Jay Kenneth Johnson and Shelley Hennig
portray on-again, off-again lovebirds Philip Kiriakis
and Stephanie Johnson. The two have had quite a tumultuous relationship since Stephanie started working as an intern for Philip in the latter part of 2008. They soon became romantically involved, but not without some interference from Melanie Layton, who also had a thing for Philip. Stephanie made it known that although she loved Philip, she couldn't deal with his cold, ruthless mannerisms in the business world. They finally made love for the first time on April 17, 2009
, but Stephanie's happiness turned to horror when Philip was shot by a hit man hired by the DiMeras. Philip recovered, then proposed to Stephanie, who happily accepted. Soon afterwards, Stephanie was kidnapped by the Kiriakis gardener Owen, who has also been secretly working for the DiMeras for the past two years. Will their love survive this latest crisis? Stay tuned!
