Days of Our Lives Spoilers: Brandon Barash Opens Up About Jake’s Death
When asked about Jake’s death and whether or not he would play Stefan again, Brandon said, “I felt like Jake kind of lost his way. His storyline just kind of stopped. I took that as they either didn’t know what to do with him anymore or they were going to get rid of me or get rid of the character.”
That said, Brandon said there sure was a lot that he missed about playing Stefan. But then again, fans aren’t surprised at all. Some would even say that Stefan was Brandon’s sexier half! He said, “Jake could never sit still. He always had to be doing something, touching something or messing with something. Stefay is a very still being. He doesn’t waste energy anywhere. That was really fun to rediscover.”
When asked if it was easy to switch back, Brandon said, “It’s been easier than I thought, yet it’s been a lot more deliberate than I had initially imagined. Playing Jake made me learn a lot more about Stefan than I know when I was there in the first place. It’s almost like seeing an old friend after a long time and really sitting down with that person and listening to them. It’s been a joy to play him again. It really has been.”
