Days of Our Lives stars to visit SA
2012-10-17 13:31 by Thinus Ferreira

Cape Town Days of Our Lives soap stars will be visiting South Africa soon.

Galen Gering, Arianne Zucker and Drake Hogestyn, better known to million of viewers as Rafe Hernandez, Nicole Walker and John Black, are getting ready to come to South Africa and meet the fans.

Gering, Zucker and Hogestyn, who are seen on weekdays on the American soap on SABC3 on 17:30 (with a next-day repeat on SABC2), will be at Sandton City in Johannesburg at 12:00 on Wednesday 31 October, and at Canal Walk in Cape Town on Friday 2 November at 12:00.

Channel24 has learnt that the three American soap stars will touch down in South Africa on 28 October as the guests of SABC3 and that all three of them are greatly looking forward to visiting South Africa during spring.

Gering plays the handsome FBI agent, Rafe; while viewers know Zucker as the unlucky-in-love golddigger Nicole. Hogestyn has been in the soap for decades as the enigmatic John Black and Marlena's on-again, off-again lover.

"Days of Our Lives continues to be one of television's most iconic shows," says Risuna Mayimele, SABC3's marketing manager.

"SABC3 is delighted to be bringing three of the stars from the show to South Africa to meet their fans. This television powerhouse is a top ratings winner worldwide and South Africa is no exception."

Well I meant it to rpmaluki because of her banner and I quoted her/him, and I also loved Ejole, so that is the we I was referring to. I know many didn't like that pairing as others don't like other pairings. Personally I see more storyline potential with those two :shrug: but to each their own. No offense meant just thought Ari should know that just because the writers wanna make her character the villian in everything she does have fans in pairings that the writers may or may not chose.

I am part of that WE too!! Love Ejole--if EJ acts right and he has a ton to make up for at this point.

I really hope you get to go Rpmaluki!

It was a mad house, hundreds of people were there screaming their lungs off for all three. Galen had them screaming the loudest and John for being a favourite. Ari was gorgeous. She even sang a song in Zulu and everybody joined in. That was wow. Drake talked about rugby which was cool and I love the sport. He mentioned a mil $ challenge happening in the US in November, he seems eager for the sport to grow in the US. Everyone loved it when he mentioned the Springboks playing in the tournament.

Galen was inaudible with all the women screaming every time he looked their way. Then when it was time to ask questions some lady asked about him and sami. He said she will have another baby which is odd since in SA everybody knows Sydney is Sami's so who was he talking about. He was probably joking but an odd thing to say since I am sure they were prepped about the current SA s/l. She asked about Safe and he said things are usually good then they deteriorate then they are good and deteriorate and so forth; saying Sami tends to be destructive of the two. That's when some lady stepped in and the only questions asked were on cue cards I am sure so they wouldn't spoil accidentally for both SA and US. He also joked about how he was almost mauled by a young lion, lol. I doubt he was serious.

Drake mentioned Kristen returning but folks were happier Jarlena was returning to their screens and he looks younger IRL. He was such a hugger, so friendly and charming. He supposed streaked for some lady who ended up in his suite by accident and Galen caught him out again, the whole thing was apparently hilarious.

Ari didn't answer any questions but was complimented for being beautiful and she blushed on always kissing all these gorgeous men all the time. She signed an autograph for me and joked about doing a crossover with SA soap Isidingo: The need. They took more pics with adoring fans and then time was up, flying to Cape Town.

Thank you so much for posting your experience seeing and meeting Ari, Galen, and Drake. They all seem to be having a great time in South Africa. SA has certainly given them a warm and enthusiastic welcome.

No unfortunately he didn't. I think the organisers didn't want them spoiling anything serious due to the massive difference in what airs between SA and the US.

Maybe it is just me but it does seem like the writers are going for Rafe and Nicole.

I know that she is going to have a scene with Eric, I wonder how that is going to work out.

South Africa is behind us in air shows, so they're talking about stuff from a couple of years ago.
