Up close with the actors.

Soaps.com’s May interviews with the stars of Daytime television had one former soap opera actor talking about how he’s spread his wings, one chatting about what it’s like to play a dual role, one reflecting on the character he once played and more…

One former “All My Children,” “As The World Turns,” “Bold And The Beautiful,” “Guiding Light,” and “Port Charles” actor has proven that the world doesn’t come to an end when leaving Daytime behind. In our Brian Gaskill Interview he talks to Soaps.com’s Editor-In-Chief Christine Fix about his new directing and camp instructor gigs. “New Jersey is where my dreams began…and even back then I always thought one day I would be back helping foster the dreams of kids one day and helping them just get through that crazy part of their lives with the help of acting and theater and the arts.”

Soaps.com caught up with some of the Salem actors at a special event. In our Days of our Lives Paley Center Interviews Galen Gering (Rafe/ex-Arnold) reflected on what it was like to play a dual role. “It was so fun. The worst part about it ultimately became driving her (Alison Sweeney) crazy which I loved in the beginning but then I was like, wow, she’s literally going to go insane.” In the link you’ll also be able to view photos from the event and watch video interviews with Bryan Dattilo (Lucas) and Chandler Massey (Will).
