  1. I agree with Stevie G, Joseph was definitely more well known for Days, I’d forgotten he’d ever appeared on B&B. A fantastic actor who Days fans remember to this day as one of the best villains they ever had on the show. RIP.

    • I’d forgotten he ever appeared on B&B too, it came to me while I was writing the last post that he recurred as the Forrester Lawyer for a time.
