Tyler Christopher reveals why he left Days of Our Lives and if he'd go back as Stefan DiMera. Read more here--->>
Earlier this year, Tyler Christopher wrapped up his run as Stefan O. DiMera on Days of Our Lives and he spoke with Soaps In Depth about the real reason he left the show.
For his new soap role, Christopher had relocated with his family from California to Indiana believing that the cost of living would be much more affordable but eventually, the commute and other challenges wore on him.
He relates that his kids were soon asking why is he gone so long and the important events in their lives that he was missing as a father. The challenges proved too much for Christopher and he tells SID, "Alchohol addiction is something I've battled since I was a teenager. I've had some amazing success with it and some really awful failures." As a result, he left the NBC daytime drama in September 2018 and noted, "I needed to address those issues and figure that part of my life out so potentially, I could come back with a different energy and adapt to a different game plan." Christopher also spoke about his healing process and a book he's writing where he will be pretty open about his struggles over the years. His intention, however, is to help others.
