Today is a bittersweet day for longtime daytime favorite, Galen Gering.  While on Wednesday; he is celebrating his birthday! (Happy birthday, Galen!), he is also finishing up his last day at Days of our Lives as Rafe Hernandez; a role he has played for the last ten years-plus.

In a heartfelt posting on his Instagram, Galen shared special thanks to all of his fans who watched his during his run in Salem.

Gering expressed: “Thank you all so much for the incredible birthday wishes. I’ve always seen birthdays as a day of reflection, an opportunity to look back at where I’ve been and where I’m going. So, it’s oddly befitting that today also happens to be my last day at Days. Man…I have such great memories from the last 10 years. Onscreen I’ve fought for marriages and fought evil twins. I’ve put people in prison and been imprisoned. And offscreen, I’ve made friendships that I will have for a lifetime. All the while, I’ve been so fortunate to have the love and support of the greatest fans in the world. I hope you know how thankful I am to have had you at my side. With that said, the journey continues and I hope to bring you along for the ride. Thanks for the memories Days of our Lives. Like sands through the hourglass… Love Y’all”

What is going on over there maybe you just might want to fold the doors and call it a wrap end on a high note

Celia

Right, Kay.
How sad!! Love “Rafe”—also heard Smith and Massey are leaving. WOW!! Too bad—love those guys, too…so much!

Well, Celia, just as I considered adding DAYS to my schedule, they go and fire two of my faves (Chandler and Freddie) and Casey M. is leaving on his own. Why bother now? GH is also slowly imploding except for Ava & Nikolas, Nelle’s return, and Lucas looking REALLY HOT for someone just out of a coma. Not a great era for soaps right now.

For better and sometimes for worse there have been many cast changes on soaps….i still recall the mass firings on Days in 1980 that was very upsetting to me and many fans,,,but in the last few years Days has had a revolving door with some stars returning for short story arcs..my problem is far fetched stories like Patch/Stefano…masks, supernatural and sci fi stories on this classic soap that used to be so much better than that…and if your going to have Stefano back instead of passing as Patch it at least would had made more sense had he showed up as John instead which would had gotten him close to Marlena..CBS two soaps stay more down to earth with classic soap couples and soap stories and why they remain higher rated than GH and Days…no wonder soaps are becoming a thing of the past with so much nonsense and unbelievable campy plotting!!!

You may be right, Jimh. I remember when DYNASTY lost all credibility when Fallon was abducted by aliens! Whereas KNOTS LANDING stuck with character-based stories and lasted longer and better.

The mass firings on Days in 1980 was before my time. Who were the actors let go at that time?

Jimh
Jimh

Those who let go where the actors who played the Andersons such as Bob, Phylis and Linda..Cathy who was suppose to be Marie Hortons daughter and several others-some quit like actor Ed Mallory who played Bill Horton…

Celia

Hmmmm—1980–wasn’t born yet, LOL….but, my grandmother, who has been watching since day one, Jimmy, said that DOOL has never gone this crazy….Maybe once with Marlena and the Devil, LOL….but repetition doesn’t always hit the spot.
I agree, the PTB are all over the place—-there probably is a beginning and an end to their mind-spinning tales, but, many of us don’t have the patience to follow vicious circles.
I am not a fan of the Stefan/Patch storyline either. This Ben thing, is becoming soooo stale, as well—among others–Jordan ‘s mysterious murderer should come to light ( was it David’s sitter/Sonny’s new love interest?).
I am glad that the dumb plot of Gabi, holding Julie’s life literally in her hand, is coming to an end. It’s a soap, I get it—-yet, I’ d like to see an adult storyline once in a while.
Oh, BTW—Camila is also leaving the show? My sister said she read it somewhere—

Jimh

yes…her killer is the baby sitter

I can’t believe it

why would I want to sit and watch now ? Gina/Hope ; Jennifer ; Nicole ??? even Gabs doesn’t cut ; what do the women really draw ? a show about womanhood and all the “trappings” that go along with ???? A GOOD man

Woah

this is tearing it all up

Patrick

@DAYS can NOW lay waste to any thing…

I think he’s jumping ship before it goes down. Rafe will be missed

Patrick

awe shucks.. i’d rather hear that… than know he was let go; fired !!!!

I just read on soapcentral.. that Casey Moss’ JJ is leaving on his own accord

so the rumour mill is on board hitting

I WISHED upon WISHED that @DAYS coulda woulda shoulda HIRED Christie Clark for the mega hotted out Carrie Brady. dang it it was magic with her last return. sure sounds that much golden than any thing Hope , Jennifer, and Nicole could fire up in their golden year

I wish this man well

I so enjoyed your run on Days! In my opinion they are making a BIG mistake with Sonny and Will as well. So Happy Birthday and good luck on future endeavors. Also hope you come back.

It’s been great Galen, thank you and best of luck. On a serious, note you are probably getting out at the right time with the management/writing/producing team on this show!! It will be lucky to survive beyond the year it was just renewed for.

I am going to miss Rafe. Could this be just the beginnings of letting actors on DOOL go. Did NBC order the producers of this show to cut costs?

ALeta

So sad to see Rafe go!!! It won’t be the same. I certainly hope he’s not being recast with another man, no actor can fill his shoes! Something good better be happening with Ben and Ciara and Zander to keep people watching.

I will sure miss him, but they really haven’t had a SL for him in a long time. Even as Hope’s husband and employee, Hope acted like she was doing him a favor.
I think he can do much better than what he’s been given lately. Good luck to him. He will be a good addition to any show.

Pat

So sad that the character of Rafe will no longer be on Days. Galen is a great actor. Hope it was his decision to leave. If not, then the decision makers at Days need to rethink this bad decision.

Too bad one of his last things to do was to put his sister in jail.

DAYS’ Christie Clark Shares Coronavirus Health Update

Days of our Lives fans love her as as Carrie Brady, and are often very happy when they find out Christie Clark is back for a visit taping episodes of the NBC soap opera.  But that’s not what’s happening right now.  Right now, we need Christie to get all her strength back.

Clark shared via her Instagram today a health update on her battle with the coronavirus that hit both her and her husband while they have been living in the United Kingdom.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”

Send your well-wishes to Christie and Tom as they are on currently getting stronger and recovering from the virus via the comment section below.
