RELATED STORIES It’s completion of Days for yet one more star of NBC’s daytime drama.
Galen Gering, who has actually played Days of Our Lives’ Rafe Hernandez because October 2008, disclosed on Instagram on Thursday– on his birthday celebration, no less– that, like castmates Freddie Smith and Chandler Massey (that play Sonny and also Will), his time on the soap has actually come to an end.
Earlier this week, Smith revealed his and scene partner Massey’s departures, claiming “it was not our option” to leave. “We were expecting remaining on and also maintaining the story going,” he included. “But I do recognize there is a lot occurring with Days of Our Lives [right now]”
The “whole lot taking place” refers to the truth that when Days lately was renewed for Season 56, Corday Productions started officially bargaining new bargains with some– but clearly not all– participants of the series’ large ensemble.
“I’ve always seen birthdays as a day of representation, a chance to look back at where I’ve been and also where I’m going. It’s unusually befitting that today also happens to be my last day at Days,” Gering composed in his Instagram post, below.
“Man … I have such great memories from the last 10 years,” he continued, rattling off some of the far-out stories he has been associated with. “And offscreen, I’ve made friendships that I will have for a life time.”
“Thanks for the memories Days of Our Lives,” he stated to conclude, after giving thanks to followers. “Like sands with the hourglass …”
Due to Days‘ uncommon taping schedule– the soap shoots six months beforehand– Rafe will remain on-screen till autumn.
