Peter Reckell sets the record straight about why he left Days of Our Lives and discusses whether or not he'd consider returning to the soap in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest.
As to why he split his longtime role of Bo Brady, Reckell insists it had nothing to do with money. "Anybody who knows me knows that's not my priority... Not having storyline, not being able to do anything artistic there was my issue," he says.
According to Reckell, executive producer Ken Corday told him Bo would not be killed off or recast and that the door is "always open" should he want to return.
"If there's a way for me to be involved in the show and to be an artist, that's always a possibility... I would be open to talking about it," notes Reckell.
However, the actor, who's spent the last six months traveling with his wife, Kelly Moneymaker, and their daughter, Loden, to Costa Rica, France and around The States, admits he'd be just as content continuing on that path. "We're having a great time," he shares.
