EXCLUSIVE: Blake Berris Talks Meth Head, House of Last Things and Springing Nick Fallon From Jail on Days of Our LivesBy Jamey Giddens on August 26, 2012
Longtime Daytime Confidential readers will likely remember I wasn't very happy when Blake Berris was let go from Days of Our Lives back in 2009. Imagine my pleasant surprise when news broke that the amazingly-talented actor was bringing lovable geek-turned-murderer Nick Fallon back to the series!
I recently caught up with Berris—who has been making a name for himself on the indie film circuit—to talk about what brought him back to soaps and his upcoming turns in buzzy films like Meth Head and House of Last Things. Berris also previewed the storyline which finds Nick's cousin Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) organizing the Horton family effort to get him paroled. How will Melanie (Molly Burnett) react to Nick getting out? Will the plot twist have anything to do with Burnett's exit from the series? Keep reading to find out.
Daytime Confidential: Welcome back to Salem! I know you've been really busy doing a lot of edgy, indie projects lately, like Meth Head and House of Last Things. What made you decide to return to Days of Our Lives?
Blake Berris: They basically gave me a really great offer. What they wanted to do with the character sounded like a really awesome storyline, so I kind of just decided to do it.

Former Days of Our Lives scene stealer Blake Berris (ex-Nick Fallon) is generating a lot of buzz for his gritty turn as Dusty, a seductive druggie who turns Luckas Haas' lead character Kyle onto crystal meth in the indie flick Meth Head. The film, from first time writer/director Jane Clark, centers on Kyle, a mild-mannered accountant, who turns to drugs to deal with the self-loathing he feels over being in a dead end job, having a lover (Wison Cruz) who's more successful than he is and a father who doesn't accept him.
