Outstanding Lead Actor Meets Outstanding Younger Actor – Geary & Massey!

On-Air On-Soaps got this very exclusive shot of Days of our Lives  Chandler Massey, the winner of the Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series, at last night’s 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards alongside  seven time Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series  Daytime Emmy winner, Anthony Geary from General Hospital!

During the telecast one of the features we liked was having the new guard- the Younger Actor nominees present the Emmy to the Lead Actor winner.    Chandler Massey, many now consider to be one of the finest young actors ever to debut on daytime, and it was also 30 years ago that Anthony Geary won his first Daytime Emmy!

Geary’s award was first up in the evening and during his acceptance speech stated,  “Thank you so much. I got lost, which I tend to do. John McCook, Bobby Woods, Darnell Williams, Maurice Benard, you are all dear friends of mine and I admire you all very much. And I feel a little bit guilty here.  I think you were all robbed. I want to say this is amazing to start the evening. We usually end it and the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 is flashing in my face by now. So I don’t really know how to handle this except to say it’s a good way for GH to start. We have 23 nominations which is pretty amazing since last year we were almost canceled in favor of a surefire ratings bonanza, Celebrity Boob Jobs Gone Wrong, I think it was.”

I’d like to thank the hardworking cast, crew and production team of GH, and Jill Farren Phelps for over three decades of friendship and support. Bob Guza for throwing my character into the existential abyss and giving me the blackest story I could ever hope for. I would like to thank all my directors who always seem to come down on my side when the chips are down. And, a special shout-out to Craig McManus and Crystal Kraft for great humor under fire.  And finally, to the finest acting team and acting family a guy could have: Jonathan Jackson, Julie Berman, Nathan Parsons and the incomparable Jane Elliot.”

As for Chandler Massey, his acceptance was emotional, short, but sweet, as the young star was poised and a bit overwhelmed, but thanked his family, his colleagues, and the DAYS writing and producing team for giving him such great story to play.

What do you think of the Emmy wins of Geary and Massey? Let us know!

Chandler Massey… So well deserved! Thank you for a tour de force, fete accompli, STAR TURN… As Will. You and Grandma Marlena, the fabulous Deidre Hall… are a constant delight…. a rich twosome. Mother Sammi and Dad Will…. A collective surround of high calibur.

Wasn’t Chandler a lil nervous…. rightly so… “earning” his wings… so to speak…

it amazes me, when you see, press, and these awards shows… that give us a glimpse in to actors “lives”.. that pique our curiosity… They give us must see, must watch… TV.

How an actor, can deliver, performances, day after day. I salute Daytime…. and Serials.

Chandler so deserved this. I don’t watch GH anymore, but I always thought Tony Geary was excellent.

Days did so well, and continues to with this story. Chandler, Deidre, Freddie, and others, as their characters were clued in have made the story really powerful, and not just a “stunt”. Drake had the best line this week, when he found out, he told Will “You’re gay, you’re out, and I”M proud”. Loved that !

I thought having the younger actor nominees present to lead actor/actress was great, although some of the young actor noms didn’t seem comfortable with each other or wanting to be there. Strange.

So happy Chandler won. He has been fantastic on Days.

I was happy to see the show. Did not like the non-existent ‘tribute’ to previously cancelled soaps. Don’t understand that OLTL got little to no nominations and no emmys. Hope we have better news regarding daytime television by this time next year. Many thanks to HLN for airing the show!

Congrats to Chandler Massey, have loved him as Will from day one. He’s seems like a nice young man and we already know Chandler is a terrific actor. Best Wishes for his future.

Chandler has really come into his own, developing the pathos of his role. Im sure an invitation to the enigmatic Atlanta secret society, Par 3, is sure to be his next accomplishment.

That would be almost too much to ask for, but undoubtedly, the pinnacle of his career!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!

Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
