Casey Jon Deidrick Leaving DAYS OF OUR LIVES

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.”

  1. NO DON'T LEAVE!!! Why are you leaving Casey? You are a wonderful Chad!!

  2. Good luck, Casey. Hope to see you in future projects. We know you have your band "The Last of Us" with Chandler, and you will be able to do the music video (now that it is fully funded - yeah!) and new CD coming. Hopefully you have some television or film work in the works. Sad to see you leave DOOL but hopefully this is a step in the right direction.

  3. Sad to see him go, but I heard they are recasting with a slightly older actor.
