John-Paul Lavoisier Debuts On Days of our Lives! What Were Your First Impressions?

On Thursday’s episode of Days of our Lives, viewers finally got to see the highly anticipated return to daytime by One Life to Live favorite John-Paul Lavoisier (Ex-Rex).

The actor has stepped into the role of Phillip Kirakis on the NBC daytime drama, and on his first airdate, Phillp return to Salem to help his father Victor (John Aniston) with Titan Industries, now that Brady (Eric Martsolf) has stepped down to spend more time with his son Tate, and Theresa (Jen Lilley).

In scenes re-introducing the character of Phillip, it is clear that this is a take-no-prisoners version, who’s intent is on heading up Titan, proving his worth to his father, and to keep Brady from being part of it.

In his first episode, Lavoisier shared scenes with John Aniston, Eric Martsolf, Peggy McCay (Caroline) and Suzanne Rogers (Maggie).   And it is, Maggie who is clearly suspicious of Phillip’s motive for being back in Salem, and his desire to cash in on the drug that has helped save Caroline, but that is causing her to have some serious premonitions – one of which is that something terrible is about to happen to Victor! 

Is Phillip poised to take over the family business? Is he all about power? Who will be the lady love in his life now that he is Salem?  Share your thoughts on this, and what were you first impressions of JP on Days of our Lives in the comment section below!

The new Phillip is meaner than Rex was.

DYLAN

Rex spent undisclosed time in a U F O! He has probe reasons for having anger issues!!!

First impression: Bad hair. I couldn’t take my eyes off his long dark hair. I was expecting short and blond. Or at least short. It’s too early to tell anything about his story. I’m sure he’s going to do very well though. Love him 😉

Blake
Blake

Yeah I liked him with short blond hair.

Reagan

I thought the same thing! I could not get past the hair, and I hate to say that. I thought it made him look a lot older, too. I like him as an actor but still wishing it was JKJ. Glad Philip is back but wishing they had given JP a fresh role, like Theresa’s brother Andrew.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Interesting, Reagan! I like that.

Paul
Paul

Absolutely agree. He looked so much older. I know its superficial but I hated his hair with a passion. It’s only been 3 years since OLTL went off the air, he looked significantly more than 3 years older. Still luv him though.

Linda Palmer

I agree! Cut the hair!

Phillip should remember that he had a sister Isabella who had a son Brady. If Victor wants Brady involved in Titan again there is nothing Phillip can do about it. Phillip should also be reminded that Victor’s grand children; Phillip’s niece Ciara and nephew Tate also have a legal claim to Titan. I think Maggie is smart to be suspicious of Phillip and his motives. In my opinion that guy is a trust worthy as a rattlesnake in a rat’s nest.

Patrick
Patrick

“…I think Maggie is smart to be suspicious of Phillip and his motives. ”

this is going to be my favorite part.

I haven’t seen the ep… so, i’m going to say from the get go…. I have never liked his acting… from what little bits i’ve seen on OLTL… and I do not; like his hair.

if this unfolds like; yours and JimH… then I can rest easy .. and hope… that this is just a guest starring arc

meh

I really wanted this to happen for Xander…. that his uncle Vic would have taken him under his wings and propelled Xander to the top of the heap… as a true Kiriakis Man of yum

am still hoping their is a connection down the road… between Xander and Vincent Irizarry’ Deimos…. (father and son?)

Xander acted circles around Eric, Daniel, and Brady

You are correct. Paul Telfer is a more compelling actor than JPL. The new DOOL writing team should bring him back.

Margie

I love him, I think he’ll do great. One tiny thing, though…JPL needs a haircut.

Blake

I agree, it makes him look older.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Yep, he plants to take Titan from Victor and it’ll be Brady who saves the day…then Victor will regret letting Brady go and reluctantly accept Teressa back into the family…Philip and Ava are actually secret lovers-this will eventually be revealed…Nicole will briefly be romantically tied with Philip after Dan is killed by drunk driving Erik who will be remorseful and leave Salem to return to the priesthood!…ok…just a guess!…lol

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

plans…lol

Now that would be a fun plot.

It’s great to see John-Paul again. Loved him on One Life to Live. My first impression of Philip – he’s an opportunistic snake. Don’t trust him for a second. Since I’m new to this show, I looked up the character background and read that Kate is his mother. OMG. Maggie is wise to keep a very close eye on this one.

DYLAN
DYLAN

Kate is hardcore!!!!!! She cant even keep track of her own kids!!

Susan

Phillip actually works for the same organization that Eduardo works for. He has been ordered by his employers to get control of Titan at any cost even if that means killing his brother Brady, his father Victor and any other relatives. Belle also factors into Phillip’s plans. She has access to the all the money Sami took from the DiMera’s. Phillip has been ordered by the Organization to use what ever means necessary to get that money. Phillip is completely and totally loyal to the organization which makes him far more dangerous than Eduardo who is having second thoughts about his involvement.

SZima

Susan, do you know all this as “fact”, or is it speculation/wishful thinking?

DYLAN
DYLAN

I find it so boring and yawn-inducing when shows completely change characters from how they were in a first incarnation. As played by Jay Kenneth Johnson, from 1999-2002, Phillip was a lovable goofy kid who had no real interest in the family business, and acted as sort of a moral compass for his wayward parents. He had a natural easy going charm, and had chemistry with everyone. A real young hero. During his second go-round, the powers that be had no idea how or what they wanted Phillip to be, and the confusion showed with the actor’s performance. Sometimes, he was needlessly angry, pointlessly arrogant, and sneering for no good reason. It was clearly not a Phillip that he knew how to play, or that the writers knew how to write. MEMO TO SOAP WRITERS: just because parents are bad, doesn’t mean ALL their children will turn out that way! I loved when Chad was a moody slacker, it was such a refreshing change from the old adage that ALL Dimera’s have to be evil, or battle the “dark side”. Chad didn’t even know he was a DiMera until a few years ago, so why would he be a victim of this curse? John Paul excels at comedy, and he has also has a natural easy going charm and presence. I hope the writers play to that more as he gets firmly rooted in the role. Otherwise, they are wasting a very capable, charismatic actor. It would be SO nice to see a Kiriakis or a DiMera with NO interest in cutthroat business!!

ces

I agree Dylan. Well said. Loved JKJ’s Philip; sweet and charming. Not sure yet on new actor, too soon to tell but hope they don’t make him all business and unlikable.

DYLAN
DYLAN

ya!

DYLAN
DYLAN

Gee, I’m rich, and I can be a nice guy! Let’s go for that!!!!

Reagan
Reagan

From what I remember, Phillip has always been willing to get a little dirty to get what he wants, especially in the business world. Wasn’t that why Stephanie broke up with him? So this does not surprise me. Not having him back in time for Bo’s funeral was lame.
JKJ’s Phillip & Nadia as Chloe were so good together, in my opinion. Would be interested to see if JP could have that chemistry with Nadia, but please get a hair cut! Ha.
Speaking of Stephanie… I think she should pay Patch & Kayla a visit!! Perhaps in this time away she’s discovered she’s a lesbian or bi. The right casting of Stephanie could be hot with Ava, especially since Days killed of their LGTB story line w/ Will & Sonny.

DYLAN
DYLAN

How twisted are you? You want Patch and Kayla’s STRAIGHT daughter, to have a random lesbian fling with a psychotic murderer who has tormented and tried to kill her parents????? Um…..where did you grow up?

Reagan
Reagan

Ha- “straight” characters come out or get rewritten as gay often on TV. A lesbian story line is lacking on daytime, and DAYS screwed up with their Will/Sonny ending. Stephanie is tied to the Brady’s, so I thought she would be a good character to explore a lesbian/bi-sexual story with instead of bringing on two random, new characters with no ties to the canvas. The actress that plays Ava did a great job (despite the writing) as a lesbian character on AMC. It would make for a wild soap story. As far as where I grew up… there is a huge difference in the soap world and the real world. Kind of cruel comment there, Dylan.

You know when the Billy role was being recast (again) on Y & R, JP would have been a terrific Billy. He has that devil-may-care, fun vibe (when needed) that has been sorely lacking since Billy Miller split. We will see how the new recast does, however. Wish they would have considered JP. And he seems somewhat age appropriate, more so than Jason Thompson.

Reagan
Reagan

Yeah, Jason Thompson is a great actor but looks nothing like Billy, Jack, or Ashley. Have a hard time seeing him as Billy. JP might have man an interesting choice. I thought Brandon Barrash (sp?) would have been interesting as I hear he is a really funny guy.

DYLAN
DYLAN

And Burgess Jenkins looks older than Jack even though his character is supposed to be 35 years younger?

Patricio

Good call, Jo-Jo!

Bam

My first thought: Y&R missed an ideal casting opportunity AGAIN by not hiring John-Paul to play Billy Abbott, the next best thing to Billy Miller.
Loved him as Rex Balsom and would watch him in anything, regardless of his hair.

Anne
Anne

Hate to be trivial, but he needs a new hairstyle. Otherwise, he’s playing the villain oh so well. I don’t go back that far with Days, but the previous Philip was not evil, right?

Sanxra
Sanxra

Not at all. He was mostly chasing Belle and Chloe in those days

DYLAN

He was nice Phillip. He was like me…just a nice guy. )

Sanxra

Not a fan! But that can change

Patricio

Not a fan either Sansie! I lent to his gym a few years back- he had some ego! Ugh.

That said – the dude can act, and is handsome as hell! Lol

Loved him as Rex but hope he keeps the mugging here to a minimum, what worked for Rex won’t work for Phillip.

DYLAN

it could and should.

Belle

I’m glad John- Paul is in the role; I like him and his long hair. Give him a chance in the role before the complaints begin!

James R. Poissant

Yep—he’s Philip. I noticed he had Philip’s mannerisms down pat. He’ll last for a while.

Did some you expect Philip to waltz in with Rex ‘ s dated choppy messy frosted mop top? He needs to look slick and grown up. Nothing says sleazy buisness man like slicked back hair.

Gary Ewing

Boooo! To me, the ONLY Philip Kiriakis IS and WILL always be…Jay Kenneth Johnson. I hate recasts! Also NOT looking forward to Brandon Beemer replacing Jason Cook as Shawn D. coming up. Two far inferior actors playing two beloved roles.

Patrick
Patrick

“…Two far inferior actors playing two beloved roles ”

the SORAS kids aren’t much better… (Ciara, TJ, Chase, Joey, Claire)

this is – seven – actors… who are in the younger demographic that DAYS will feature and REEL

oy! I am not looking forward to most of this

Patrick
Patrick

TJ is Theo

is Andre a caricature and cartoonish?

have John and Marlena run it’s course?

Is Hope all that and a bag of chips without ; Bo and Aiden, and Lauren Boles?

Are Peggy McKay, John Anniston, and Joseph Mascolo; retiring?
OK… it’s clear Stephano is
Victor heart attack as visioned by Caroline is to further story
Caroline continues to have “visions” but has not mentioned a single one… since Bo. she keeps on stammering and making excuses… alright already

will Kayla and Steve… rise above Ava coming between them?

will the exit of Eric… after running over Daniel… LOL ( I can’t wait for this) also plummet Nicole… who has no scenes with any thing new on the canvas with the new headwriting team

GET RID of Melissa Reeves’ Jennifer

it’s a sorry excuse to waste the biggest talent DAYS has… Kassie DePaiva

where are the best talents? Justin, Adrienne, Lucas, Eduardo, Kate, Maggie, Victor, … wow! where is everything palatable ???

1. I truly hope… Chad and Abs… continue to electrify the audience… sans no real supporting cast in both their families

2. with the exception of JJ and Gabs… too cute to not mention
3. will Eduardo and Kate simmer… they already are…
4. Kayla and Steve… they smolder on screen
5. Vincent Irizarry’ Deimos
6. Matthew Ashford’ Jack Deveraux

it’s long in the tooth to figure out whats next… now that the big “finale” of the 50th Anniversary is in the can…

I’m going to so miss Eve and Aiden

Patrick
Patrick

Paul

Sonny and Will

gaping miss

too much to circumvent… fool hardy decision

absolutely

give us some Paul w/ a love interest; at the very minimum… mom Tori
bring back Sheryl for Lucas… she can work at basic black

wouldn’t it be a blast to bring back femme fatale… Crystal Chappell…

Patrick
Patrick

can you imagine… Carly and Deimos.
can you imagine… Eve and Deimos.
can you imagine… Adrienne and Deimos.

Jason Brooks must return to fire up Kristian Alfonso…. I’ll be damned if they kowtow to KA’ … with the alleged ruminations.. they didn’t get along… this is a business! yeah, ! Melissa Reeve’ no longer matters

Patrick
Patrick

OMG… saturday night

I skipped to Thursday ep:

“ALL” wrong ! John Paul Lavoisier

stiff wooden devoid of any personality… that’s fun…. BAM!

Jay Kenneth Johnson… with just desert… clearly the FAN FAVORITE
Kyle Brandt… “my” favorite

JPL.. he’s aged… and that long hair… so out of ??? character! ?

where is the fresh, buoyant, fun, smile ready, charismatic, chip off the ole block… dad victor and vivacious Kate ? ! ? ! OMG … JKJ and KB personified both Victor and Kate…. the easy going nature… is all wrong with JPL

not in to him

===-Thaao Penghlis (Andre) has always been one of the best reasons to watch DOOL. The man is a genius at what he does. Now if they could bring back LeAnn Hunley. == No marriage is perfect; there are bumps along the road. John and Marlena have hit a rocky patch but their marriage will survive. ===- Hope should never been defined by her relationships with Bo, Aiden etc. She has never been just an appendage for some man. Hope is a strong woman capable of living life without a man. You insult Hope and Kristin Alfonso with your implication. ===All three of these people are in their 80’s. I’ve heard rumours that John Anniston wants to leave the show. Joe (Stefano) is not well. The actress who is Caroline may have also decided it’s time to leave as well. ==== Ava is truly a whack job who is more than obsessed with Steve. However, anything that brings Tamara Braun back to daytime is perfect. ===Well there are rumours that the writers will have Phillip and Theresa come together so Nicole can have Brady back. Victor would be very unhappy!! Jennifer (Melissa) is a legacy character who always belong on the canvas. Also there are many people who like Jennifer. Melissa is very good! She is, for many, one of the most beloved on DOOL. Many long time fans watched her grow up on the show. === I agree that the writers have wasted a golden opportunity. Kassie (Eve) could have been paired with Roman or better yet Justin. Can you just imagine Eve confronting Ben after he was brought back to Salem? ====You have to remember that what we are watching on Days was filmed six months ago. That would have been approx June. Wally Kurth is also on General Hospital. Judi Evans may have been on holiday with her family. Bryan Dattilo and his wife have a new baby; he may have wanted to spend time with his new bundle of joy. And the other actors mentioned may also have either been on holiday or were not needed by the writers. ==Sorry but Abby will need her mother Jennifer! You obviously don’t have a lot of experience with new mothers. Think of what Abby has been through being trapped with that psychopath Ben. Then being forced by Ben to give birth prematurely in that motel room after he attacked her. Having Chad is nice but there are conversations that Abigail will need to have with her mother. And you also have to factor in the anger from female fans if it looks like Abigail is being abandoned by her mother at this time. ===After all the problems with Jason Brooks I doubt they will be bringing him back. Kristen Alfonso more than didn’t get along with Jason. If they do bring Jason back Kristin will refuse to work with Jason unless there are others in the scene.So no romantics scenes!! Melissa Reeves no longer matters? Speak for yourself. After… Read more »

DAYS OF OUR LIVES
is so dull lately – the “new writing team” killed off Will (big mistake) and they allowed Sonny to leave (why couldn’t they recast him?) and Derrick is just gone without any real explanation – and Paul is left adrift. I don’t strictly watch for the gay characters (well, they are gone anyway) but I feel that there isn’t anything attracting me to Days.
I can’t stand this “Andre” character, his cornball acting and I also can’t take Stefano with his monosyllabic unconvincing dramatics – to me, the shows of yesterday featuring Sami, Will, EJ, Abigail, Sonny (just two years ago) were better than what they have going on now. The show is dull to me and without any gay characters to relate to –
well, my “days” of watching “days” may be coming to an end.

4ever DAYS
4ever DAYS

DAYS is far from dull.

Take a good, long, hard look at your comment. Your comment is very similar to comments made when Will and Sonny were on. The majority of those comments were paranoid Will and Sonny fans would say things like “Will and Sonny are the only good thing about DAYS” and “DAYS would be no good without Will and Sonny.”

You and other posters thought you could propell Will and Sonny by slamming the rest of DAYS, but it backfired. You could’ve and should’ve supported them without spreading hate for the others.

Will and Sonny were used to gain more viewers, but many of those viewers simply tore into the rest of DAYS, which caused potential viewers to stay away.

Will’s flesh is rotting off his bones because of “fans” like you!

Tim Welles
Tim Welles

Wow, holy cow, you are really out there.
Besides liking Will and Sonny, I also liked Paige (but they killed her off) and her romance with JJ, and I liked Sami Brady with EJ (but they killed him off and she is not a regular on the show) and to me, right now, the show is kind of dreary and needs a stronger driving storyline.
It’s my OPINION – I didn’t “hate” on anyone – I don’t happen to care for the character of Andre and I think Stefano’s lines are few and infrequent and not DELIVERED in a terribly convincing manner and I am expressing my OPINION.

Haven’t seen the new Phillip much, and I like to give new actors a chance to develop in their roles, but I have to admit that I liked and miss JKJ in the role. As someone said, he had a blend of being sweet and cunning at the same time. Not to mention those adorable dimples, smile, and mischievous eyes. With that said, willing to give the new Phillip a chance and time to see how he grows in the role.

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?

READ MORE

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.

Photo: NATAS

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.

Photo: JPI

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.

Nathan Varni Shares He Is No Longer ABC Programming Exec Overseeing General Hospital

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.

Photo: JPI

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.

Courtesy/NBC

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.

Photo: JPI

I know, it’s a shame.

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

Photo: JPI

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.
