Actor, producer, and musician Patrick Muldoon started his acting career as a supporting character in “Saved by the Bell.” Then, in 1992, he joined the cast of “Days of Our Lives” to take in the role of Austin Reed, an aspiring boxer.
Muldoon stayed on the show until 1995 and then came back from 2011 to 2012. Apart from his role on DOOL, Muldoon starred in several TV shows and movies since the early 90s. Like many other soap opera stars (his own cast mates included), a lot of his non-soap work has been for channels like Lifetime and Hallmark.
The handsome model, singer, broadcaster, dancer, and actor Eric Martsolf joined the cast of DOOL in 2008. His many talents helped him to take over the role of Brady Black after Kyle Lowder left the show. Martsolf had starred in the famous soap opera "Passions" for six years until the show was taken off the air.
The actor's most well-recognized part is in DOOL. Apart from other small roles in TV shows like "Rizzoli & Isles," Martsolf continues to play Brady Black in "Days of Our Lives" to this day. He won a Daytime Emmy for his portrayal of Black in 2014.
Former model Eileen Davidson had her acting debut in the soap opera world and she hasn't left it since. In 1982, she was cast in "The Young and the Restless," as Ashley Abbott. Then she went on to star in "The Bold and the Beautiful," until being cast in "Days of Our Lives" in 1993.
Davidson played two characters in DOOL, that of Kristen Blake and that of her doppelganger, Susan Banks. Davidson continued on DOOL until 2021, during which time she also wrote various mystery novels and appeared in the famous reality TV show, "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."
Years before she became one of the most prominent wives in the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Lisa Rinna first appeared on screen in a music video by John Parr. That was the start of her on-screen career. Shortly after, in 1992, she was cast as the gorgeous Billie Reed on "Days of Our Lives," a role she kept until 1995.
Rinna was then cast in the famous show "Melrose Place" until 1998. She returned to "Days of Our Lives" in 2002, 2012, and 2018, while simultaneously starring in several Hallmark and Lifetime movies. Other shows she’s acted in include "Veronica Mars," and "CSI."
Before she played the strong, opinionated matriarch of the Brady family, Caroline Brady, actress Peggy McCay was a theater performer. In 1983, she was cast as Caroline and she played the famous role until 2016, during which time she won and was nominated for several awards.
Apart from her role in "Days of Our Lives," McCay acted in many television films throughout the years, such as "Silk Hope" and "No Man’s Land." She passed away in 2018, at the ripe age of 90, leaving behind a fabulous career and a respectable legacy, though sadly, she never married or had a family of her own.
