Daphne DiMera is a character from the soap opera Days of Our Lives, portrayed by Madlyn Rhue from 1982 to 1984.
When Daphne learned that Tony was in love with Renee DuMonde, whom he believed to be his half-sister, she told him that he was not Stefano's son after all, but belonged to a man named Enrico. This led to a brief romantic reunion between Tony and Renée, but Renée was soon murdered. Years later, it would be discovered that Tony was actually Stefano's biological son (it was never revealed if Daphne believed he was Enrico's or if she lied). After numerous recons (which included revealing John Black was Tony's half-brother via Daphne and that Tony had been replaced by his surgically altered identical cousin Andre for almost two decades), it was revealed that John was not Daphne's son after all but rather the son of Stefano's father Santo DiMera and Colleen Brady, the sister of Shawn Brady. The real Tony has since commented that Enrico the gardener is his actual father.
Daphne died in 1984 when a plane carrying a number of Stalemates crashed in Haiti.
Daphne's real surname is unknown. She was always referred to as a DiMera, because her marriage was a common law marriage to Stefano. She is the aunt of Lawrence Alamain via her sister, Philomena.
In 2021, it was revealed that Daphne was buried in the DiMera Mausoleum.
