Christopher Sean Decides To Depart Days of our Lives!

Photo: Brad Everett Young

Sad news, Horita and PaulSon fans, Christopher Sean has made the decision to leave his role as Paul Narita on Days of our Lives.

Soap Opera Digest reports that Sean filmed his last episode on May 25th.  Christopher decided not to renew his contract with the NBC daytime drama series opting to continue to pursue more primetime and film roles and opportunities.

Ironically, Sean wrapped his final tape date the same day as the exited Marci Miller (Ex-Abigail).  As viewers know, because DAYS tapes so far in advance, Sean will be seen on-air through the fall.

Christopher who appeared on primetime’s Hawaii-Five-O is part of the upcoming cast of Disney’s new animated series, Star Wars Resistance.

The actor has played the role of Paul since November of 2014.

So, sad to know Christopher has exited DAYS?  How do you hope the story wraps for Paul? Comment below.

This means Sonny and Will reunite…was getting tired of Paul who goes back and forth with Will and Sonny-not a very well written story!!!

Yes, Jimmy, I was just going to post that. I think ‘Paul’s’ departure has been in the works for a while……I got the hint as soon as Will found the journal with the formula to unlock his memories, if you will.
I never liked the triangle either….I can’t say I’m sorry to see Will and Sonny hook up. I have always rooted for them. So happy!!
If you remember, Jimmy, you and I always knew Will, as in Chandler, would be back.

I agree Celia, Will and Sonny need to be back together.

Hosanna to that! It’s long overdue for the Will and Sonny wedding to be re-done correctly, with the correct actor playing Will this time.
After that, I’d be good with the show allowing Will and Sonny to remain happily married, without stupid breakup nonsense. Days could break the stereotypical mold by instead portraying a lifetime-enduring gay relationship.

yeah I’m ready for Will and Sonny to reunite also. I want to see them take down Leo, Kate and the lawyer.

I’ve – been – so, impressed with his working with Drake Hogestyn. the mechanics that go in to building a relationship… the nuances…
they developed a believable father/son relationship… this is going to be sad.

I like them together, too, Patrick. They could have killed him off during the Mateo/El Fideo (?) whatever his name was Chloe rescue. Wonder if they’re going to recast…

Hey Soaphound! Not sure if you got my message from a while back but I haven’t watched this season…my cable company dropped the channel! I’m going to wait for it to end then hopefully it’ll be out on DVD; I’ll take it out from the library. So, I’m not following it. Want to be surprised! Yay! We’re getting emails letting us know we got a reply! I was getting a tad cranky coming here to comb the page to see if I got a reply. LOL: I’d rather do a scavenger hunt in the park! So many good shows ending.… Read more »

Thank all that’s unholy! Now they can stop creating ridiculous roadblocks between Will & Sonny. As for Christopher, I’m sure things will work out great for him. He had a great recurring role on “Hawaii Five O” for several seasons, so he obviously has credibility in the primetime TV world (something which sadly eludes many soap actors) I’d like to see Paul get a “happy” sendoff, rather than killing him off, since there’s always a chance to bring him back in the future. If he was going to die, the best opportunity for that would have been the recent storyline… Read more »

I’m not surprised. Christopher Sean is a very talented young actor who will go places. In my opinion, Paul has limited potential as a character. If Will gets his memory back and reunites with Sonny, there is no one left for Paul and no reason for him to stick around town. He is a grown man and doesn’t need to live in the same town as this father and half-brother. He should go and make a life for himself. I will certainly miss Christopher. He’s done a great job with Paul. I wish him much success in the future.

Christopher Sean is a good actor and a great presence. If he wants to strike out on his own, now is the time. I wish him well (he was terrific as the evil Gabriel Waincroft on HAWAII FIVE-O) and he’ll always be welcome on daytime. Y&R sure could use him!

As long as he doesn’t eventually end up in Port Charles…He does possess that “look” so overwhelmingly favored by the showunners.

I think he’ll be back, give it a year I’d say. I do think he is talented enough to break into primetime but it is a hard road and I can see him missing the steady pay check and coming back like many before him. His first contract expired so him moving on for a bit and seeking out other opportunities is similar to pretty much the entire cast at some point, recently Chandler, Freddie, Kate and Camila have all done the same thing and returned. I think Paul is needed on the canvas. If anything his is primed to… Read more »

Another Days star decides to quit.Um I wonder who will be the next one to leave.I am shocked I wonder if they will do a recast.

And after the shows wins the Emmy for Best Drama and the ratings are great. At least we get actors returning, even if they are short visits like Theresa, Sami and Nicole.

He sees that Sonny and Will is falling for each other again, which hurts Paul. At the same time he hears from his mother that she is very ill, so he decides to leave Salem to go to be with his mother. Also to release Will so he could be with Sonny.

That’s unfortunate. I am ready for Will and Sonny to reunite and Paul would be good for the story since Will has new feelings and love for Paul. Hopefully the show can recast him with a great actor. If not, another guy to add to the mix would be great. In my dreams it would be JJ or Tripp lol.

ChandlerFan

Agreed — an interesting dream. However, most combinations between Will, Sonny, JJ and Tripp would be between first cousins. Of course, that wouldn’t really matter, other than the general ick factor. (I guess if it was good enough for European royalty…)

I hope he exists with a loving goodbye due to his work location. Like how Theo exited due to health reasons far away.

Can’t say I’m surprised. I always knew that once he got the chance to play a character who is gay that he would want to move on to other characters. He did good on the show and I hope he does just as well in any other project he lands on.

I choose to believe that the character of Paul will be offscreen somewhere enjoying companionship with eager bellhop Derrick.

I don’t blame him really for vacating the role of Paul – Paul goes nowhere, does nothing except (although he is likable) come between Sonny and Will – it’s like he’s on the same Merry-Go-Round – an actor wants his character to expand and do other things, it would have been more interesting if Paul had met someone else and Will had to really pursue him.

Paul was the only thing consistently holding my interest. No desire to see Paul hurt again by the Will/Sonny story line. I wish Christopher Sean the best but I doubt I’ll stick around to watch it now.

Anne Heche Memoir ‘Call Me Anne’ to Be Released Posthumously

Following the tragic death of Daytime Emmy-winning actress, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), now comes word that the follow-up to her 2001 memoir Call Me Crazy will be released in January of 2023 posthumously.

Independent publisher, Start, shared an excerpt of the upcoming memoir, Call Me Anne, this week with the AP and Publisher’s Weekly.  The book’s publisher, Jarred Weisfeld, signed a deal with Heche back in May, and shared that she had turned it into a manuscript shortly before she died.

In a statement, Weisfield shared, “Anne was an inspiration to the LGBTQ+ community and beyond. This book deserves to be read by all of her fans. We are grateful to have the opportunity to share her message with the world. While we are very sad that Anne isn’t here to see the book be published we know it’s what she would have wanted.”

During her podcast “Better Together” with co-host Heather Duffy, Heche had mentioned she was writing a sequel to her original memoir, and that ‘some of the truths’ about her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres would be revealed.

Ellen and Anne’s relationship in Hollywood in the late 90’s, ultimately led to her being blacklisted in Hollywood due to the twosome being one of the first openly gay couples in Tinseltown.  In an excerpt from Call Me Anne, Heche shares, “I was labeled ‘outrageous’ because I fell in love with a woman. I had never been with a woman before I dated Ellen.”

Courtesy/StartPublishing

In a epilogue to the book, Heather Duffy expressed that Anne’s, “wish was that this book could help others get to the other side of pain and learn about her philosophy, which allowed her to remain in a life where she woke up each day looking for opportunities to find joy and spread kindness. So, in some ways, knowing her the way I do and knowing that spreading her message of kindness is what mattered to her most, she would be content that the last thing she worked on was this book.”

Anne passed away on August 14th at the age of 53, after being taken off life-support from injuries sustained from her fiery car crash into a home that eventually took her life.

What do you think about Anne’s second memoir coming in 2023? Will you be intrigued to see what she had to share? Let us know in the comment section. 

In case you missed it, Heche discusses with Michael Fairman in a virtual interview two years ago, about her time with DeGeneres and how it impacted her getting work in Hollywood and more.  You can watch it below.

Murray Bartlett (ex-Cyrus, Guiding Light) won the Emmy for his role as Armond in The White Lotus in the Best Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie.

In his acceptance speech, Murray expressed many thanks: “To my P-Town family, I love you, to my partner Matt, thank you for being my sanctuary .. and finally I want to thank my mom all the way home in Australia for giving me the most wonderful foundation of unconditional love and inspiring me to believe that we can all do that for each other.”

Later in the evening, Amanda Seyfried (ex-Lucy, ATWT and ex-Joni , AMC) won the Best Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her performance in The Dropout.  In the Hulu limited series, which is based on the ABC News podcast of the same name, Seyfried portrays disgraced Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes.

In a major moment during the ceremony, Sheryl Lee Ralph won her first Emmy ever for her role in Abbott Elementary in the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series category.

Ralph became only the second black actress to win in the supporting actress category in 35 years – the first being none other than Days of our Lives’ Jackée Harry (Paulina) who won for her performance in 1987 for 227.

After Sheryl sang when she hit the stage to accept the award, she clarified what she was singing about adding: “I’ve been singing that song for years because I think of myself as an artist as a woman, especially as a woman of color … I’m an endangered species. I don’t sing any victim song. I’m a woman. I’m an artist, and I know where my voice belongs. And there’s so many young actors, artists, even kids that think they know what they’re going to do in life, find your voice and put it where it belongs.”

In an historic Emmy-win, The Squid Game’s Lee Jung-jae became the first actor in a non-English series to win iLead Actor in a Drama Series category for his work in Netflix’s South Korean smash hit.

Lizzo shared: “I’m very emotional. The trophy is nice, but my emotion is for these people who are on the stage with me. The stories that they shared, they’re not that unique. They just don’t get the platform. Telling stories, let’s just tell more stories. When I was a little girl, all I wanted to see was me in the media, someone fat like me, Black like me, beautiful like me.  If I could go back and tell little Lizzo something, I’d be like, ‘You’re going to see that person, but Bitch, it’s gonna have to be you.’”

In the top show categories: Succession won Drama Series, Ted Lasso, Comedy Series and The White Lotus, Outstanding Limited Series. You can check out the full winners circle in all categories here.

Now, let us know, who you were most excited seeing take home the gold statuette during the 74th Primetime Emmys via the comment section. But first check out, Murray, Amanda, Sheryl Lee and Lizzo’s winning moments below.

Eva LaRue’s Stalker Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison

In a harrowing situation spanning 12 years, a man who threatened former All My Children, Santa Barbara, and Y&R favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria, ex- Margot, ex-Celeste) and her daughter, Kaya was sentenced to 40 months in prison.

James David Rogers, 58, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John A. Kronstadt for over a decade of threatening letters and phone calls about torture, rape and death to LaRue and her daughter.

Rogers had pleaded guilty in April to two counts of mailing threatening communications, one count of threats by interstate communications and two counts of stalking.  According to court documents, all of this began in March 2007 until Rogers eventually was arrested in November 2019.  At the beginning of his stalking spree, LaRue’s daughter, Kaya was only five-years-old.

According to Deadline, Eva gave a “tearful victim impact statement, telling the judge in L.A. federal court that she has undergone therapy since the harassment began in order to deal with feelings of fear and paranoia.”  She added, “We didn’t know if he would show up on our doorstep. We will think about him for a lifetime. The fear is with me forever.”

The judge has ordered Rogers to self surrender on October 12th to begin his sentence at a federal prison in Ohio.

Eva won a Daytime Emmy back in 2020 for her guest star turn on The Young and the Restless, and is best-known to primetime viewers for her role in CSI: Miami.
