Days of our Lives James Scott (EJ DiMera) is the main feature interview in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, so make sure to pick up a copy!  In his chat, the talented fan favorite discussed a myriad of subjects including: the status of the long-awaited EJami reunion, working with the just returned Eileen Davidson (Kristen), and the Will and EJ relationship, where the actor admits he enjoyed working with Daytime Emmy winner, Chandler Massey (Will)!  Below are a few excerpts from the interview!

James on DAYS seemingly working toward an EJami pairing:  “They’re not really re-visiting it. They have never done it.  I think it’s about time, frankly. There is a good opportunity for story there. Alison Sweeney (Sami) and I work very well together.  It’s sort of a fairy tale.  They don’t play it so much now, but the Bradys and the DiMeras have a history.  You have these two waring families, and then this sort of love between these two people who should not really love each other. They do love each other.  Not in a romantic way, necessarily.  They care for each other very much.  I think there is always the potential to have a very powerful relationship.”

James on Eileen Davidson returning to DAYS as Kristen  “She is fantastic.   She’s a great actress.  I feel she’s a breath of fresh air on the show.  She’s one of those actors – love them or hate them, they’re just compelling to watch. They give performances that are very hard to turn away from. That is a great value to any show.”

James on if there might be a family reunion between EJ and his mother, Susan Banks,  played in the past by Davidson: “I feel like that was from an era of storytelling – there was a sensibility there and a kookiness that the show is actively trying to avoid.”

James on missing working with Chandler Massey and that the storyline between Will and EJ just stopped: “I was extremely disappointed. Aside from my own selfish reasons of just enjoying working with Chandler Massey very much, I thought it was a very interesting, unique dynamic on the show.  When you communicate directly with the audience, as I do on occasion, and you have a storyline that overwhelmingly and without exception is praised and embraced by the audience that I have spoken to, it’s always disappointing when something like that is killed.  From my perspective, it’s a great shame.”

So, soapers are you ready for the EJami romance to move forward 100%?   Do you miss the dynamic between Will and EJ?  Would you like to see Susan Banks and EJ deal with their mother/son relationship, now that Davidson is back in the fold at DAYS?  Weigh-in!

Am I ready for an Ejami reunion? Jesus H. Christ, YES! It’s about bloody time! As for EJ and Will, it doesn’t surprise me that Gary Tomlin peed on the parade. That’s what he does best – take amazing characters and character dynamics, strip them of all personality, then stick them in his own ridiculous storylines to prop his own favourite characters and character dynamics, viewers, actors and likeability factor be damned. He kills Jack to get Jen back with Daniel. He has Rafe drop in from the ceiling of the safehouse like Batman and turns the Ejami story on… Read more »

I agree!!! Daniel is no Jack and never will be and frankly Jen is acting like a nut trying to protect him. Would have loved for them to keep Christie Clark on the show for Rafe and see where that could have went. Apparently Gary Tomlin loves writing for Ali and Arianne since those are the only two characters we see five days a week! yawn.

I love your comment Kate. You Rock! Gary and Chris are the worst writers in history. Jack was and will always be an awesome character. Daniel cant compare and I hate Dannifer. Jennifer has become unbearable. Ejami rock and I want to see them together pleas. they have so much chemistry and they sparkle. If Gary I love Safe Tomlin wants to reunite God awful Safe maybe he should have them move to Stepford so I dont have to see Sami flip flopping between three men. That is not good for ratings but Ejami are.

I cannot wait for an ejami reunion! It is about time. James said it best when he said, they are not revisiting….the two never had a chance to explore their feelings for one another. This is going to be great! I hope the writers do it justice!

Oh yes they can drop Ejami Lucy, they can make Johnny Lucas’ son, make Sydeny EJ and Nicole’s daughter and have Ejami not even be any any SL’s together except to say high. They don’t have to be a couple to be drop so u know what u can do with your eye roll right. 😉

Crystal
Guest

They likely would have dropped EJami a long time ago if the majority of the audience shared your opinion because they don’t seem to be interested in doing a EJ/Sami pairing but the pairing is too popular to drop. I believe EJ and Sami being an extremely popular pairing is the only reason why the writers have not have them moved on from each for good. They could someday make Johnny Lucas’ son (or Alli EJ’s daughter) but there’s no way that Nicole can be Sydney’s biological mother. History would have to be completely erased (along with Mia and the… Read more »

First off, I love that photo of James Scott. So hot!! I totally agree with him on all three points he made. Susan Banks should be left in the past; it was from a different time of kookiness and I don’t think Days should revisit that again – not when the soap genre is struggling. Secondly, they are missing the boat with Sami & EJ again by having her rush to Rafe. I like Galen & Ali and they have a nice chemistry but Sami & EJ are much hotter and she can be herself. Third — LOVED those Will/EJ… Read more »

Greatest interview in a while. It took days fucking 6 years to get ejami right and hope they write a compelling story for them. These soaps these days are superficial and just go for adrenalin rush moments and drop the stories. Ejole, dancole cafe, racole,ejill etc could have been as success if they were given the time. Well I guess with safe they were just stagnant and blandered Why Will and Ej were separated I dont know!!! Why get rid of all the good dynamics romantic and non-romantic pairings on the show. There was a lot to explore on that… Read more »

He’s always honest and candid, but never to the point of being rude. I really value his opinion and thoughts. I have said this about a bajillion times but I am SO excited to see JS opposite ED! I think having a sister again on screen for him is very important (RIP Lexie 🙁 ) and as kooky as it may be, I’d just love to see him in some scenes with his mother. All these years, that’s a piece I always thought was missing- he worships his father so much, but that anchor you can only get from a… Read more »

EJAMI is ALL i want!!! Totally agree about the trashing of the EJill relationship, EJ & Will had a great dynamic. This entire week has proven — repeatedly — what a joke the Sami/Rafe relationship is. Time for Sami Brady to grow up and have a real man. I don’t like the way his comments come off, for the most part, James has played EJ as IN LOVE with Sami his entire run. They absolutely love each other, and he and Alison play so well off each other! That’s what i want to see! EJ and Sami, and i LOVED… Read more »

You bet I’m ready for an Ejami story. You might even say I’m over-ready. I’ve been waiting for an Ejami story ever since Sami ran across the hall to get the wrench back from a towel-clad EJ. It’s about frigging time! My only concern is whether Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell can write the kind of love story these two deserve. The material they have to work with is rich. Let’s hope they can avoid the plot-point writing that has characterized their work to date. And, yes, I miss EJ and Will. They were perfect together. Why did TomSell have… Read more »

If I got any more ready for EJAMI, I’d most likely go off like the grand finalle on the fourth of July…. seriously… NO OTHER couple brings me to a dead stop having me drop EVERYTHING else I have to do, in order to watch…. I’ve patiently been waiting for a TRUE EJAMI love story for 6 LONG years… CAN NOT WAIT to actually WANT to watch Days again!!!!

EJami do love each other in a romantic way. I’ve watched the show for many years and I know what I see. This is just a spin Tomlin wanted him to put on it so we would believe Sami really loved Rat in a romantic way. Please don’t insult us. Safe is a joke!

Ugonna Wosu
Guest
Ugonna Wosu

well, he said “not necessarily” in a romantic way. To me, it doesn’t mean their feelings aren’t romantic, but he’s saying whether it is romantic or not, they do and always WILL love each other. They are important to each other, and no one can deny that.

I have been waiting for Ejami for 6 years. I’m beginning to believe that Days is just never going to go there. I just want Ejami to have one chance! James feels the same way I feel. I was devastated when they ended Ejill. It was a HUGE mistake to end that dynamic considering everyone was talking about how much they loved the interesting duo! As long as Tomlin is writing, the show is just going to get worse and worse. Tomlin doesn’t understand how to appeal to the audience. Days made a horrible deadly choice by rehiring Tomlin.

I am ready for an Ejami reunion…they have the most natural chemistry I have ever seen in a soap couple. They should have been a couple a long time ago…not safe who bores us to death. As far as Ej & Wills relationship, I think it was a mistake to tear them apart as friends. They worked well with each other and I miss them. I think it’s time that TPTB start to listen to what the fans want and not pander to their pets. And the fans choice is Ejami<3

I also think Susan should stay in the past. It’s just not her time.

YES I want EJami. Seems like forever but it’s only been 6 years. I also love the dynamic of Will and EJ.

I don’t know who thought it was a good idea to totally flip a story upside down for “closure” but someone needs to sic Stefano on their rear.

EJami is crap. They’ve done awful things to each other, such as shooting and rape, and Sami has never loved him. I hope EJ is with someone who treats him right, not a woman who constantly chooses other men over him.

I and many have waited 6 long years for EJami. I’ve been ready for quite sometime for their lovestory to be told. EJami deserves a chance to be together and recognized by NBC, Sony and DAYS as a true couple in order for this to be done. No more half stepping with this. It’s like we get brought to the edge only to be pulled back again, it’s not a good feeling. I tell you this I will not let Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whiteshell give me some retcon of another couples lovestory though. I do not accept Safe or… Read more »

God, he is hot!! Love James Scott and the character of EJ Dimera. He is a talented actor; his scenes never disappoint. I totally miss the EJill relationship. These new writers are idiots. That was one of the most entertaining, interesting relationships on the show. Also have been waiting for EJami to be together in a real, loving relationship for 6 years. If they don’t do it now, I am done with this show.

Sami is not the kind of girl that Rafe wants. He likes the clingy insecure type like Carrie or Nicole. Sami is too “real” for Rafe. Sami needs to be with EJ. But it looks like we are heading to another SAFE reunion and yeah, it’s sweet, but EJAMI is hot!

B.J.
Guest
B.J.

I’m with you, Cindy. Sami isn’t good enough for “perfect” Rafe, who *never* does anything wrong.

E.J. and Sami should be together for so many reasons, as many have already said. 🙂 I may be tuning out soon, if SAFE continues,
because that, added to Nicole’s continued tricks and whining just doesn’t interest me. 🙁

I’ve been ready for an EJami romance from the moment I set eyes on them years ago. I’ve never seen the kind of on screen chemistry James Scott & Alison Sweeney have together. The Brady/DiMera legacy is full of storyline potential & the stamp of destiny from the Santo & Colleen love story is in play as well. There hasn’t been a couple on the show who has such potential for greatness in a very long time. It isn’t just the chemistry it is the effortless emotional intimacy they share & the way they complete each other & balance each… Read more »

We saw all those amazing EJAMI scenes this year and now we’re being tortured with SAFE. I also LOVED the EJ & Will story and really miss their scenes. I loved all the blackmail and the mentor/mentee relationship! Will especially was so fun to watch as a deceptive character! Right now Days is so unwatchable and I’m not enjoying much at all.

Bravo James…. You always say it like it is…. Days blows (or in James’ terms “kills”) every opportunity to shine and excel…. EJ and Sami’s story is a classic love story; and yet Days insists on the pushing the mundane and the blah… The “era of storytelling” to which James referred is no more… In its place is a bunch of plot points into which characters are thrown whether they are relevant or not…. I agree James… What Days has turned into is indeed a shame….. an absolutely unnecessary shame…. Days ineptness and bad choices verges on the criminal. Thank… Read more »

I’ve got to go with EJ/Nicole. Mostly because Nicole doesn’t have the family dynamics to contend with by being with EJ as Sami does; and whether Sami realizes it or not she needs her family. EJ has always had a more than an outstanding physical relationship with both Nicole and Sami. Although each time EJ did hook up with Sami he had to use manipulation, threats or blackmail. With the exception on their night of grief sex which was pure unadulterated sex on both their parts.

Dmitri

MaeMae – I disagree with your statement that each time EJ used manipulation, threats or blackmail the night that Sydney was conceived. That night was pure lovemaking.

MaeMae
Guest
MaeMae

When stepping back to the beginning of the story line that lead to EJ and Sami having sex the night Sydney was conceived is where the manipulation, threats and blackmail began. To stop Stefano from continuing with the vendetta against the Brady family, Sami had to divorce Lucas and marry EJ. EJ also paid Nicole to help him get to Sami by making her jealous. And we all know Sami can’t control her jealousy over Nikki! Without the vendetta Sami wouldn’t have been in the DiMansion, she wouldn’t of seen EJ with Nicole, Sami wouldn’t have gotten jealous she would… Read more »

My Ej and Nicole are boring and where is the potential for GOOD storylines in this ? Seriously ?

It’s been such a long hard road….I am beyond thrilled Days is finally embracing the EJ Dimera/Samantha Brady forbidden love story!!!!!!!!!! This interview made me feel so much better. I was starting to feel used and abused again seeing pod Sami begging Rafe again. Ugh. It’s almost painful. It’s a double edged sword though because as much as I have YEARNED for their story to be told I am nervous as heck how GT & CW will write this story. I am hoping they embrace… Read more »

Love that photo, they should have EJ wear those glasses sometimes. Anyway, Ejami deserve their day. HEAR THAT WRITERS, GET US WHAT WE WANT. And I really like the idea of Will wanting to be a Dimera in training. A Brady/Horton wanting to hang out with the sworn enemy of both was really good. Shame they dropped the ball on that one. If Susan comes back lets hope they have matured her, so she more normal and less kooky this time. There can be a powerful storyline there with EJ and his mother, if they write it properly.

Nicky
Guest

I agree with James..they have wasted their opportunities of giving the viewers a Great EJ and SAMI LOVE STORY. James and Alison have a natural chemistry that other Soaps, or Shows would pay BIG MONIES…. I have not seen any great love between Rafe and Sami..Sami needs to change who she is to be with Rafe..and becomes a Stepford wife..

6 years is far too long time to follow through with the unforbidden Romance they started they would have had a Winning Combination..

Like James said, it’s about time! I hope it’s not just a tease to go back to Safe AGAIN. I just can’t with that sanctimonious pairing. 2) Yes, yes I do.

I do not miss EJ and Will at all! In fact, I was thrilled to see that relationship finally end! No disrespect to James Scott and Chandler Massey, who are very talented and do work well together, but Will’s worship of EJ quickly became boring and repetitive. I am so happy to see Will paired with Sonny now, although it is obvious that the writing for them leaves a lot to be desired. It’s about damn time the show stopped stalling Will’s love life and started moving the long-awaited WilSon romance forward! Hope they keep it up and do it… Read more »

Ejamis have waited 6 LONG years for their story to be told.Despite so many attempts to destroy it.James is right,it has NOT ever been done,which is absurd considering all the other lame pairings on DOOL have gotten YEARS.Ejami moves demos.It time to buckle down and do this story.You may lose a few people not in the key demo,but I bet you will gain so much more.Ejami are what soaps are made of.Passion,chemistry,fiery and hot.Lets get on with it.

Am I ready for EJami to be done properly? Hell yeah I am! I’ve been waiting 6 long years & the detours Days has taken have been downright horrible. Other soaps would KILL to feature a pairing with the kind of buzz & chemistry that James & Alison have together. The fact that Days has done everything in their power NOT to capitalize on that chemistry for ratings makes me think that it’s like they’re actively looking to get the show cancelled. In a way, I miss Will & EJ’s dynamic because while they’ve parted on good terms, they haven’t… Read more »

They could have wrote a Will/Sonny romance with a Ej/Will business partnership, sort of friendship as some angst for the Will and Sonny pairing which would have make a far more compelling, interesting and multi-layered story for Will ! But no these writers just destroy everything and now what we have ? Some boring ‘cute’ filler Will/Sonny touching hands scenes, awkward smiles at Carolie’s pub..so so captivating, really..

Elayne

PS: JS is absolutely correct in his assessment of EJ and Will’s relationship. Most fans loved watching them, loved EJ mentoring Will, supporting each other, EJ being the big brother he never had and each others truth tellers.

After a rocky start they were becoming great friends.

Oh please, EJami is NOT the show! EJ sucks the life out of DOOL. Can’t stand him. I think he would have better chemistry with Will as his gay lover. JS could play a gay man as well as Chandler does. The term ‘forbidden love’ would finally come true with those two.

Over the last 17 months, there have been 3 writing regime changes, and the resulting lack of continuity has caused Days to suffer. Each succeeding team has work diligently to wipe away what their predecessors had envisioned. To redirect storylines, the concept of “closure” has been foisted upon the viewers. Since Gary Tomlin has returned as head writer, there’s fear for some and joyous anticipation for others. Who will end up being happy and who will destined to be sad is still an unknown. Unfortunately, both EJ/Will and EJ/Sami were caught in the middle of yet another reset. The EJ/Will… Read more »

Ready for EJami? Oh yeah. This intense, compelling, multi-layered couple is way, way, way overdue. No guts, no glory, Days. You were perfectly positioned to tell an epic story post-Daysaster, and ya wimped out. Screw your courage to the sticking point. Tell the EJami story. Tell it boldly. Tell it right. People will come. Look at the ratings before and after the Olympics. People did come. Then you ran to a failed, boring, unengaging pairing. Ratings tanked. Embrace EJami. Save the franchise.

I’m probably the only one here (and elsewhere), but I could no stand the EJ and Will scenes! Fast-forwarded it all! Too awkward and bizarre! Never ever would a real-life EJ let himself be blackmailed by a young boy like Will! That power-play/struggle was just too unreal/unbelievable. And the fact that both actors could not stop smiling all the while they were talking about murder, cheating, blackmail (ok ok I did see bits of their scenes, but only to make sure I didn’t miss any of the Will storyline!), made no sense to me and irked me to no end!… Read more »

Do they watch what is popular in the entertainment world? Do they not understand that people LOVE dark, forbidden, sexy pairings? People have had enough of the goody goodies of Salem always winning.

Ready for Ejami? YES oh YES! James explained exactly the reasons why there is so much storyline potential in this pairing so much angst in the deep rooted connection without triangles. EJami against Salemites there’s enough angst drama that could be so compelling. It makes for great soapy drama story telling just waiting to be tapped into.

This a bit off topic but does anyone know if they are recasting the character Bo? If not I was thinking Hope would make a better match for Rafe than Sami. If that happened, what would their couple name be Hafe or Rope? Also, has anyone else notice the chemistry brewing between Brady and Jenn? I know in reality Jenn is supposed to be twice his age, but they SORAS’s Brady and the actors playing them don’t look that far apart. So I can see them getting together as they deal with their grief. And lasting am I the only… Read more »

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.

Days Of Our Lives

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.
