Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Former General Hospital star Tyler Christopher has landed a role on Days of Our Lives, but isn't revealing any details about who he will play.

"I want to thank @nbcdays for welcoming me into their home. Although I can't comment on the character, @carlivatiron has handed me a gem of a story I am eager for you [to] see," the actor tweeted Thursday, referring to Ron Carlivati, the current head writer of Days and former head writer for GH.

Christopher announced last September he would not continue on General Hospital as the beloved character, Prince Nikolas Cassadine, after contract talks with show producers broke down.

Christopher, 44, began playing Nikolas in 1996.

Carlivatiā€ posted a photo of the actor on Twitter Thursday, along with the message: "International Man of Mystery... #whowillhebe #waitandsee #days."
