According to, Michael Mendelsohn, who plays Aniston in the daytime soap, told “Entertainment Tonight” Thursday morning that he was surprised by Aniston’s passing.

When asked whether the actor would be in his final moments on “Days of Our Lives,” Mendelsohn said he wasn’t sure if “he should make that decision,” but admitted that “I don’t know what’s going to happen with the storyline.”

“It has never really been confirmed,” he said.
