Thaao Penghlis (born December 15, 1945) is an Australian actor. He is best known for roles in the U.S. daytime soap operas such as Days of our Lives, Santa Barbara, and General Hospital, but he has also guest-starred on a number of crime dramas, such as Kojak, Cannon, Tenspeed and Brown Shoe, Hart to Hart, Nero Wolfe, and Magnum, P.I.. Penghlis has studied under Hollywood acting teacher Milton Katselas. Penghlis was born in Sydney, New South Wales of Greek parentage. Penghlis first appeared to daytime audiences in 1981 on General Hospital during the Ice Princess saga when he played the role of Victor Cassadine, brother of Mikkos Cassadine and Anthony Cassadine. After his character was written out the show by being taken to prison, he was cast as the villainous Count Tony DiMera, the son of villain Stefano DiMera in the NBC daytime drama Days of our Lives. He was cast for the role of the Italian character largely for his swarthy complexion, despite his heavy Australian accent, and a real-life age disparity between him and co-star Joseph Mascolo of only 15 years. This eventually became a double-role with producers created the more villainous character of Andre, Tony`s look-alike cousin. The role of Tony was gradually downgraded to a nice-guy role.
Penghlis appeared in the 1980s revival of Mission: Impossible, which was filmed in Australia. Thaao Penghlis` role in the revival was a counterpart to Martin Landau`s "Rollin Hand" and Leonard Nimoy`s the "Amazing Paris". In 2003, Penghlis was nominated for the Soap Opera Digest Award for Favorite Return for his return to the cast of Days of our Lives. He left the show in fall 2005. Penghlis returned to Days on May 24, 2007 to reprise the role of the dastardly Andre DiMera. He also began reprising the role of nice guy Tony DiMera on July 17, 2007. Penghlis was nominated for "Outstanding Leading Actor" at the Daytime Emmy Awards in 2008. In 2009, Penghlis` character was once again written out by having him die.
