Days Of Our Lives – Mark Colson Joined DOOK Back In The Mid-1990s
Fans may recall that Colson played the role of Archangel Gabriel back in the mid-1990s for about nine episodes. He was John Black’s (Drake Hogestyn) guardian angel. His character was a hit at the time when he dealt with Diedre Hall’s character, Marlena Evans, who was possessed by the devil.
The original story ran from 1994 to 1995. Back then, Marlena fell under the devil’s spell. Her scene where she levitated off of her bed was described by Entertainment Weekly as “one of the most memorable moments in American pop culture history.”
Now, 25 years later since his alter ego was seen, Archangel Gabriel returns to face off with the demonic forces that are inhabiting Marlena once again. She’s fallen under Satan’s control and has the ability to alter her shape and form.
In his most recent appearance on Days of Our Lives, he came back as Archangel Gabriel. He appeared as a hiker to Marlena, Ciara Brady Weston (Victoria Konefal) and Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson).
Gabriel, who’s in the guise of a hiker, appeared to devil-possessed Marlena that goodness will prevail. Fans are probably wondering how long Colson will stay in the soap. The actor hinted that he has no clue how it’ll end with his character this time around.
Colson’s other acting credits include Justified, Angel, and Banshee.
