Daytime Emmy winner, Tyler Christopher (ex-Stefan, DAYS; ex-Nikolas, GH), who was arrested back on November 11th for public intoxication, pled guilty to two counts of misdemeanor public intoxication, according to a report from TMZ.

The report also notes that the judge in the case rejected the plea of a police officer who begged the court to put Tyler into an alcoholism treatment program.

As previously reported, Tyler was booked on his birthday and was behind bars for two days until being released.  The incident happened in Indiana, where the actor has been residing with his family.

For the public intoxication incident, Christopher will need to pay a $440 fine.

In addition, police noted that they had received multiple calls about Tyler being intoxicated since September 14.

We hate reporting this difficult news.  All of is in the daytime community love Tyler and wish him well and want the best for him.  He is one of the finest actors ever in this genre.

Some judge that won’t reach out& help Tyler at least the cops tried

So sad. Wish he had reached out to someone–like Genie Francis, who worked with him and is
so generous and empathetic: she could offer moral support–for help. Perhaps he did or he will. I hope he will get the help he needs. I understand he is writing a book; maybe he can help someone else–let them know that it is nothing to be ashamed of–IF one goes and gets treated. He needs to get his life back; his creativity can help him sustain sobriety perhaps.

I have read reports that he allegedly lost the role of Stefan due to showing up on the set intoxicated. I read he and his wife separated earlier this year. Now, Tyler is arrested for public intoxication. I have seen too many people being given too many opportunities to get clean before they decide they have a problem. I hope he knows he might have an issue and needs to address it.

Tyler needs help, he needs to go back to rehab. If he is not serious, things will not end well. I feel bad for him.

Perhaps if Tyler’s Personal life was not made public to be scrutinized and picked at he wouldn’t feel his need to drown it out by drinking.
Nobody, nobody, can stop a person a get them help to stop drinking, that decision is Tylers.
His family can support Tyler but the decision is his.
And (all) the public putting their noses into his business will only worsen his situation.

I didn’t realize he had such a problem. By the first article, I thought he drank too much on his birthday and did something stupid like swim naked in the town’s fountain, but this is obviously not a one time thing for him.

Unfortunately ordering someone into treatment isn’t as effective as him going for it willingly. Like the cop, I think I rather see him in treatment even if it didn’t stick, in hopes maybe something would eventually.

This is a disease, and it is a disease that can be managed, but only if the person is willing to do the work– otherwise the disease wins. I hope this isn’t his fate– so many truly gifted people have traveled this path, but it seems no one ever learns the lesson from others, they have to go down that road themselves.

The judge is a real bozo (that’s the most minor word I can come up with..I have tons of other names I would rather use). At least if Tyler had been court ordered to go into a program, he might have a chance to see what he’s doing to himself. I am in recovery but I went through alot of Hell before I got there. Shame on his Honor!!!

Completely agree with what you’ve said James…
The judge had the law & authority to HELP Tyler see reason, yet chose not to do so…shameful !

Harry

James, wise words.Court ordered issued programs are essential! They are not only essential for folks who cannot afford the expensive, out-of-pocket rehab facilities, they are essential because the judge can impose a program which exceeds the thirty day sentence. Listen, thirty days is not enough! I have been through this time and time again with loved ones, and I can tell you that judges who hand down these tough-love sentences are saving lives.

Prayers to Tyler and to his children. Tyler is so talented and is missed on #GH.

First of Tyler has all my best wishes but secondly he needs to get the hell out of Indiana. I lived there a long time ago, and that place would drive anyone to drink! My apologies to any offended Hoosiers.

I really wish Tyler could get his addiction under control and get his life together. Most importantly, for himself & his family. Beyond that though… the new Nik recast really sucks, and I’d really like to see the true “Dark Prince” return one day.

If the reports are true that he has been on a two month bender checked himself out of rehab the man’s next stop is the grave and let’s hope he does not take innocent people with him.

Abby

What kind of judge is he that he refuses to help someone who actually needs the help. Tyler is obviously one of those people who needs a professional to help him overcome his addiction and go back to a life with his wife and children. Any judge who denies a person clearly in need of help does not belong sitting on the bench. His job should be help get him on the right path if he can. Tyler is not a criminal, just someone who lost his way. FIND A REAL JUDGE.

First thing is for him to freely admit he has a drinking problem.Otherwise no one will be able to help him.

If this is his first offensive, he want to see, the judge might want to see if he repeats himself, then you a problem. I’ve been arrested for an accident in my car, and I didn’t make the news, I had to deal with a problem and I have for 25 years, not a drop, but I had to be willing to do the challenge to save my life. Let’s hope and pray he has no more troubles.

Karen Weiler

First he needs to find out if drinking is a problem, if yes then he needs help, if he wants help go to AA, if you want to lay around at and be a slug at the Malibu spa, that’s not going to help. It’s your head you need to know. If I drink, I drink until I pass out. , one time I was outside at a party and I was slurping, talking, with some one and I passed out and hit my head on a rock. For days my head hurt. Things happen if your drinking, he should talk to a very close friend or professional. God Bless You

I’m sorry to hear bout Tyler Christopher’s problem. Love him as an actor since 1996 his debut on GH. I think publicly humiliating him isn’t necessary. I grew up with an alcoholic dad it’s tough for his children and wife also. Praying for his wife and children it’s hard to have your parent drink uncontrolled. Pray he gets help but he has to want to quit !!

I wish Tyler all the best and i really miss him on gh please come back

For someone with a less than fragile, emotional “composition”, alcohol is a silent, comforting companion—-for others, it could be drugs and also food.
It is so easy to fall into the trap, per se—I never resorted to any of the above when I went through my dark days —-I have a strong mind and even stronger family support.
I truly feel sorry for Tyler—Lord only knows what drives him—-none of us is perfect and none of us has the right to judge. I saw enough of life’s sorrows while I was doing charity work—-capitulating into the pitfalls of any addiction is nothing for which anyone wishes upon himself.
I wish him the best, in the hope that he does get help. After all is said and done, it is the kids who suffer the repercussions the most. Bless you, Tyler. Stay focused.

I hope somoene will convince Tyler to get the help he needs.I wish his friends at GH and DOOL would get together and do an intervention for him and convince him to go into treatment. I doubt DOOL or GH will ever rehire him.

Shame on that Judge who could ultimately be responsible by refusing to put the actor (who obviously is in crisis) in treatment. God forbid Tyler loses his life or gets behind the wheel of a car and takes some innocent person’s life. A selfish, bad decision by a Judge in Bucks County PA (Jeffrey Trauger) was directly responsible for the death of a 7 year old girl in 2018. Good riddance to the Judges who play God instead of making decisions that are truly right & just and best for all. God bless the police officer who is truly trying to protect & prevent a future tragedy.

DAYS Chandler Massey Chats On His Bittersweet Daytime Emmy Nomination

He’s won three Daytime Emmys in the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series three years in row in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and now Chandler Massey is going for gold for the second time in his career in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series which in a field where he is competing with two co-stars from Days of our Lives among others.

Massey has long been a stand out performer, giving nuanced and emotional portrayals in the angst-ridden life of Will Horton and the love of his life, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).

Back in February of this year, DAYS fans learned that Chandler and Freddie had taped their last episodes, and since the NBC soap tapes more than 6 months ahead of air, that the two will still be on the air into the fall.  That has made this moment of recognition for Massey all the more poignant.

Michael Fairman TV talked with Chandler to get his reaction to the news that he is once again a Daytime Emmy nominee, and here’s what he had to say about it all.

I thought it was great that you received another Emmy nomination.  What do you think?

CHANDLER:  Yeah.  I thought it was pretty great too, actually.   I was surprised.  I wasn’t keeping up on when they were announcing the nominations.   I was thrilled that Wally (Kurth) and Paul (Telfer) also got nominated too in the same category.  So, hopefully, DAYS, has a decent shot to take it home.

What did you end up submitting that ultimately landed you the nomination?

CHANDLER:  I went with some scenes that aired on December 16th of last year (I just looked that up), where Will basically breaks up with Sonny when Sonny comes to visit him in prison.  I liked those because they were sort of subtle.  I just found myself drawn in when I watched it, and it wasn’t big or dramatic, but it felt like two real people sharing their pain.  So, that’s why I chose it.

Photo: JPI

I remember those.  Those were heartbreaking because he had to get Sonny to let him go.

CHANDLER:  Yes.  He said he has a new prison boyfriend, and that he’s doing really well in prison, so he doesn’t want to be tied down. (Laughs)

You’ve had Freddie Smith as your scene partner for so much of your run on DAYS.  What did he give you in those scenes that helped you, or even further enabled the performance that you gave?

CHANDLER:  Freddie always gives everything.  He is a consummate professional, so he really commits every time.  I think it is more that we are just so comfortable with each other that we are not afraid, and that there is no hesitation between the two of us, so we just are able to do the work.  We usually know we are there to listen to, and support each other. in the scenes.

Photo: NATAS

Was your entire submission from the prison scenes or did you include something else?

CHANDLER:  It was just that.  I know I could have included something else, but I like to keep it sort of short because I feel like as a judge, I know within a few minutes.  It’s not that I get bored, but it really only takes a scene or two, and then, you’re like, “this is something special.”  You can recognize it pretty quickly.

So, you have won three Daytime Emmys. This is your first nomination in a few years, right?

CHANDLER:  Yeah, I didn’t get nominated the year before.  I had a gap year… to my family’s great shame. (Laughs)  They were not pleased with me.

Photo: JPI

This is your second nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Daytime Drama Series category.

CHANDLER:  Yes. I was nominated in ‘Supporting’ for the first time when I came back to DAYS, and then submitted for “Lead” the next year, didn’t get nominated, and then went back to ‘Supporting’.  I learned my place.  I went back to ‘Supporting’ for this year.  (Laughs)

It’s such a game though, right?  .

CHANDLER:  Yeah, you’ve got to be smart.  I just thought, “What the heck?”  Freddie and I were like, “Maybe there’s a shot that if we pick different categories, we can both get nominated,” but then, after that didn’t work, I said, “Screw that… going back to ‘Supporting”

Now, you’ve been through Emmy night before, and this is obviously going to be a virtual Emmy’s.  Now, if they did a six-shot of all of the nominees, what would you wear?  Would you be dressed up?  Would you be casual?  What would you see yourself doing?

CHANDLER:  That’s a good question. I think maybe… I’ll do a little of both.  I’ll go the middle ground.  I’ll be in my finest bathrobe, a silk bathrobe so it’s casual but also still sort of fancy.

There you go.  (Laughs)  Is this nomination all the more special for you in that you are no longer working at DAYS? 

CHANDLER:  Oh, totally.  Every year is special, but you know, I’m not on the show anymore, so it’s a nice reminder that the work that I did had an effect on people, and it won’t be forgotten for at least a few more hours.

Photo: JPI

I saw the fan outcry and show of support for you and Freddie, when viewers got wind that you were exiting the series.  It was sad and heartwarming at the same time.  The WilSon fans are so behind you guys.

CHANDLER:  Yeah, if only they knew what horrible people that we were in real life, then they wouldn’t be this way, but thankfully… (Laughs)  Yeah, it’s really nice, but it is sad.  I started in 2009, and that was over 10 years ago, and nothing lasts forever.  I had a really, really great run, and so did Freddie.  I am very satisfied and don’t feel jipped, or like, I was entitled to anything more than I got.

Courtesy/NBC

Obviously, your co-nominees, Wally and Paul you worked with many times.  What can you say about them?

CHANDLER:  I think that both men deserve definitely to get second and third place.  (Laughs)  I have known Wally for a while now.  I love him.  I think his work is phenomenal.  I think he is really, really underrated.  Paul, I don’t know as well, but I think obviously his work speaks for himself.  If only he were physically attractive, I think that would really, really help his career.

Photo: JPI

I know, it’s a shame.

CHANDLER:  Unfortunately, he is kind of schleppy, you know?  (Laughs)

Photo: JPI

Did Freddie reach out to you after you received the nomination?  

CHANDLER:  Oh yes, he sent a text congratulating me, and we talked about it.  It was nice.  I feel like our stories are so intertwined, the scenes we submit are mostly with each other.  So, it’s really kind of a shared accolade.

So, will you be rooting for Chandler to cap off his career on DAYS with an Emmy win on June 26th during the virtual ceremony on CBS? What did you think of the nominated scenes he submitted? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
