    Mostly known for his role of Stefano DiMera on Days of our Lives. Mascolo died Wednesday December 8 after years of battling Alzheimers. He was 87.

    He also played Massimo Marone on The Bold and the Beautiful between 2001-2006.

    He leaves a wife, kids & grandkids.

    I immediately recognised his name from Jaws 2.

    The majority of his scenes were excised from the final cut when his character's arc as Brody's adversary and Ellen's employer was cut for time. But he still made an impact even with his meagre screen time. It was good to see the rest of his scenes when the film came to DVD in the Noughties.

    I hate to say this, but it's a relief in a way. Now we don't have to worry about Stefano turning up alive again for, literally, almost the 20th time......

    The show turned his character into a cliche.

    So sad, never was a follower or watcher of Days of Our Lives but have seen him in other shows. My Lord we have lost a lot of famous people this year.
