Eric Martsolf, Galen Gering
Only in Salem, kids, only in Salem. Days of Our Lives heartthrobs Eric Martsolf (Brady) and Galen Gering (Rafe) claim they had no problem shooting the soap's Magic Mike spoof airing April 23. But let's get real here. When you launch your career on Passions — as both actors did — you probably don't have much dignity left!

Galen Gering, Passions
Passions devotees who root for "Shuis" — the popular Sheridan-and-Luis pairing — are worried to see McKenzie Westmore romancing Adrian Wilson's Chris. Particularly since they've known all along that Luis, as played by Galen Gering, isn't really dead — he was merely written off temporarily due to a delay in the actor's contract negotiations last year. After a six-month absence, Luis will return to Passions on March 8 to find Sheridan married to Chris! Here's what Galen has to say about that and much more.
