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 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.

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….

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: John ‘Unmasks’ Kristen In Great, Soapy Cliffhanger

If you caught Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, head writer Ron Carlivati and company served up a juicy, soapy, delicious reveal to the duped folks of Salem! The backdrop? Of course, … John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena’s (Deidre Hall) surprise wedding anniversary party where at the same location a year ago all hell broke loose … as it has now a year later!

In story. after putting all the pieces together in a montage of flashbacks and moments, John Black is the guy (and Kristen’s ex) who figures that Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) is at the Jarlena party in disguise, but as who?  Through recalling … what “Nicole” said to him, what Abe (James Reynolds) mentioned to him – that since Nicole (Arianne Zucker) came back to Salem she’s been like another person – and Kate (Lauren Koslow) mentioning how Maggie swore she saw Kristen, not Nicole, when Maggie went off the wagon, but no one believed her, things were coming clear to John!

And that to the fact that Eli (Lamon Archey) received a call from Xander (Paul Telfer) who swears he has been working for Kristen DiMera, and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) reporting that bit of news to John, he is hit with the major revelation.  After touching speeches by John …and as Marlena delivers hers about the man she loves, the duo share a kiss, but then John stops “Nicole” and Brady (Eric Martsolf) from leaving the party!

What happens next is soap gold! John grabs “Nicole” and rips her hair and mask off.  Next, Kristen flips back her hair and reveals herself to the party-goers and it looks like it’s curtains for Kristen … as everyone is stunned by the bombshell and we fade to black.  The pick-up of this great cliffhanger was today (Friday), more on that later.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DAYS Promo: What’s Going To Happen At Jarlena’s Wedding Anniversary Shindig?

Coming up next week on Days of our Lives, prepare for drama, drama, and more drama! From the looks of the latest promo for the NBC soap opera, the action takes place at Marlena (Deidre Hall) and John’s (Drake Hogestyn) surprise one-year wedding anniversary soirée, where things could take a deadly turn!

But with the Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) masquerading as “Nicole” plot reaching new heights, Anna DiMera (Leann Hunley) and Tony DiMera (Thaao Penghlis) back in Salem, and the promo telling viewers “For one guest, the party, is over” followed by Sonny (Freddie Smith) yelling, “She’s got a gun!” and Brady’s (Eric Martsolf) ending line, “Oh, my God!” there is plenty to conjecture.

Also seen in the teaser is Kate (Lauren Koslow) trying to rip off the face of Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), and Stefan (Brandon Barash) and Gabi (Camila Banus) getting hot and heavy and Eric (Greg Vaughan) yelling, “No!”

So, check out the promo below and then let us know via the comment section below, what you think is about to go down at Jarlena’s party, where last August at their nuptials … things did not go off without a hitch, either!
