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?

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: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?
