Soap opera fans love their heroes and heroines, characters who are always in the thick of storylines and drama. With that said, there’s nothing like the good old eccentric sidekick to our leading ladies and men (sometimes villains, too) to add a little comedy, humor, or just something a little different. Below are some minor Days of Our Lives (DOOL) characters who have really stolen the show over the years.
12. Eugene Bradford (John de Lancie)
Digging into Days’ history vault comes a character from the early 1980s. Eugene was quirky, to say the least, and while his obsession with Marlena Evans is what brought him to Salem storylines, his interesting personality is what allowed him to stay. As a writer and inventor, he dabbled in all sorts of odd things, and as interesting as his introduction into the show was, his exit in 1990 via a time machine was just as unusual as he was.
