So-and-so’s “gonna kill me” is fast becoming his go-to line!
If you’ve ever thought, “Man, it must be a blast to be a soap opera star!” Days of our Lives‘ Galen Gering (Rafe) has some news for you: It freakin’ is! And, as if to prove it, on August 12, he posted a series of photos and a video illustrating what “a typical day” on the set is like — you know, “a small window” into the cast’s world.
“First,” wrote the actor, holding a card from a fan, “there’s me showing up and receiving something great in the mailbox. Love that.”
From there, Gering took us to hair and makeup, where he found Kate Mansi (ex-Abigail) “laughing hysterically after spilling her peanut sauce all over” a beloved crew member. What? Peanut sauce is pretty hilarious (and tasty!).

People often ask what a typical day at @nbcdays is like. This offers a small window into that. First there’s me showing up and receiving something great in the mail(love that.) Then @katemansi laughing hysterically after spilling her peanut sauce all over our beloved Deidre. Goodtimes. Then rehearsal with the amazing @salstowers and @lamonarchey as always, @salstowers looking at me like ‘why are you recording this?!’ Fair thought. Same thoughts in next photo. @camila lookin fly ready to blow up Julie’s heart. Sis got issues. And of course @lamonarchey and @1caseymoss lookin like the dudes everyone wants to hang out with. And then there’s @laurenkoslow givin me the finger for something I probably didn’t deserve. 😜And now she’s gonna kill me. And that’s all folks…
Next on the backstage tour, Gering escorted us to rehearsal with Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani), and to the set, where Camila Banus was up to no good as Gabi. “Sis got issues,” Gering quipped.
Finally, the departing star passed by Archey and Casey Moss (ex-JJ) “looking like the dudes everyone wants to hang out with” and took a photo with onetime on-screen lover Lauren Koslow (Kate) as she was “giving me the finger for something I probably didn’t deserve.
“And now,” he concluded, “she’s gonna kill me.” Well, it was worth it, Galen; that was a hoot.
