Christopher who is expected to air for the first time later this year or early next year shared that he's grateful to be a part of the show. "I want to thank @nbcdays for welcoming me into their home. Although I can't comment on the character, @carlivatiron has handed me a gem of a story I am eager for you to see," he shared. In also speaking with Soap Opera Digest Christopher shares, "After only a week on DAYS OF OUR LIVES, everyone has gone above and beyond in making me feel as if I’ve been a long-time part of their iconic family. It was such an honor to play Nikolas Cassadine for 20 years on GENERAL HOSPITAL, but I can’t wait to see what kind of trouble Salem has in store for me.”
