Tomorrow on Valentine’s Day, look for a long awaited very special moment between Days of our Lives super couple WilSon, as played by Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Guy Wilson (Will)!  That is when as previewed in a special interview with Advocate.com, the duo becomes engaged!

Freddie and Guy chatted with the LGBT outlet to discuss the strides, sometimes pushback, and future story for Salem’s duo who carry the rainbow flag proudly.  Here are a few interesting excerpts!

Freddie on the WilSon engagement:  “I’ve been waiting for this since the day I signed on,  Of course, Will said ‘no’ when Sonny popped the question last month because it’s a soap and it has to be dramatic. But when I found out they were finally getting engaged, I was thrilled. Will and Sonny have been a power couple for two years now and in the town of Salem, people don’t usually stay together that long, so they’re doing something right. It’s definitely time.”

Guy on experiencing some homophobic pushback since taking on the role of Will:  “No one has approached me on the street or anything, but I’ve gotten hateful anti-gay messages though social media and it makes me sad.  Not because someone is being mean to me, but because there are some people out there who still have such vitriol for this kind of story. That’s part of why I try on a daily basis to be an example through my acting that love is love. I’ve been a longtime supporter of the LGBT community and when I hear things like that it only makes me appreciate the work that’s being done in the battle for equality that much more.”

Freddie on showing intimacy between two men in daytime: . “I don’t get it. I’m happy that we’re able to show intimacy. That was one of the things we set out to do when we began this story, to show passion and intimacy and make it as authentic as possible – and I think we are. We’re rolling around in the sheets a lot lately. For me, being able to show the full spectrum of Will and Sonny’s relationship has been so rewarding.”

For who will plan this wedding and more, make sure to check out the entire article! And now after the jump take a look at this clip-tease featuring the duo for tomorrow’s episode of DAYS!

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.
