In the Daily Telegraph feature they spotlight three men among the throngs who are vying for the role: Russell Queay, John-Paul Jory, and Ben Jesinowski (pictured l to r).
Jory is a former garbage man who grew up watching DAYS with his seven siblings! He related: “I remember watching the show with my brothers and sisters in the afternoon so it would be incredible to have the chance to become part of something I grew up with.”
Queay revealed he has taken his preparation seriously, spending hours inside the emergency department of St Vincent’s Hospital to get a feel for the character: “I wanted to see what it was like to be in that world. To land a gig like this would mean you’d be learning off 20-year veterans.”
