Thaao Penghlis Speaks Out About His Exit From DAYS

In a new interview with On Air, On Soaps, DAYS OF OUR LIVES star Thaao Penghlis (Tony Dimera) discusses his being let-go and the cutting of the other veteran cast mates before and after him. He also previews what is going to precipitate Tony's exit, and says farewell to his DAYS fans.

On if he felt at some point that DAYS head writer, Dena Higley, was not going to write for him.
She did give me a clue one day. She said when she first came to the show, “I noticed you were playing two characters and I thought to myself, who wants to go there”? And I thought, “Well, that does not sound encouraging.” It only got me an Emmy nomination. I do not have complaints about it. They gave me many wonderful years of employment. I used that employment to have my own education to travel the world. In the big picture, “Am I upset about it?” No. I just wish they did not dangle me around for the last year.

On if he thinks DAYS will survive?
I will put it this way: My astrologist last November said, (and he is really terrific), I will be finished by May of 2009 and that the show will not be on past January 2010.
