Peter Reckell leaving Days of our Lives – temporarily
Actor Peter Reckell, who plays Bo Brady, is temporarily leaving NBC soap Days of our Lives.
Days of our Lives actor Peter Reckell, who plays Bo Brady on the NBC soap, is to be written out of the daytime series. However, his departure from the soap is only on a temporary basis and he’s expected to be off screens for around a month. Reckell is being written out of the soap because his character, Bo, has been on-screen too often and this means the actor is nearly up to his “guaranteed” number of episodes per year. If Reckell where to go over the number of episodes “guaranteed” in his contract the soap would have to pay him extra for future episodes and with budgets being tightened this simply isn’t a long-term prospect for Days of our Lives. So instead the actor will disappear from screens for a month but fans shouldn’t fear as he will return to the soap after the absence.
