This Friday, Dylan Patton will step into the role of Will on Days of Our Lives.
The character returns this week after spending an extended trip away from home with his Aunt Carrie and Uncle Austin.
"Dylan's playing the same age Lucas was when I first came on the show. I like him. He's a very good actor and an earthy, rugged dude," said Bryan Datillo in a statement released via Soap Opera Weekly.
Will was last seen in November 2007, when he was played by actor Christopher Gerse.
