Soap veteran Ian Buchanan — who’s had memorable roles on General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and All My Children — comes to NBC on Thursday to play Ian McAllister on Days of Our Lives.

In this exclusive clip, Buchanan shows up as a very shady character from Madison’s (Sarah Brown) past who seems to have a strong hold over her and her company. As time goes by, we’ll also see that McAllister has a mysterious connection to Kate (Lauren Koslow), and that his presence in Salem will have an impact on Brady, Victor and Sonny. Oh my!

This isn’t Buchanan’s first time on the DOOL set. Previously, he performed a cameo as Lord Sheraton back in the late ’90s.

Looking forward to Buchanan’s arrival?
