Matthew Ashford is gearing up for his triumphant return as Jack Deveraux on Days of Our Lives. It is no doubt one of the biggest moments in history as he's finally returning as a living character rather than his usual ghostly visit. Of course, while that is big news, Ashford has another reason to be celebrating today. It is the anniversary of his first 'Days' episode. Longtime viewers of the NBC dramatic serial would remember, Ashford, debuting in the role on October 30, 1987. At that time he became the third actor to play the role. Ashford took over the role from previous portrayers; Joseph Adams and James Acheson. His first scenes were phone calls while Jack was on his honeymoon with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans). Ashford's Jack became an all-time fave and his pairing with Melissa Reeves' Jennifer Horton was a hot topic and remains on even to this day. As we anticipate his grand return, take a look back at some early scenes below! Happy anniversary Matthew!
