If Casey Moss loses this it would be a crime

Tristan impressed me as soon as he arrived. I wish him well.

Plain and simple, while all actors were great in these clips, Casey Moss stole it. That young man’s acting chops are natural and pure. He is stunning as JJ Devereaux. No shade to any one else involved in this process but Casey deserves the prize for his EXCELLENT work.

Casey should win but his reel was poorly assembled. It’s slow and plodding and doesn’t include his best scenes from the shooting story. Lucas Adams’ reel is much more captivating. I think if Casey wins it will be because of the nature of the story they were telling about white on black copy shooting.

Younger actor, younger…
there are 2 that I’d consider Younger;
Tristan Lake Leabu (Reed), and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake).

The other 3 are not young as in young..
I’d date them ..

The age limit for the category is 26, su. (Or it used to be. I think it still is.)

Now, maybe that’s the wrong age limit, but the Daytime Emmys have never been very logical. . . .

I am pulling for Casey Moss. I think he is terrific playing all the facets of JJ. The suicide episode was riveting. All of his work during the Theo shooting story was outstanding. Good luck Casey!!!!!!!!

Hudson West (Jake, General Hospital)

Gotta go with Casey Moss here. JJ’s been through a lot of shit in the relatively short time he’s been in Salem, and he usually knocks it out of the park, especially this recent storyline with Theo’s shooting. (and the after effects of that whole mess – Lani’s pregnancy and all that – might already have next year’s nomination wrapped up for him)

Gotta say that Casey Moss was riveting in his portrayal of someone contemplating suicide.

Lucas Adams lights up the screen in every scene, even if I don’t agree with some of the decisions that he has been forced to show his character making.

As a side-note, I guess it’s only fair for Chandler Massey to leave some of these awards for other actors occasionally. 😉 (I’m also wondering what the heck happened to the chemistry that Chandler clearly showed in every scene with every other actor during his previous enlistment.)

Hudsdon West makes me wish they had a Child Category. He is SO good, and very reminiscent of the young guy who played Brandon on Santa Barbara whowon an Emmy in this category. These young categories, with only four soaps, are so weird because they are filled with young people, some of whom would never be nominated in a million years if the playing field wasnt so small. I REALLY like Tristan as Reed. Although he hasn’t had major story, he just has that IT factor that separates young actors from future stars. Casey had some very challenging material and delivered it well, although I feel he should have won in this category a few years ago. This category is entirely incomplete without Kyle who played Theo on Days. In the aftermath of his shooting and coma he delivered some amazing and heartbreaking work! He made some understated and unusual acting choices. He played his part with heart and sincerity that brought me to real tears more than once! He was robbed and should have won!!

“… This category is entirely incomplete without Kyle who played Theo on Days. ”

absolutely – the “firing” of Kyle.. because of an immature leak and/or mistake… was simply that

I’ve posted – NO ONE CARES what leaked… WE, THE AUDIENCE, just want, GOOD story. that has been asked and answered… DAYS is ON top.

simply put… our mindset, in this industry…. just want the show to go on. Firing Kyle Pettis , is WRONG. he is an excellent actor

NBC / Sony / DOOL – have their standards ? LOL sigh

Kyle was not even in the pre-nom list. so that answers that.

what a mistake. any way… like you… I teared up multiple times.

I MISS Lexie son : Theo

I’m really only familiar with Casey Moss (JJ) and Hudson West (Jake)-both are great. Casey Moss has definitely grown as an actor; and Hudson West has more talent in his pinky than most of the adult actors on the show. Best of luck.

Hi, dmr,
I wish ‘they’ would have a separate category for children actors/actresses. Choosing between an adult, albeit a young adult, and a child is sort of discombobulating….does not jive.
Little Hudson is a natural….quite a dilemma. This child is on his way to greatness, as an actor, if he sticks to it.
He’s a baby….the world is open to him and his to take…..so many roads.
Yes, my friend, you are sooo right; Hudson does put some adult actors to shame. He never steps over his lines…..never looks ‘staged’ or prompted….his lines flow naturally and flawlessly.
I’m for either, Casey or Hudson. We shall see.
Casey could win simply on his looks, LOL….Hudson on his cuteness. Nah, just kidding…..
Those who ‘select’ the ‘winners’ can be capricious…so, it’s a toss-up, I guess.

It’s Casey Moss’s to lose. He was brilliant in that Christmas episode, and IMO, his reel didn’t even do his entire performance justice (because of all the splicing). If he submitted full episodes like they used to do, the magnitude and the impact would have been even more compelling.

Still it doesn’t take away from what a phenomenal fourth quarter Casey Moss had in 2017.

Carole

Casey Moss, for sure. Not only has the actor come a long way personally, but his acting has improved 100%!

lil’ Jake , broke me, when he first heard that Drew was not his father. in that moment he didn’t want Jason to be. every since that moment… before and after

GH can drop that sugary sweet syrupy run. OK Jake we get it.

I’ll take James Nigbor for shade and because he’s cuter.

OUCH!!!! Both are cute!

Well, young Mr. West is outstanding, especially in his scenes with Billy Miller (Drew), but to me, this is Casey Moss’ award by a long shot. He’s gone from teen eye candy to an accomplished actor who can handle heavy material. The others are good also, but the story and the gravitas brought to it should bring Casey the prize.

I agree, Soaphound. Casey was so moving during the whole Leo story and his suicide attempt. But Hudson is so darn cute (as is the actor who plays Danny. Love these kids!)

Celia

Hi, Soaphound,
Oh, yeah….Casey for the award!! Do you remember how we were soooo ‘iffy’ about him when he first stepped onto the Days’ stage?
Well. He certainly made a rewarding and literal transformation as an actor and as an upstanding Salem citizen. His talent actually ‘grew’ right before our eyes.
I must admit I wasn’t really into JJ ( but always appreciated Casey—gorgeous!!)……and, I thought he would always remain the brat; the angry teen; the trouble-maker….but, wow!! What a jump and leap into maturity he made. I think Paige had much to do with it as JJ came into his own….his revelation into manhood, leading him to recognize who he really was as a person, came after his fling with Eve…..that was disgusting to me; but it did help JJ grasp what it was he was looking for!!
I love both the actor and the character. Go Casey!

Celia

Evolution, not revelation, LOL.

Celia, dear, you summed it up beautifully. But I gotta say…though I was also put off by the Eve affair, I’ve never wanted to change places with another woman more in my life! God, even his shoulder blades are sexy!

HaHaHaHa….you got me chuckling, my friend….you are as observant as I….yeah, Soaphound; his shoulder-blades, the shape of his head, his neck, his arms….hmmmmm….everything!!
My husband gets a kick out of this….he keeps asking me if he should worry? LOL.

Casey Moss (JJ, Days) should win the Best Younger Actor Emmy just for the Christmas Eve scenes alone!

Lucas Adams – “Tripp” son of Steve Patch Johnson… step-mom “Kayla Kayla Kayla”

I love this young man foray in to acting… he’s doing a bang up job. his job is only going to get that much better…

in scenes with HOT off the track, nuErica Kane herself, Cierra Alice LIVES

in scenes with dad Steve… battling his blindness

in scenes with Kayla – this one I want … because they have wild chemistry as mother and son… who are off the tracks and finding their way back. with dad beset with going blind… this will UNITE Mary Beth and Lucas to work magic. Kayla and Steve NEED that familial bond.. and it’s worth all the effort getting their.

I congratulate his emmy nod. this nomination is warranted. KEEPER

Taken from Wiki : Moss began his acting career on May 3, 2013, by joining the NBC soap opera, Days of Our Lives.

from the get go he turned –

it was he that kept his family forefront: mom Jenny Bear, and sis Abs.

he was electric with Kassie DePaiva : what ? daresay you ? this young buck with megawatt Kassie DePaiva . go their… it was that HOT.

JJ is now back in the drivers seat… Thanks to , Ron Carlivati.

he’s a riveting act. let’s call him James Dean. that sensitive portrayal of , shock and hurt, hard knocks of “that” cop who shoots an unarmed man. his betrayal from Lani.

yeah, he can act. loved him from day 1. I look forward to the emmy excitement , for : @DAYS of OUR Lives. YES !

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.

Chandler Massey Talks More On The DAYS WilSon Departure On The Freddie & Alyssa Show

As promised by Freddie Smith (Sonny, DAYS) earlier in the week, his on-screen co-star,  Chandler Massey (Will)  was the special guest on the Freddie & Alyssa Show.  The podcast spend most of the episode giving Chandler and Freddie’s perspective of what happened and how they found out how they were being written-off Days of our Lives as beloved couple, WilSon.

While Freddie and Chandler do not in any way reveal what happens in the final six episodes they taped, or what was contained in the scripts, Chandler expressed  that it wasn’t until they received the six and final script of their promised six episodes, when the show resumed production after its long hiatus, that they realized what was happening.

During the podcast, both men talked about their disappointment of being written-off the show; saying that have always been good employees doing what the soap had been required and requested of them throughout their time on the NBC daytime drama series.

Check out more below on the podcast.

So, what do you think of the sentiments shared by Freddie and Chandler in this discussion on their departure from DAYS? Comment below.
