Salem is about to welcome a very important transplant from Port Charles.

EW has learned exclusively that Tyler Christopher, who played Nikolas Cassadine on General Hospital, has joined Days of Our Lives.

NBC won’t reveal any details of Christopher’s role, other than confirming that he began filming last week in Los Angeles. Fans aren’t likely to see him on the sudser until later this year, if not the first of 2018.

He left GH last year.
