A lot of changes are set to happen next month when Days of our Lives makes an incredible time jump, and while storyline details have been kept relatively under wraps, some casting changes have hit the Internet.
With the NBC soap opera reportedly moving forward in time by an entire year, many of the show's younger characters are said to be experiencing Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome (SORAS). Popular DAYS site Jason 47 reports that Dexter and Jaxton Ellis are set to leave their role as baby David Rideway, while Harper and Sydnee Udell are reportedly set to depart after six years of playing the role of Arianna Horton.
Meanwhile, with both Sarah Horton (Linsey Godfrey) and Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) currently pregnant, both characters may soon have babies in their arms -- if everything goes smoothly, that is!
At this time, DAYS has yet to reveal which child actors have taken on the roles of SORASed characters David and Arianna. For more information on what's in store for the soap's upcoming time jump storyline, check out an interview with the soap's executive producer, Ken Corday, as well as some teasers about the "unusual" story from Drake Hogestyn (John Black) and Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans).
