Philip Kiriakis started stirring up drama on “Days of Our Lives” from his birth. Philip’s mother, Kate Roberts was unable to get pregnant so she and her husband, Victor Kiriakis, had their embryos manufactured by a doctor. However, Kate’s enemy, Vivian Alamain, ended up being implanted with the embryos and eventually gave birth to Philip in hopes of getting close to Victor. Philip became a staple on “DOOL” when the character was in high school. He was a snobby rich kid, who eventually fell for Chloe Lane, a gothic loner who was the subject of bullying at the school (via She Knows Soaps). Once the two began to know each other they fell hard. However, things weren’t easy for the pair.
Chloe falsely accused Philip of rape, and after they settled their differences Philip ended things with Chloe again after nude photos of her appeared on the internet (via Soap Digest). Meanwhile, Philip continued to carry a torch for Chloe, who eventually moved on to Brady Black. Chloe and Brady got married and Philip left Salem to join the military.
