Since Days of our Lives tapes four months in advance fans have been waiting for Intel on when two-time Daytime Emmy winner Chandler Massey will last be seen as Will Horton and when the new Will, Guy Wilson will step into the role on-screen, even though backstage he has been playing the role for the last few months!

On-Air On-Soaps heard the news last week that Chandler’s last air date is January 2nd, while Guy Wilson debuts on the January 8th episode of the long running NBC soap opera!

What viewers can anticipate when Guy Wilson premieres is that there is some very exciting story ahead for Will.  And of course, everyone is waiting to see if Guy has palpable on-screen chemistry with Freddie Smith who plays Sonny, Will’s boyfriend!

So, are you ready to say farewell Chandler and welcome Guy to the role of Will?  Let us know!

I was wondering when this would happen. Thx!

my first thought… ie: current storyline….

that the ‘big” surprise party… Will thinks Kate, Sammi, and Gabi… “are” planning… this will be the big surprise reveal…. tada! it’s the nuWill.

Not looking forward to this. Looks like the end of Will/Sonny for me, especially if they’re doing a wedding without Chandler

I will miss Chandler Massey at his best, but his best was several months back. He created a messy situation and lost his spark. Chandler’s constant grin bothered me, but in the end even that will be missed until Guy makes the role his own. Guy should have no problem when compared to the uneven performances by CM these last few months. Chandler lost interest and Guy should be excited about HIS new role.

Good luck Chandler!

I will really miss Chandler. But I am willing to give Guy the best chance to settle into the role before I make my judgments on his part as Will. I know he has the acting chops, though.

Because Chandler Massey was so popular – I wonder if DAYS didn’t encourage / direct o some lackluster performances. Massey always gave it his all in the past. While they finished filming for him in August. They are still airing him until end of year. Guy Wilson would have been a wildcard. He will be there for Feb sweeps. Good risk management for Days. if Guy Wilson catches fire if not – they have delivered the wedding – even if they move on from Wilson as front burner.

Guessing Massey’ s salary went to hire Daniel Cosgrove as new character to interact with established 30/40 cast and a new story to boot. All good.

I like CM, but agree that there were times when he was smiling in scenes and did not understand.

So Long, CM; Good Luck! in your new endeavors. Welcome! GW.

I think the character of Will should be written out to depart when Camilla Banus leaves. I think Days lost an opportunity when the character of Will was written ti be gay. Will and Gabi should have remained a heterosexual couple and become that generation’s “Tom and Alice Horton”. They could have used a different chracter as a gay person and not Will Horton.

So as far as I am concerned, Will can leave town with Gabi and the baby.

Nathan should come back. He looks like a suitable heir to be the next generation’s Tom, with Melanie as his “Alice”.

I know I’m in the minority here but I’m looking forward to the recasting. Since Chandler announced he was quitting the show; a smirk has become the main trademark of the character and frankly I’m tired of looking at it. I wish him the best in future endeavors and welcome the new actor to the role.

DAYS Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

Through all of the emotional drama, Banus sustained a level of performance that is no easy feat. That is why Michael Fairman TV names Camila’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

Let us know if you agree with our pick, and what you thought of Camila’s performances, and what you think Gabi might do next, via the comment section below.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
