As daytime fans, we all know some universal truths: People talk to themselves all the time, a regrettable one-night stand will almost always result in a pregnancy, and the gardener is never just a gardener. So when Wes Ramsey makes his "Days of our Lives" debut as Owen, the Kiriakis gardener, we know we won't be the only ones watching him closely.
Not that we weren't already going to be watching him closely anyway. When we reported on Wes's casting back in March, we recalled previous performances of his on "Guiding Light" and in films like "Latter Days." So we've had our eyes on him.
But no matter what Owen the Mystery Gardener is up to -- and we hear he's working with EJ, which can't be good news for Team Kiriakis -- it'll also have something to do with his father, Walter Kent. And Walter will be played by Gordon Thomson, aka Adam Carrington from "Dynasty"! (Looks like we'll have to update our "Dynasty" Where Are They Now? Slideshow.)
Wes debuts as Owen in early May, while his onscreen dad shows up on May 18th.
Do you think Victor will fall for the old fake-gardener bit?
