A Martinez, who plays Eduardo Hernandez, will be returning to Days Of Our Lives (DOOL), according to Soaps.com.
Eduardo is Gabi Hernandez (Camila Banus) and Rafe Hernandez’ (Galen Gering) father. He departed Salem on April 10, 2017 when he was arrested and sent to a Chicago prison. The character’s reappearance may coincide with Gering’s exit from the sudser, which is expected in the coming weeks.
There had also been rumors this past May that Gabi would also be departing Salem after Banus posted an audition tape on Twitter and indicated she was available for work. But the actress put those rumors to rest quickly.
“I have been self taping auditions since 2005…ummm why is everyone having a cow?” Banus posted on Twitter shortly afterward.
Martinez has portrayed the Hernandez patriarch since 2015, but it wasn’t his first soap stint. He played Cruz Castillo on Santa Barbara from 1984 to 1992, Roy DiLucca on General Hospital from 2000 to 2002, Ray Montez on One Life To Live from 2008 to 2009 and Dr. Ramon Montgomery on The Bold And The Beautiful from 2011 to 2012.
Most recently, the actor has been appearing on the digital series The Bay as Nardo Ramos and had been a regular on the prime-time series Longmire from 2012 to 2017.
