Joseph Mascolo's (formerly Stefano on Days of Our Lives, until a recent, unhappy dismissal) is not taking his firing quietly.
On his website, Mascolo has spoken out about his treatment at Days of Our Lives and is asking fans to do the same:
"To all of you who have expressed your outrage to me for the pathetic and uninspired manner in which Stefano DiMera has been written out of Days of Our Lives after just being named “One of the Greatest Soap Opera Villains of All Time” in Soap Opera Digest Magazine, I thank you for your support...
And if you are so inclined, please let your feelings known by writing or emailing the show directly:
www.daysofourlives.com or to www.soapoperadigest.com. If you prefer, you can write to Days of Our Lives, c/o NBC Studios, 3000 West Alameda Avenue, Burbank, CA 91523. Thank you all for your comments and support."
