Darin Brooks was recently interviewed by Soap Opera Weekly. The magazine asked the Days of Our Lives star about a certain new co-star...

Soap Opera Weekly: What was your reaction when you learned veteran daytime star Roscoe Born (Trent) had been cast as your dad?
Darin Brooks: I actually didn't know until a couple of days before he started. The [Days of Our Lives] producers were kind of keeping it under wraps. Ed Scott (co-executive producer), Noel Maxam (supervising producer) and Kathy Foster (director) kept coming up to me, going:

"So, are you excited? You know who your father is going to be, right?" I'd say, "No, nobody told me yet." They'd say, "Oh, okay. Never mind. Just know that we're excited, and it will be good. He's a really good actor."

Weekly: Have you learned anything from working with Roscoe?
Brooks: He's a man of surprises. He likes to do things to surprise you, catch you off guard, and maybe get you into a special moment or place during a scene. One thing I've learned now is to surprise him back. I throw it back at him sometimes and see what we can do. So far, it's been great.
