Bryan R. Dattilo On Days Return
“I guess I have a title, which I like. I’m The Comeback Kid,” smiles Bryan R. Dattilo, reflecting on his latest DAYS return as Lucas Horton. “I never like leaving, but coming back is always fun.”

Dattilo’s return hasn’t been all smooth sailing, however. “I still don’t have a parking pass on the lot,” he admits. “Every time I go through security, I’m stuck at the gate. A couple of times they were like, ‘You’re not on the list. Sorry.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m an actor on the show. I swear. Bryan Dattilo. Stage 42.’ I have to give a speech to the guy.”

This time around, Lucas resurfaces in Salem, chasing after his runaway daughter, Allie, who’s pregnant. Dattilo wasn’t aware of the story twist until he got on set. “They never tell me anything,” he confides. “The multiple times I’ve come back, I have to go to the makeup room [to find out what’s going on]. I ask Deidre Decker, my makeup artist, ‘What’s happened in the last six months? What do I need to know?’ She’ll update me.”

Dattilo was intrigued by Decker’s report. “I thought it was going to be a great storyline, which it has been,” says Dattilo. “There were a couple of things that transpired where I was like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me. Really?’ Then there were some things where I was like, ‘Thank God, it’s headed back in this direction.’ ”
