JUST THE FACTS:
Birthday: October 29
Hails From: Sydney, Australia
Name Game: His last name is pronounced “FYUR-a-gill”. “I don’t think I’ve met anyone in my entire life who has ever pronounced it correctly the first time,” he says. “At least the way I pronounce it. It is a German last name, or Prussian, shall we say.”
Plant-Based: Feuerriegel is a vegan. “About four years ago, I was having a few health issues, and this is the thing that worked out best for me,” he explains, noting that he had spent his entire life eating meat. “My grandfather and uncle were butchers. I grew up with the best meat in Australia. I remember going [to the butcher shop]. I worked there for a bit. It was good meat.”
What to Watch: “There’s this program that I watch a lot on YouTube called BREAKING POINTS, which I really like. I get a lot of my news from them.”
Kitty Corner: Cats are Feuerriegel’s Achilles’ heel. “I had two cats growing up, one after the other. And the people I was living with for a number of years here in L.A. had two cats, too. So I got my fill.”
The Sports Game: “I’m a bit of a sports nut. I get sports updates from my local newspaper back in Australia and from Fox Sports and things like that here. My favorite sport is Rugby League back in Australia, but I find myself enjoying any sport.”
Special Collections: “I do a lot of online therapy, like shopping for clothes. I also have a lot of fan clothes and memorabilia from my favorite Rugby League team, the Brisbane Broncos, that I’ve followed since 1988. It’s ridiculous. I just keep buying shirts and jerseys and shorts and socks from them. I’ve probably got like 10 years of stuff from them.”
After eight months on the job at DAYS, Dan Feuerriegel is finally putting his best face — and physique — forward as EJ DiMera. His hair is longer, his body’s leaner and he’s donning some facial scruff. “My look in my original audition was quite similar to how I look now,” reveals Feuerriegel. “I think they wanted to push me back to how James [Scott, ex-EJ] looked — clean-cut and short, back-on-the-sides kind of hair. That’s what they [wanted] in the beginning. So they did that, but it didn’t feel natural to me.”
