DAYS Freddie Smith On Guy Wilson's Upcoming Debut as Will: "Guy has definitely put his own little twist on who the character is!"

Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) of Days of our Lives spoke with About.com about the upcoming on-screen debut of Guy Wilson in the coveted role of Will Horton, and what that will mean for WilSon fans!

A DAYS fan favorite, Smith admitted after working for two and a half years with two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Chandler Massey there were some nerves on his half with the Will switcheroo!  Freddie explained,”I was nervous going into it. But Guy Wilson is a great actor and person.”

However, Freddie was quick to point out that Guy Wilson’s take on Will Horton is going to be uniquely his own adding: “Guy is his own person, so he’s bringing something new to the character; his own little flavor.  Will is is getting older and evolving.  Guy has definitely put his own little twist on who the character is.”

So, are you looking forward to seeing how Freddie and Guy slip into the on-screen relationship of Sonny and Will?  Let us know!

This is so funny I cant believe people will actually buy Guy Wilson playing Will. They should have paired Sonny with someone else or better yet not fired Chandler Massey. It will end in tears very quickly

Uh Chandler LEFT, he wasn’t fired! Also it’s not like this is the ONLY exit in Days’ history

Lisa

Right, he had chosen to leave and DAYS found GW so they had Chandler go sooner so they could hire this actor. I’m assuming they felt he would do a really good job. Matthew you could at least wait and see. I am going to miss Chandler too.

Oh he was fired Enrique and you know it. Stop being like all the other out there who believe people like Meng. Noone is blindsided and cries out of utter shock if it was their decision. He wanted a wedding and probably more freedom in his personal life but it was too real for Days so they had to cut him loose before a wedding happened. They cant keep covering up their secrets forever

And just for the record Enrique everyone knows Freddie did a test with Guy Wilson the night before Chandler was fired as Freddie told a few fans. They lied about having a recast in place just like they lied about not wanting a recast. I bet Freddie and Guy didn’t do a chemistry test either thus all this BS about them having to hang out every day. If they “have it” why make a point of telling us article after article that they are friends and ‘tight’ with simply no evidence. Same PR nonsense is simply not going to work… Read more »

When i go to the deli, i often like to try a free sample before i buy the product…same goes here with the nuWill…i want to sample him in the role first before i decide if i like him or not…sure CM is a hard act to follow but us fans still should give the new ‘GUY’ a chance. If you were replacing someone in their job who did great, wouldnt you want to be given a chance to prove yourself a good or not replacement first by showing what you could do instead of being judged before you even… Read more »

CHANDLER HAS BEEN FIRED YOU SHOULD ALL OPEN YOUR EYES A SECOND
I dont believe youre buying all this crap, all those lies, comeone no way that guy will fit in, and hes a homophob, noone will watch, just a few, but not the majority!! so im not giving him a bloody chance, because hes ruined his chances by being a stupid prat on twitter!! that s all, and its obvious that Freddie and him DONT MATCH AT ALL

Chandler announced he was leaving Days before TPTB even knew it(it was his decision to leave so he really wasnt fired!)…he was let go a lot sooner than expected because they found someone they believe is a suitable replacement…end of story!

I think there is a whole lot more to this than meets the eye and wish someone with the courage would just say so. Chandler indicated to me last year he was thinking of not renewing there is no way for a second I believe days execs didn’t know about it before the emmys as I trust him at his word. He said he was going to speak to his family and cast but something happened in Cordays mind do change his mind about everything. This was personal against Chandler and to replace with someone he doesn’t even like is… Read more »

[The ‘me’ who posted December 25th, 2013 at 6:14am is NOT me but I agree with them!]

Matthew, I agree. Chandler was fired. He may have wanted to leave at some point, but certainly not months earlier than his contract’s end and certainly not just at the time when they started taping he WilSon wedding, which he wanted to be part of!

I also agree that they won’t be able to cover their lies for forever! Or probably they will actually, because money talks and Hollywood is still as homophobic as ever. Disgrace!

I’m sorry I’m not looking forward to it. Chandler has put an indelible stamp on the character of Will Horton and I just don’t think it will work with anyone else. Ppl can give Guy all the chance they want I think ppl are going to be disappointed IMO.

And you can “think” all you want but only time will tell. Chandler chose to leave. Would you prefer no Will?

Sammy
Guest

Oh Lisa he didn’t choose to leave please Chandler hasn’t told you the whole story as Days don’t want it to get out there what really happened but they cant cover up the truth forever. And no one has to like Guy Wilson no one he will destroy the character which Chandler and Freddie both no is the ultimate goal of Ken Corday. He wants the gays out of Salem for good

KC
Guest
KC

Sandra this is what Ken wants to screw up everything Chandler and Freddie did to resurrect his show from extinction. He isn’t a man and never will be as he keeps all his minions firmly under his control and doesn’t let the cast speak their mind. He knows exactly why he fired Chandler and why it was Guy Wilson of all people hired and he will be exposed very soon if the media will get off their a**** and to their job properly instead of asking Freddie Smith to lie to the public to save his job

I would NOT prefer no Will, but it should and could have been Chandler, if they hadn’t FIRED him. I have no interest in Guy Wilson and I won’t be watching. He is not worthy of the role. Very disappointing. It breaks my heart for Freddie, but I’m not brave enough.

KC, Sammy – agreed!

Looking forward to the new incarnation of Will. For the negative attitudes, soaps have recasts. It’s part of the continuing story aspect of the genre. Some recasts work. Some don’t. Some of the greatest roles in soap opera history have been recast and owned and defined by their replacements:
Jess Walton as Jill on Y&R
Erika Slezak as Victoria on OLTL
Victoria Wyndham as Rachel on AW
Mary Beth Evans as Kayla on DAYS
Jill Larson as Opal on AMC
John Ingle as Edward on GH
Constance Towers as Helena on GH

Let’s give this new “Guy” a chance.

Jimmy
Guest
Jimmy

I agree, those are all fantastic actors and actresses who were recasts. I’m willing to give Guy Wilson a chance for sure, and I hope Chandler Massey finds another acting gig, he’s a truly talented actor.

Btw, you forgot a few others, like Peter Bergman as Jack, Michael Muhney as Adam and Billy Miller as Billy, all on Y&R; Laura Wright as Carly, Kirsten Storms as Maxie, and (perhaps most shockingly) Genie Francis as Laura, all on GH… the list goes on

SZima
Guest
SZima

I agree…we need to give Guy a chance. Re-casts are always difficult, especially when they happen so quickly (one day it’s CM, the next it’s GW), but like Jared & Jimmy said, many of our favorite characters are re-casts of former fan favorites.

It’s sad when so many people get online and start criticizing actors before they’ve even seen them in the role.
Starting rumors to try to turn people against them is sickening.

Adding in the recast category….

Genie Francis as Laura Spencer

That’s all great for you who have been watching soaps for decades. I only tuned into DAYS to watch the coming out story. Then I got so hooked, because Freddie and Chandler portrayed their character with so much love, commitment, intensity, reality, that I can’t stomach either of them being replaced. And Guy Wilson is the last they should have cast for the role of Will.

One fan less, NBC. But you don’t care anyway.

I love Chandler and wish he wasn’t going, but it was his choice to leave. I’m really excited about Guy stepping in. From his reels on youtube, he seems like a strong actor, and from his twitter, he seems like a really great person. He’s taking on a difficult role, with important ties to the show, and years worth of history, not to mention with a huge fanbase. It’s a hellova task, but I’m rooting for him.

Sammy

Jules have you seen his twitter at all the guy is a racist homophobe and never discusses gay issues hes not a nice person at all. He thinks hes like a God or something but funny how the cast don’t talk about him and only a couple of them seem to want to have their picture with him

That’s a completely baseless, unfounded accusation you’re hurling with absolutely no grounds to back it up. Furthermore, everything he’s said on twitter (from what I’ve seen anyway) says otherwise. He is truly proud of taking on a character who plays such an important role on the show, in daytime, and… Read more »

I just saw his twitter and seemed to embrace everyone equally and mostly tweets about his family and new job. What twitter were you looking at? And who in their right mind takes a national daytime drama role portraying a gay character just for the money. Many a daytime actor has nixed that idea and some have left or just declined a role because of this factor. And why would cast members just randomly talk about fellow castmates unless they’re pretty close. Like Allison and Kristian who carpool to the studio on a regular basis. Recasts, like it or not,… Read more »

January 2 2014 is the day Will Horton dies for me and a lot of people out there. Chandler Massey was chosen for the role because they always wanted to make the character gay and he was the perfect fit. Guy Wilson is nothing but a selfish and disrespectful brat who will destroy what Chandler and Freddie created. I see no point in this recast. When are we going to actually hear some truth from Days at why they did change their mind? They are in capable of being honest with the fans

I cant believe how some people like this Guy. Hes not attractive at all or a nice person why did they hire him apart from to break the couple up for good.

4everDAYS – that’s it isn’t it? People want the WilSon storyline to continue only do because they hope GW will be more aggressive and explicit in the intimate scenes. Nobody cares about the storyline, which sucks by the way, because it’s again a story about someone else, that Will & Sonny are only marginally part of. At the beginning Nick’s homophobic behaviour was interesting and put a strain on WilSon. Now the murder plot is just ridiculous and the they are making Will dumb again. The best part and historic soap/TV moment with their wedding is coming up and they… Read more »

Sammy
Guest

Agree the pic says that Freddie cant stand to be near him I find it so funny that is the best pic they came up with. Chandler and Freddie had a connection of the charts hot but Guy looks about 40 and is so unattractive plus has terrible qualities so the only reason they cast him was to break the couple up eventually. Wish the cast would just stop talking lies and said what they really are behind the scenes or doesn’t the media have strength to report the truth?

Chandler chose to leave and announced it b4 the show even knew…the show found a replacement quicker than expected and told CM he’d be off the show sooner than planned…CM was suprised by this but wasnt fired…end of story!

Sammy
Guest

Actually its not end of story as its not true and its time Michael Fairman stopped with the crap and actually told us what he knows. Chandler did inform days of his intentions long before his emmy speech as several people know this and they didn’t find a replacement before he was fired otherwise Freddie Smith is a liar. Maybe its time to speak to the casting department at days or are they forbidden as well from speaking out just like the whole cast seems to be

Chris
Guest

Honestly, I’m just waiting to hear that they’re writing them off the show. They already have a baby, and now are gonna get married which is a kiss of death on a soap. Camila’s leaving, probably along with Blake, so without those characters, Will and Sonny won’t have any story. They’ll either become the gay Doug and Julie who are only seen at holidays, or be written off. I’m not even upset if that happens, and i wouldve been months ago, but they don’t write for these guys and their characterizations suck

James
Guest
James

Sammy: Chandler wanted to leave and was willing anyway to just let his contract with Days finished itself out. But it was a wrong call for Chandler to speak about him wanting to leave publicly too soon as he’s character is still driving story and the show had yet to even start a casting call for his replacement at the time. I’m sure he didn’t even approach Ken Corday on wanting to leave. As with any profession, you don’t do that behind your employer’s back. He was let go earlier just as he finished shooting his scenes in the final… Read more »

I don’t mind that Chandler wanted to leave eventually but it was handled terrible the whole thing and Im sorry but I just don’t like this new guy at all. If it was someone better perhaps it would be easier. I do find it highly rude though to accuse Chandler of not approaching Corday. Anyone who believes that asshole or Meng over Chandler is not a Chandler fan I’m sorry. They never really wanted the gay story they were pressured into it. But no one should have to accept a wedding without Chandler. Its like how does anyone believe its… Read more »

Had Chandler stayed till the end of his contract this year, then he would be leaving his role while in the middle of a likely continuing story during sweeps period in either February or May which is where a lot of front-burner storylines reach their peak and climaxes. On a soap’s POV, doing the recast while at the height of a heated leading story would confuse viewers so better that they do it right when the story is still building itself up and once they’ve manage to get a good actor to take over. DOOL’s EP’s surely won’t expect people… Read more »

I am sure this young actor will be just fine in the role, if the fans will just give him a chance to put his own “spin” on the character. Give the guy a chance, it’s only right to let him play the role the way he envisions it.

As a gay man I am just happy to see a gay couple on a Soap, I love soaps and have since I started watching GH in 1993 and DAYS in 1995. I was 13 when I started watching GH.

Great post Lisa! I agree with you. There have been interviews with James Scott and Galen GeRing and both were very positive towards Guy Wilson’s portrayal of Will. And Freddie Smith should know what he is talking about since he works with Guy so closely. I do not understand how some of these fans (that have responded to the above article) can be so critical of this actor when his scenes have not even aired yet.

Personally, I think folks are taking this change way too seriously. It doesn’t matter how Chandler left the show at this point. Thing is, he has been gone since AUGUST, we are just getting to see Guy in action this coming week. I Loved Chandler as Will, but the FACT is, Chandler Massey was the 6th Will Horton.

Actually Kevin F, it DOES matter how Chandler left the show. That is the most important point actually. We all knew he was not going to stay on DAYS for decades. But we all expected him (and I’d even venture to say, he too) to at least stay until the end of his current contract, which would mean, he’d still be airing until April approximately. The how and the when he was fired is the key to all of our upset. One day I hope, we will truthfully and openly be told what happened instead of all the crap we… Read more »

How do some of you get that Guy Wilson is homophobic? He played a gay character when he had a guest appearance on NCIS, and now he’s playing a the other half of WilSon. If he was truly homophobic, he would never have accepted TWO different gay character roles–and especially not a long-term one in a soap opera–no matter how desperate he was to earn money.

There is no chance that true fans of DAYS will belive these two are even friends let alone a couple.

A month before its 5th season is set to bow, Queen Sugar has been renewed for its sixth season by OWN as it was announced on Thursday.  The first of its 10 episode season will drop on February 16th.

Set in rural Louisiana and the fictional community of St. Josephine, the series focuses on the trio of Bordelon siblings, played by Dawn-Lyen Gardner, Rutina Wesley and Kofi Siriboe, and their extended family.  Days of our Lives favorite, Greg Vaughan (Ex-Eric), has been previously recurring on the show in the role of Calvin.

Queen Sugar creator Ava DuVernay said of the pick-up to Deadline: “What a joy and an honor to continue the stories of Queen Sugar.  On behalf of every producer, editor, costumer, grip, writer, cast member and all departments involved in making this series, we’re delighted to delve into a sixth season and to bring our beautiful audience more of the Bordelon family.”

After having to shut down production due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it gave DuVernay time to retool the series remaining season episode and to incorporate the pandemic, and the Black Lives Matter protests of last summer and the general election. Production on Season 5 of the series did not begin until September of last year and ran till December 2020.

In a statement, Oprah Winfrey shared: “The way Ava creates space to allow these characters to embody real-world experiences is television at its finest and we are proud to continue this ground-breaking series. I hear from so many people that they see themselves in the Bordelon family, and my hope is that through this kind of storytelling the hearts and minds of people are opened for a deeper understanding and empathy of one another.”

Greg Vaughan shared via Instagram on the renewal: “Let’s GO!!! 🎉💥🎉💥@queensugarown @warnerbrostv #QS6 #breakingnews”
