Stefano DiMera is a fictional character, a villain on the American soap opera Days of our Lives. Created by head writer Pat Falken Smith, he is portrayed by Joseph Mascolo.[2] Stefano is the father of Renée DuMonde, Megan Hathaway, Benjy Hawk, Lexie Carver (née Brooks), EJ DiMera and Chad DiMera and the stepfather of Antony DiMera; He also raised Peter and Kristen Blake. He had a nephew, André DiMera, who through plastic surgery became identical in appearance to Antony. Stefano is the current husband of Kate Roberts. He is also the ex-husband of Vivian Alamain. Stefano and longtime rival John Black were revealed to be half-brothers after it was discovered that Stefano's father Santo DiMera also fathered John. Stefano first entered the show as an organized crime kingpin. Soap Opera Digest named him the all time best villain.[3]

Casting and development

In the early 80s, then head writer, Pat Falken Smith created the role specifically for Mascolo after seeing his performance as real life crime boss, Salvatore Maranzano on the NBC miniseries, The Gangster Chronicles in 1981.[4] Mascolo first appeared as Stefano in 1982. He departed from the series in March 1983, and returned a year later only to depart again in February 1985.[1] Mascolo briefly returned to the series from November to December 1988.[1] Actor Frank Fata appeared in the role of Stefano for two episodes in December 1991.[5] Mascolo reclaimed the role on a contractual basis on September 17, 1993. He departed from the show in December 1996, and re-appeared in February 1997 for a few episodes.[6] Mascolo returned to the show full time once again on June 13, 1997.

Controversial 2001 exit

In late February 2001, a post on Mascolo's official website revealed that contract negotiations were not going well and Mascolo was expected to last appear in May. However, a representative of Mascolo's took to the website to deny the reports.[7] In April 2001, rumors of Mascolo's exit due to failed contract negotiations began to surface once again and the producers were apparently considering recasting the role.[5] Days later, Mascolo was spotted at CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful; despite the reports, neither Mascolo, NBC or CBS would comment on the rumors.[8] In May 2001, Mascolo took to his website to confirm the news:[9]

My contract is up in May and I tried to negotiate in good faith... Usually, one expects some give and take but the powers that be are adamant. They now feel that the character of Stefano should take a rest - as if Stefano ever rests.

Though Mascolo seemed disappointed with the show's decision to write the character out briefly, executive producer Ken Corday revealed plans to bring the character back by the fall of 2001 whether Mascolo was available or not.[9] Mascolo made his last official appearance on June 14, 2001.[10] Though Mascolo initially denied the reports, he did indeed debut in the role of Massimo Marone on The Bold and the Beautiful in August 2001.[11]

2006 Return and storyline dictated exit

In the fall of 2006, following Mascolo's exit from B&B due to lack of storyline, reports began to surface the Mascolo would reprise his role as Stefano. The series' producers later confirmed plans to revive the DiMera family in order to stop a decline in ratings.[12] A deathly ill, comatose Stefano began appearing on December 19, 2006. Though some sources list Mascolo in the cast credits for the episodes, neither Mascolo or NBC have ever stated that he portrayed comatose Stefano.[13] It was later confirmed that Mascolo would reappear in the role officially on 2007, along with costars, Thaao Penghlis (Tony DiMera) and Leann Hunley (Anna DiMera).[14] Mascolo made his first official appearance as Stefano on June 6, 2007.[12] However the stint proved to be short lived with Mascolo last appearing on February 29, 2008 and the character of Stefano was written out to allow the writers to come up with more story for him. In May 2008, the tabloid, Globe confirmed that Mascolo had been fired and Stefano was written into another coma. This decision did not sit well with Mascolo who gave a heated interview to Soap Opera Digest accusing the executives of "double crossing" him.[15][16]

08' Return and brief 2012 departure

In the summer of 2008, it was confirmed that Mascolo would once again reprise his role as Stefano in August 2008. Mascolo later revealed in an interview that his initial anger was fueled by emotion following the death of his father. Following his initial ousting, fans took to his website to express how much they missed the character. The fan fervor allowed for Mascolo's return upon a mutual agreement with executive producer, Ken Corday. Mascolo reappeared on August 5, 2008 just before Days took its annual hiatus for the Summer Olympics.[16] In 2012, after breaking up the character's marriage to Lauren Koslow's Kate Roberts, making him responsible for his own daughter, Lexie Carver, played by Renée Jones's death and undoing his father/son relationship with James Scott's EJ DiMera, the character appeared to have been written into a corner. With nearly the entire town gunning for Stefano, several sources later confirmed that Stefano was indeed being killed off with Mascolo last appearing alive on June 4, 2012.[17] Mascolo discussed his disapproval in an interview with Soap Opera Digest:[18]

Every single thing that went wrong in Salem was Stefano’s fault. Every single thing. He got blamed for everything. When Stefano got blamed for this business with Lexie illness, I got very angry. Stefano and his daughter had an absolutely pure relationship. I adore Renee Jones (Lexie). When she came to my dressing room and said, “I’m going to be leaving soon, and this is what is going to happen,” I said, “Oh, no!"[19]

It was very difficult. The bottom line Stefano is will always be about family. So when they wrote that, I couldn’t figure it out. In all honesty, Stefano nor EJ would have had wanted it that way. As a matter of fact when James Scott (EJ) saw the business that Elvis wasn’t Stefano’s son, we both went, “No, that’s wrong.” We didn’t want it that way.[19]

On June 13, 2012, Mascolo goes off screen following the character's funeral. Despite what was going on screen, certain sources reported that Mascolo could possibly reprise his role very soon.[19] Following the change in head writers it was confirmed that Mascolo was indeed on his way back and made his first appearance on August 21, 2012. Mascolo discussed that the plan was always to have Stefano turn out to be alive, but he didn't agree with how the previous writing regime had scripted the story. With the return of former show runners, Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell, Mascolo seemed more "intrigued" with their plans for his character. Mascolo's return also coincides with Eileen Davidson's return as Stefano's daughter, Kristen Blake[20] Mascolo reappeared as Stefano on October 8, 2012.[21]

Storylines

1980s

Stefano first appears on-screen in January 1982 with his son Tony surveying the citizens of Salem. Stefano travels to Salem shortly after being introduced as the friend of Lee DuMonde and it is soon revealed he is the father of Lee's daughter, Renée which adds complications to her relationship Tony.[22] Stefano attempts to help Tony win back his wife, Liz Chandler while Stuart Whyland begins blackmailing him and Stefano kills him. In 1983, Stefano is sent to prison thanks to Detective Roman Brady. Before his death, Stefano's wife, Daphne reveals that Tony isn't his biological son. Stefano returns in 1984 with his nephew, André who has gotten plastic surgery to look like Tony. Together they plan to frame Roman for a string of murders and while Stefano discovers another daughter, Megan Hathaway. Her adoptive father, Maxwell had access to the "Three Prisms" that could cure Stefano's brain tumor. In November 1984, in his quest to obtain one of the prisms, Stefano apparently kills Roman after pushing him off a cliff.[22] In February 1985, Bo Brady's wife Hope is framed for Megan's murder and Stefano vows revenge on the entire family. He kidnaps Roman's twins, Sami and Eric and Roman's widow Dr. Marlena Evans shoots him apparently killing. Stefano resurfaces in 1988 to claim his son Benjy who is about to be adopted by Kayla Brady and her husband Steve Johnson. He traps several of Salem's citizens on his island but his plans for revenge are foiled and he escapes.[23]

1990s

In December 1991, John Black and Roman Brady discover Stefano in a Mayan pyramid in Mexico. The pyramid collapses and Stefano is once again believed to have perished. Though he survives the collapse, his brain tumor is slowly killing him. Stefano returns to Salem in 1993 and he is taken hostage by Curtis Reed in his weakened state; Curtis's attempt to extort money from Stefano's adopted daughter, Kristen Blake is foiled after Stefano kills him.[23] He then convinces Tony and Kristen to marry but the marriage is runined when Stefano is revealed as the murderer. In an attempt to avoid capture, Stefano speeds away as John shoots out his tires and his car explodes. Stefano retreats to his New Orleans estate, Maison Blanche where he kidnaps Marlena and John. After the mansion burns down, Stefano buys a penthouse in Salem, next door to Marlena.[22] Stefano sneaks into her apartment every night and opens her soul leading to Marlena becoming possessed by a demon. Under possession, Marlena pushes Stefano out of a window; after the demon is exercised, a guilt ridden Marlena helps Stefano recover. In December 1995, Tony fakes his death and frames John.[22] Stefano is later struck by lightning and becomes so obsessed with Marlena that he bribes the judge presiding over John's murder trial to issue the death penalty. In August 1996 Stefano's plans to frame John are soon revealed and he skips town with Marlena to Paris where he is shot by his former lover, Rachel Blake. Later, his longtime confidant, Celeste Perrault reveals that he fathered her daughter, Dr. Lexie Carver the wife of Salem's police commissioner. Stefano brings Kristen's look-a-like, Susan Banks to town, impregnates her and plans to pass the baby off as Kristen's baby, which she actually miscarried; Susan gives birth in February 1997 to Elvis and flees after discovering Stefano's plan.[23] After recovering from a heart attack in 1998, Stefano marries Vivian Alamain, and plots to kill her to get back all of his belongings left to Vivian by her late husband and Stefano's employee, Jonesy Jones.[24] In 1999, Stefano brainwashes Hope Brady into thinking she is Princess Gina Von Amberg and Gina now in love with John, kidnaps him; feeling betrayed, Stefano exiles her to Paris.[25]

2000s

In early 2000, the Brady's rescue Hope from Paris. Hope learns she is pregnant and Stefano believes he is the father. Stefano convinces Lexie to adopt a child, and then switches Hope's son with another, leaving the child with Lexie and Abe.[26] In 2001, the truth about the baby switch is revealed and Stefano skips town in June 2001.[27]

In 2006, an ill Stefano sends little Elvis, now known as EJ to impregnate Sami Brady so they can use the fetus's stem cells. After they steal John's kidney, Stefano proposes that Sami and EJ marry and raise the child together so they can end the feud between the families.[28] In 2008, the origins of the feud are finally revealed and John Black is revealed to be Stefano's paternal half-brother, the son of Santo DiMera and Colleen Brady. Stefano had once again erased John's memory in an attempt to turn him to the Pawn again. In 2009 Stefano agrees to help EJ's wife, Nicole hide the fact that she switched another baby with Sami's at birth. EJ is furious when he learns the truth and he kidnaps his daughter, Sydney and fakes her death, leaving everyone devastated, including Stefano. Stefano learns from Anna DiMera that EJ paid her to care for Sydney while everyone believed she was dead; he uses the information to rebuild his relationship with EJ.[28] In September 2009, Stefano marries Kate Roberts after helping her get out from under attempted murder charges.[29]

2010s

In 2010, Madeline Peterson Woods returns to Salem and after she dies, it is revealed that her son, Chad was actually fathered by Stefano, and Madeline convinced Kate to keep the secret.[28] In 2011, Stefano helps EJ kidnap Sami's husband, Rafe Hernandez and keep him in the DiMera basement while putting a look-a-like in his place.[28] In 2012, the DiMera empire begins to crumble when Stefano learns EJ isn't really his son and Lexie is diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor thanks to toxic gases she was exposed to when Stefano had André kidnap her. Meanwhile, Kate has an affair with a man from her past, Ian McAllister and Stefano files for divorce, taking everything from her. Stefano also turns John and Hope back into the Pawn and Princess Gina after revealing they are married; he forces them to retrieve a precious coin from Alamainia for him. Several other schemes continue to backfire on Stefano including his attempt to sabotage EJ's mayoral campaign and him blackmailing Will Horton. Having angered many of his enemies, Stefano is shot and presumably killed in early June 2012. Suspicion for the murder quickly falls upon EJ, who continuously professes his innocence, but no one, save for Will or Sami, seem to believe him. After a series of explosions rock Salem in early August 2012, EJ flees with Sami in tow, and is subsequently abducted by Ian McAllister, who professes that he framed EJ for Stefano's "murder". Ian then pulls back a curtain, revealing a very much alive Stefano, who is unconscious, bound in a chair and wearing a mask. Ian also confesses to falsifying Alice's letter, as well as the blood test that stated EJ wasn't Stefano's son.
