Days of Our Lives Spoilers: All About Mark Colson’s ‘Devilish’ Comeback
If you blinked you might have missed him, but Mark returned to Days of Our Lives to reprise his role as Gabe the Angel. The last time he was on the show was back in 1994 and 1995 for 9 episodes as part of Marlena Evans’ (Deidre Hall) possession storyline.
Speaking to the Detroit Free Press in a new interview, before he agreed to come back to the show, he said, “I got the call from my agent and I was like, ‘Do they know I can still act?'”
As many fans can recall, Marlena was under the spell of the devil and levitated off her bed in one of the most iconic scenes in television history. Gabriel turned out to be a guardian angel for John Black (Drake Hogestyn). He believed he was a priest but later married Marlena.
Mark says that working on the set of the Days of Our Lives was a great experience, as both Deidre and Drake were very welcoming to him. “I could hear this voice across the soundstage (yelling) “Where’s Gabriel?,'” he says, describing how Hogestyn greeted him.
