Emmy winner Greg Rikaart makes his debut this week as new gay character on ‘Days of Our Lives’

Today is the day Greg Rikaart makes his debut on Days of Our Lives as Leo, a gay man Sonny (Freddie Smith) meets on a dating app. We already know the meeting isn’t random and part of a plot to undermine Sonny’s business. Life was so much simpler when poor Sonny was running a coffee house. Leo is his attempt to move on from ex-husband Will (Chandler Massey) and ex-fiance Paul (Christopher Sean). Whatever Leo’s motives, it is great to have the handsome and talented Rikaart back on television. Last week, Greg received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor. It is his fifth nomination for playing Kevin Fisher on the CBS soap The Young and the Restless. The Young and the Restless. He won in 2005 but this is his first nod for Y&R since 2008 and his first since coming out publicly as a gay man in 2013. The nomination comes after Greg’s contract was not renewed last spring after 14 years on the soap. But he returned to the soap for a two-week stint last fall and he could appear in future episodes.
