Johnsons character, Philip, was surprisingly beloved by fans. His spoiled rich kid persona didn't deter fans from flooding Johnson with love letters and marriage proposals. Philip's relationship with Chloe ("Phloe") was a big hit, but their love was foiled when Brady Black interfered. In 2002, Johnson left DAYS, and Many of his fans went with him. He never ruled out the possibility of returning to DAYS, which he did after four years. In 2006, Philip returned a new man (with a new face) determined to get his daughter back. He lost his leg. He got his face blown off. His daughter as taken from him. Viewers loved this Philip (Jay) is the only one who can play Philip this well. The fans of Jay and Philip have gotten use the new, angry Philip, after a 5 year absence, Johnson returned to Days of our Lives as Philip Kiriakis. many Fans Cheered Our Philip was back the one we Loved so Much. Now there are rumblings of Jay no longer being on days. Many hope this not to be true Please Save Jay and By Doing so You May be Saving Days for Many of Jays fans.
