Funniest podcast to date! Carolyn is so witty! Can’t wait to see her appear on True Blood tomorrow!

I enjoyed James Scott. He is such a gratious person to have admitted he was disappointed in not receiving a pre-Emmy nom, and to further praise the work of the other actors who did get nominated. I am hoping that James will indeed get an Emmy in the future. He is a phenominal actor. James is the leading male actor on Days, and I faithfully tune in when he is on. I am an EJami fan. I had the pleasure of meeting him in Ohio, and he was not above chatting with me for about 30 minutes. Mr. Fairman thanks for having James Scott on your podcast.

great podcast! I love that James called in. His opinions about the show are always thought-provoking and interesting. I wish he had more of a role behind the scenes; they could use his input.
I don’t blame Carolyn on James’ voice. It is VERY sexy.

What a great podcast! Michael, Carolyn…I love you both. I’m sorry I don’t know Dillon’s work but it was nice to meet him as well. Jen Lilley has done a fabulous job as Maxie (tho, unfortunately, I can’t bring myself to watch GH at the moment due to the dead baby s/l).

James Scott and Ali Sweeney are THE reason I watch DAYS. James gave me the impression he was a bit disappointed that the “grief sex” was the scene nominated for the Emmy but, IMHO, that scene was about SO much more than sex. Sami instinctively sought out EJ that night to share her fears about their child. She found EJ in a heap on the floor, took him in her arms and consoled him. When the television news confirmed their worst nightmare, their emotions ranged from denial and disbelief to indescribable grief to anger to frustration and it all lead to that tortured kiss and embrace and beyond. I will never forget their pain in that moment and THAT is what makes it Emmy worthy.

Another great interview as always Michael I alway enjoy hearing James Scott take on things I am happy he is excited about the upcoming stories at Days I too am sorry he did not receive an emmy nomination this year but regardless no mattter the material he always delivers and gives 110% in his performances and I thank him for his hard work and dedication

Dillon seems like a “nice” guy , but has so little to add, and is so soap-uninformed, a lot of this conversation was a lot about nothing. (What happened to Prospect Park, guys?)

Great interview. Looking forward to more scenes between E.J. and Sami. James and Ali rock!!! Go EJami!

Very nice podcast, Michael! My favorite part was hearing from James Scott, because he always has such interesting and intelligent insights, and anything he says sounds 10 times better in that gorgeous accent!

Susan

What a joy to listen to James Scott being a true professional. Never in the whole interview did he give away any “spoiler” etc. This shows a true, committed acting professional. He wants to keep the people viewing. In addition to being a truly dynamic actor!

I will be honest he and Alison Sweeney are the real reasons why I have returned to watching DOOL because there is something there with them when ALLOWED to be in a scene. IMHO of DOOL was smart they would FINALLY write a story for Ej and Sami ( look at 50 Shades of Grey as a reference Days).

Thank you Michael for such a great podcast! You are truly a fantastic interviewer whom asks the questions that we the supporters of day time drama want to ask. THANKS!

Wish you would have asked James about Renee Jones or even how he would feel if Eileen Davidson came back as his mom, but overall, really good podcast. Please don’t leave these off to once every 6-9 months! They’re really enjoyable!

Thank you Michael for another wonderful great James Scott interview! It’s always a pleasure to hear from him and his POV on DAYS and what he thinks of the show and his character! I am really looking forward to his upcoming storyline with Sami. They are just amazing together!

Michael once again you have delivered a great interview with James Scott. I so agree w/CH that just the sound of James’ voice is worth a listen. It was nice that James did not spoil what is coming up. Hopefully Tomlin/Whitesell & NBC have a clear vision of what will bring DOOL out of the doldrums in which it presently resides. I hope that vision includes EJ becoming his own man, out of Stefano’s expectations. I still wait for Days to give EJami a real story that involves only EJ & Sami. Also a big thanks to you for sharing a glimpse of JS at the Tech Awards. Always the gentleman and huge soap fan, Michael you are my favorite Soap reporter.

Chandler Massey Talks The Emotional Life Of Will Horton; Rob Scott Wilson & Victoria Konefal Share Insight On Key Scenes On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

Viewers of Days of our Lives recently watched Will (Chandler Massey) cross over to the light as he hovers near death, and sees his great grandma Caroline (Peggy McCay).  While happily Will survives, Caroline did not.  And through Will’s trauma of surviving a brain tumor, fans were treated to touching scenes between Chandler Massey and his on-screen love interest Freddie Smith (Sonny).

In addition, Will had the difficult task, at the time, to have to tell his beloved grandmother, Marlena (Deidre Hall) that he was dying in more moving and emotional scenes.  So what did Chandler Massey have to share about all the drama? Check out the latest episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast and find out!

With June being Pride Month in many cities in the U.S. and countries around the world, Chandler also weighs-in on the importance of Will as an LGBTQ character on the canvas on television, and in particular, on daytime.  In this podcast, Chandler relates how it’s been amazing to make a difference to people and their lives.  He shares the story of how a man told him in a letter that he watched Days of our Lives with his mother and through watching the storyline; where Will came out to Marlena, how it inspired him to have that conversation with his own mother at that time.  He thought his mother would not understand or accept him, but because she watched Days and saw Will’s journey to come out, she supported her son and who he was.  As Chandler explained, it was confirmation that the story was helping people.

Later, #Cin fans get a treat when Rob Scott Wilson and Victoria Konefal sit-down on the podcast and offer up commentary on some of their most recent and pivotal scenes.  Rob and Victoria take us through cabin fires and police station scenes, and their on-screen love story – a must listen for viewers who are rooting for this duo against all odds in Salem.
