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.‬”

I am so very sorry to see him go. Christopher does an wonderful job portraying Paul. I have enjoyed watching Paul’s personal growth journey. Christopher’s performance is always genuine and sincere. I will miss him terribly.

Congratulation Christopher on a job very well done. I wish you nothing but the best in the future.

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.. yes, on daytime. Christopher Sean, made an indelible impact.. AND I WANT HIM BACK. I’ve read nothing and heard nothing but GOOD. his acting choices his quick natural response .. his body language plus script as he shared with his co-workers.. that’s an innate sense.. that the camera catches

was he written in to a corner… sans Sonny ? was the actor himself.. READY TO MOVE ON? He was so well written and cared for that it just didn’t seem to matter that he played a gay man

@DAYS has the best character newbies… ie: marci miller, kate mansi, the new Cierra, tripp, Claire, Ben.. who left and returned… along with still missing Theo.

@DAYS seems to be taking some hits…and respectively… since DAYS is so well produced, written, directed, WITH the best scripts… I keep watching and moving forward with the show

I LOVE TO BITS :

Eileen Davidson
Stephen Nichols
Christopher Sean
Marci Miller
Kate Mansi
STacy Haiduk
Ari Zucker
Ali Sweeney

YET DAYS is still swinging the pedulum… trigger, all the beats played REEL with so much HEART

IS THE RUMOUR MILL – turning … I hope it’s not true about my other underling… Billy Flynn… keep your nest egg going… I Need you

I HAVE ONE TRIVIA : because I cant even remember his name… he hasn’t been on in so long.. he was Will best friend… the one friend that didn’t accept Will coming out.. and this FANTASTIC ACTOR, had to portray homophobia.. and just tore in to it.. the guy with the dazzling eyes who was in Will and Sonny wedding.. stood up for Will @his wedding… he was in the clip that DAYS APP for the passing of Peggy McKay. THIS IS THE ONE GUY that Ron Carlivati should consider bringing back… he brought so much easy going charismatic SENSE OF HUMOR !!!! who was he ????

My Christopher Sean : be well… take care… I adored Paul, with John and Marlena.. SEE HOW STRONG a character he proved to be… just so stoked my heart to see ^^^ thee John and Marlena.. get that strong connect .. because they were featured so well meshed.

I’m going to miss you… I sincerely hope the door should be kept welcome back … REEL

I can’t even write about Marci Miller – AND – Eileen Davidson… too close to my heart… harrowing / reeling / heart tugged

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 going on…. what a delight

LOL makes me realize just how “older” I am than… I could be his grandfather… AND I’d love it

@Christopher ; you shared what drives you : accomplishment. for me.. you’ve done that and more.. even if it took upwards of a decade. STARRING in daytime and primetime… WELL DONE SIR. you blew me away with another side of you.

As I’ve shared many a time : the percentage are few. WIDE FAN BASE LOADED WITH COLOR.

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 oh-so-pretty. Who has eyes like that??!!! They look like the big eye’d art of Margaret Keane. (google if not familiar; you’ll see what I mean.)

🙂

Paul was too good for Sonny and Will. Glad he had a nice write off, happy that it was with his father and brother.

Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment said in a stateement: “Angelica McDaniel championed our daytime series line up with creativity, passion and energy and broke new ground by helping launch the Network’s first daytime talk show in years while respecting the long history and tradition of the dramas and game shows. We appreciate her many contributions and wish her well on her next endeavors.”

McDaniel oversaw The Young and the Restless (who’s ratings have been on a decline of late) and The Bold and the Beautiful for the network.  She also was responsible for championing The Talk to daytime television.  Angelica was promoted over a short period of time by industry standards to her position after her accomplishments.

GMA’s Lara Spencer Says, “I Screwed Up” As She Apologizes For Insensitive Prince George Ballet Joke

After a major backlash, Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer apologized Monday morning on-air during the ABC morning show, over comments she made last week over now six-year-old Prince George taking ballet classes.

In her apology, Spencer told GMA viewers: “I screwed up.  The comment I made about dance was insensitive, it was stupid, and I am deeply sorry.”

Several key figures in the dance community spoke out following her remarks, and Spencer herself also spoke to them over the last few days telling viewers: “I have listened, I have learned about the bravery it takes for a young boy to pursue a career in dance.”

From there, a previously recorded group interview Spencer conducted with three male dancers; Robbie Fairchild (Cats), Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance) and Fabrice Calmels (Joffrey Ballet), was shown as each expressed their personal journey and often the humiliation they felt as young boys when they were laughed at and made fun of because of dance.

All of this was kicked off by Spencer making a comment during the Thursday ‘Pop News’ segment on GMA, in which she talked about Prince George’s  “curriculum”.

Lara said in her commentary: “In addition to the usual first- and second-grade things like math, science and history, the future King of England will be putting down the Play-Doh to take on religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet, among other things.” She then paused which gave way to chortles in the audience and went on to say: “Prince William says Prince George absolutely loves ballet. I have news for you, Prince William: We’ll see how long that lasts. I mean, he might! He might end up … Between the religious studies and the computer programming, I just want to go back to the Play-Doh!”
