It looks like Days of our Lives is losing longtime actor Bryan Dattilo.

In an unexpected post on Twitter on Wednesday, Days of our Lives actor, Bryan Dattilo, just pretty much let everyone know that he is leaving the NBC soap. At least that’s what it looks like in his message. He is saying goodbye to his fans.

His shocking post

Dattilo has been playing the role of Lucas Horton for 25 years. He has been off and on throughout the years, but he has become a staple on the soap. Although it was not an ‘official’ announcement that he was exiting Days of our Lives, this is pretty darn close. The main indicator was when he told fans to enjoy his character while they still could. “25 years. 2 months. 12 days. And 4 hours. Good run. Thanks to my Days family and fans. Enjoy Lucas while you can,” he wrote.

This tweet sounds pretty final. As Soaps She Knows indicated, Lucas has just begun a new slow-moving relationship with Chloe. It’s not exactly a hot romance at the moment, but they are taking it slow and steady.
