Galen Gering Previews DAYS 50th Secret Cast Member: "I Saw Someone In The Hall & Went 'Whoa'!" Kristian Alfonso Adds: "I Wish We Could Tell You Because We're Bursting!"

Last week at the NBC TCA Summer Press Tour, Days of our Lives stars, Galen Gering (Rafe), Kristian Alfonso (Hope) and Stephen Nichols (Steve) interviewed with the press.

During a video interview with Android TV, this very popular DAYS trio bantered about the series upcoming 50th anniversary, the writing, and the big returns slated.

Gering shared: “Right now as we go into our 50th, everything is peaking. As actors, you love when the writing you have for your character reflects who you think your character is and, at times, that’s now always the case. It is now.”

However, the interview got a bit juicy when the trio was speaking about all of the big returns such as Peter Reckell (Bo), Tamara Braun (Av) and Martha Madison (Belle) for starters.  They were also asked if anyone new was coming, and while they related there are now several new younger generation actors, Gering teased: “I saw someone in the hall, as I was saying the other day, and went ‘Whoa’!” To which Nichols added: “We can’t say who it is!”  Kristian Alfonso then shared her excitement on the person: “We can’t say.  I wish we could, because we are bursting to tell you!”

So who could it be that Galen, Kristian, and Stephen are keeping tight-lipped about?  Do you think it’s someone from the past?  Could it be a big name actor joining the show in a new role?  Since DAYS tapes six months ahead, this person most likely wouldn’t be on the NBC soap till sometime next year! Share your theories in the comment section below after checking out the interview!

Matthew Ashford, Matthew Ashford, Matthew Ashford, fingers crossed 😀

That return-from-the-dead would be soooooooooooo welcomed…the could explain the last Jack was an imposter…like ive said before, Jack and Jennifer should be this generations answer to Tom and Alice!!!

That would be awesome! He has always been one of my favorites!

That was the first thing I thought of—it’s time to bring Jack back so Jennifer can get a new story.

I would love it if they were to bring Jack back. But is Matthew Ashford even willing?

Jen said she wouldn’t join DAYS, and John I believe even said he wouldn’t want her joining, either.

Maybe not as a regular but she might agree to a guest stint…she couldve changed her mind and agreed but i still hope its M.A.(Jack) returning and thats whom they are refering to…

Jeremy

that is brilliant, Jimh. She would fit the age requirement, and it’s about time that Jen makes her DAYS debut. That would be awesome.
I think she could definitely fit the bill for the Summer character.

Chandler Massey returning as Will.

James McDonald

Now that would be a welcomed sight to have Chandler Massey return. But I don’t think that will happen. I think he wanted to go to college in real life.

I hope with Peter Reckell not being with them doesn’t mean he’s already off the show and killed off.

I actually had a thought today watching August 17 episode, someone was watching Hope and Aiden, could it be Bo? My one-minute thought was…could Bo be the killer?

Okay, Okay, quit throwing tomatoes at me.

I continue to love hearing the praise that the new regime with Josh Griffith and Dena Higley have infused back into the Days of Our Lives area. As for the person they’re bursting to say, I can only imagine who it is. My only hope is that it is not Matthew Ashford (Jack), his time has come and gone on multiple occasions, plus, he’s far from being the best Jack the series has had. I kind of hope it’s a Horton that’s come back.

I’d like to see it be Matthew Ashford, if not my REAL WISH who I won’t name here for fear or TROLL ATTACKS!!!

“…“Right now as we go into our 50th, everything is peaking. As actors, you love when the writing you have for your character reflects who you think your character is and, at times, that’s now always the case. It is now. ”

here, here

“Dena Higley” Please return well

I don’t know… I feel a little down… and that has to do with Michael Easton…the writing sucked

I believe even Galen Gerring’ would know when the writing for his character is melding with the actor… and it’s a two gun salute.. when, all the canvas is ON, all cylinder

as for the big surprise… i’m with all the fans… I’d LOVE to see Matthew Ashford, back. altho, I simply LOVE Jamie Lyn Bauer… as Jenn’ Mom… Laura Horton.

If I ever see Louise Sorel grace our screens again… i’d be near heaven.

Freddie Smith: take care… or, should I say… hope you enjoyed your time off…. I truly hope the rumors are true .. and that you are back. I have to put it out their…. If any character dies… legacy or not.. it had better be Guy Wilson… and not Peter Reckell.

APB: it’s been said… (written) that the “premiere” of nuDAYS of OUR Lives is orbitting August, 20, 2015… that’s 3 – THREE – DAYS from NOW

excitement is generating

Salem’ites prevail

FAN SALUTE !!!!

” …everything is peaking ”

time to celebrate

While Jack Deveraux is dead, there’s no reason why Matthew Ashford couldn’t come back in somebody’s dream or hallucination.

Yes- Wayne Northrop was my guess. Tony Geary was my wish, but I know that will never happen.

James McDonald

Patti, that would be so wonderful. You know Wayne Northrup did return in 2006 as Dr. Alex North.
I had an idea written on here before that Wayne Northrup should return as Roman and Josh Taylor could turn face as his original character Chris Kositchek for the 50th Anniversary.
I would love for Wayne Northrup to return.

I’m wondering if it’s Mackenzie Westmore(Sheridan) or Eva Tamargo Lemas from Passions….Galen said he was surprised to see this person, they said they couldn’t tell anyone who it was, they didn’t say the person was a past DOOL cast member.

Jim

Thinking outside the box, could this new cast member be the legendary Susan Lucci? Why hasn’t any soap tried getting the queen of daytime??

would love to see Matthew Ashford back in Salem and hopefully, we won’t have to wait the requisite 5 months!!

My prediction is that Frankie Brady will be back. Billy Warlock is sexy and a wonderful actor.

Patrick

OK…

Melissa Reeves was at the right place at the right time

she should thank her career and longevity to Matthew Ashford.

and all the days production teams… that she was knighted a Horton

double sigh!

since she’s such a “legacy” character and from a legacy “family”… (Horton, Brady, Kiriakis, DiMera)

she maintain’ a part of the canvas

double sigh!

since they seem to be building around her character… bring back Matthew Ashford to make her bearable

or, her mother, Jamie Lyn Bauer… as Laura Horton… or… !!! as JimH has stated … Susan Flannery… would shake the epicenter of all that is DAYS… i’d wet myself

I can’t imagine who this big surprise or reveal will be…

there certainly are a lot of loose ends to characters who need familiar characters to layer themselves and MOVE

ie: Nicole ! what a dud she’s become! I’M OVER !!!! Nicole with Eric, Daniel, and Brady… what’s so wrong with making Fay alive ?

ie: Jennifer.. she’s a proven dud with her children and as a lackluster Horton… why not bring back her mother? be it Jamie Lynn Bauer or Susan Flannery?

ie: Hope! SO SORRY to see Aiden leaving the show… if Peter Reckell as Bo.. is not contract? is the magic with Rafe that obvious? I don’t think so.. otherwise they’d have tried that long ago.. even before Aiden came on like gangbusters… please beyond please… do not “SORAS” Cierra

Eve : even Theresa… bring back their mother, Kimberly… with Shane recurring.. to bring these two hot tamales… LIFE… stirring the pot… causing mayhem… with every palpable emotion : I still say these two… could take over Salem… FIND EVE A SUITABLE MAN… hint hint.. Justin Kiriakis

Theresa: say what one will… Theresa is a viable character… with writing that sucks… her presence still caused emotion…

have to get to bed

Xander caused so much mayhem… all the hottie in the world is caused by his presence alone in Salem… what a wasted chacter… FANtastic Actor

wish listing

with all the goings on of rebuilding … the Horton and Brady clan

why not flesh out the DiMera Dynasty

I would be forever indebted to the soap gods

Days is owned by Sony pictures, which is the same company that fired Muhney from his last job, so he’s not likely to be hired there.

And Stefano has enough kids (though admittedly most of them are here in Hell now. Except Benji. He never activated the evil genetics to guarantee him real estate down here.)

Jack Deveraux is NOT in Hell. And while I’m sure that Alice Horton would have baked several dozen donuts to lobby my Former Employer to let him into Heaven, my contacts “upstairs” tell me that Jack isn’t up there either. So expect him back eventually, mortals.

Admittedly though, Duke & Harper were disappointed that their son never joined them down here. Maybe when Jack is back in Salem, I’ll let those two go up to Earth for the occasional visit, like I used to do back in the 1990s.

Or I could always possess Marlena again. That was kinda fun…..

I do not want Francois or Frankie Brady back in the show again he such hypocrite and loser if he goes back to Jennifer again I mean she has not thought about him at all since she reunited with Jack in 2006. Frankie hope he moved on to someone else but if he wants to lapdog for her then he welcome to it and let Jack come back devious and hot and new women for him and let Jennifer play jealous ex-wife.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Stefan is Brain-Dead After Getting In Lani’s Line Of Fire

If you caught last Friday’s Days of our Lives, and as we head into a new and dramatic-filled week ahead in Salem, after jumping in front of a bullet meant for Vivian (Robin Strasser), Stefan (Brandon Barash) has been shot badly – he has a gun shot wound to the neck through the carotid artery.

Lani (Sal Stowers), who fired the shot in an effort to stop and take down Vivian for her crimes against Kate (Lauren Koslow), et al, now finds herself in very, very hot water, and none more so than with Stefan’s wife, Gabi (Camila Banus).

In the waiting area, Gabi shows up and confronts Lani. However, Lani and Abe (James Reynolds) try to explain it was an accident.  Gabi reminds him of how he felt after Theo was shot.  As Gabi runs off to see Stefan, Lani cries, “What if he dies?”

When Gabi arrives in the trauma room, she is told by Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and team that they worked on Stefan for over 20 minutes but he is brain-dead. Vivian, who alerted Gabi to what happened, and showed up at the hospital incognito in her scrubs to check up on the fate of her son, is trying to make her escape plan from Salem

Meanwhile, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) is MIA from her hospital room as she and Doug (Bill Hayes) go to Doug’s Place.  She wants to breathe her last breath there, and wants one last night with her beloved husband.  Julie asks Doug, if she has been a good wife to him, knowing the end is near. After reminiscing of their past and flashbacks, and Julie wanting to have one last dance, she passes out

Photo: JPI

Next, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Eli (Lamon Archey) arrive at Doug’s Place and find Doug crying.  They tells him that they need to  get Julie back to the hospital but Doug says it’s too late. Everyone is heartbroken.

So, what have you thoughts of the twist? Stefan brain-dead? Gabi on the warpath? Julie’s plight and its toll on Doug? How do you think this will all play itself out? Could Stefan come back to life as others have via Dr. Rolf? Share your thoughts below.
