Days of Our Lives star Alison Sweeney (Sami) opened up to Soap Opera Digest about the recent departure of her co-star and friend Bryan Dattilo (Lucas). She has made it known that she's very upset about the decision, and apparently didn't even know they shot their last scenes together. Not only did she post on Twitter that she was "seriously devastated," but she told Digest the following:
"I am so upset, not just for me, and the cast, crew and DAYS fans who will miss him tremendously, but for Sami, too. I have no idea how they'll explain his absence, but it will, without question, be a major void in Sami's life."
Kudos for Alison for speaking out on the sad news of Bryan Dattilo being let go. My heart also goes out to all the Lucas and Sami fans, or "Lumi" fans out there who still had hope for their couple to eventually reunite. May the memories of Lumi live on in our hearts, and of course good luck to Bryan in his future projects.
