I wouldn't be so quick to say he is a bad actor, because I've seen ALOT of BAD acting on this show. He's not bad, it seems like none of you want to give him a chance.

I'm all for giving anyone a chance when they come to a show I like. I don't immediately go back and look for the "garbage" that they had in their previous acting job or jobs. It seems to me that there are alot of people out there who get Emmy nods and awards and they are really bad. GG is NOT a bad actor, apparently you guys didn't watch all of his work on Passions. I admit the last year or two he did get bad but that's because I think his storyline was crap and they changed the direction of his character from when he first started.

Give the guy a break and a chance if he does come, it's sad that you can't look past your limited vision apparently. If this was the case then ALL of us would be in the same boat, because we all have been BAD at something in our jobs/lives/careers.

I also wonder if these are the fans who constantly put him down the whole time he was on Passions, and you will know who you are because you were fans of other couples and couldn't see the chemistry that he had with MW.

Anyway that's my say, to give anyone a chance because don't we all deserve that in the long run?
I watched him for 8 years on PASSIONS, and never once was I particularly impressed with his performances, even on the rare occasion that the material was there. I'd say I've given him a pretty damn good chance to change my opinion of his acting. But that's just me.

Furthermore, yeah, it's no secret that DAYS has had its share of bad actors (as has every other soap). But does that mean we should add another one to the list? No.
Is that casting director Marni still at Days? She's been doing an excellent job thus far. If this dude Galen is this questionable and polarizing, I'd think she'd avoid him and try to get someone more universally qualified, like she did Roscoe Born, Joe Penny, and Linden Ashby. And, really, there needs to be a moratorium on new characters for a while, unless they're day players or cameos like Eve Plumb. There are too many storylines that need to be wrapped up and redirected without throwing something else into the mix.
