Soap Dish: Peter Reckell Leaving Days Of Our Lives

June 15, 2012

It is a double dose of Soap Dish this week my friends but I just couldn’t wait to dish about the news that the amazing Peter Reckell is leaving Days of Our Lives, sad.

Thanks to a Tweet from Peter’s wife the other day fans are now aware that Reckell is for sure leaving the show he has been a part for almost 30-years. Here is what she had to say.

“Hard to say goodbye to characters who’ve been on 4ever!! Hard 2 believe Bo will be one of those shortly!”

As for why the hunky actor is leaving, well there is a lot of speculation on that with the main point having to do with money. There are allegations that Peter was asked to take a sizeable pay cut, which he did in his previous negotiations. I don’t know if that is true or not and I don’t even want to speculate about the why because it isn’t going to change the inevitable which is, Reckell will soon be off the NBC soap opera. I will say this though if this is true shame on NBC, get rid of some of the dumb teens before you sacrifice a star like him, just saying.

What I want to focus on is how freaking much he will be missed. I realize that from 1992 to 1995 the role of Bo Brady was played by another actor, who actually did a pretty good job, however that was almost 20 years ago. Peter is Bo plain and simple, if Reckell is leaving Bo must leave too. If they do a recast I might have to stop watching Days and I am not kidding about that. However what I don’t want them to do is kill me off, that is fine for Lexie but Bo can’t die.

I got off on a little tangent there sorry. Anyway Peter will be sorely missed and Days will not be the same without him. I wish him luck in his future endeavors but no matte what he does he will always be Bo Brady to me.
