10 years ago, Shawn Christian began an unforgettable journey. Christian originated the role of Daniel Jonas on March 4, 2008. Although he originally signed a one-year contract, he extended his stay on the show and played the role for a number of years. Unfortunately, after an almost 8-year run on the show, the character was killed off in January 2016 as a result of a fatal car crash caused by Eric's (Greg Vaughan) drunk driving. Christian since then has reprised the role numerous times for some ghostly appearances with his most recent being in 2017.
Although his character was never married, he was romantically paired with several women including; Kate (Lauren Koslow), Chelsea (ex-Rachel Melvin), Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin), Carly (ex-Crystal Chappell), Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) and Nicole (ex-Arianne Zucker). He most significantly worked as Physician at the Salem University Hospital. It is no doubt that his character will always be missed but fans will forever the remember his time on the show.
