Theodore "Theo" Brandon Carver is a fictional character from the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives. He has been played by Kyler Pettis since October 2015, and was previously played by Terrell Ranson Jr from 2008-15. Theo was diagnosed with autism and his condition has caused major concern for Abe and Lexie. This storyline was featured on NBC's
Theo is best friends with Ciara Brady (Vivian Jovanni), and maintained close relationships with his villainous maternal grandfather Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo), and maternal uncles EJ DiMera (James Scott), and Chad DiMera (Billy Flynn). On October 28, 2016, Theo shared his first scene with his former serial killer uncle Andre DiMera (Thaao Penghlis).
In mid 2015, it was a shock for many fans to find out that Terrell Ransom Jr was leaving Days of Our Lives, after playing the role for seven years. This announcement came around the time Laura Boles was also announced to be leaving the soap. Many fans speculated on whether the two would return as SORASed teenagers, and this was confirmed when both Kyler and Vivian Jovanni were announced to be stepping into the roles of Theo and Ciara respectively.
Sadly, Pettis never got a chance to share a scene with his character's onscreen grandfather when Mascalo permanently left the soap a couple of months later, due to his failing health.
In 2015, Theo was hanging out with Joey Johnson at the Bicenteniall, when Joey suddenly collapsed. Theo panicked and got Lani Price to help take Joey to the hospital. Theo was happy to find out that Lani was his sister, but started receiving anonymous texts calling him names. Theo chose to keep it to himself, but Ciara accidentally finds out and enraged. She vows to Theo that she will find out whoever is bullying him, and put a stop to it. Theo, however, doesn't want her to protect him, and says it is no big deal.
Theo was devastated when Stefano was murdered. Theo acknowledged his grandfather was an evil person, but still mourned Stefano since he was always good to Theo. Theo and Ciara got closer after Chase Jennings raped her. He even worked with Joey, and Claire Brady to capture Chase, so Ciara could confront him.
Theo and Ciara became estranged when she developed a crush on his uncle Chad, and he started to get close with Claire. When Abe was shot by Clyde Weston, Theo tried to kill Clyde in revenge, but froze and was disarmed by Clyde. He was saved by the intervention of John Black, and Steve Johnson. Ciara and Theo reconnected and she comforted him as Abe's fate remained uncertain. Theo was furious when Ciara's mom, Hope Brady, was exposed as the one who killed Stefano. He told Ciara he would have forgive Hope, but wanted to remain friends with Ciara. Theo attended Hope's trial with Ciara, and did not join Andre and Chad in testifying against her. Hope got 25 years in prison with no possibility of parole. Chad would later tell Theo that Stefano was suffering from stage 4 colon, and set Hope up to kill him. Theo was angry at Stefano, but when he learned that Stefano was still alive, he wondered if the DiMera's would ever see him again, and Chad told Theo he hopes not.
During the war against the Kiriakis and Hernandez families, Andre told Theo to stay away from Ciara and Claire, but Chad disagreed, and told Theo to just be careful and stay away from Deimos Kirikais. Theo and Claire got closer, and eventually they moved in with Ciara, Jade Michaels, and Joey Johnson. Theo and Claire eventually had sex, and Theo wanted to help Ciara find someone, so he set her up with his classmate, Wyatt.
