  1. I'm glad Philip will be back on the canvas.

    1. Yes Philip was sorely missed and very needed.

    2. Great Philip K. will be back but wish it were a better actor in the role! Yikes.

  2. I never was a regular viewer of OLTL When Rex was on, but did catch a few episodes that he was in and was not impressed. Hopefully the experience he has gained since has improved his acting abilities because the return of Phillip could be a good thing for Days.
