When the casting call for the character went out, he was described as "everything a woman could want in a man — he is funny, quick-witted, protective, intelligent and makes an honest living working hard and loving what he does. He can come off as edgy not angry.”
Look for her son to be connected to the Horton family, and for him to cross paths with Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus).
Did Valerie have a child with her ex-lover David Banning? We will find out soon.
David is Julie's (Susan Seaforth Hayes) son, and was last played by Greg Marx in 1982.
In a video that was posted online and has since been deleted, Hayes confirmed that Lamon Archey has been cast as David and Valerie's son, Eli Grant.
