Lifestyle - News
Iconic “Days of Our Lives” actor John Aniston, born Yannis Anastassakis, has passed away at age 89. The actor played Victor Kiriakis in the long-running soap opera since 1985 and was most recently in the episode that aired on November 11, the day of his death.
His daughter, Jennifer Aniston, announced his death on Instagram, “Sweet papa ...⁣ John Anthony Aniston. You were one of the most beautiful humans I ever knew. I am so grateful that you went soaring into the heavens in peace — and without pain. And on 11/11 no less! You always had perfect timing. That number will forever hold an even greater meaning for me now.”
The actor was given the Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award earlier this year for his work on “Days of Our Lives.” He was unable to attend the event, but his daughter was there to accept the award on his behalf and praised her father and his long acting career.
