Francisco San Martin (Dario) is the latest casualty to be fired from Days of Our Lives. The actor posted the news on Twitter last week on June 9: "i wanted you guys to hear it from me first; DOOL has decided to bring back some of the old characters and i'll be one of the casualties." He also tweeted that his last tape date would be in early July, but his character would still be airing for about two months after that. The actor also mentioned via Twitter that he still plans to attend the 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday, June 19 in Las Vegas.
Fans recall that Francisco San Martin first aired last November as the patient who died as a result of the Loma virus while under Nathan and Melanie's care. He made his first appearance as Dario Hernandez in March of this year and attempted to find his sister Arianna's killer while butting heads with Melanie. Some fans were warming up to the idea of Dario and Melanie, but other fans unfortunately didn't care for the potential pairing or for the character of Dario. I admit that I'm sorry to see him go!
Best wishes to Francisco San Martin in his future endeavors! You can keep up with the actor by following him on Twitter.
