Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail Better- Samuel Beckett

Eric Winter first day on set… Days of our lives

Eric Winter’s first day on Days was memorable: He and co-star Alexis Thorpe taped scenes in which they emerged from a space craft, covered in gel. ” It was so smelly”, he cringes. ” We were being rolled around in the leaves and a manure kind of dirt. They wanted us slimy-looking, but all they had as hair gel. It was alcohol-based, so ti evaporated after every scene we finished, and they had to just squirt more all over us. Do you Know how sticky hair gel is? It felt like a gallon of it was on my face and skin. Next thing you know, you’re so dry, you’re asking for lotion. It was like hazing in some fraternity [laughs].”
