Catching up with Jordi Vilasuso (ex-Dario, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) at Starstruck’s YesterDAYS Fan Event, November 10th, 2017.
WHAT DID YOU ENJOY THE MOST ABOUT PLAYING “DARIO” ON DAYS OF OUR LIVES?
Jordi: I loved Dario when a woman accepted him and liked him. There was only one woman and she left him soon after because he was in some various dubious activities and wanted him nothing to do with him. I loved Dario when he finally had a foothold with someone and had some security. That was fun. Otherwise it was always reaching in desperation. It’s fine but in terms of storylines you want. I really liked Dario at the end when he was finally committed. We’re going to do this. We’re going to get married. Abigail and I are going to have this life. Of course, it fell apart; and I knew it was going to fall apart. And I’m sure the audience did as well.
WHAT PROJECTS ARE GOING ON FOR YOU RIGHT NOW THAT YOU CAN TELL US ABOUT?
Jordi: I did three movies right after DAYS. I did one called Fly Cooper which is an independent movie about a private detective. I play the character of Clyde. I have another movie called Killer Island that I believe will be on Lifetime which I just saw some of the movie yesterday and it’s very good. And I just completed another movie called Frained which is another thriller that I don’t know. It’s an independent film. I don’t know where it’s going to be.
WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR FANS WHO HAVE FOLLOWED YOU THROUGHOUT YOUR ACTING CAREER?
Jordi: Just grateful. Grateful for the love, grateful for rooting for me and the storylines and I look forward to showing them more stories as my career goes on.
