Why DAYS OF OUR LIVES' Dr. Drake Ramoray Is the Best Fake Soap Character Ever


By Chris Eades

In the second season of FRIENDS, Joey was cast on the NBC soap opera DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Dr. Drake Ramoray, and the character became legendary! A handsome doctor who fell in love with his patients, Drake was Joey's biggest acting role ever... at least until he got too big for his britches and the writers punished him for his arrogance by killing him off the show!


So in honor of our favorite fake soap character of all time, let's take a look at these eight reasons why Dr. Drake Ramoray is so unforgettable


He had a fictional brother!

Okay, yes, soap characters are all fictitious, but when Joey started dating one of his fans, he found out she genuinely believed he was actually Dr. Drake Ramoray. In an effort to throw her off, Ross told her that Joey was actually Drake’s evil twin, Hans, who pretends to be Drake in order to seduce women and never talk to them again! Insert water-throwing here!

He wrote many of his own lines!

When Joey found fame as a daytime soap star, his ego got a little out of control. In an interview with the soap press, he told the reporter that Dr. Ramoray was such a great character because he made up his own dialogue! Needless to say, the actual writers of the show weren't thrilled to hear that...

He was “killed off” in an outrageous soap death!

Soaps are famous for killing people in crazy ways, and Dr. Ramoray was no different! While GENERAL HOSPITAL killed off a villain by having him fall down a bottomless pit, the writers of DAYS wrote Drake out of the show by having him fall down an elevator shaft! Although this didn’t actually kill him, it left Drake in a coma with such a severe brain injury, he was the only surgeon talented enough to fix it! Oops!

He was brought back to life by a brain transplant!

Characters return to life all the time on soaps, and writers will sometimes make up the most incredible stories to bring them back. But no actual daytime drama can hold a candle to Drake’s resurrection after the brain of Jessica Lockhart was implanted into his body! (Interestingly, Jessica was played by Susan Sarandon, who got her start as Sarah Fairbanks on the classic soap SEARCH FOR TOMORROW back in the ’70s!)

He got paid for doing very little!

Dream job?! Dr. Ramoray was a renowned neurosurgeon who never really seemed to do any actual work, but that’s par for the course for most soap characters! At least he was at the hospital most times!



SEE PIC HERE:
http://www.cbs.soapsindepth.com/post...r-lives-148967



His character entered the real world!

While everyone was at the hospital waiting for Rachel to give birth, Phoebe met a cute guy in the elevator who had broken his leg. Joey drew on his acting abilities to play Dr. Ramoray in reality to get the guy’s room number for Phoebe, then asked him some rather probing questions to see if he was worthy of her!



SEE PIC HERE:
http://www.cbs.soapsindepth.com/post...r-lives-148967



He had a lot of famous friends!

Alison Sweeney — who actually appeared on DAYS as Sami Brady — starred alongside Joey as Jessica Ashley. And DAYS stars Matthew Ashford (ex-Jack) and Kyle Lowder (ex-Brady) both attended Joey’s rooftop party! (Ashford even hit on Rachel!)



SEE PIC HERE:
http://www.cbs.soapsindepth.com/post...r-lives-148967



He died twice!

Although Joey continued to play Drake on FRIENDS, on his spinoff series, JOEY, it was revealed that Dr. Ramoray was once again killed off of DAYS when he was stabbed by a nurse while performing surgery. But on the plus side, Joey won the award for “Best Death Scene!”

The Biggest Soap Casting Shockers of 2017!

Updated: Dec 19, 2017 9:49 am

By Chris Eades

Over the past year, the soap opera twists and turns haven’t all been on-screen as casting shockers dominated the news throughout 2017. From unexpected returns nobody saw coming to the surprising exits of fan-favorite characters mid-storyline, these are the comings and goings that kept viewers on the edge of their seats waiting to see what would happen next.

Which casting item left you reeling? Was it the shocking return of Steve Burton to GENERAL HOSPITAL as Patient Six (later revealed to be Jason Morgan), Emmy-winner Greg Rikaart leaving THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS and being snatched up by DAYS OF OUR LIVES? Or perhaps it was popular GH star Ingo Rademacher being tapped by THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL to play the new Thorne? Or maybe it was Chandler Massey’s return from the dead as Will on DAYS?

Take a look through the gallery below to see some of the biggest casting shockers of 2017, and let us know which ones surprised you the most!

(It also reunited the actor with his former GH on-screen dad, Stephen Nichols (ex-Stefan), who plays Patch on the NBC sudser!)

DAYS OF OUR LIVES Spoilers — JJ Contemplates Suicide!

Dec 18, 2017 1:00 pm

By Chris Eades

The holidays could lead to tragedy in these spoilers from DAYS OF OUR LIVES. As families gather together to celebrate the season, JJ’s guilt could drive him to do something desperate that would shatter Salem forever!

Most of Salem is preparing for the holidays, including the traditional decorating of the Horton Christmas tree with the ornaments featuring all of their names and those of the ones who are no longer with them. Shawn and Belle are home for the holidays, reunited with their daughter, Claire, and Sonny and Will seem to be on the road to a reunion of their own. But JJ can’t get into the holiday spirit because he is still overwhelmed with guilt over shooting an unarmed Theo in the line of duty. And with Theo lingering in a coma, JJ’s depression continues to spiral out of control.

Visiting the spot in Salem Place where the shooting took place, JJ sees all of the flowers, candles, and a photo of Theo that his loved ones have laid there. “How can I keep on living,” JJ asks, his voice thick with emotion, “when Theo never will?” And his guilt could drive the tortured young man to do something unthinkable. Wearing his dress uniform, the cop holds a gun in one hand and his phone in the other. At the Horton’s, Jennifer takes a call from her son and worries when he says: “Mom, I’ve gotta go now.” As JJ checks to make sure his pistol is loaded, is he seriously considering taking his own life to balance the scales?

SPOILER - A returning character to Days

Spoiler quote below

Theresa (Jen Lilley) will return to Salem in May. It sounds like big trouble’s looming on the NBC soap.

This is from celebrity dirty laundry site. Brady and Eve might be a 'thing' by then. If they are an item by May, what do you think we can expect when Theresa returns?

Given all the talk in the daily thread about Abe, I thought it was interesting that James Reynolds retweeted this article today. I usually consider this site to be pure speculation (basically what we all do in these threads), and maybe James just retweeted it because it was an article about his character. But if this does come to pass, it might help the story...slightly.

Again, the article doesn't provide any real evidence to support its claims; I'm just curious about James retweeting it.
