Peter Reckell on 'Days of our Lives': "I Called the Show to See if it was Time for Bo to Make an Appearance"
|Longtime Days of our Lives co-stars Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso.|
"4 those of u who r concerned or have been led astray by rumors,let me clarify things," he wrote. "My reasons for leaving r the same as David Letterman’s … He left his show of many years to spend time with his family. If you spent an hour with my daughter [Loden] you'd see why I would rather be with her… Our time with our children is so very short ,I want to spend as much time as I can with my family. I missed a lot, and I had to change that."
Later, the actor revealed that he had a recent discussion with the show about Bo possibly making a visit.
"Weeks ago you filled me in on what was happening with Hope's storyline," Reckell wrote. "I called the show to see if it was time for Bo to make an appearance.... With the connection Bo and Hope have always shared, I thought he could give her the OK to move on with her life, in a dream or something.... But the writers have written far ahead, and my suggestions are a bit too late. Which makes sense, so nothing came of that conversation."
Addressing comments he received from fans, he said, "You say Bo's actions are out of character. That's a writer's way of foreshadowing something ,in character ,happening down the road."
Regarding the tweet he made about there potentially being "some progress", he clarified, "Sorry if I got your hopes up re Days. When I said there's movement, its for something else. That Old saying about doors opening." and closing;)."
