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 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

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.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

Eileen Davidson and Galen Gering Join the Cast of Blake Berris’ Upcoming Film, ‘Fangirl’

From the creative mind of former Days of our Lives star, Blake Berris (Ex-Nick Fallon), comes the new movie entitled, Fangirl!

As previously announced, Berris has written and will also star in the film that is currently having its crowdfunding campaign on Seed & Spark.

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.”
