Days Of Our Lives stars down under

2014-03-14_1357Days Of Our Lives stars are coming to Australia next week ahead of the soap’s return to Australian television.

Arena is bringing Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady) and Shawn Christian (Dr Daniel Jonas) to Sydney for media rounds and an appearance at the ASTRA Awards next Thursday.

Kristian Alfonso has played the character of Hope on and off since 1983, as half of one of the couple, Bo & Hope.

“We are so excited to be coming back to Sydney… I had such a fantastic time when I was here a few years back. The show is so-loved by Australians, and we can’t wait to catch up with all our fans.”

Shawn Christian joined in 2008 and quickly as Dr. Daniel Jonas.

“The entire cast and crew of Days Of Our Lives were thrilled to hear that Foxtel picked us up in Australia, and that our fans will once again be able to enjoy their daily ‘dose’ less than 24 hours after airing in the States,” he said.

Days Of Our Lives will air only hours after the US from Tuesday, April 15 at 12.50pm EST.


  1. I too would love to see General Hospital return to Foxtel. It’s by far the best daytime soap but unfortunately it hasn’t remained on air in Australia for any great length of time. Good to see Days return but I feel for those fans, many who have watched for decades, who don’t have Foxtel.

  2. This is great, shows that Foxtel and Arena are committed to Days. I only wish their schedule allowed more appearances than just Sydney. Oh well, roll on April 1, can’t wait for Days to be back on air.

  3. I’m counting down the days until it comes back on TV. April 1st. Whoop! So excited! If only Foxtel aired the ASTRA Awards. They must be presenting an award?

  4. Wish they would do the same with General Hospital .. So wish it was back!! Maybe with the canceled Katie and betheny shows they might bring it back. Not hard to do if they can bring days back
