The annual "Day of Days" event was held on Saturday, November 14 at Universal Citywalk. Mandy Lynn Denaux covered the event for Serial Scoop and chatted with the cast of Days of our Lives about the 50th anniversary of the iconic soap opera, and much more. Casey Moss–who plays JJ Deveraux–shared his thoughts on his character, backstage changes, the show's milestone anniversary, and his aversion for social media.

Read our interview below.

SERIAL SCOOP: We know you can’t share too much of the upcoming storyline, but if you had to summarize in one word what your character has been up to, what would that word be?
CASEY MOSS: Man, that is a good one! One word of what I have been doing? Figuring it out. That’s not one word, but that’s it. Figuring it out.

SERIAL SCOOP: You were there before the new writers, what’s the biggest shift you’ve seen with the new regime coming in?
CASEY MOSS: Everyone is more hands on. Albert [Alarr, co-executive producer] is cool. He was our director before. We have our writers on the floor. The effort and love, it shows a lot more.

SERIAL SCOOP: If you could be any other character on the show, regardless of age or gender, who would it be?
CASEY MOSS: Roman.

SERIAL SCOOP: He said the same thing! [pointing to Josh Taylor, who plays Roman]
CASEY MOSS: Really? I would love to be the Commissioner. Be the head. That would be awesome.

SERIAL SCOOP: Social media...how has that impacted your experience as an actor?
CASEY MOSS: I try to not let it. I am not a fan of social media. I do it. It is really good to communicate with fans but True [O’Brien] just showed me an article how it can mess up your creativity. I am a writer and I write lyrics and write songs and it can mess up your creativity.

SERIAL SCOOP: I saw you sing last weekend.
CASEY MOSS: Yeah! That was fun. That was cool. But I try to stay off of it (social media) as much as possible.

SERIAL SCOOP: If you can be cast on another show, a show you are a fan of, what show would that be?
CASEY MOSS: Scandal or Empire. Those are my two favorite shows. I would love if they brought on a rock artist...rock and pop and hip-hop or something like that, and try to convert a rock artist into a corporate machine. That would be cool. [Points directly at the camera]

SERIAL SCOOP: What’s it been like for you to have been a part of this 50th anniversary?
CASEY MOSS: It’s been a blessing. It’s been cool. When I got the show, and they first booked me as JJ, I did not realize how big that was. Being a part of the whole family, a big family, and to still be here is awesome. Awesome! It’s cool.
