It's official — Kyle Lowder is leaving DAYS OF OUR LIVES where he as been playing Rex Brady since October of 2018. "One more week!" the actor declared on Instagram. "Man, this has been fun. So grateful to have returned over the past year to the place where it all started for me, almost two decades ago. This show, and everyone associated with it, both in front of and behind the camera, will always be very special to me.
"My most sincere and heartfelt appreciation to the powers that be at DAYS and NBC," he continued. "And of course, to all of you, the fans, for your unbridled love and enthusiasm. You remind me every single day of why I truly love what I do. Farewell, and thank you."
Lowder got his big break on DAYS when he played Brady Black from 2000-05. Following that, he joined the cast of CBS sudser THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL in 2007 as a recast Rick Forrester and remained there until 2011.
