Long-time fans of Days of our Lives may have to do a double take later this summer. Veteran soap opera actor Wayne Northrop will be returning to the show in August - but this time around he will not be reprising his previous DAYS role. Fans may remember that the actor played Roman Brady.

Northrop will tackle the newly created role of psychiatrist Dr. Alex North. Some fans, however, are wondering if Northrop's role will ultimately be revealed to somehow be the "real" Roman Brady.

Northrop originated the role of Roman in 1981 and remained with the show for the next three years. The actor returned in 1991 before again departing in 1994. In 1998, actor Josh Taylor took over the role.

In addition to his work on Days of our Lives, Northrop also starred on ABC's Port Charles, where he appeared opposite real-life wife Lynn Herring (Lucy Coe). Other television credits include Dynasty's Michael Culhane.

Northrop is the third performer in recent years to reappear on DAYS in a new role. Judi Evans portrayed Adrienne Johnson Kiriakis from 1987-1991 and returned in 2003 as Bonnie Lockhart. Josh Taylor portrayed Chris Kositchek from 1977 to 1987 and, as previously mentioned, took over the role of Roman Brady in 1998.

Northrop debuts - or rather returns - to DAYS on August 1st.
