Lamon Archey is celebrating his 5th year anniversary as Eli Grant on Days of Our Lives.
Eli is a fictional character who made his first appearance on February 23, 2017, and was introduced as the son of established character, Valerie Grant (Vanessa Williams) and the long-lost grandson of Julie Olson Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes). As Valerie's son with Julie's late son David Banning (Gregg Marx), Eli is the product of Daytime's first interracial romance, and the first African-American member of the show's core family, the Hortons.
Archey marked Days of Our Lives history with his co-star, Sal Stowers (Lani Pryce) as they became the first African-American couple to get married on the show.
