It’s official: Days of our Lives star Christopher Sean, who joined the cast as Paul Narita in 2014, has left Days of our Lives. The popular actor taped his final episode on May 25, the same day as Marci Miller (who is being replaced by former Abigail, Daytime Emmy winner Kate Mansi).
Over the course of four years, Paul was revealed to be the son of John Black (played by Drake Hogestyn) and romanced Sonny Kiriakis (played by Freddie Smith) and is currently in a romance with the recently returned Will Horton (played by Chandler Massey). Though fans of the actor and his pairings will be saddened by his departure, Sean already has a new project lined up. As previously reported, Christopher Sean will star in the new Star Wars animated series Star Wars Resistance.
In a video posted on Instagram, Christopher Sean addressed his departure, writing in the caption: “I want to let you all know from me. It was my decision to depart from ‘Days of Our Lives’. I loved every day I was a part of it and am so appreciative to the entire Cast and Crew and to Bruce Evans, Ken Corday, Greg Meng, Albert Alarr, Janet and Marnie and everyone that’s helped me develop into the actor and man I am today. I will miss each and every one of you. This is not good bye though, it’s until next time. I can’t thank all of the Fans enough and I hope that I can find another project to keep you entertained with me in the near future :) Thank you for always supporting me and loving me. You all rock! Stay amazing my friends. I will never forget my Days at Days. They were some of the Greatest ‘Days of My Life’.”
Christopher Sean is expected to air through the fall as a result of Days of our Lives’ production schedule. We hear his exit will play into a very exciting storyline.
