“Days of Our Lives” fans have gotten used to the idea that the character of John Black is officially a part of the ongoing storylines in Salem yet again. His romance with Marlena is back on track, and he’s developing a relationship with Paul, the adult son he didn’t know he had until only recently, and he’s even started a new private investigative business with friend Steve Johnson.
However, all of those storylines will come to a startling halt for the foreseeable future as actor Drake Hogestyn, 62, had a terrible accident while working and suffered some pretty serious injuries. He’s reported to be doing well, but will be off work at “Days of Our Lives” until he’s fully recovered.
A source says that Drake was “severely injured at work about six weeks ago and due to the many injuries he sustained, he has been written out of the show for an unspecified period of time to allow him to heal from his injuries.”
We’re all wishing Drake a speedy recovery!
