The appearance of Steve and Ava’s presumed-dead son, Tripp, on DAYS OF OUR LIVES has some viewers wondering about the character and his handsome young portrayer, Lucas Adams!
In January of 2016, mafia princess Ava revealed to Steve that she’d had a son with him that was sold onto the black market by her father, Martino Vitali. However, after digging into the boy’s whereabouts, they were told that the child had died of pneumonia. Ava was devastated, and was later was murdered by Steve and Kayla’s son Joey!

A year later, Steve learned that his son had not died, and was, in fact, searching for his birth parents. Steve and Kayla tracked Tripp to a diner in Arizona and brought him back to Salem where they underwent a DNA test that proved Tripp is Steve’s son. Joey was nervous about what might happen if his new half-brother learned he murdered his mom, Ava, so Steve took the blame, saying he’d killed her on ISA orders. But Tripp found that whole story implausible, and as he became drawn into the Vitali family business, began to learn more and more about his mother.
Adams made his debut on DAYS as Tripp on March 23, 2017. Born in Texas, Adams moved to Los Angeles after high school to pursue his dreams of being an actor. He has made appearances in television shows like DEXTER, SUBURGATORY, and GRIMM, but is best known for playing the human vigilante who killed werewolf Alcide in the final season of TRUE BLOOD and for his role as Josh Willcox in the popular Disney Channel series LIV AND MADDIE.
