Jordi Vilasuso Finally Arrives as Dario Hernandez on 'Days of our Lives'

Jordi Vilasuso
It's hard to believe, but it was on August 28 when Serial Scoop broke the news that Jordi Vilasuso was joining the cast of Days of our Lives. Vilasuso is now talking about his role of Dario Hernandez, the character previously played by Francisco San Martin.

The actor tells Soap Opera Digest the role came about last summer when he was thinking about returning to daytime. According to Vilasuso, "Ken [Corday, executive producer] reached out and said they were [expanding]the Hernandez family."

Vilasuso then met with Corday, Co-Executive Producer Albert Alarr and Co-Head Writer Josh Griffith. He responded to the intelligence of the character and says, "Dario is also very passionate and outspoken. He has a short fuse. I was so ready and wanting to play this guy."

Vilasuso first worked with Eric Martsolf (Brady) and Marie Wilson (Summer), and Brady will encounter Dario working as a bartender in California.

The actor is slated to first appear on the Friday February 19 episode of Days of our Lives.

Welcome to Days Jordi!
