The world of soap operas is often perceived as small, but E! is about to change all that with their reality show Dirty Soap. If you’re unfamiliar with the seven soap stars in the cast, not to worry. We’ve got you covered. To find out who Days of our Lives hottie Galen Gering is, keep on reading.
Galen Gering got his start in Daytime by playing Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald on the wacky supernatural soap opera Passions. After his nine year run on that series ended with the show’s cancellation, he transitioned into the role of Rafe Hernandez, cop and husband to heroine Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney), on Days of our Lives. He also stars as Owen Brogno on the popular web series Venice.
Prior to his career on soaps, Galen was raised by “hippie parents” in southern California, moved to New York, modeled, traveled Europe and graduated from the University of Miami. In 2000, he was named one of People Magazine’s 50 most beautiful people.
While his Dirty Soap co-star Kelly Monaco may be re-entering the dating scene, Galen is firmly entrenched in family life. He has been married to his wife Jenna for 11 years, with whom he has two sons Dillon and Jensen.
In the Dirty Soap video preview, despite Galen being in the soap opera business of making out with hot women onscreen for over a decade, Jenna apparently still gets a little jealous. Will Galen be able to balance his family life with that of being a soap stud? Watch Dirty Soap when it premieres on September 25 to find out.
