Porte has also starred in various Hallmark and Lifetime original movies.
Following his debut in DAYS: BS, the TV star was asked back for the show’s 58th season.
“I thought they were throwing me in for another episode and then they offered the contract and I was shocked,” Porte told Soap Opera Digest.
“I always wanted to come back because I think it is the closest to live theater that we have on this coast, and that’s where I got my start.
“I was shocked and so excited. I’m very excited for the viewers just to see how many twists the storyline of Dimitri von Leuschner goes through in a very short amount of time.
“The speed at which you are thrust into the pool and expected to perform is intoxicating and it’s nerve-racking.
“Without giving away too much, I will say this…I was walking into this clueless because there’s a hard pivot and we introduced who this character really is for three pages of dialogue.”
