Evil crimelord Stefano DiMera is dead for sure

From TooFab:

“It is with great sorrow that we share the news the news of the passing of our dear friend and beloved member of the Days of our Lives family, Joseph Mascolo,” the show’s Executive Producer Ken Corday told Soap Opera Digest in a statement. “The smile on Joe’s face is something we’d all come to find comfort in, and he will be sorely missed. His larger than life presence, kind heart, and unwavering positivity has impacted us all for decades, and will live on in the memories of his many fans. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.”

The actor first joined “Days” in 1983, when he originated the DiMera role. He’d play the show’s bad boy from 1983-1985, again in 1988 and from 1993-2001. In 2001, he began playing Massimo Marone on CBS’s “The Bold and the Beautiful,” but ultimately left that series to once again return to “Days.”
