The mysterious Wyatt arrived on DAYS OF OUR LIVES on April 5 as Ciara’s new love interest, but the following week, the young man revealed that he is not to be trusted! Who is this dangerous newcomer, and why does he seem so familiar?
Wyatt should be recognizable to DAYS fans because the actor, Scott Shilstone, actually appeared on the soap back in June of 2016 when he portrayed Bo and Hope’s son, Zack, in a dream sequence. The young boy was killed by Chelsea when she was driving recklessly in Bo’s car on New Year’s Eve, 2006. Shilstone was cast as a grown-up Zack for an episode where he appeared to his parents.

MUST SEE: A Martinez Says Goodbye to DAYS!
The casting department at DAYS must have seen something they liked, since they brought the actor back to the show for more. But this time around, Shilstone is not playing Zack Brady back from the dead (which would be difficult, seeing as how the child’s liver was donated to an ailing Claire). He’s playing Wyatt, a good-looking young man who is romancing Bo and Hope’s daughter, Ciara, after they met on a dating app. As they get to know each other, Ciara can’t believe how much they have in common and they appear to be a perfect match.
But after walking her home following their date, Wyatt secretly texted someone to thank them for the information about Ciara, saying it’s working like a charm. Who is Wyatt working with, and what nefarious plans do they have for Ciara?

Shilstone is reportedly scheduled to appear in a handful of scenes, but depending on how the storyline plays out, his run could be expanded and extended. You might also recognize the young actor from the films Pitch Perfect, Helicopter Mom, and Drumline: A New Beat.
