NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ (DOOL) spoilers finds that star Eric Martsolf says that while his character Brady Black seems to be in a much better place these days, it wasn’t always this way. In fact, the actor recently reflected on his character and his past drug addictions. Here’s what he has to say!
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, the handsome actor says that Kristen DiMera’s exit, followed by the wedding debacle, was something that kicked off Brady’s drug addiction. In some ways, he says that was the straw the broke the camel’s back as far as Brady’s sobriety was concerned. Eric puts it this way to the publication, “When I was told that he was an ex-addict, that he had gone on a cocaine binge while in Italy, it was appealing to me. It was very exciting to play someone with issues and deep-rooted problems that could resurface at anytime. When Brady started drinking and abusing drugs, I was excited. Playing an addict allows you to do anything. You can make no wrong choices, because your behavior is erratic and unpredictable.”

The actor also says there was one powerful moment that stood out from the rest during that time period. Eric recalls, “The intervention, when Brady was finally confronted by Eric, Daniel and Nicole about his addiction. I knew everything I had into that. I knew it was a very special moment, the way it was written, the way it was constructed. It was the most explosive I’d ever seen Brady Black be. I was so excited to perform those scenes. Thank god they came off well. I was proud of them.”
