her. So yes let him go hang out with Melanie for a while

  8. I've watch days since I was a little boy and can remember just about everyone but I hate the fact how there running the show right now. They brought back Bo just to kill him off and Daniel was one of the bright spots of the show and they kill him off. The way they got rid of Stefano was not at all the way he should have went out. I would love to be able to help them make this one of the best shows on TV again. For me I truly love the show. But don't like the way it been going lately could have made it a lot better myself. I'm 54 and I've been watching it since it basically started because my mother loved the show. I hope the writers take a little of what the fans would love and make this a great show again and it can be done Days you'll always be a part of me. Thanks but do remember the fans.
