Sharing an up close and personal experience between the actors and their fans.

Viewers watch them each day in daytime and some often make trips to various events in order to meet them. Soap opera fans are the most passionate ones around and Soaps.com is excited to pass along a way to connect even more with some of the actors on a very personal level. “Days of our Lives’” Galen Gering (Rafe Hernandez) and Greg Vaughan (Eric Brady), as well as “The Young and the Restless’” Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) have launched free, personal apps as a way to communicate with their fans – and they are even giving one fan the opportunity of a lifetime by flying them out to Los Angeles for dinner with each actor!
