Top Ten Reasons to move to Salem from TV Guide Canada!

DAYS.jpgWhat are the top ten reasons to move to Salem, USA on a permanent basis?  TV Guide Canada’s Nelson Branco has his top ten rationale in the new Soapgeist column out yesterday. At numero uno, is none other than Crystal Chappell’s return as Carly Manning… but what are the other reasons? Make sure to read then all here. Below are the top four to tease ya!

1. We’re not in Springfield anymore: Watching the most beautiful, popular, and talented actor in the business, Crystal Chappell, work her magic as Carly Manning on DAYS is a little surreal but it’s also a welcomed treat.

2. Thanks Thorsten Kaye: James Scott is not only drop-dead gorgeous but he’s also as equally as talented as some of the best older actors in the business.

3. Richard Culliton is proving (like his wife Carolyn, who is editing at One Life) to be one of the finest scriptwriters in the business.

4. Hands down, the underrated Suzanne Rogers has become the quintessential supporting actress in the business.

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.

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”
