Freddie Smith and Guy Wilson Interview – Day of DAYS 2014

Days of our Lives stars Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Guy Wilson (Will) chat with Michael Fairman at Day of DAYS 2014! Freddie tells Michael he is feeling better, and thanks fans for their positive support after his recent car crash incident. Guy talks on Will’s temporary exit from the canvas where he left for Hollywood, and what he thinks of Will leaving Sonny for a career move, plus the departure of his on-screen mom, Alison Sweeney (Sami). Next, the duo talk the state of the union of WilSon and tease what’s ahead. Freddie reveals that what is about to come up has been the most fascinating, and has the most ups and downs, that he has ever played during his time on DAYS.

This interview doesn’t give me hope that Paul will be for Sonny. They will probably hook him out with Will. Will always have to drive the story. I just hope we get good Sonny scenes. Can’t have high expectation for Sonny.

I think Paul is for Sonny. Will probably has another guy that he meets in CA and that is the secret he comes home keeping. I think mystery man shows up in Salem later on and blows Will’s secret. My speculation of course.

And then Sonny sleeps with Paul.

I Think That Whatever Happens In The Next Few Months Will Be Different, Interesting, And Mysterious As Well As Unexpected, But I Still See Will And Sonny Becoming Closer As A Married Couple With More Things Going On In Their Life Together. I Do Hope That In April, The Writers Will Have Put Out An Episode Where Will And Sonny Celebrate Their First Anniversary As A Married Gay Couple
That Will Be Fun And Passionate And Romantic For Them And For The Fans.

We now know Paul is for Sonny.

Paul is Sonny’s selfish ex. I am sure about that.

LeeAnn

I was thinking the same thing. I don’t think either will actually cheat but the temptation due to Will , like Guy said doing a half assed thing and leaving Sonny to go to Hollywood, will cause a few fights. They did say in an earlier interview they do celebrate their one year anniversary so eventually all will be good again between them. A little jealousy for Will won’t be bad. he tends to forget that he almost lost Sonny due to his not so smart moves.

And DAYS is making Sonny the cheater? Great. First Will becomes detestaable and now Sonny too. Good going NBC! You got it all wrong. From gold to trash.

Is a soap. That is what happens. I have to see it to believe that Sonny cheats. Days was never interested in Sonny as anymore than Will’s handler. I think that Days has been treating WilSon as second class. No couple their age would be settle with baby, marriage and happy baby clothes folding life. Babies are used for drama for hetero couples. Heck, look at JJ and Paige. Even teenage hetero couples get adult soapy story. So I really hope this coming story brings it for WilSon finally. If not, I can happily wash my hands of the show… Read more »

I don’t think Sonny will cheat…maybe be flattered when/if someone flirts with him with Will being possibly being gone for so long and whatever trouble happens when he comes back but nahhhh Sonny won’t cheat, neither will Will…course just MY prediction.

And I still don’t understand why you or anyone actually, never interviewed Freddie and Chandler together. I call foul.

You have to call foul on CM and his agent I guess. I’m pretty sure they were the reason FS and CM hardly did press together.

rumor has it that Chandlers people didn’t want them to interview together. I don’t know if that is true but it’s what is rumored to be true.
You know how rumors are……

It seems you should be happy that Freddie and Guy do joint interviews and appearances instead of being angry that Chandler and Freddie didn’t do much off set. Maybe your anger is turning to sadness…a sadness at the realization that Chandler only played Will for a paycheck. HE AND/OR HIS HANDLERS (AGENTS OR WHAT HAVE YOU) FEARED THAT CHANDLER WOULD DEFINATELY BE VIEWED AS GAY AND NOT ABLE TO PLAY STRAIGHT ROLES IF HE WERE TO DO REGULAR PRESS WITH FREDDIE AND CONTINUE ON DAYS MUCH LONGER. And don’t be surprised to learn Chandler accepts an acting job really soon…a… Read more »

Days is not the only soap with gay characters. GH has with three gay characters, but you are right in the sense that their gay couple is not a more central focus. They could do better and feature them more, but they are there.

I’m so glad to hear that they will be appearing more onscreen. Ups and downs are fun to watch, but I truly hope that Will and Sonny are endgame in this scenario.

Alex
Guest

Will and Sonny are endgame. That has been obvious from the beginning. I hope they get shaking up big time though. Lets having cheating, misunderstanding and all kinds of soapy drama. I don’t watch soaps to see young couples fold baby clothes, talk about baby while dressing like Mr. Rogers and/or wearing the ugliest shirts I ever seen put on people. Lets do them justice Days and give FS and GW something interesting to work with and give us something interesting to watch.

They can be involved in a triangle.

Will can be torn between Sonny and an early released Gabi!

Will can be like that Dynasty dude (he was the Salem Strangler) that could not make up his mind!!!

Alex

I’m not sure if you are joking or not but um..no.
I’m only coming back to the show now. I left when this stupid show expected me to watch Gabi playing house with them. Will is gay. Why would he be into any woman. Did you miss the whole coming out story.

You truly are a sad person. The original Will & Sonny had charm, guts and beauty. All what the show and lame audience wants now is trash.

What a disgusting heterosexist nonsense that you are propagating here. Will is gay and it’s just an expression of the aggressive heteronormativity ruling our society that someone would want to turn him (at least) “half straight” again.

Had to reply here, LeeAnn (Rimes?)… I know she’s a DAYS fan.

I meant the writers brought Paul for Sonny. Yes, Paul’s surprised look could be that he had no idea Sonny lived in Salem or he may have been happy to not have to leave the hospital to see him.

4ever DAYS

4ever DAYS

Had to reply here. I was serious. I liked the coming out story, but realize some people can’t be classified as gay or straight. There a differing grays. In the beginning, Will was attracted to Mia and then Gabi. He had sex with Gabi and was not feeling it. That pushed him to confront his feelings for the same sex. The second time Will was with Gabi was what resulted in her pregnancy with Ari…He tried to use her as a way to fight against his perceived notion that he was gay. It just proved Gabi was not the girl… Read more »

Will didn’t come out as Bi. His realization was not omg I like men too. He came out as gay. It would make zero sense to turn his character back. Yes the world has Bi and Pan sexual people in it but Will is neither. He is GAY. Whatever though. I don’t really want to have this discussion. I find it sad that there is always some that want to see whatever one or two gay characters we have to turn back to woman.

Liz
Guest

I agree with Alex that there is no question about this, but if you want evidence that the show”s writers are clear on this: Will and Gabi had a discussion about exactly this a day or two after they slept together the second time. Gabi asked if he was reconsidering his sexuality and Will replied that if she meant was he bisexual, that no, he wasn’t. He was gay. And when he talked to EJ after he was revealed to be the baby’s father, he said that it was right after being with Gabi that he felt quite sure of… Read more »

We could all have been wrong. Rafe is talking about Gabi to Marlena. This makes no sense unless they are bring that shit character back. Maybe Paul isn’t gay/bi and for her hence he will be in Will and Sonny’s sphere/”story”. Maybe Gabi lame release from jail is the unforeseen thing that brings Will back to Salem. Melanie is back and every hero needs their villain. WilSon won’t cheat each other just stupid misunderstanding and play second fiddle to Gabi’s story again. This would easily make me swear off this show for good.

No, Paul came to Salem for Sonny. It’s turning into a Will, Sonny and Paul triangle unless there’s a fourth person which would be someone Will is seeing in L.A…A quadrangle.

I don’t think Paul knew Sonny was in Salem. He came for Daniel to do his surgery. You can tell he was very surprised when he saw Sonny in the hallway at the hospital.

at least all the wondering, questioning… what’s going to happen is about relationships

I can’t keep up at GH right now… i’m letting it play out

it crossed my mind as well… could Gabs be coming back? it would be serious retread… and geez! even Gabs could spark with Paul…..

that to me is the big question… who’s with who….

Pauls a keeper… if all this is generating in just a few days of his premiere

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

the first thing that comes to mind:

a young couple on the cusp of life

and yes…. albeit… a triumph….. Gabi and Arianna Grace

and YES, YES, YES….. one of… if not the most beautiful love stories…. reminiscent of the super couple charged DAYS of ole’

that’s a big thing… and it just so happens along with… keeping DAYS in the know… and sharing a whole segment of our every day lives that has blossomed… be it on screen and reality, ongoing steps up the ladder to equate sharing life with

happy that Will and Sonny continue to be

I’m still torn about Paul

should he be with : Sonny, Will, Theresa, Jordan, Abs, Anne

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 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.

DAYS Emily O’Brien Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

She has been a polarizing character since her arrival in Salem, with some fans screaming Gwen is sucking up too much airtime.  HOWEVER, the performances by Emily O’Brien (Gwen) show an actress on top of her craft who can play, as Gwen called herself, “A miserable, vindictive bitch”, or a young woman so deeply-emotionally wounded that you might just come around and eventually feel some empathy for her.

Last week, while the soaps were pre-empted for most of the week due to the senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump, DAYS posted all of its weekly episodes online on NBC.com, the NBC app, or on the Peacock streaming platform, and O’Brien’s work was a standout.

It all came to a boiling point when Laura (Jaime Lyn Bauer) and Gwen have the long-awaited confrontation in Gwen’s room at the Salem Inn, where O’Brien goes from Gwen baiting Laura to tell her dirty secret of her long-ago affair with Jack (Matthew Ashford), to her utter anger at how because of it, Laura trashed Gwen’s entire life.

 

Laura reveals the guilt she felt for sleeping with Jack, so much so, that she would do anything to save Jennifer (Cady McClain) and Jack’s marriage.  In delight at getting to the root of the truth, Gwen responds: “You slept with Jack? That is just perfect! My father slept with his mother-in-law!”

Then, Laura shares how it happened.  They were both at the “Meadows” finding their ‘truest selves’ and they were both using other names – she, Monica and he, Clark, and Laura had never seen a photo of Jack before to know it was him!  Gwen wants to burst out in hysterical laughter, but then she becomes filled with rage knowing that if Laura hadn’t bought off her birth mother, Tiffany, her own life would have been very different.  She goes on to say that she and Abigail (Marci Miller) might even be close as sisters, but instead of “borrowing her clothes, she borrowed her husband” alluding to sleeping with Chad (Billy Flynn).  Next, Gwen wants to make Laura pay and lets Laura know that, “All the damage that you did, can’t be undone.” When Laura tries to leave, Gwen stops her and says in no uncertain terms, “I want revenge, because you ruined my life and you’re not going to get away with it!”

Photo: JPI

Next, we see that there had been a struggle with Laura dead on the floor bleeding out of her head.  A freaked-out Gwen does not know what to do.  She realizes she will be accused of murder.  With no one in town to call, she decides to call her father, Jack.  When he shows up at the Salem Inn, Jack is shocked, and grief-stricken to see his mother-in-law, dead.  Gwen swears to Jack this was an accident and that she did not kill Laura, and that he has to believe her.  Jack decides he will stand by his daughter.  Gwen wants to get rid of the body, Jack says he can’t be involved in a cover-up, so he calls Rafe (Galen Gering).  When Rafe arrives at the crime scene he is very suspicious of Gwen, and takes her down to the station.

Scene after scene, O’Brien layered her performances with venomous and ominous undertones, illustrating a woman with so much emotional baggage who becomes desperate to save herself.  For all these reasons, Michael Fairman TV names Emily’s work, The Power Performance of the Week.
