Do not miss Tuesday’s November 20th episode of Days of our Lives, as it marks the final appearance of Christopher Sean in the role of Paul Narita.  How does Paul leave the canvas, exactly? Grab your hankies for an emotional goodbye.

When Sean was brought on to DAYS, not only did he get involved in what would end up being a love triangle with several iterations. but so much more than that, especially since DAYS tackled a pro athlete coming out, and a Japanese American at that, who feared he would not be accepted by his family if they knew the truth about him.  Christopher won the hearts of so many viewers and cast members at DAYS including: his longtime scene partners: Chandler Massey (Will), Freddie Smith (Sonny), and Paul’s on-screen father, Drake Hogestyn (John Black).

Christopher took to Instagram to share his parting thoughts as he exits the show on today’s episode of DAYS: “It’s been an amazing 4 years with @nbcdays 🙂 I am so honored to have the opportunity to bring Paul Narita to life, a Japanese American Gay Professional Baseball Player. An ally to LGBTQ and Just as important an ambassador for Diversity. Representation is so important because we all have an equal place and we all are an important resource to America’s history, not one more important than the other. Change comes when we understand that. Thank you @nbc for taking a chance with me. Thank you Bruce Evans and Ken Corday and Marnie Saitta, Albert Alarr and Janet Rider, Jennifer Sinclair… the list goes on and on. To all the cast and crew on Days, my extended family, thank you! I’ve grown so much with you and created such wonderful memories. To the fans, none of this would be possible without you. All my love and thanks.  My final farewell on Days… whoa. I will miss you all, my home, my beginning. Until Next Time.‬”

Newbie TAKES : its truly an honor to “share” in an actors venture (s) . it’s harrowing to see them leave the nest.. because i’m selfish ; when a good actor REACHES. My nest is emptying. the “motherly” instinct… have you a nest egg to be of course, I loved the “gay” story… yet that wasn’t all it was… he was John’ SON ; dang didn’t they take meld AND REEL . especially because Drake Hogestyn… was given that chance to watch him be a father. MY ONE COMPLAINT.. had they fleshed out Tori. watching a person of color… soar..… Read more »

After watching his great performance on Hawaii-Five-o, as a killer a few years ago, I could not believe this same actor was playing the sweet, kind, loving Paul on Days. We’ll miss you Christopher, and hope to see you on one of the other soaps. Wish you the best of luck.

“I” – HAD – to YouTube this man yep, he’s got that killer “Instinct” does he not.. my first time watching him outside of @DAYS. You could feel his menace; his focus; his drive. YES Dang, it’s Hawaii 5-0 BIG Time .. he’s got that notch of prime time. his presence the camera loves him has all the requisite to feature LEAD. Yeah.. it was a startling difference from @Paul… which is even more remarkable… Yeah, Christopher right after those couple of reels ended… along comes.. AND I DID NOT KNOW THIS… Freddie Smith and his wife have a show… Read more »

Patrick, Soaphound,et all. This man is such a treasure! As far as I’m concerned, he can play any darn thing he wants, on any show. I hope he’s back on our screen soon.

Yes, Violet, I’d like to see him on Y&R. They keep getting these awful, unappealing new characters and Mr. Sean would be a happy addition for me. He was such a sexy bad guy on HAWAII FIVE-O which shows he can handle anything. Maybe I wouldn’t have to FF so many scenes if he were on!

It’s about time people of all backgrounds are represented; not just straight people who are either black or white. Hopefully this will be the start of more Asian characters; diversity should not just be about increasing African American presence which is what it seems has been the trend.

I loved “Paul!” The essence of sincerity and goodness; he emanated sexiness with a steady, reliable, strong persona coupled with intelligence. I kinda fell for him! 😉

I wish you well, Christopher and will be looking forward to your future work. Thank you for gracing my screen.

Hi Rebecca1: haven’t seen you in awhile… I hope you are recharged on all cylinder. CUTE : “…I kinda fell for him! ” okey dokey… I watched Freddie and Ali show ( his wife ) internet . AND it was “adorable” watching two underlings… entertain themselves in their nest. YIKES .. it made me feel my age. Christopher Sean has a lot of passion Zany AND humble. It’s my dream that he exceeds beyond. I fell too. Happy Holidays

Hi, Patrick! Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. Yeah..haven’t been around “here” too often but I do still pop in. Always good to “see” your friendly, familiar face! 😉 LOL; Made you feel your age? There are way too many reminders in pop culture to make someone feel his/her age. That’s why it’s alway great to watch reruns of The Golden Girls! LOL! If I remember correctly you like, Claire? (I think Ciara is gorgeous.) But I was going to say that Claire was looking frighteningly thin; almost sickly/anorexic. Seems to me she’s gained some weight and looks healthy and… Read more »

49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: General Hospital, B&B’s John McCook and Y&R’s Mishael Morgan Take Top Honors

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.

Check out the full winners circle list from last night’s 49th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.
