“Days of Our Lives” actor Peter Reckell recently spoke out on allegations which arose about a toxic work environment on the popular soap opera’s set, referring to them as both “disturbing” and “shocking.” In responding to these claims, Reckell took the opportunity to express appreciation for the positive and inclusive atmosphere that fostered a culture of “respect, love and trust” during his time on the show.
Reckell, who portrayed Bo Brady on “Days of Our Lives” for over three decades, tweeted his reaction to the accusations. He was surprised and took the allegations seriously, saying: “These stories are so disturbing and shocking to me. The time I spent at Days created a foundation of respect, love and trust that still exists today. It’s sad that this may not be the case now.”
