Soap Comebacks: Shaughnessy on 'Days of Our Lives,' Nouri on 'All My Children'

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 9th 2010 3:02PM
charles_shaughnessy_glassesCan you name two tall, dark and handsome television stars who will soon be delving into daytime? No, it's not a trick question, it's news. Yesterday, 'All My Children' will be welcoming Michael Nouri to the ABC soap as a new romantic adversary for Erica Kane. As for the other man, it's none other than Charles Shaughnessy, who will be returning to 'Days of Our Lives' to reprise the role he originated in 1984.

You may recall Shaughnessy from his recent stint on 'Mad Men' -- as St. John Powell, director of the British ad agency that acquired Sterling Cooper -- as well as his best-known role, as Mr. Sheffield on 'The Nanny.' But he was wonderful on 'Days' in the '80s and early '90s.

Shane Donovan was the quintessential James Bond of daytime (aside from Tristan Rogers on 'General Hospital'). He was a secret agent with the ISA (International Security Agency), and brought a lot of class and elegance to the show. The fact that he's coming back now is a real plus for the NBC soap, and a shout out to longtime fans who remember Shane.

David CanaryABC has officially confirmed what many soap opera fans have been speculating for months: Fan favorite David Canary ('All My Children') is retiring.

The actor will continue to appear on the show through the end of April, setting up for a major power struggle within the Chandler household.

"My career on 'All My Children' has given me more than words could ever convey, both professionally and personally," Canary said in a statement.

Luckily, Canary's retirement won't mean the final end to Adam. "I will be back to check up on the Chandler clan," he added.

Without Adam appearing on a regular basis, 'AMC' will have to find someone with the combined evil of JR Ewing, Hannibal Lecter and Simon Bar Sinister to fill the void. Canary, who started on the show in 1984, won Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Lead Actor in 1986, 1988, 1989, 1993 and 2001,making him one of soaps' most celebrated actors.
