Freddie Smith and Christopher Sean Interview – Day of DAYS 2016


Days of our Lives stars, Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Christopher Sean (Paul) chatted with Michael Fairman at Day of DAYS 2016. During their conversation, the debate raged on if their on screen coupling should retain the name “PaulSon” or should it now officially be “Soul”? Freddie talks about Sonny’s willingness to open up to the possibility of falling in love again, and with Paul, following the murder of his husband, Will.  In addition, Christopher and Freddie weigh-in on who they were rooting for in the recently concluded World Series (Cleveland fans will be happy to hear), their reaction to the presidential election, and much more.

Well, I enjoyed the Interview, but honestly they haven’t given Paul and Sonny anything much to do from my point of view. We get a hint every now and then that Sonny would like to get things going with Paul, but it doesn’t seem to take off from there. Then, Derrick is re-introduced as an obstacle for that but he is given very Spencer Neville is not given any lines to say, which is annoying. The show has a chance to do something innovative and different, but the writers shy away from it and instead, we are forever bombarded with the same old Demos and Nicole baby crap that just goes on and on. I want Sonny and Paul to have a GENUINE solid storyline, and I want another side of Derrick to come out, showing that he doesn’t appreciate just being used as a tool to make Sonny jealous – not that Paul has even DONE that but I’d like to see more layers revealed to their characters.


I think Freddie is the most under-used character on DOOL. He needs to drive a storyline, not necessarily with Paul. I still wish they could un-do Will’s death. I was not a fan of Guy Wilson’s portrayal, but the storyline was always interesting.


If Will’s character is revived (hopefully with Chandler Massey), I would like to see the writers delve into the completely overlooked issue of WHY Will was such a naturally good writer and computer programmer.

The answer is that Will didn’t very much like the world around him, over which he had very little control, and in which he didn’t fit in an intrinsically important way that he couldn’t tell anyone.

Both writing and computer programming allowed Will to create artificial worlds to his own liking, which he completely could control.

This one topic alone could provide an entire season’s worth of interesting and meaningful material for Will’s character, as well as plenty of interaction with his psychiatrist grandmother.

I agree that Chandler would help if he got going with Freddie again.That pair was somehow magical for both actors and the fans. Does anyone think Chancler will ever return?Does DOOL hate him for leaving perhaps?

‘Days of our Lives’ Producer Files Lawsuit Against Sony Pictures Television

In a breach of contract and fraud complaint filed this morning, Corday Productions, the Producers of Days of our Lives, is seeking 20 million dollars in damages from its producing partner, Sony Pictures Television, as well as its Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems divisions, and to significantly take back control of the show.

In the 33-page court filed document this morning, noted some of the key points contained within.  Corday Productions is alleging that Sony has treated the show unfairly skewed in favor of its Sony-owned daytime drama series, The Young and the Restless.  The complaint indicates that, “While the domestic ratings for Days of Our Lives have remained largely constant, Sony’s distribution receipts have decreased by over 50%. This dramatic decline is directly attributable to a decision at the highest levels of Sony management to eliminate any competition to its own wholly-owned series The Young and The Restless also distributed by Sony.”

Sony Pictures Television distributes Days of our Lives in overseas territories, and in ancillary markets such as digital streaming.  The DAYS suit alleges that Sony has failed to sell the show in key territories including: Great Britain, France, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, France, Zambia, and South Africa.”

In the lawsuit, the producers also claim that Sony has stiffed them by forcing the production company, Corday Productions, to absorb budgetary deficits . The filing also claims that Sony is “imposing solely on Corday the burden of absorbing the multi-million dollar annual operating deficits due to an inadequate NBC license fee and mandating an inefficient, costly production schedule.”

The complaint filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, also alleges that Sony has provided Corday with inaccurate accounting and has failed to pay millions of dollars in profits.
