Days of our Lives Freddie Smith chatted with Michael Fairman shortly after winning the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series at the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmys ceremonies. Smith delivered one of the more memorable acceptance speeches of the night, and in a bittersweet moment admitted that the Emmy is a nice capper on his time on DAYS playing Sonny Kiriakis, since he departed the series over a month ago. Freddie also revealed his co-star Guy Wilson’s reaction to his win, and what an opportunity it has been for him to play such an important TV role representing the LGBT community.

So happy that Freddie won this year (and I hope he gets another nomination next year for his phenomenal work in 2015 as well). So sad that he has decided to leave the show after four years. I was hoping he would stay another year at least through the 50th anniversary timeframe but unfortunately he decided to leave now. I wish him much success in the future with his career and the side projects he has going. He will be missed. I am glad that he and Guy are such good friends and I hope that continues. Freddie and Alyssa… Read more »

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
