This afternoon, Guy Wilson came forth and confirmed on his official facebook page that he is indeed the new Will Horton of Days of our Lives! The casting secret was revealed the other night by Guy’s new cast mate, Jen Lilley (Theresa)  on the Lather Up with Littany Blog Talk Radio series during her interview segment.

Wilson’s post stated, “Yes, I am the new ‘Will Horton’ on “Days of Our Lives”. This is a dream come true for me. But I do have some very big shoes to fill; Chandler Massey’s talent is beyond measure. I’ve always admired Chandler’s work and to now follow in his footsteps is truly an honor. I am so excited to share this adventure with all of you!!!”

It was a very nice overture for Guy to reach out to DAYS fans and share his enthusiasm on taking on the next phase of the character development and storylines of Will Horton!

And now the question that that will be answered over the next several months and in 2014,  can fans accept Guy in the role of Will?  Time will tell, but he certainly has some very strong acting credentials, and we hear from the people at DAYS, that he is quite a nice guy!

So, what do you think of Guy’s statement about stepping into Chandler’s shoes? Are you excited to know that the character of Will Horton will still be on the canvas and not be written out?  Weigh-in!

I am glad they are keeping Will on the canvas, I believe he is considered a legacy character. I seen Guy Wilson’s scenes on YouTube from when he played a gay teenager on a NCIS episode,he was really good. I am willing to give Guy my viewing time. The producers must have seen something in his audition that made him the right choice for the recast.

I’m glad that the character of Will is staying in Salem, and Guy certainly has the correct last name: WilSon!

take a deep breath. cull from your training… your employment…. your job your intent… is to display… share with the world… a NEW character… it’s not you.. it’s intrigue and alluring to be something outside of yourself… it’s your chosen profession… to canvas..the written word. You are Will – and Sonny… is your lover… you have a daughter… ’nuff said… it’s not blowing it out of proportion..it is what it is. the world is prepared for what it is… gay lifestyle… and equating your part of Salem. big shoes to fill… yeah! ’nuff said… it’s yours now… relax and feed… Read more »

There will always be haters, I’ve seen some Chandler fans tweet some nasty, mean-spirited things to Guy. And some of them have also unfollowed Wilson fans who have expressed their support to Guy. So I can imagine what they’ll say once he starts airing in January.

I will wait to pass judgement, but watching his scenes elsewhere, I am hopeful. He is a decent actor. Not sure Will is the right role, but I am glad Will is staying on the canvas too. I will keep an open mind here. Every time GL recasted Blake or Dinah, I was upset, but ended up like each recast better than the last. I am confident that DAYS knows what they are doing, and as I said Guy is a decent actor. Best of luck to both him and Chandler as they embark on their new journeys. Now DAYS,… Read more »

Aren’t they killing off Chad? Think of the horror of the DiMeara family when they realize Chad didn’t want them to know about his health problem. Wonder who they will blame and destroy for that.

I suspect Chad is lying about his tumor to Cameron– we never saw the specialist say he has a tumor. And he seems very evasive about treatments and letting other people know. I think Chad wanted Cameron to believe it so he would back off from Abigail–out respect for his illness. I think Chad is becoming more and more a DiMera everyday– and if I am right and he is lying and is perfectly healthy, then I think they will recast— would love to see Chad challenge EJ for a piece of DiMera empire.

Oooh Mary! I never thought of that! Wow! Now that you’ve said this, I really hope that’s what will happen! Very clever.

The last thing this show needs is a recast of that dead weight known as Gabi. I hope the that fact that Camilla is leaving 7 months earlier then her contract ends is a sign that the show is writing that character out. I pray that they don’t recast that character.

I wish him the best of luck. I’ve seen some clips of his work online and he seems very talented. I love how excited and enthusiastic he is about taking on this tough, beautiful, celebrated, highly important and groundbreaking character. He has the right attitude, and I look forward to seeing what he brings to the role. Chandler leaving leaves a hole, but I feel confident from what I’ve seen that this chap can bring the character to life and do him justice.

I am looking forward to the new Will. I know I should like the character more than I do, but CM has always turned me off. I think it had to do with that sappy, imbecilic grin he pastes on his face all the time.

Isn’t Will supposed to be older than JJ Horton who just turned 18 this week. The new actor looks awfully young in the pix being used. Can he really be taken seriously as a young 20’s gay male? Time will tell.

He’s 27 or 28 in real life I believe. I think many of the pictures circulating are older head shots.

euh..ok..no need to trash one actor to praise another one..eyeroll..both can be really talented and bring their own golden take on the character.

I like GW’s honesty and humility. Hope he does justice to the role of WH. It may take some time but definitely deserves a chance. CM as WH and his chemistry with FS as SK will be greatly missed. Good Luck! to CM in his future endeavors. Hope WilSon retains its magic with FS and GW like it did with FS and CM. Hope FS does not decide to follow his co-star’s footsteps and leave the show. Losing 2 good actors will be hard.

I’m glad they re-cast the role and I’m sure Guy will do fine, but I’m also sure that he will be torn apart for the first few months.
He does have big Emmy-winning shoes to fill after all, but hopefully he will grow into the role quickly and without too much criticism.
Soap fans can be pretty brutal with re-casts…myself included…so good luck to him.

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”

 

So, are you sad that Kristina will be gone for DAYS on-screen after today?  Share your thoughts om this, her final airdate, via the comment section below.

James Scott Comments: “I Will Never. Never. Never. Never. Never, Go Back to Hollywood Let Alone DOOL”

Those hoping that finally James Scott would return to his signature daytime soap role of EJ DiMera on Days of our Lives, now that Alison Sweeney is on her way back to the show this fall for a longer run as Sami, can count those hopes now dashed and for good.

In a post on his Instagram account for his meditation and contemplations Sunday morning Zoom series and website, Scott posed with Deepak Chopra.  When a fans posted a comment in the IG account how they miss him on DAYS and to come back with Sami, James replied, “Hi – thanks for joining me here. Please know that I will never. Never. Never. Never. Never. Go back to Hollywood let alone DOOL. There is notbing interesting there for me. J”

Fan favorite James Scott, who has been MIA from the acting profession for awhile now is running The Whisper Within – and as detailed by the website, Scott explains how he left acting to be more involved with meditation and helping others find inner-peace – “In 2014, after a successful career in the entertainment industry, I found myself with everything and nothing.  I had money, celebrity, and status and the grief to match it. I had worked tirelessly for the better part of two decades to attain wealth and validation, yet no external thing could touch the emptiness I felt and the worthlessness I experienced.  I knew that something unknown wished to be known—something I could feel only through its apparent absence. In my despair and depression, I faced a simple choice: to change my lived experience or to end it. One felt impossible; the other easy I had already spent so much time reading self-help books, attending workshops and retreats, drinking concoctions with shamans, exploring tantra and abstaining from sex all together, dancing and singing, and many more practices, which had done little or nothing to abate the loneliness.

 

Desperate and in despair, still seeking, still suffering, I found my way to an Indian meditation center. I went for a week and stayed for a year. It was there in my own reflection that I found the teacher I had been seeking silently waiting to be known. At first, there was rage and anger, but eventually the intensity of the fire burned low and sadness took its place. I cried and cried until I cried myself empty and something new arose: beneath it all, I discovered a newfound peace. Like a fragrance arising from deep within, I heard the sound of the silence that can never be spoken: the eternal wisdom of the whisper within.  To live from this place is my practice and my path. To inspire others to do the same is my purpose.”

So, what do you think about James’ comments and path that he has now gone down for his life?  Do you think its time for DAYS to finally re-cast EJ? Comment below.
