You tell it, Deidre!  Billy Flynn has been making an impact as the Chad DiMera on NBC’s Days of our Lives! The young actor was just named On-Air On-Soaps Best Newcomer of 2014 Male for his performances on our year-end Best and Worst in Soaps 2014.

TV Guide’s Michael Logan also has singled Flynn out as a scene stealer in new piece that is online and in the publication this week bullet-pointing some interesting backstage moments from Flynn’s rise to to being one of the hottest talent additions in daytime.

The iconic Deidre Hall (Marlena, DAYS) had this to say about Chad and Flynn’s take on the character:  “Flynn has a ‘sexy sophistication that’s delicious.’ But even she’s torn: ‘Chad’s the kind of man you don’t want your daughter to date but are secretly glad when she does.”‘

So what do you think? Is Chad the kind of man that girls can’t wait to date?  Are you enjoying Flynn’s performance?  Comment below!

I must be missing something because I don’t like him.

I love Billy Flynn/ Chad. He has everything going for him. Looks, attitude, mystery, virility, talent, ….where do I draw the line?

“virility…. where do I draw the line?”

NICE ! prompt

I think he makes a fine Dimera…he’s very sneaky acting and i think what ever he is plotting leads to the tragic end of Jordan…i hope…lol

I took to Billy’s portrayal of Chad pretty much immediately. He was different because the Chad before had more of a pretty boy look and had soft, sweet edges in terms of portrayal, but I liked Billy’s darker take on Chad. And although he isn’t a stereotypical soap hottie, he is SEXY as all get out. It looks like he’s setting up all kinds of people for a fall – like it’s Chad’s revenge against Salem, acting like he’s a good guy but secretly about to pull the rug out from underneath a number of people. Can’t wait to see what happens. A successful recast!

@ Mike. I too, definitely am digging Billy Flynn as the new-Chad. I like him a lot, and he’s got great potential in defining himself in this darker side to Chad. Successful recast, indeed.

Billy is doing a great job as Chad. Love watching him. Sometimes you can see a twinkle in his eye and all you can do is sit back and wait to see what he is going to say or do next.

As a new Days viewer, Billy is the only Chad I’ve ever seen. I think he’s doing a great job playing the layers of the character. I definitely do not trust Chad.

Billy Flynn is doing a great job filling the void that was left by James Scott.

He reminds me of a young Nicolas Cage. He commands my attention whenever he is on the screen unlike the whole JJ and Paige story.

Days is in such trouble. They now are using long time vets to boost the widespread poor casting and writing attempts. Putting character of Chad in EJ-esqe suits.

New actors with little acting experience.. Billy Flynn is not ready for a close-up. Deidre is way off the market. Less than a year ago – he was a financial analyst with WB

Libby…I TOTALLY AGREE with you!!!!! And…it seems to me that it’s getting W-O-R-S-E!!!!! Bottom Line Here: Here’s hoping that DOOL pulls it all together…FAST!!!!!

He’s doing fine as Chad, but now that EJ’s gone, DAYS needs to bring back Peter Blake-DiMera!!!!!!

Jeremy

DAYS….secure Robb Derringer as Peter Blake-DiMera. He just wrapped up on GH as Agent Sloane. Robb would make an excellent Peter Blake.

Chaz

I like him a lot. He is really capable of portraying the darker side of Chad. Casey Deidrick (IMO) didn’t have that edge to him…there was always a hesitation in his acting out Chad’s darker qualities. There was too much frat boy in his Chad.

Gmbenet

Why would a parent secretly be glad daughter is dating Chad? Love Deidre but don’t get train of thought. The only reason I could see for being glad is his financial status. But he is so crooked that it negates his desirability as a beau for daughter. Need clarification please Deidre!

Love love love Billy Flynn as Chad! Better than Casey who played the character. Any scene he is in I am glued to the TV…yummy!

Billy Flynn is as good as it gets for day time tv…. He seems perfect as Chad , hope DOOL can keep him, I believe his is destine for bigger and broader platform….

Alison Sweeney Reveals She Is Making A Return To DAYS In 2020

Looks like Sami Brady will be back in action on NBC’s Days of our Lives later in the New Year, according to Alison Sweeney, Sami’s portrayer.

During a visit on Friday to the set of Hallmark Channel’s morning talker Home & Family, to promote her upcoming holiday film for the network entitled, Time For You To Come Home For Christmas, Sweeney chatted it up with hosts Cameron Mathison and Debbie Matenopoulos.

During her segment, Alison revealed “Sami is back, causing some trouble.”  But she was quick to note that it will be awhile before she is seen on-air clarifying “My scenes are not going to air until next Summer, next August.”

Sweeney promised the viewers and DAYS fans that there was great stuff coming up with her visit.  And if Sweeney’s last few returns are any indication, whatever is cooking in and out of Salem that may bring her back on to the canvas, we know it will be juicy, because when Sami is around the pot gets stirred!

So, excited to hear Alison will be back on your DAYS screens in 2020? Comment below.
