DAYS Christopher Sean & Hira Ambrosino Talk Narita Family Secrets, PaulSon, Coming Out Scenes & More!

On NBC’s Days of our Lives, Tori Narita (Hira Ambrosino) has come to Salem, and it appears she shares a past with a certain someone! Could that someone be Paul’s (Christopher Sean) father?

The Narita family secrets are set to explode or implode in the weeks ahead, coming right on the heels of the revelation that Paul slept with Will Horton (Guy Wilson)! And due to that one misstep, both men may have lost the love of their lives, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith)!

Now Sonny has taken a break from Salem to clear his head; following his almost near death experience and reeling from the betrayal of his husband, Will!  When Sonny returns will he try to make his marriage work with Will?  He might not after he finds out how Will and Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) are in collusion to get Paul Narita out of their lives and out of Salem!

On-Air On-Soaps sat down with the mother/son on-screen team of Hira Ambrosino and Christopher Sean for this new video interview. During the conversation, Hira and Christopher weighed-in and shared their thoughts on a myriad of key topics including: the heartbreaking and groundbreaking coming out scenes, where Paul admits to his mother and his grandfather he is gay, that was also dubbed with Japanese sub-titles – a first for daytime.  Plus, what do they think of a desperate Will’s attempts to keep his husband away from Paul, and how that will affect Tori and Paul’s lives forever?  In addition, the duo tease just who might be Paul Narita’s biological father? Is it John Black (Drake Hogestyn) as DAYS fans have suspected … or, is that a red herring and it is truly someone else? Is Tori team PaulSon and going to be supportive of her son and his happiness and he tries to get Sonny back … or is she against it?  Find out in this chitchat with two stars who are quickly becoming more intrinsic to the Salem canvas.

And while Christopher is making temperatures rise on Days of our Lives, he can also be seen this season on CBS’ Hawaii-Five-O where he is playing quite the opposite of Paul Narita … in fact, he is playing quite the bad guy!  Christopher fills us in on pulling double duty on two notable television series.

Watch Christopher and Hira chat with Michael Fairman below! Then share your thoughts: Who do you think is the father of Paul Narita? What do you think about what Will is trying to do to Tori? Are you rooting for PaulSon or WilSon after you have witnessed what has transpired on-screen this week? Comment below!

Super happy with the addition of Paul and Tori to Salem!

I wonder if Paul’s father KNOWS he’s Paul’s FATHER..

Nice interview and nice arms Christopher. Wow!

…if I may…. “nice” every thing

Looks like Christopher is in bulk mode! Would love to see John Black be the father of his character. More than that…. would love for Christopher’s acting to be recognized by the Academy at the next awards show.

John, is Paul’s father. I am almost sure. Why else would Paul’s mother react to John the way she did.
I absolutely love everything about Paul….his looks, his honesty, his character.

I have a deep feeling that Stefno is Pauls father!!

@Shy.
Hmmmm….I didn’t even think about that possibility. Ergo, the reason why Will was asking questions about the DiMera mansion and who lived there at the time.
Good assumption, Shy.

Paul another Dimera???

Yeah, I’m wondering if DAYS is pulling the notorious red-herring thing GH did with who is Fluke by making us all think John is Paul’s daddy.

So, maybe, it’s a character connected to John, what about Roman??? Wasn’t there a whole identity thing (in the 80s/90s) between Roman and John? What if Roman (Will’s grandpa), is Paul’s bio-Dad, maybe, Tori thinks it’s John Black, but it turns out to be Roman!

I just wish i knew who John really is once and for all…after ‘ he is Roman’ then he wasnt…then he is a Priest…an Alamain…a Brady…then not a Brady…i cant recall anymore who John really is…lol…we’ll probably never find out…as for Stephano-he seems to get new children for the next generation every decade-there were Tony and Megan, then adopted Peter and Kristen and bio daughter Lexi, and for todays younger viewers there is now Chad and maybe Paul…instead of another Stephano Dimera child id rather they age his grandchildren…it would be nice if Roman got a storyline of his own and Paul was his or even Abes but Paul could be Johns…however, i think he is a Dimera…maybe Tori recognizes John because off screen John might know her as one of Stephanos many lovers…im not too happy with some newbies but i think Paul and his mother are fine additions to the cast!!!

@JimH and faithful

I have finally relented… Nicole DOES talk too much to herself !

it crossed my mind… with the new regime… ie: head writers and executive producers.. etc….

“Fay IS alive”

she would do wonders for Nicole

as well as: Abe, Roman, Stefano, Victor… heck… even John Black

give Nicole.. a family

give these stalwart mens libido intrigue and va va voom… “I love them”

@ jimh – I would actually LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Wayne Northrop be Paul’s father. He was original Roman, Dr. Alex North, (who I vaguely recall that character), but look wise, I could definitely see Christopher Sean and Wayne Northrop sharing similar facial features. Maybe, Wayne will return for the 50th and reclaim the Roman role or, return as Dr. Alex – which could also explain Tori’s big background check on the doctors who all work at Salem University Hospital. I wonder if also, Serena could be connected to Dr. Alex (in regards to that “research” job she’s been doing at the hospital). I think it would be brilliant to bring back fan-favorite Wayne Northrop as Paul’s dad, either as Roman #1 or Dr. Alex. And, somehow, someway, that mean, mean, mean, mean Stephano DiMera is connected to Wayne’s character.

DAYS bring WAYNE back! Can you imagine that quad-angle for Marlena? John, Roman #2, Roman #1/Dr. Alex (Wayne)

It would be nice if Wayne returned as Roman if he’d want to…then Josh could resume his old Chris K.(cant remember how to spell last name) and Chris could be Rory’s long lost father…tptb should expand Rorys role!!! However, Wayne couldnt be Roman and Pauls father because that would mean Paul slept with his half nephew Will…but Alex North(however, this character was an epic fail) could be Pauls father…this way Serena could also be Alex’s daughter giving Paul a half sister…Alex could turn out to be another son of Stephanos???

i want paulson 🙂

Same here, dana. Love their easy connection.

Even though it will probably come out that John is Paul’s father I think making Lucas the father would be excellent and provide lots of soap drama. Not only would the half brothers have had sex but now Lucas would be torn over which son to support in the Will/Paul/Sonny triangle. We know Lucas has spent a lot of time in Singapore and it would not be a stretch that he & Tori met there or on a trip to Japan.

Although drama wise that sounds interesting, there are two flaws. First the time line is all wrong. Lucas already had Allie went he went to Asia, and she is still a child. If he hooked up with Tori then Paul wouldn’t be as old as he is— plus Lucas had Will when he was in his teens– so he would had to slept with Tori at that time or earlier to make Paul the same age or a bit older than Will, which is highly unlikely. The second flaw is incest even unintentional is taboo on daytime television– the fact Paul did sleep with Will has pretty much rule out any possibility of Lucas being Paul’s father. Your story idea is not PG enough for daytime, but who knows a cable show might do an incest triangle some day.

Actually Sami Brady was the teen parent and not Lucas, when Lucas arrive in Salem he was in either the Navy or national guard and he Lucas was around Carrie Brady age when he first arrive this would have been in the early 1990’s Sami had well in the spring of 1995 while in high school or right after.

Days once was close to an incest storyline in the 1960s…Marie Horton dated Mark Brooks who turned out to be her missing brother Tommy Horton(he was in the war, got new face ect.)…and this is what led her into becoming a nun…but i do doubt they’ll do that with Will and Paul…Days used to be known for its taboo controversial storylines but seems like they fear going there today…its now just musical beds and recycled plots involving the Dimeras…jmo!!!

@Sandy J– Lucas didn’t go to a regular high school Kate had sent him to military school and he had just graduated from there when he came to town. He was never in the navy or the coast guard. Sami was in her early teens, Lucas was in his late teens- twenty at the most.

Am I the ONLY one who thinks the storyline is a bit lame? It’s the typical soap opera “he doesn’t know that so and so is the real father” nonsense that soaps have been doing forever. Plus, I don’t know, I feel the actress who is portraying Paul’s mom is not terribly convincing – then again, the writing is so astonishingly infantile I feel sometimes like a seventh grader wrote it. Is this the BEST they can do? Also, they surely beat a dead horse on this show, how many times do they have to hit you over the head with Will declaring “you slept with my husband” ? Get ON with it already – I’m sorry, I just feel the show is draggy – I know it’s a soap, I know it’s filled to the brim with cliffhangers but even at that they need to pick up the pace.

“… with two stars who are quickly becoming more intrinsic to the Salem canvas. ”

I just love this mother/son duo

I hope… beyond hope… that it’s John Black…

what an explosive storyline… FINALLY

for John and Marlena

this is an exciting times

because the whole cast that surround this story line.. is bringing their A game
and… I guess that has to include Guy Wilson… but the whole story and all the actors are sublime

Don’t tell me–Tori was Stefano’s lover and Paul is his son.

I find the behaviour of Will and Lucas despicable. If Will wants to save his marriage he needs to find some humility while accepting responsibility for what has happened. How dare he threaten to expose Paul’s mom. Lucas needs to mind his own darn business and stay out of this.

Oh you must be new ….Will is acting like he always acted, he blackmailed people before (EJ) so there’s nothing new here … It’s a SOAP goody two shoes are boring! I’m all for a spicier Will 🙂 Lucas needs to mind his own business? Really? I wonder if you were that upset when Adrienne was all up in Sonny’s business …

Uh hardly new. I’m a 50 yr watcher. Will is nothing more than a manchild having a temper tantrum. He isn’t even close to being as conniving as his mother at his age. He is an embarrassment and his father is a close second. Lucas has always been the voice of reason and now he is stooping to a low where he’s never been before. Adrienne has a reputation for minding everyone’s business but her own so I expect it from her.

Gotta agree with you completely, Sheila. Will’s behavior has turned him into a character that I don’t recognize. Where is the Will who everyone described as sweet-natured, charming, with a good heart? This petulant version of Will makes me glad that Chandler left the show, as it would be painful to watch him ruin his portrayal the character in such a manner. (Although, I’d expect Chandler to imbue the same exact scripts with a much fuller sense of meaningfulness, genuineness, and relatability.)

Lucas, however, is true to form. His bulldozer conversation with Paul, taking complete control of the agenda, permitting no conversational deviations, and then summarily dismissing Paul, was exactly like Lucas’s separate conversations with Sonny and Will, when his agenda then was objecting to Sonny was taking advantage of Will’s sexual inexperience.

I loved the interview. Hira and Christopher appears to have natural chemistry. I loved the coming out scenes between Paul, his mother and especially his Grandfather. I to wonder if the writers are fooling us with the possibility of John being Paul”s father? There has to be a reason for to had been so close to the Dimera home in that picture? I don’t think Stefano is the father he already, so many kids over the years.

I hope not… it MUST and should be John Blacks son… as this would give

John and Marlena have a storyline

John and Marlena are alive and well… not without tumultuous behavior

YES !

I loved the scene with Aiden, John, and Paul… as Aiden and John are smitten with Paul… and asking his help in raising money for a little league team to earn monies

you know… it was just inviting… that John… w/ Aiden… are telling Paul… in this town.. with your valiant turn… at coming out.. have even more support than you realize

YES

Kudos

LMAO! I’ll just ditto this whole post and thank you for saving me a lot of typing! I’ve thought for the longest time that John was in boarding school with a baseball scholarship before Stefano kidnapped him and had him take over Roman’s life. We’ve seen John’s pitching arm on screen in the early 90’s so it would explain where Paul got that DNA from. We also don’t know much about John’s life before he showed up in Salem so this is perfect! Ditto on John and Aiden’s scenes too, I was laughing so hard at those two fanboying over Paul, too cute for words! I hope the writers have John and Aiden hang out together more often since John will be Aiden’s son’s coach for little league, I really enjoy their chemistry and John needs more friends! Drake and Daniel are a lot of fun to watch!

IMO Paul’s baseball life is patterned after Drake’s baseball life, difference being Drake isn’t gay and he lost the woman he loved (for a few years) because of baseball whereas Paul lost the man he loved. Drake also coached little league, LOL!

Hi Robert & Patrick,

I too, don’t think that Stefano is the father.

I think it would be so great to have Wayne Northrop return for the 50th or before then, as Roman #1 or, Dr. Alex – and have him be Paul’s dad!
We need a big DAYS vet, Wayne to return for this reveal, and be the father to Paul.
They share lots of facial similarities. More than John (Drake).

The last time we saw Stefano DiMera with a girlfriend on his arm, she was Asian. Perhaps, he’s been attracted to that type for over 20 years.

Has everyone seen Christopher on Hawaii 5-0? He plays Gabriel Waincroft, a criminal who will do anything to get what he wants. The part is so opposite of Paul. It plays both characters so well, which shows what a good actor he is.

he plays the brother of Daniel Dae Kim… a contracted regular

so believable

I didn’t want to acknowledge this… as I so want… him… to stratosphere

hasn’t he tho

and take to Salem

This show really is trying to be “Gays of Our Lives”, isn’t it? Not one, not two, but THREE gay guys tied to a core family now (when we find out John is Paul’s father). Time to bring in a long-lost lesbian daughter for Bo & Hope.

Maybe Paige and Bev will become lesbian lovers! Jordan would have been more interesting as a lesbian…maybe with Abby!!

I’m hoping if Tori admits that John is Paul’s father, she will be able to help John discover his own identity.

I’m liking the mother and son scenes…and the father right around the corner is sure to make the storyline one of the best through the sands of time!

they might as well just go full-fledged gay now and capture the “young and hip” because those are the only viewers they seem to care about anyway.

I think hiring new writers shows they care for all the viewers, including fans of Eric and Nicole.

LOL, I almost forgot they hired new writers! That will help, but we won’t see their stuff air until July at the earliest .. meanwhile, we’re stuck with what has already been taped. And judging by what I’ve been seeing these last several months, there won’t be ANY romance to speak of.

Sorry, but I find her performance is lacking. Please send her away and end this storyline.

I said they were fine additions to the cast but the actress did seem to have some difficulty in her scenes with Will…she was side glancing like she was looking for cue cards(do they still even use them)…on the other hand was the actress really nervous which also helped her performance as she tries to hide her ‘secret’ from Will???

I too found her performance unconvincing and stiff – obviously “the character” is uncomfortable being in Salem but the portrayal just seems too “acted” and lackluster.

“I” am so happy

“Happy”

that a gay feature is televised… “STILL” in this day and age… a realization turns

I know I’ve shared : If I was ever to meet Deidre Hall… i would hug and thank her… and become a blubbering fan

My life is a part of yours

yours has always been in mine

I am a 52 year old man… at last… gay livelihood exists @@@

I was raised by my grandmother… aka: OK.. not unlike… Marlena and Will

my Nonna… loved ME
my Nonna… cared for Me

she was my rock
my salvation
my eternity

she carried me

to see in my life time

certain legislation… giving ME pathways … a walk with

a hand WITH

a like mind to fly

I hope Paul’s father is Stefano or Tony DiMera!

It would be great if Tony had a son…instead of another one for Stephano!!!

jimh, could Tori really be Jasmine… the island girl that Tony fell for when he rescued her on the island after the plane crash in the mid 80’s?

Andre DiMera piloted the plane without the passengers knowing. They were in route to do a tropical photo shoot for Anna DiMera designs. After the plane crashed everyone thought Andre was Tony and Tony was being nursed back to health by Jasmine. Daphne DiMera died from injuries sustained from the plane crash. The other passengers were Bo, Hope, Eugen, Caliope, Liz, Carlo and Anna. Roman showed up because the Island belonged to Stefano and Roman fell off the cliff and was thought to be washed away by the sea. You must remember Roman “dying” in his brother’s arms? Jasmine came back to Salem and became a Model. Tori can really be Jasmine or Jasmine’s sister who adopted Paul.

I was kinda hoping perhaps Peter Blake would be the father– maybe Tori was a housekeeper in the mansion– Ole Pete got her knocked up, but she didn’t want the kid to be related to the Dimeras, so she confided in John who helped her get out the country without them finding out about the baby- that would be good twist and might get Peter Blake back on screen for the 50th. However, John is probably the father I mean they both wear leather jackets and like baseball– who needs a paternity test right? LOL.

So, if Paul is John’s son, then that makes Paul into Brady’s half-brother, and into Victor’s grandson-in-law (?), or is it Victor’s step-grandson?

Since Sonny is Victor’s great-nephew and Paul is something like Victor’s grandson-in-law, does that make Sonny and Paul cousins-in-law, or is it step-cousins? That means that Sonny and Paul are somehow related to each other by marriage.

Likewise, Will’s maternal grandmother Marlena was married to Victor’s son-in-law John, and Will’s paternal grandmother Kate was married to Victor, which makes Will and Sonny somehow related to each other by marriage on both sides of Will’s family.

Furthermore, if Paul is John’s son, and thus somehow related by marriage to Victor, then that also makes Paul related by marriage to Will on both sides of Will’s family in almost the same way that Will is related by marriage to Sonny on both sides of Will’s family.

This stuff hurts my brain.

I’m not certain whether or not ancestry.com would be able to figure out the mess of these fictional families.

They should have a ancestry.com for the soaps. They can call it incestry.com!

I love it!

john and victor are not relatives. john only was in the past with victors daughter i think and they have son brady.

Paul was speaking in Japanese to his grandfather; the subtitles were in English.

I think it’s John Black who is Paul’s father then again Stephano always seems to have his sperm all over the place

Please say John is Paul’s dad, please, please, please! I LOVE the fact the writers seem to be using Drake’s career as a minor league baseball player with the New York Yankees, and including baseball in John’s life once again! I LOVE that John is going to get back into coaching little league and love that Paul’s biggest fan, John, could be his father! John fanboying never gets old, LOL! I’m looking forward to seeing John and Tori share scenes as well as more John and Paul scenes!

Could we please see a 20-minute long interview of Deidre and Drake done by you? Pretty, pretty, pretty please? We barely see them together on screen anymore, their fans need something to hold on to..

I really do like Christopher (Paul), he is an excellent addition to the show, and damn is he sexy as hell. He looks even more buff here, I can’t stop staring at those guns he has. I like the lady who plays his mom also. I really like seeing an asian family on the show and they fit right in. And I love the fact that the gay characters are still front and center. I really hope it stays this way.

Dr Mandrake looks like this wahne you all are speaking of.
