Courtesy/NBC

Days of our Lives enduring and 92-year-old star, Bill Hayes (Doug Williams) got the surprise of his life when during a commercial break while attending a taping of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Hayes’ grandson spoke up to Fallon, about that Hayes long-running career at NBC and that he actually appeared on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson three times as a guest.

Bill, who was in the audience with his wife, Susan Seaforth Hayers (Julie, DAYS) and his grandson, was then invited onstage by Fallon! From there, Hayes was mic’d up and talked about his early career from being on Your Show of Shows, to the release of his hit single, “The Ballad of Davy Crockett”.   Sheryl Crow, was the musical guest up next who paid a bit of an homage to Hayes, as you will see.

Watch the moment with Hayes and Fallon after the jump! Let us know what you thought of the Hayes and Fallon exchange in the comment section below.

I cannot possibly love this any more. Bill Hayes is a gem. He’s a love and a kind soul. I’ve had the privilege of talking to him one on one and photographing him for press, loving him as a fan, and just admiring him as an enduring actor and presence on Days of our Lives. He is happy to accept praise and admiration, but he does so with grace and humility. He’s such a professional — look at how he just settled right into that seat with Fallon. He didn’t go on and on, but he said a ton, all of it compelling and on the mark for what Jimmy and this audience would want to hear. He doesn’t hog the spotlight, but he does attract it by just his sheer presence. I adore him, and I adore Susan, and I’m so glad their grandson spoke up, because this was gold. GOLD. The man is 92 going on 54, he’s incredibly spry, and he’s a mensch on top of it all. Thank you, Jimmy Fallon, and thank you Michael Fairman, for the article.

Wow, just wonderful to see Bill is doing so well at the age of 92…I loved the love story of Addie, Doug and Julie and if I am correct William Bell was writing DOOL which was so good at the time…

Bill Hayes is becoming a good example of how to promote himself and daytime with his Jimmy Fallon appearance and recent online documentary of his life (free for any of those who haven’t seen it and just the right length.) I would love to see more Classic Daytime stars out there promoting daytime.

The Tonight Show needs to really schedule people like Bill Hayes and other icons of the industry. They helped create television and the industry.

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.

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”
