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… Read more »

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

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.
