The character of Dr. Henry Shah on Days Of Our Lives is not actually new to the soap. The doc was introduced back in August of 2017 when he appeared in an episode treating Abigail after she was severely injured in a hit-and-run. The character was played by actor Andre Khabbazi for his sporadic appearances in 2017 and 2018, but when Dr. Shah returned again in September of 2019, actor Piter Marek stepped into the role. Dr. Shah demonstrated his bedside manner when he first appeared. (Photo Credit: XJJohnson/jpistudios.com) Dr. Shah resurfaced in January of 2018 when he took Jennifer Horton out on a date. Unfortunately, he suggested that they eat at Brady’s Pub, and Jen was very uncomfortable when Eric Brady waited on them. Picking up on the signals, Henry asked Jen if there was something between her and Eric, and while she insisted they’re just friends, he could tell that wasn't entirely the case.
