DAYS’ Greg Rikaart On Playing A Gay Man
“What is super gratifying to me about this part is I love having the opportunity to play a gay man. And what’s so fantastic about the stories being told on this show is that there’s a not a token gay character who just happens to exist; there are three gay characters and they are involved in heavy story. The fact that one of them gets to be a bad guy how far we’ve come.”
What do you think is going to happen with Leo, Xander and Sonny? What are your thoughts on Greg Rikaart playing a gay villain?
