Drake Hogestyn was hired in 1986 to take over the role of "Roman Brady" after Wayne Northrop left the series after a falling out with the show's writers. Several years later Northrop approached the producers of the show about him returning to the series, which created a problem because Hogestyn had quickly became one of the show's most popular actors. In order to keep Hogestyn on the show while allowing Northrop to return to the series as Roman, a storyline was crafted that revealed that Hogestyn's Roman was actually a mercenary named John Black who had been brainwashed into thinking he was Roman Brady as punishment for betraying his employer Stefano Dimera. This allowed Hogestyn to continue on the show while allowing Wayne Northrop to resume his previous role. See more »

I started watching this regularly in the 1970s, but haven't watched in a decade or so. Now that I'm older, the melodrama, the snail's pace and the young actors aren't appealing. I LOVE this show because they bring back the veteran actors.
Anyway, when I remember, I watch the show on Christmas day. The characters used to gather round the tree and gaze at the ornaments with their names on them and reminisce.
I loved MacDonald Carey and Frances and miss their sense of stability on a show full of divorce, murder and mayhem. Nice contrast that's missing now.
