Well ladies and gentlemen, now you can see four hotties of the daytime scene stripping in a fictional scene on Days of our Lives coming up on April 23rd’s episode! That’s right! But what makes this really fun was the interview two of the participants (Galen Gering and Eric Martsolf) just gave to TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, where they discuss the filming of the scenes a la the film Magic Mike!
Apparently upcoming in story, Cameron Davis (Nathan Owens) who has already been paying for his medical school bills by stripping at night in some joint in Chicago get some help from Rafe (Gering), Brady (Martsolf) and Daniel (Shawn Christian) to benefit Salem University Hospital. And to help Cameron out of a job the guys are dressed Village People Y.M.C.A style!
Gering noted that Martsolf was comfortable doing strip shows! “Eric clearly has a lot of experience doing strip shows! And I think Shawn was pretty drunk so he was having a good time, too. I was just trying not to embarrass myself but I kept remembering what they taught us in acting school: Dare to suck.”
And it looks like veteran Peggy McKay (Caroline Brady) attends the strip show featuring the boys! Martsolf related, “I saw Peggy waving her dollar bill and giving me that look and I just couldn’t handle it. I’m thinking, ‘I can’t do it! I just can’t do it!’ So I slowly made my way across to the other side of the stage. As an actor I’ll try pretty much anything. You gotta accept this kind of stuff when you’re a daytimer. It’s what we signed up for. (Laughs) But guess what? I do have boundaries!”
After years having their shirts off for no reason on the defunct NBC soap Passions, Martsolf related how he and Gering were right at home! :Galen and I had no issues — certainly not after Passions where we’d take off our clothes for any mundane reason.” He recalls one plot where he and Justin Hartley had to help a woman who’d been shot. “”I used my shirt as a pillow, he used his as a tourniquet, then we hung around the hospital topless for six episodes asking about her condition. So this thing on Days? Business as usual!”
So DAYS fans are you looking forward to this plot point? We bet you are! Do you think its fun concept as an excuse to see the guys half-naked? Let us know!
