Days of Our Lives is an iconic soap opera that has won over generations of loyal viewers and the co-executive producer Greg Meng called in to speak to Laurel, Gary and Mark. 

Greg has become an established member of the Days of Our Lives crew, serving as the Executive in Charge of Production for 15 years before being promoted to co-Executive Producer in 2011 – going on to win a Daytime Emmy in 2013. 

From watching his grandmothers glued to the TV screen ever day to watch the soap opera growing up to now, Greg can attest to being as addicted to the show as its worldwide audience. 

Listen to the full podcast interview with Greg below. 

On the eve of the show turning 50 this year, Australian fans will have another reason to watch religiously – with a current Search For A Star competition underway to find the next Aussie cast member. 

The desired applicant? A rugged Australian between the ages of 20 to 35 with prior acting experience and a twinkle in their eye. 


Of course that piqued the interest of our own Gary Clare and Mark Hine, who couldn’t resist but to create their own audition tape… 

Feast your eyes on the below… Obviously they are raising the bar pretty high!
