Actor Joseph Gallison starred for years as Dr. Neil Curtis on Days of our Lives, leaving the NBC soap opera in 1991 after a 17-year run. He recently spoke with WECT in Wilmington about his long daytime run.

Gallison played Bill Matthews on Another World, Tom Edwards on One Life to Live, and Dr. Hollis Forbes on Where the Heart Is prior to be asked to read for a six-week part on Days in 1974.

"I enjoyed it. I loved it! But I thought it was time to go," Gallison said, about leaving Days in 1991 when asked to take a pay cut. "When I came back from a vacation they had not written me out of the show, because they thought I was going to hang around. So my last line was, 'I have patients to see, lots of patients.'"

Gallison says he has no regrets about his departure, which led to more television roles and also to Broadway, and eventually, a move to Wilmington.
