Here’s What Zach Tinker Is Doing Post-Days of Our Lives

Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, the handsome actor says that he’s landed a role on the CBS drama Fire Country. Speaking about his new job, he told the publication, “I’ve been up in Canada [filming] for the last few months or so,” he shares. “It’s already picked up for season 2 so we know it’s going for at least another season. I’m playing a guy named Collin O’Reilly, a firefighter who’s the son of a legendary firefighter that passed away. He’s trying to kind of prove himself. It’s a great role. It’s been fun, a blast. I love being out in the field and on location. It’s a different beat. That’s one of the things that’s difficult about soaps to me. Also, you get one take and you move on [on daytime]. With prime-time, as an actor, you get to play a little bit more and explore, which I really enjoy.”

Zach also says that he’s grateful for all of the love that he’s gotten from his fans, even when some of them had a few mixed reactions to his performances. He said, “Here and there I’d get the occasional, ‘I liked Freddie more.’ Look, Freddie’s great. I’m sure he was awesome. But, for the most part, they’ve been pretty dang supportive. I’ve been very lucky. When I was playing Fen, I would say 50 percent of the comments were like, ‘Who is this guy? I don’t like this guy. I want the old one back.’ Where with DAYS, it feels like the majority have generally been happy with my performance and feel like I fit in. So that’s nice. As actors our egos are already as thin as tissue paper. It’s nice to have people like you.”

Will Zach Come Back To Salem?

That said, Zach added that he would return to the soap world in a heartbeat, especially if he were given a chance. He said, “Working on soaps for years sharpened my tools, sharpened my memorization skills. It’s made me more confident in my craft. I think I’m a way better actor because of it.”
