DOOL Spoilers – Stephen Nichols Talks About Storyline
The actor discussed his initial reaction to finding out he would have to play Stefano when he came back to the show.
“WTF?!! Then my brain went immediately into hyperdrive considering how in the world I was going to do it.”
Nichols admitted that it was a daunting task and he didn’t want to do a cheap imitation of Stefano. He watched video after video of Stefano in every scenario. He tried to get playing Stefano down to a science. This includes how Stefano carried his body, gestures and everything in between.
“The only times Steve was even remotely present were moments when he is with Kayla [Brady, Mary Beth Evans] and he is not conscious of it, but a psychic, spiritual connection is there.”
