“Hottie” Dr. Daniel Comes to This Week’s On-Air On-Soaps Podcast

Days
of Our Lives'
Shawn Christian (pictured), one of soaps' sexiest stars, is the
special guest on this week’s
On-Air On-Soaps Podcast
with my cohosts, General Hospital
and Cougar Town star Carolyn Hennesy and Being Erica and
MVP’s young stud Dillon Casey. On Days this
“man whore” — a term created by both Shawn and me for Dr. Daniel because of his
oversexed lifestyle — is always in some sort of sexually charged
predicament. “I am always in trouble. Whenever I shoot a scene, the
crew goes, ‘Wait a minute! Are you guys sleeping together?’ and we are
not!”

Dr. Daniel recently found out he has a daughter he never
knew about from a one-night fling with fellow doc Carly Manning,
played by Crystal Chappell. In the meantime he has been the beau of
another LGBT fave, Venice and Days star Nadia Bjorlin
(Chloe). Shawn says there is some major material coming to the airwaves
soon. “You know it’s going to be a crazy day when the producers send
you a Crazy Day Alert. This happened a few weeks ago when we taped. It
was quite an eventful day, because I think I did work with four
different women, and I think it required four different outfits ... one my
shirt off, one my pants off, one my shoes off, and ... ” Shawn says a
romantic pairing with Chappell may not be out of the question, as you
just never know in the hot town of Salem. Make sure not to miss the
hosts and Shawn’s discussion of soap opera prostate exams as well!
Enough said!



Gays of Our Lives Event in the Big Apple

What
happens when an American online soap journalist tries to interview two
foreign soap stars? Well, despite the language barrier — as you will
see, it is at times a hilarious issue — We Love Soaps' Damon L.
Jacobs spoke with Thore Schölermann
(Christian)
and Jo Weil (Olli) from the
hugely popular German soap opera Verbotene Liebe at the Gays of Our Lives Event in New York City March 27. This duo play the
star-crossed lovers of the soap. As many know, former HBO executive Sam
Martin has recently acquired the rights to Christian and Olli’s story,
and he is set to adapt it for the U.S. market as, of course, Forbidden

Love. HBO Films and HBO Entertainment will have first-look rights
before it’s shopped elsewhere. One Life’s Scott Evans was also
in attendance at the Gays of Our Lives event shortly after being
pink-slipped by the powers that be who preside over Llanview. So who
should star in the American remake of Christian and Olli? Send us your
thoughts here!
