Freddie Smith Leaves Door Open For Possible Return To DAYS: "I Absolutely Believe There Will Be A Time When I Appear On DOOL Again."

Last week viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives saw what was a “quickie” goodbye as Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) decided in one episode that he was leaving Salem to get away from his dismal marriage to Will (Guy Wilson) and his feelings for his ex Paul (Christopher Sean), and take a gig in Europe given to him via his Uncle Vic (John Aniston)!

That was the final episode as of now after four years of playing Sonny for actor and Daytime Emmy winner, Freddie Smith.  In a new interview with Huffington Post on the making of his intriguing new project the horror flick Hiker, that also stars former DAYS star Molly Burnett (Melanie) and her real life boyfriend and DAYS cast member Spencer Neville (Derrick), Smith answered some direct questions about how he left DAYS and what the future my hold for a return to Salem.

Freddie commented: ” I signed on to Days of Our Lives for four years. I knew my contract was coming to an end and the big decision had to be made. I felt the love story was told beautifully and as an actor, I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and pursue other avenues. When I sat down with Corday and the other producers to tell them I had decided to leave, they were so supportive and thanked me for my hard work. They even said the door was always open, which is the best compliment I could have received.”

When asked if he would ever return, it seems that Smith’s answer was perhaps a bit cryptic, because there has been some reports via social media that Freddie was actually back at one point on the set:  “I absolutely believe there will be a time when I appear on DOOL again.”   Whether that remains to be seen, viewers will have to wait since DAYS tapes six months ahead of what viewers are seeing now.

Would you like to see a return by Freddie sooner than later? Do you hope it would be for a short arc to wrap up his story with Will and Paul …  or, do you hope Freddie decides at some point to come back to the show full-time?  What do you think about Freddie’s new film project, Hiker?  Share your thoughts below!

I would like to see him do spots on the show as he comes home to see his daughter and Paul He would have to see that Will has done mush repair and give up his acting like his Mom! I hope they find a way to keep the story line of the gay actors for the future shows.

I agree, it’s kind of annoying that now neither Paul nor Will have more of a storyline at all. I guess the character of “Derrick” as played by Spencer Neville is off the canvas since the character of Paul said ” I really have nothing to say to Derrick….thanks to Will” – thus right now, Will is just a character listening to Abigail’s love problems, and Paul is just talking with his new found Dad, John. I don’t strictly watch the show for the gay characters, I enjoy all the characters, but enough of Nicole and Daniel, good grief that’s been done to death.

We must believe Sonny in the form of Freddie Smith will return to Salem. I loved Will at the outset but the recast did not work for me. (But you accept things and move on.) Would love Sonny to come back and be the heart and soul of Salem. That Emmy was well deserved!

I too, would love Freddie to return to DAYS in some capacity, with that said, I feel that if in the next six months, there’s no sign of Freddie returning, I would very much be in favor of a recast Sonny. I would love to see Robert Gorrie (ex-Matthew, OLTL) either step into the role, or keep it luke-warm for Freddie’s impending return, when/if that should happen.

Freddie is and should always be welcomed back to DAYS.

‘Hiker’ is a low budget horror film of which there are too many for my taste, but it’s good for Freddie to hone his movie making skills.

I find some of these low budget horror films are a lot of fun. Okay, they are not equal to psycho etc. but still some fun.

I hope Freddie does return full time at some point. Sonny and Paul were not given the chance it should’ve had under the old writing team. I’d love to see Sonny come back for Paul.

Sonny should come back to Salem to work things out with Will. Even though will did something horrible but if you really love someone you should forgive and forget and take time to trust them again. I know cause it happened to me.

Only if they recast Will. If they got Chandler Massey back- he and Smith had great chemistry, which what has been woefully missing in the current Will/Sonny story line.

I think it is unanimous… we want Freddie back…wonderful actor

Hi. Hope Freddie comes. back. don’t like. Nocole & Danile are. not a. good couple. not. Story lines need. Eve. to. back off. why are they. after Hope. not good

Chris Wymard

To Me, I think that Chandler Massey was extremely awful in the role of Will Horton, because he played the role like the age that Will was, childish, his Will was too giggly for when he wanted to kiss Freddie’s Sonny on that couch, & when Dattilo’s Lucas came a-knockin’ on Freddie’s Sonny’s door, Massey’s Will reacted like he was caught doing something that he shouldn’t have been.

To me, I think that Guy is the best Will, because we saw his emotional side for when he was in the shower & Freddie’s Sonny came in after playing basketball & heard the shower, he quickly disrobed & walked into the shower & looked how Guy’s Will was, you can see the love that Will has for Sonny, & look at Guy’s Will for when Freddie’s Sonny was attacked & was dying on the table, Will was shattered, destroyed in thinking that the love of his life was gone, & when he was in the hospital chapel for when he brought up ” When Ari goes mountain climbing, rafting the river wild, he wants Ari to do that with Sonny because I’m too scared ” & look at Guy’s Will for when he hugged Victor when he walked into the chapel.

You tell me how Chandler would pull that off ?

I love to have freddie back as sonny as soon he
Is done with his project and make Will see how stupid
He was.

I hope Freddie comes back to be with Will. Even though Will did some really stupid stuff to hold on to his marriage I would love them to be back together. Paul should stay in Sonny’s pass so he can move forward with Will and Ari.
