Days: Joe Mascolo has passed away

Recommended Posts

One of the most charismatic actors soaps have seen. He made so much of JER's campy, absurd material seem fun and yet also appropriately twisted. More than anything I enjoyed his off-kilter relationship with Celeste, and his unexplored relationship with "Alexandra." 

 

I'm glad the show kept him on-contract to the end instead of treating him as some kind of burden.

Aww man! :( I literally was just thinking about him too! I actually love mimicking his voice when I'm board at work if that doesn't sound weird, haha, but another sad loss for a dynamic daytime legend!

 

 

RIP!!! :(

I had no idea he was so I'll or that he was 87. Even though Stefano was turned into a cartoon through the writing, JM always brought humanity and a presence that still made him worth watching. A class act. No need to be sad, he lived a wonderful life and gave people a ton of pleasure over the years. Thank you, Joe!

No!! I loved Joe and Stefano Dimera.  Stefano was my favourite character on DAYS, and no matter what absurd things Stefano did, I always loved it because of Joe's portrayal.  He never phoned it in, he was always so watchable.  Some of my favourite storylines involved him: Maison Blanche, Aremid, Marlena's Possession, and Lady in a Cage.

 

 

Thank you, Joe!  RIP! :(
