Cody Longo passed away at the age of 34. The anti-vaxxers will blame this (like any other death) on the Covid vaccine. Anti-vaxxers are human scum.

In Days of Our Lives, Cody Longo played Nicholas “Nikki” Alamain.
Longo has played a variety of roles in film and television over the years. Since 2011, he is most recognized for his role as Nicholas “Nikki” Alamain on Days of Our Lives. Nikki goes to Salem in 1999 to be with her Aunt Vivian, who had faked her death to get revenge on Stefano DiMera. Alamain fell in love with Kate Roberts while tutoring her, but she was not ready for a long-term relationship. Nikki admired Vivian and his cousin Lawrence, and he became close to Bo Brady’s son, Shawn Douglas Brady. Nikki watched Vivian argue with Lisanne Gardner, who died after Nikki pushed her. In 1993, he found out that Carly Manning was his mother, and he tried to separate Carly and Bo.
Carly overheard Vivian talking to Nikki in 2011, and when she questioned him, he stated that he didn’t want to talk to her because she was his father’s killer. When Nikki came to Salem and was introduced to his half-sister Melanie Jonas, he apologized to Carly. More than 14,000 episodes of Days of Our Lives have aired on NBC and Peacock. The program first aired on November 8, 1965.
