While, it is easy to spot such daytime legends as Melody Thomas Scott (The Young and the Restless‘ long running Nikki) in pre-soap genre fare as The Car, (the original)Piranha and The Fury, now and then those who are known, primarily, for their genre work show up on afternoon serials, as well.
Blake Adams, who played rowdy cowboy types in such Full Moon fare as Lurking Fear (94), Head of the Family (96) and The Killer Eye (99) recently popped up on Days of Our Lives as Cyril, a New Age style guru who almost threw a wrench into daytime television’s first gay male wedding.
Refusing to issue a license to wed to the couple’s chosen minister (the illustrious Dr. Marlena Evans, played for decades by stalwart Diedre Hall) because the energy wasn’t right, Adams/Cyril was paid a visit by the manipulative EJ DiMera.
Cyril, of course, eventually relented while Adams (who used the surname Bailey for many of his fright credits) clearly enjoyed embellishing such an oddly off character.
Keeping a little blood in the soap until next time….
