I’d like to see her back. Jen needs her mom, and Marlena needs her friend to help her with the Kritter…um, Kristen problem again!

I would like to see her come back. Both Jen and Marlena need her help! !!

it would be nice to see her come back & put karis life back into order & get daniel & her together & get rid of the witch that is trying to brake them up, with everything she has done i hope daniel gets custidy of his son

Alice

Yes, I would love to see Laura come back, she has been gone to long, Jen need her mother right now. She could be good for the soap,

Norene Wittlin

Yes! Bring her back and Carrie, Austin and Bill(though it would be a recast.).

I would love to see her back. Someone needs to get that witch, oh sorry, her name is Chole, out of there. Jen needs her mother now more than ever and it would be nice to see Laura back for Jen and also for Marlena. I read somewhere that “Chole” will be off the show soon. That God for big favors. What she made Jen do is totally unforgivable and just shows how desperate she is. Why would someone want somebody that clearly does not want them. Using Parker has a pawn shows what a poor mother and role model she would be. I hope she leaves and Daniel has custody and Daniel and Jennifer are back together as they should be.

This may not be popular but I kinda don’t like Jenn very much. I see her as a real busy body who butts her nose into things that don’t concern her (what? in a soap???…I know) and stirs things up. She runs her mouth off without listening to the other person. And if I were Daniel, I’d kick her to the curb just because she’s run so hot and cold with him since Chloe returned. She wouldn’t listen to him or trust him to take care of her and even stooped to her level when she lied to him about where they were going to be when they went to Chicago. I’ve kinda been routing for Chloe to win Daniel back. They had a good connection when they were together. Yes, she slipped with Philip but that was because of all the crap Vivian put in place.

Andrea

Of course Jen needs her Mom. Marlena needs a friend. And KATE needs one more person to irritate her. Sami could also use Laura as an Ally against Kate (Kate and Bill are Lucas’ parents and Bill and Laura are Jen and Mike’s parents.)

She will forever be remembered in my book as Laurie Brooks #Y&R

Mark in FLA
Mark in FLA

I agree, always loved the Brooks family on Y&R. The Brooks daughters and their parents were wonderful, a really down to earth midwestern family. They and the Foster’s were truly the first families of Genoa City.

Chloe

I wish it was Susan Flannery. She was a much better Laura.

I agree. It would be nice to have Susan back in the roll of Laura after all these years.

Patrick
Patrick

Oh No! Sorry,

Jaime Lyn’s nuanced character tour de force… was spot on… the vulnerable… “?” sketchy she played… was compassion… and you know she was pulsating in her turmoil and angst… Laura was legit… and we cared about her.

Jannk
Jannk

You are absolutely right. Susan was terrific.

William

I ADORE! JLB, Her crazyness with Kristen and Peter was what I lived for on Days in the 90s and I would love to see Laura, and Bill return to Salem and drudge up all those old stories with Kate and Kristen.

jimh
jimh

I agree with you…she was good as Laura. i even suggested a possible storyline for her to show they could stil write for Laura instead of this all too brief visit!

Patrick
Patrick

thank you William…

like i posted before… when it was grans’ funeral… god rest her soul….

Laura and Bill fell outa my TV… sexy… passionista’. Kate was smoldering…

the angst this trio would deliver…

with Stefano in tow.

jimh
jimh

Bring Laura(JLB) back to Salem for good…and John Martin? as Bill Horton! Bill and Laura could move into the Horton home kinda like Tom and Alice! Except theyll have marriage issues. Bill could be the new chief of staff at the hospital working in his late fathers office with a portrait of Tom hanging on the wall. Kate could be a hospital volunteer with Rafe and Laura becoming jealous knowing Kates past affair with Bill! Laura could always have secretly despised Lucas because he is a constant reminder that Bill cheated on her with Kate! Everytime Lucas visits Bill, Laura could deliberately mention how she and Bill miss having THEIR SON Micheal in Salem ect. Lucas will sense Laura dislikes him and will tell Kate who’ll confront Laura. Laura will warn Kate, who has secretly have renewed feelings for Bill, to stay away from Bill! Then a short time later Kate fears someone is stalking her and she’ll go to Bill accusing Laura of being unballanced and trying to frighten her to death! Bill will believe Kates story after Laura accuses Bill of cheating on her again with Kate when Laura sees Kate leaving Bills office! But is Laura really the one stalking Kate or is it one of Stephanos men because Stephano realizes he still loves Kate and cant let her go? Or is someone else stalking Kate…and why?

GREAT comment jimh!

jimh
jimh

Thanks…this was my way of saying they could write interesting and exciting stories for older vets us fans still enjoy seeing, and that there is more for Laura, and Bill too, waiting for them in Salem than just a brief visit. Right now the show lacks balance(but its storyline is improving) and adding these two characters could help both ways. GH has had an amazing turnaround in popularity and i feel the same could happen for Days which ive watched, believe it or not, since i was 6 years old.

Chloe
Chloe

While I still prefer Susan Flannery in the role, I love your ideas!! If only the writers would realize how much long-time fans appreciate and miss the veteran actors. I thought the actor who played Bill during Alice’s funeral [I think you’re right in saying his name was John Martin] was really good and I would love to see more of him. We need to book you a ticket to Burbank!

jimh
jimh

I love Susan Flannery…stayed over 6 hours in movie house just to see her in Towering Inferno…it wouldve been nice seeing her as Laura if the late Edward Mallory(the 2nd Bill) was still with us. She and him had wonderful chemistry. Thanks 4 the reply.

Phil

Susan Flanery just retired from B&B a role she played for years. I highly doubt she will return anytime soon to any daytime drama. JLB is recognizable and is not a bad actress at all. As for Bill being Cheif of staff, that job is occupied by Dr. Kayla Brady. I know they barely use Kayla, but she is there and has the job. I am all for Bill and Laura coming back though… Maybe Kayla can step down for Bill. If the actor doesn’t want to return they could always recast… Perhaps Peter Simon(ex-Ed Bauer, GL)?

jimh
jimh

Peter Simon would be a good choice as Bill if they decide to bring that character back…ive been watching days and never realized Kayla was the chief of staff…they underuse mary beth evans maybe i just forgot. I hated seeing Susan retire…shes was the main reason i tuned in to B&B, and it wasnt the same wirhout her. But i stopped watching that show for different reasons…it just could never keep me interested. Thanks for reminding me about Kayla!

Phil
Phil

B&B is the most boring show on TV…. IMO as I have said before the ratings really should read as follow 1. GH. 2. DAYS. 3. Y&R. 4. B&B. I understand how you could forget about Kayla. She is barely present. If they aren’t going to bring Steve back they really should bring on someone new for her or pair her with Abe. A little more Kayla, Justin, and Adrienne and little less Jennifer, Chloe and Daniel would be nice at this point. I am not on the Jen and Dan hater bandwagon, but enough is enough!

jimh
jimh

Phil…i actually wrote an idea sometime back about Kayla crushing on Abe…i also agree the order you put how the soap ratings should be! i like how we somtimes think alike. More Justin and Adriene too. They may as well kill of Bo…i dont know what they are waiting for since it dont seem they’ll do a recast. Im bored with the Daniel/Jen/Chloe triangle…it just wasnt well written. Having Chloe always showing up at the Horton home and having Jen even listening to her was absurd…id have Jen slamming the door on Chloe or not answer it at all. Glad Chloe is leaving soon so this triangle will finally end.

Phil
Phil

The writers have seriously destroyed the character of Chloe worst than they did during the whole Daniel and Phillip mess before, and I didn’t think that was possible. Despite what others say, I enjoy the current writing regime, but they missed the boat on this one. Time to cut their losses! As for Bo, they need to either beg for Peter Reckell to come back or recast! Killing him is out of the question IMO… We need Bradys and Hortons on the show. Some recast ideas that I have are bringing back Robert Kelker Kelley. Maybe someone new like John Loprieno (ex-Cordt, OLTL), or maybe they could woo Ricky Paul Goldin (ex-Gus, GL) away from B&B, or woo Vincent Irizarry (AMC, GL) away from Prospect Park’s AMC? They need Bo back either way.

jimh
jimh

They could kill Bo off for now…off camera and later bring in one of those recast you mentioned just as Hope begins to move on to someone new.

Phil
Phil

Please no Hope moves on and then Bo returns…. That plot has been done too much!

Patrick

John Martin… IS: Sexy! Ta-Da!

Patrick

Phil –

Chloe is currently and presently…. allure… and has the it factor.

definately right… the writers squandered another return.

it’s a shame… cause… of this sad trio…. daniel/Jenn… and chloe…

chloe is…. and? salvageable?

what a dire need.

especially with her mom home… she’s showing and giving more story… than the trio.

at least… Parker… is finally… talking and reacting… I was worried about the little dumpling…

don’t even ask me about the writing…”team”

jimh
jimh

What about the writing team…never say ‘dont ask’ because once you do say it, i usually will ask! lol

jb44

I’m glad to have the character Laura back on the show, but the story line involving Jennifer, Daniel and Chloe is horrible. First, I hate the way they have ruined Chloe! Chloe has always been one of my favorite character on Days. The writers better do something to rehabilitate her or I may stop watching after 47+ years! I really don’t care at all for Melissa Reeves. I like Jennifer, but not with Daniel. I used to like the Daniel character, but he needs to learn how to keep it in his pants. A pairing I would like to see is Chloe and Brady. They had amazing chemistry when Chloe was in the hospital. Maybe when things blow up for them with Daniel and Kristen, they can console one another and start anew.

jimh
jimh

I read Chloe and Nancy were leaving in mid April?

Mary SF
Mary SF

I agree they are ruining Chloe- I like her in her early days, being the outcast, trying to fit in– finding her talent– falling in love and getting the man of her dreams (Brady). This 2013 Chloe seems more like Kate 2.0, but without the class. I get she is driven to get her family back together, but to me they are having her act totally out of character. The only good thing to come of it, is she broke up Daniel and Jen– the worst couple ever– no chemistry. Why the Days writers can’t see that on screen and move on is beyond me.

Chloe
Chloe

Completely agree!!! Dannifer are boring, Chloe has been ruined and so has Jenn. She’s become a doormat.

jimh
jimh

I think id like to see Daniel with Kristen but also as a player who likes to flirt around with some of the hospital nurses. Jennifer should just concentrate on her childrens lives, especially now that her son J.J. is supposedly coming to Salem.

Dmitri
Dmitri

I agree. I love Dannifer, but now their storyline sucks, and it’s been that way since late last year. Chloe’s character was ruined, and I can’t wait for her and her mother to leave! I was hoping she’d come back to bring down Kate and Kristen with Nancy, and then get with Brady.

Patrick
Patrick

!st off!

Daniel dares to talk tough to Chloe, Jenn… and heck… through in Nicole.

his emoting is embarassing and startling to watch…. why did the writers venture so far… with Daniel?

yeah… with Maggie…

that’s as far as they should have gone… he was best left in the hospital.

since… Crystal Chapelle left… he hasn’t been any good….

Tami
Tami

Daniel and Jennifer are too closely related for me. Don’t care if Maggie is her aunt by marriage, Daniel is still her son – even though she didn’t give birth to him.

Ces
Ces

Welcome back JLB!! This is cool. More Hortons!! Now… if only Kristian Alfonso could get some airtime. Days should be ashamed of themselves what they’ve done to her and Hope!

jimh
jimh

I agree…Kristan A. is a long time favorite and a great actress. She deserves better as well as James Reynolds, Mary Beth Evans, and Josh Taylor. What a sad waste of so much talent!

ces
ces

Ain’t that the truth?! It’s like they’ve been completely forgotten about. What bothers me the most is that this Daniel/Jen/Chloe mess is on day in and day out and it’s not even a good storyline and yet Days has wasted K.Alfonso, my favorite!!

Patrick
Patrick

JimH…

geez! thank you…

Hope… Abe… Kayla… Roman….

what a love fest … of talent.

add… Justin and Adrienne.

MORE Victor and Maggie.

is or isn’t John coming or going? it’s so out of character for him to be dissing Marlena…

show him making love to her. this enlivens his being.

Ces
Ces

You’re so right about John treating Marlena like crap, this is SO out of character. John is majorly in love with Marlena and wouldn’t do this to her. What did she do that was sooo horrible anyway? Dumb. John & Doc have been destroyed.

Thank goodness for their other talent pool (Chandler Massey, James Scott, Eileen Davidson, Ali Sweeney & Blake Berris) but they need to mix it up and have more Kristian, Wally, Mary Beth, James, John Aniston & Judi.

Days needs to get a clue!

Dennis L. Sisneros
Dennis L. Sisneros

OMG! OMG! OMG! I have been posting lately, that I wish she would join B & B as John McCook’s new love interest, so that Eric wouldn’t have to steep so low as to sleep with his ex daughter in law and mother of his grandchild,
(Ewwwwwwww)! So to hear that she is coming back to Days has me doing cartwheels! Guess who is going to start watching DOOL again!

Patrick
Patrick

Wow… well said… –

I couldn’t agree more….

someone outside the “family”.

Jamie Lyn Bauer… is TALENT.

Dennis L. Sisneros
Dennis L. Sisneros

JAIME LYN BAUER IS TALENT!

Gerardo Ramirez
Gerardo Ramirez

Good news!they have needed Laura and Bill.I did not like the Jennifer-Daniel confrontation,so out of character.Even tho she was being blackmailed by Chloe,she would never publicly humiliate Daniel.I hope Ann Milbauer also gets her comeuppance.As Zsa Zsa would say,”Vat a bitch!”

jimh
jimh

You’re right…that was so out of character for Jen…that kinda public confrontation scene wouldve worked better if it was Marlena and John tricking Kristen into believing they were breaking up!

Patrick
Patrick

i am actually… FF through their scenes…. Daniel/Jenn.

so out of character for me….

I love my days.

but… this one story… I’ve had it!

Daniel has the shutz pah! from where and when?

these women dont’ deserve it and should never have taken it..

expletive him.

gloria
gloria

Agree 100% Patrick. Good grief, how many times can we sit thru the same scenes, over & over. Daniel is written as the village idiot. He is CLUELESS and embarrassing & Jennifer is just as bad. For God’s sake, Jennifer-call a meeting at Victor’s with Victor, Maggie & Daniel & just spill it girl! Tell ALL. Who better than Victor to take Chloe down & love every minute of it?

Taylyn
Taylyn

Laura needs to come back to Salem for good Marlena needs help with Kristen and Laura needs to help Jennifer figure a way to get Jack back an get over Daniel

Dmitri
Dmitri

Maybe she’s the vet rumored to return later? I have never seen her, but I hope she and Jennifer hound Chloe and Nancy out of town! Dannifer deserve to be happy, since no couples on DOOL are really happy, given that it’s such a negative soap! We need new, good writers!

heidi
heidi

Wow… she’s great! Will have to watch out for her!

Michael
Michael

Wow! Awesome! Jamie Lyn was just terrific back in the day. I remember she had a tryst with the very hot Mark Valley as Jack at the time. I really hope she comes back for an elongated stay. Good news- I love Days!

Patrick
Patrick

OMG!

My dream: come true.

what a shot in the arm for the Hortons… and Salem!

She’d be perfect with Bill…. and Kate… and Stefano… mixing in with Marlena… John… and Kristen.

and her daughter… Jennifer… who need’s more than help. A cure… from the writers….

puhlease… give up the Daniel and Jenn…. ! PLease.

2 episodes is not enough… but… an obvious signs to TPTB… that .. she’d be an excellent add to the canvas.

Love you, Jaime Lyn Bauer.

Dennis L. Sisneros

I am SO disappointed to learn that it is only for two episodes! I assumed that she was going to be on contract. Too bad! Too Bad!

Michelle
Michelle

I would LOVE to see Laura back!!!! Jennifer definitely needs her Mom & it would be good for Abigail to have her Grandmother back! Marlena could use her best friend & confidante to help her with Kristen!

Patrick
Patrick

the thing that just enervates and riles me…

is that they’re “writing” and “acting” this story…. Magic kingdom… Daniel/Jenn..

the making love in the Horton cabin.
the Titanic… necklace….
Jenn… emoting… overboard that it’s Jack she loves… what a slap in the face…

Chloe is made out to be just plain stupid…

she has potential….

although… it doesn’t seem possible to salvage …

thank good ness… her mom… Nancy is back…. rescue this imbecile… what retardation is she on?

sad… that Jenn needs her own rescue… course.. if this means Laura… then… who care’s…. she’s a fantastic actor… who draws you in… her imbalance, if you will… only captures her embodiment.. of her captivation….

BRING BACK JOHN MARTIN….

HE’S sexy.

i’m sorry in my last comment i sdaid kari , i meant jennifer. get chloe out of the pic,jen & daniel should be together, i get ticked every time chloe does something she gets away with it & poor jen suffers. put jen & daniels heads together to think of a good way to keep his son & find someone else for chloe. i can’t wait to watch the show. then u have to have chloe having her way all the time. it’s getting sickening, i’m starting not to watch when she is on/ get on with the program & change the story line with them already/ THANKS

Bonnie
Bonnie

Would be nice to have her back( Jennifer needs her mom now thanks to Chloe) she was a big plus for Days and have miss seeing her on there, love to see more of Doug and Julie and alot of the others that have not been on Days in along time ( Frankie,Mary, Alex and etc)

jim

I f your talking about Mary Anderson her character was killed of by the salem strangular in the early 1980s! Julies brother Steve Olsen is completly 4gotten as is Julies son David, and Davids son Scott plus several other Hortons plus the most recent Salem resident Bo Brady!

Judy
Judy

I am so so sick of Jennifer letting Chloe bully her. She needs to punch Chloe right in the mouth. Who would let someone come into their home and treat them that way. Also , how does Chloe think that she can travel the world and keep Daniel away from his son. The last time she was on the show she was prostuting to make a living. In this day of DNA it doesn’t matter if Daniel’s name is not on the birth cert. Move on from this senario Please.

gloria
gloria

REALLY! Why does Jennifer let the bitch in every time she knocks on the door? JUST DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR! Drives me crazy. Jennifer is so diminished as a character, I don’t think I can ever respect her again-what a flake & for who? Daniel-the flakiest guy on soaps? I wish he would just go away. Loved him on ATWT but not on DAYS.

Candy Burdine
Candy Burdine

Ok…JACK IS DEAD – there is no Jack and Jen getting back together. He fell down an elevator shaft…he is DEAD.

PLEASE bring Laura back full time!! Love her!!! And yes – PLEASE let her help Jen get back together with Daniel. Chloe has Nancy helping her – Jen needs Laura! Jen just needs to be honest with Daniel…THAT would be the slap in the face that Chloe needs. And what’s with this, all of the sudden Daniel is the father…Last we heard it was Phillip. PHILLIP needs to come back and help put Chloe in her place as well!!

Lucia
Lucia

Yes I would like to see her come back and hopefully she can teach Jen how to keep a relationship and stand up for herself, she needs her mom.

If Cloe’s big momma can come back and cause trouble, why not have Jen’s mom come back too! Would love them both to get into the ring and punch it out! I really want Jennifer and Dr. Jonas back together….why do you writers have to cause so much trouble. Once in a while, it would be nice to have a week of niceness on the air!

Also….still kinda miss Liz (Gloria Loring) and Neil and…wasn’t she married to Don for a while?! I loved Liz and Neil and Julie and Doug…

jim
jim

Liz was once married to Don. I also miss alot of vets and wish they could make brief returns like GH but several i miss are way up their in age and most likely retired…a few i miss such as Linda (Margaret Mason) and David(Richard Gutherie) are both deceased…some who never seen Days b4 the mid 1980s might not remember them because they were last seen in the early 1980s, and later replaced by different actors. ill always consider Doug and Julie daytimes most romantic couple!

Pam

I think bring Laura back would be great portraying a strong and much needed support for her daughter and family. Also put some mystery into the picture I hope that Daniel and Jennifer can get back together they seem to be great as a couple get the other female out of their lives. It seems they would be the perfect couple to memmick Alice and Dr. Tom in this soap. I really enjoy days the old characters were the best to me.

Gail Hemmingway

I also would like to see Carrie and Austin return or at least visit on Days. I think all the older cast should return for a special reunion.

I think Jenifer should expose Chloe for the unfit parent she portrays Parker deservers a better mother figure than that I believe that role should be more positive. Also the role with Will’s kid should be more positive . showing poaitive parenting goes a long way soaps or real life we need more of that. Positivity wake up call.

I Wish they would bring back Wayne Northrup as the original Roman. That would be super juicy with Kristian back trying to get John back and Marlana turning to him for comfort. Sparks would reignite and really bring this story to a whole new level 🙂

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

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.

Photo: JPI

 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I know, it’s a shame.

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

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.
