I for one enjoy watching Chandler Massey’s acting. I really miss him on Days of Our Lives. I think he’s such a great actor that he’ll exceed in whatever direction he decides to take. I can’t wait to see him appear on the big screen because of his potential. Good luck Chandler!

Good, bad, or a mediocre actor is irrelevant to me when it comes to Chandler…LOL. I just take him all in. He is so absolutely gorgeous, I could just stare at him for hours.

Gosh, DAYS isn’t the same without him. TPTB must have been totally crazy to treat him like crap when he only stated in an informal gathering he was “thinking about going back to school” after his contract would be up by the end of 2013. Those egomaniacs immediately rushed to that total fail of a recast and fired him five months before the end of his contract. That was virtually the end of WilSon, one of the most successful couples and storylines. Since Chandler probably never will return to DAYS after everything that happened, let’s hope that TPTB at least… Read more »

Every single time I pass NewWill on screen, I cringe and wish Chandler was back in the role. I cannot believe that Days execs don’t feel the same way too.

I wouldn’t want him back now. I hear the storyline is beyond awful and dumb. But I wish they hadn’t axed him before he could have been part of the wedding. I would have watched and cried for sure. I stayed well away from it all with the recast. Chandler should have been allowed to stay at least for the duration to finish the storyline’s arc of Will & Sonny getting married. With the recast it just made no sense whatsoever. And I regret that we never got a dance with them before Chandler’s exit.

I’m so excited to see Chandler Masey on Bad Judge. I wish he would go back to day’s he is so missed. He was the best WIll ever, and the Best Chemistry between him and Sonny. They had the most believeable relationship ever.

So excited and what a better way to start out the new year on January 1st to see Chandler on my screen again. He is a gifted actor who touched and touches many hearts with his honesty and acting. I admin a fan page group on Facebook dedicated to him and Freddie called the Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith Fan Page. He will always remain in my heart and so many as the true Will Horton. He is missed my so many as the character he inherited but owns, Will Horton. The best of luck to him always.

I can’t wait either to see him back on screen and what a great way to start the new year! I wish him tons of success with all that he wants to achieve!

And I hope he never considers returning to DAYS. They treated him like crap and besides they massacred Will. I just hope Chandler has no regrets for the time he was on DAYS, because he excelled!

Performance is all about talent, casting and direction: it all come together in the superb role of Chandler as Will H. His role in ’16 Love’ was boring: the chemistry was just not there. Chan in his live interviews is charming, personable, guileless, and earthy: irrespective of who and why someone turns you one, Chan does it for everyone. How much psychoanalysis he has had, to what extent he is enacting his own struggles, nothing matters because as Will H he was as real as it gets. Having said that, While I adore him, and Will miss him, I think… Read more »

Thanks, Mike, for lighting the last candle: pass my review onto Chan to see if he is up for the serious role of Achilles: then find a ‘Sonny’ to cast as his Patroclus. This role is what Will fill his acting roles to his personality: Achilles is blond and built, but pouty, has tantrums, is jealous, possessive, strong, brave and fearless…go for it Chan…

Although not on screen much in the movie Angels in Stardust when he was Chandler was very charming. Loved him. Looking forward to seeing him tonight on NBC!

This feels like the best news I’ve heard in quite awhile (perhaps that’s a bit pathetic). Every time I see NuWill on the screen, I can’t help thinking that Chandler would convert the same exact repulsive dialogue into captivating magic with just the right inflection, gesture, or timing. As Will, Chandler gave the impression of not acting, but instead actually seemed to be experiencing the events on the screen in the moment. It is criminal that for months while secretly casting Chandler’s replacement, the show wasted Chandler’s talent upon complete drivel, when there were so many wonderful stories he could… Read more »

Very nicely said! I agree with all you said. Chandler will bounce back from this odious behaviour that he had to endure. Shame on DAYS indeed to have had the need to destroy something that was working. I’m glad Chandler is far far away from the show now. I hope he gets decent job offers – his talent and range is obvious. Don’t want to see him being type-cast. But his studies are equally important and he’ll get his time to shine and thrive in due time for sure!

This is a little off-topic, but the funny thing is that the actor playing NuChad, Billy Flynn, seems to be doing a remarkable job. I rather enjoyed Casey Deidrick’s portrayal of Chad, whom I found completely engaging and likeable, even in his supposedly anti-social moments. NuChad, however, seems to be adding a surprisingly nuanced style to the otherwise dreary lines, making the character far more three-dimensional than I realized the character could be. Seeing him repeatedly smile at the most unusual times (much like Chandler), and respond to vitriol with outwardly-appearing kindness has been completely disarming and quite charming.

I like Billy Flynn too. I hope the writers don’t make Chad out to be bad.

Hey guys, give the show a break: they gave Chan a fabulous 4-year experience (from a mop-haired adolescent to a muscular, butch, swaggering, crew-cut stud: went from boxers to briefs, and hair on his chest), and then he was unfaithful: he declared to the world audience he was leaving for a new boyfriend…before telling the boyfriend (and then there was Bryan: Will and Chan are very, very jealous in real life and on screen…recall Sammi’s boyfriends: Chan is even jealous of Christian) The producers sulked, stomped, threw dishes, and is/are now dating a new Guy. This was a first-love for… Read more »

Of course I’m excited to see Chandler Massey tonight on Bad Judge and wish he would come back to daytime, even if on another soap, such as Y&R.

Days Of Our Lives

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

So place your bets on who will turn out to be the murderer via the comment section below and let us know what you thoughts on Mike’s run on DAYS!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
