Thought Bryan Dattilo (Lucas) Admits He Burned A Lot Of Bridges When He Left 'Days' in 2009!

Days of Our Lives fans wondering why popular actor Bryan Dattilo was let go in 2009, now have answers. TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan spoke with the actor, who admitted his behind the scene antics led to his dismissal.

TV Guide Magazine: There was buzz that your ouster from Days in 2009 was due to un-professional behavior. What's the truth?

Dattilo: I was definitely sending out the message I didn't care. I was burned out and not giving my all. I felt the development of my character wasn't going anywhere. I was cracking a lot of jokes. It all came off like I was mocking the show and the work everyone was doing. It was just my insecure way of handling the pressure but it was stupid of me to burn a bridge like that, with a show that's done so much for me, a show that's been my life. It was just the dumbest, most egotistical thing. And I really regret it. I want to prove I can make the most of this second chance.

Dattilo goes on to reveal how, during the event for Days' 45th anniversary, he showed himself off with former co-stars.

TV Guide Magazine: Your appearance at the Days 45th anniversary panel event at the TV Academy sure didn't help.

Dattilo: No, it didn't. Days was very nice to invite me even though I was no longer on the show but I showed up feeling pretty bitter. I said some things to cast members I shouldn't have. My attitude really rubbed people the wrong way, and I didn't represent the show properly, either. The next day I was so disappointed in myself. I was like, "Why did I do that? Why did I flick James Scott's ear? Why did I make fun of Ari Zucker's name? Why did I have that glass of wine before I went?" It was horrible.

Hmm...Getting fired really does humble a person.
