Fangirl is about a woman named Mercy who, while in a pivotal point in her life, decides to travel to her first soap opera fan event to meet her favorite actor, played by Berris.  The dark comedy takes place over 24 hours, mirroring what happens at a real fan event, including those VIP dinners, cocktail parties and more.

Joining the cast of Fangirl are two daytime drama notables! Two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex-Kristen/Susan, DAYS) who will be taking on the role of Katherine Close.  According to the character description: “Katherine is the queen of daytime, beloved by fans.  She’s elegant, soulful, and whip smart. And she’s not afraid to put her fellow cast mates in their place.”

In addition, Galen Gering (Rafe, DAYS) will be playing the role of Ethan Cruz Jr.   He is said to be an “extremely popular actor on a soap opera. Even though he has a sordid past, Ethan has an ease with his role in daytime that contrasts Blake’s anxious relationship to the show and whether he should stay on it.  Ethan attends the after hours VIP party where things get wild.”

Eileen and Galen join another former DAYS favorite, Shawn Christian (Ex-Daniel) as part of the dark comedy.   Christian is playing the role of Victor Darling.  And, Victor is “the big draw at the event and has an ego to match. Victor has no problem using his clout to seduce certain fans.”
