These are the DAYS related parts. Link to full interview http://www.celebritybabyscoop.com/2010/03/25/galen-gering-fatherhood-is-truly-amazing

“Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.” How many times have us die-hard Days of our Lives fans heard that one?! Celebrity Baby Scoop was thrilled to chat with three of the hottest characters from our favorite daytime drama: Rafael "Rafe" Hernandez, Brady Black and Arianna "Ari" Hernandez.

First up is Galen Gering as Rafe, the sexy suitor of bad girl Sami Brady. Galen opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about on-set playdates with Alison Sweeney's son Ben, his longtime love Jenna and their two boys Dillon and Jensen, and how he juggles his family life with his scandalous life in Salem.

CBS: Does Dillon understand what you do for a living?

GG: “I don’t think he fully comprehends that I’m on Days of our Lives or else he wouldn’t treat me like his slave. ‘Get you orange juice, really? Don’t you want my autograph kid?!’”

CBS: You starred in Passions and have now joined the Days of our Lives cast. What are some of the biggest differences between working on the two shows?

GG: “The speed at which we work has been ramped up a lot but mostly I enjoy the pace. It’s exciting and challenging. At times it’d be nice to have an option to do other takes and try things a little differently because that’s one of the great and fun things to do as an actor. It’s not a luxury we often get though. Hey, it’s show business not show fun.”

CBS: On Passions, you costarred with Lindsay Hartley and Eric Martsolf. What is it like working with them again?

GG: “They’re both very talented and sweet people who love to work and are what most people would consider super agreeable. They bring a lot of good stuff to the table. At times, it’s also surreal to be on a different show with a similar dynamic.”

CBS: Have you made some good friends on the set of Days?

GG: “What a nice set it is! People are really cool and mostly seem to get along. Fortunately, Alison Sweeney and I hit it off. It’d be really different to have to spend so many hours with someone you couldn’t stand. Trust me, it’s happened.”

CBS: Do your boys ever have any on-set playdates with any of your costars' kids?

GG: “Ali’s son Ben and my son Dillon are buddies. They are so cute together it’s ridiculous. We were all up at my place in Mammoth together and they played incessantly for days.”

CBS: Do you have a lot of fun on the set of Days?

GG: “We have a good time and laugh a lot, but when the camera is rollin’ it’s time to deliver. You don’t want to be that guy holding up production.”

CBS: Is it all drama and seriousness like your characters?

GG: “With that said, we joke constantly. Everyone likes to laugh and there’s a lot of fodder day in and day out.”

CBS: Ever play any practical jokes on your costars?

GG: “There was a giant cardboard sign for an NBC show that got canceled that irritated Ali. James Scott and I took the gigantic sign and put it in her dressing room. It was pretty funny.”

CBS: Tell us what a day in the life of a soap star is like.

GG: “Work on your lines the evening or day before you go in to the studio, depending on how much material you have. Get into the studio at 7:15 A.M. (6:15 A.M. if you’re a girl), get coffee, shave, go to hair and makeup and have them try and spruce you up, get more coffee. Go to dry block, which is when the director tells you where to go on the set during the scenes. Then hopefully run some lines with your co-star and make magic happen!”

CBS: How are you able to manage your work schedule and your family life?

GG: “Due to the speed at which we move now, our schedule has become much better and it’s actually a heck of lot easier. It’s great – what a gig!”

CBS: Can you give us any inside scoop on what to expect from your character, Rafael Hernandez?

GG: “Hopefully, a lot of incredibly exciting, moving, and funny stuff will be in his near future! Maybe he’ll get back the love of his life, solve the Sydney kidnapping mystery and then get Sami pregnant with another set of twins…you’ll have to watch to find out!”

Is Galen the only person on set that can do interviews? It seems like almost every week we're getting some "fascinating" look into the mind of Galen or the character of Rafe.

He's very pretty and nice to look at, but the type that I'd prefer keep his mouth shut.

Rafe doesn't float my boat, but the pics that I see of Galen with his kids he has a million dollar smile that makes him handsome...too bad it doesn't translate onto my screen.

Cute interview.

LOL about his wife and the twin girls – too cute and about his son treating him like a slave! :lol:
He’s obviously someone who loves to laugh in real life and he’s playing Rafe as serious FBI at the moment.
Also love his hopes for Rafe too of course especially solving the Sydnapping! :popcorn:

It had been a wonderful evening and what I needed now, to give it the perfect ending, was a little of the Ludwig Van.

Kristian Alfonso is a parent. Peter Reckell is a parent. Ari Zucker is a NEW parent. I'm sure Judi Evans is a parent. Dont' know about Wally. What about John Aniston and an interview about having a child in the biz?

It was from babyscoop. Many of those others don't have babies or little ones. It could be that Ari and Kyle don't want to give an interview yet. She just had the baby a few months ago.
I thought GG's interview was great. He has a super sense of humor and a wonderful looking family. Seems like a great guy on and off camera.

That was my thought too!

Isn't Beth doing porn now?

Or maybe he was referring to Precious. :laugh:

p.s. As a huge Rafe hater, thank you for posting this interview because it actually didn't annoy me for once for some reason. I think it's because it actually feels like we've been getting a little bit of a break in the SOD/SOW Rafextravaganzas
