Rex Brady (DiMera) is a fictional character on the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives, portrayed by Eric Winter from 2002-05, and by Kyle Lowder since 2018.

Rex first appeared on July 8, 2002, and left town on July 26, 2005. He is the son of Roman Brady and Kate Roberts and twin brother to Cassie Brady.

In the fall of 2018, Rex returned to Days, now played by Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady). His first air date was October 19, 2018. The character left temporarily to spend time with his newfound child with his ex-girlfriend, Mimi on November 15, 2018. He returned January 11, 2019 on a contract basis.


Rex and his twin sister Cassie were discovered half-naked during a meteor shower and were originally suspected to be aliens. As time went on it was discovered that they were the children of Tony DiMera and Marlena Evans but this turned out to be false.

In reality, a sperm sample was somehow taken from Roman Brady during his years of captivity at the hands of Tony's father Stefano DiMera and combined with eggs taken from Kate Roberts who was a prostitute and associate of Stefano's.

Rex and, to a lesser extent, Cassie seemed to have superhuman intelligence. Rex also suffered mysterious mood swings and psychotic tendencies during the Salem Stalker storyline. He dated Mimi Lockhart but they broke up when Rex discovered Mimi aborted his baby without telling him about it. Feeling hurt and betrayed, Rex left town following the abortion and has not appeared on the show since his departure.

Rex is last mentioned on October 12, 2017, when his mother Kate mentions that Dr. Rolf genetically engineered him and Cassie.

Rex is first seen greeting his father Roman Brady at the Brady Pub. He later catches up with his mother Kate and reveals he is getting married. Kate is taken aback and apprehensive about it. Rex also catches up with Brady Black and half-brother Eric Brady. His fiancée Sarah Horton joins him in town, but Rex soon realizes that Mimi is in town and it is revealed that he and Mimi slept together while he was with Sarah. A curious and heart broken Sarah broke off the engagement and Rex also learned that he was the father of Mimi’s child, Emily Lockhart.

Rex left town to spend time with his daughter, but soon came back to town, wanting a second chance with Sarah.
