Days of our Lives' Drake Hogestyn (John Black) returned to work in September after an on-set accident back in May left him injured and unable to work. For fans wondering how the incident may have affected his health, have no fear: his longtime costar Deidre Hall (Marlena Evans) says he's fully recovered and in top-notch condition.
“It's one of our own coming home,” she told Soap Opera Digest of Hogestyn returning to the set. “He looks good, he looks rested and he's in terrific shape.”
In a statement made back in July, lawyers for Hogestyn claimed he was injured on set while filming a stunt that required him to “break” through a prop door that had not been “properly prepared.” The popular actor reportedly “smashed headfirst” into the door and suffered “severe head injuries.” He was quickly hospitalized after the accident and spent several months recovering.
