Brandon Barash Celebrates A Special Milestone! Learn more here--->>
Brandon Barash (Stefan DiMera, Days of Our Lives) is celebrating 15 years in soaps!
On September 18, 2007, Barash made his debut as Johnny Zacchara on General Hospital. He played the role until 2016. Johnny arrived in Port Charles and meets Lulu Spencer (then played by Julie Marie Berman) and the two begin a flirtatious relationship. His guardian is his father's lawyer, Trevor Lansing (Stephen Macht), who covered up the fact that Johnny's father Anthony (Bruce Weitz, Anthony later turned out to be his grandfather) murdered his mother Maria because Anthony was jealous of the bond between mother and son. Although Lulu's friends disapprove, they continued to see each other, and Johnny proved his love for her when he protected her against his father at the Black and White Ball. Johnny is now being haunted by Anthony Zacchara and Hope Manning-Thornhart (Kristen Alderson) for their deaths (he shot Anthony point blank and got rid of his corpse, and killed Hope -along with her father- when he shot out Anthony's tires). Kate's (Kelly Sullivan) alter Connie blackmails Johnny into marrying her and announces it at Sonny and Kate's wedding in October 2012. Johnny confessed to the murder in January 2013 and revealed that Todd (Roger Howarth) switched Sam Morgan's baby with Tea Delgado's (Florencia Lozan). Johnny is sentenced to 20 years in Pentonville Penitentiary but before being transferred he gives Starr Manning his share of the Haunted Star.
Barash came to Days in 2019 as Stefan and later played the role of Jake DiMera. Jake was killed off this year as he reprised the role of Stefan. Please help us wish him a happy 15 years in soaps!
