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 OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

DAYS Kate Mansi Learns The Ropes Of Directing A Multi-Cam Soap In New DOOL App Series

She has won a Daytime Emmy for her stellar performances as Abigail Deveraux, but now as many know, Kate Mansi has been spreading her wings as a director behind-the-camera.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
