Now coming to the mothership, look for Christopher Sean (Paul Norita) and Colton Little (Andrew Donovan) to reprise their roles on Peacock’s Days of our Lives.  

As DAYS fans know, Sean and Little were first seen together during last summer’s Peacock limited series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter 2.   

Christopher was previously with DAYS from 2014-2018, before returning for ‘Beyond Salem’.  This will mark Colton’s first time on the main series.

Look for both actors to be back in action on Days of our Lives the week of March 13th.

Just how will their appearances tie into the returns of Peter Reckell (Bo), Kristian Alfonso, (Hope) Steve Burton (Harris) and Miranda Wilson (Megan) who will also all be on-screen and back in action this month? Make sure to check out all the upcoming episodes and find out.

So, glad to know that Christopher and Colton will make a return to DAYS? Comment below.

This is great news! Especially after losing sonny Allie and will. Christopher Sean is a great actor can’t wait to see him on days again!

This is good. I hope they are on contract, though. Seriously… to lose Will & nu-Sunny again is just upsetting. I hope the character of Leo is written off.
Having Paul Narita and Andrew Donovan back is an awesome idea. I want Leo out because I can see a rinse and repeat of him inserting himself into Paul and Andrew’s potential relationship. I can handle love triangles however, Leo has to go. Bye Felicia!

Welcome back Christopher and welcome Colton. Will and Sonny can hopefully return at some point. Zach Tinker has been killing it as Sonny. I hope he’s nominated for supporting actor.

I think the show wrote off Will and Sonny because Chandler Massey and Zach Tinker had other commitments and the show couldn’t have one of them onscreen while the other character was elsewhere.However i have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of Will and/or Sonny especially when the show deals with Victor’s death.As for the characters of Paul and Andrew, maybe Andrew is working for the ISA like his dad and a case brings him and Paul to Salem or other characters enlist Andrew and Paul’s help on a case.

I concur

Obviously they’re back to continue the story from “Beyond Salem 2”, which probably would have been “Beyond Salem 3”, had Days itself not moved to Peacock (Steve Burton pretty much said that was the original plan in recent interviews) .

Whether they will stick around long term is another story. Hell only knows that Salem’s LGBTQ community could use a little representation, with Will, Sonny, and Allie all suddenly exiled to New Zealand. Hell forbid that Leo Stark is the only one waving a rainbow flag.

That’s awesome! I love Christopher Sean and his character of Paul.

I liked the blooming chemistry between Colton Little & Christopher Sean during the second chapter of Beyond Salem, however, Ron Carlivati has a notorious history of writing cliché gay men, and it’s disappointing as he is part of the LGBTQ+ community. Plus, the musical chairs of LGBTQ+ characters is headache inducing.

What Scott (ATWT Fan) said!

Welcome back Christopher Sean! You’ve been missed. Colton welcome to the show. I’ll be tuning in for some Paul.

I am gay, but I find this show’s representation of gay people actually very very unrealistic and even offensive.

They would have everyone believe that of these 30 or so characters of inter-mingling family and friends … that many of them have gay children and grand children. That in itself is not true to life.

Like sunshine and roses, everyone is loving and accepting. No one bats an eyelash. It is all hugs and acceptance and love and tolerance. It is ludicrous.

Lets recap. John has a son who is gay. Sami and Lucas have a son and a daughter who are gay. Paulina has a daughter who is gay. Shane and Kimberly have a son who is gay.
Justin and Adrienne have a son who is gay. Chloe has a father who is gay.

That is an awfully small circle of friends and family. Its like the show is being “inclusive” just because it can. It does no one any favours to include such fairy tale type stories. It gives people a false impression of what being gay actually is.

Family and friends are NOT immediately accepting and embracing … At least not all of them. I found Erica Kane’s reaction on All My Children much more realistic. She was initially in denial and horrified. Only with time did she come around.

I loathe the character of Leo. He is a disgusting sexual predator and is not funny or amusing at all. However, I sadly find him to be the most realistically written gay character out of the plethora of gay characters on this show.

It is somewhat similar to some of the backlash that The Cosby Show faced. It featured a black family that was successful, rich, happy, well adjusted, and solved every problem with humour, love, and kindness. It was not realistic in the sense that it never really addressed any of the issues that face black families in America, thereby making the show feel as if it existed in a different universe or world even. Pardon the spin-off pun!

Sure, it was a comedy. But other shows tackled race issues in the framework of a sitcom. All in the Family, The Jefferson’s, Facts of Life, etc. Some of the best comedy comes from real life awkward situations … And so does some of the best drama!

I know Days is a soap opera. I know it is fantastic, over-the-top, campy, and not meant to be taken seriously. I guess in a universe where people come back from the dead every other week, we should also be expected to believe that every gay character is rich, happy, well adjusted, with accepting parents, siblings, and loving family and friends. That is just not the case.

When gay people say they want representation and inclusion in tv and film, we mean that we want it to be meaningful and important and not just throw away fluff. Unfortunately, for the most part, DAYS’ gays are just that.

The reality of being gay is much different from what this show presents. There is shame, guilt, fear, uncertainty, pain, strained family relations, depression, suicide, promiscuity, experimentation, drug and alcohol abuse, and so much more.

I am by no means saying that those things ALWAYS happen … But certainly more often that not. If you showed me a gay person like one on this show … Who came out with no problem, every family and friend was supportive, no sexual experimentation occurred, no substance abuse issues happened, no discrimination was faced, and they went directly into a committed monogamous relationship, I would show you a liar!

It would be nice to see a realistic portrayal of a gay person, but it will never happen on this show. My question is … if you are not going to include any truth in the gay stories or characters, why tell the stories at all?

This is like a Gay Fantasy League similar to Fantasy Football. Ron Carlivati has assembled his fantasy gay team of all beautiful, attractive, well adjusted, rich people that just does not happen in reality.

There is a lot of drama that could be mined from some true storytelling related to a gay person. And it is about quality over quantity. I would rather watch ONE well written gay character than watch 6 fanciful superficial ones with no substance.

Huh? Every single gay character you mentioned had some significant issues and pushback during their coming out stories. So. NO. It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows.
And all gay characters have to live in angst and hatred for you to feel the character is ‘authentic’? No. Just no.
Leo is great. Period. Perhaps you have a bit of self loathing that you don’t want a portrayal of a witty, smart, yes – campy – gay character.
Just embrace the stories. Roll with it – and enjoy.

At one point Victor was thought to be Andrew’s father i think.So i’m wondering if maybe that could come out somehow now to Andrew and that could tap into the show’s history.

EXCLUSIVE: Jacob Young, Joan Collins and Nadia Bjorlin to Prague to Film ‘Murder Between Friends’

On Thursday night during the Michael Fairman Channel’s livestream interview centering around Jason Cook’s (ex-Shawn, DAYS and ex-Matt, GH) latest movie Four For Fun which stars Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-JR, AMC, ex-Rick, B&B and ex-Lucky, GH), revealed another upcoming film project with some very familiar faces.

Jacob Young shared an exclusive that he is set to direct, produce and star in a Agatha Christie-like murder mystery feature film aptly tiled Murder Between Friends.

Speaking on the upcoming project, Jacob said, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.

Days Of Our Lives

Days of our Lives Star Blake Berris Chats On the Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein Mystery, Working with His New Co-Stars, and the Last Christmas Episode with Bill Hayes

On Days of our Lives, the return of Blake Berris is making for some very intriguing drama, with the audience guessing just which way the story will go.

When Berris arrived back on Days of our Lives, after previously playing Nick Fallon, he was taking on the new role of Everett Lynch, who has a past with Stephanie Johnson (Abigail Klein) and Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu). Only, as it has been revealed, the past he had with Jada was under the name “Bobby Stein,” who from what we can tell was far from a nice guy.

Blake visited the Michael Fairman Channel for a livestream interview this week, where fans in the live chat were weighing-on what could be the truth about the guy – is he a split personality suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder? Did the accident that cost him a year of his life in a coma, never happen? Recently, someone set fire to the beloved Horton house. Fans are suspecting it would have been “Bobby” who is working for Clyde Weston (James Read). Others believe that Everett/Bobby could actually be Clyde’s son. With upcoming therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) about to start, things are about to get more juicy in Salem.

Here are just a few excerpts from our conversation with Blake on a myriad of Everett/Bobby subjects. Make sure to check out the full interview for more.

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character on the canvas. Didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So, we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

What has it been like working with Abigail Klein?

BLAKE: I think she is extraordinary. We start off sort of frosty, or she’s frosty with me, like she doesn’t want to let me in. And then, for a while things are going really well. I just could not adore Abigail more. She’s such a good actor. I could always rely on her to bring me back into a scene and be there in this emotionally, supportive way.

Everett and Chad seemed to be becoming friend-ish, when all went awry when at the PCPD interrogation room, Everett let him know about Elia and Bobby Stein, and Chad let him have it for worming his way back in to Stephanie’s life.

BLAKE: Billy would call us the ‘disgusting brothers’ and that’s a reference from Succession, because all of a sudden they’re just so chummy with each other. It’s like all of a sudden we just had this like ‘Bernstein and Woodward’, sort of dynamic duo. I think that Everett really started to think of Chad as a friend and feels sort of disappointed, and he feels, “Oh, it’s that easy? I just needed to have some other identity and now you’re a fair-weather friend?”‘

In recent scenes, Jada sees Bobby Stein for the first time, and we see you and Elia Cantu share scenes with each other for the first time. What is it like working with Elia?

BLAKE: She’s fire, man. She comes in hot and she tells you the way it’s going to be. I think early on, we were trying to suss each other out and the more we worked together, the more comfortable you get with somebody. I think actors do this sometimes with each other; if there’s spice on screen, you like to keep some of what you have on-screen in your (real-life) interactions because it helps … it helps the work.  Eventually, we just sort of wore each other down and we’re like, ‘I actually totally get you, and you’re great.'”

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character and didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

You were on set and in the annual Horton Christmas episode which sadly marked the last for Days of our Lives legendary Bill Hayes, who passed away in January of this year.  What do you recall of that tape day?

BLAKE: It was the Christmas episode when we were watching Susan (Julie) and Bill, say ‘Merry Christmas.’  And there was something about it that just felt like it could be the last time. I mean, it wrecked us all on set. Bill gets so choked up and there was something really profound about the moment. They kiss each other as they have so many times before on the show. It was just beautiful. It felt beautiful to be there for that last Christmas. He’s just such an icon. Every time I’d see him, he was so with it … he knew my name, he knew his lines. What an incredible, incredible man.

Fans will get to see Everett in therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)? Would you say she is helping the guy?

BLAKE: Deidre’s always making jokes about Marlena, ‘She’s the worst therapist in the world’ (Laughs) I remember in the first therapy session, we almost couldn’t get through the scenes because it’s just so clear that Everett has a litany of very profound psychological issues that he is going to have to work through. He’ll keep coming back. This guy’s gonna pay the bills!

Photo: JPI

Viewers are waiting to see how they mystery of Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein plays out. What can you say as a tease for what’s to come?

BLAKE: As far as a tease, I would say, you have all these characters sort of, trying to wake up the ‘sleeping giant’ in a way. I think it’s safe to say that like if you poke a bear, the bear might wake up.

Watch the livestream chat with Blake in full below.

Now let us know, what do you think is going with Everett/Bobby? What has happened to him in his past? Share your theories in the comment section below, and make sure to catch Days of our Lives next week on Peacock for more to his story.
