“…and the Emmy goes to” – Chandler Massey. geez! I miss his scenes with Grandma. it takes your breath away to see him then and now… blossomed… full grown almost. about to be a parent. Sonny – it’s nice to see him being acknowledged for one of DAYS BEST stories in such a long time. has to be a complete set to pull this all off. not having seen Fenmore…. He surprised me… where is all this cold chilly demeanor coming from…. I was watching this offspring of Michael and Lauren … and, he surprised me. Bryant – eh! uninteresting…… Read more »

Everyone will want their favorite to win, no matter who is better than the other it comes down to who loves whom ..
that is how the emmies have always been.. it goes by peoples favorite tastes, likes and dislikes, not the actual acting qualities. etc..

Chandler Massey has this one this year. His scenes opposite Deidre Hall were some of my favourite during the re-boot. And I miss them interacting. And her home? Miss that, too!

It’s great to see so much young talent in soaps – all are credible performances. However, one actor really stands out in this group – and that is Chandler Massey – definitely my pick in this category for the Emmy win.

Judging the scenes by themselves, this one is hard to call. Chandler Massey cries well; Bryton James captured the elation beautifully, but missed out when expressing worry; and Max Ehrich shows potential, but these scenes were just too Disney Channel. I’d have to go with Freddie Smith. The scene, though simple, was straight-forwardly played and the actor’s approach was a mix of honesty and delicate trepidation.

Nice call – great take on Freddie Smith. Honestly, i’m torn between Chandler and Freddie… and… given how long these two have been on DAYS… and are “real”ing – still – to this day… both beautifully delivering a vital storyline… that is wonderful to watch and share. i’m elated, ecstatic, and grateful that NBC/Sony/DAYs chooses to share a gay story… it’s romantic – loving – caring… all the elements of what we know to be unlike ourselves… simply put… we all have the same emotions. Freddie Smith is the foundation and solid force alongside Chandler…. they both agreed and heard… Read more »

Chandler Hans down. This is from someone who has shut the show off , but this guy plays Will from the heart. My heart went out to him and his pain. D.Hall did a great job in these clips also.

For me it is only between CM and FS. Both were very good performances! Chandler’s had so much more depth and range and sheer heartbreak. Freddie’s was quiet and almost effortless… but filed with restarined emotion. I would be happy with either winning though…. I think Chandler deserves it if it is not a tie! I miss the relationship between Will and Marlena and wish they had more of those great scenes with the two of them. All of them should be proud of their performances and their nominations! There are some great talents coming! Best of luck to all!!!

Chandler Massey has the strongest reel and Max Ehrlich is a spoiler. Days should take younger actor again

‘Days of our Lives’ to Honor James Reynolds’ 40th Anniversary as Abe Carver with Special Episode

As DAYS viewers witnessed on Friday’s episode, Abe has been shot in the park, after Carmine pulls out a gun, and Jake (Brandon Barash) tries to apprehend him.  Jake rushes to Abe’s side and calls an ambulance and he is rushed to University Hospital.  Once there, Abe eventually flatlines, while Lani (Sal Stowers), Paulina (Jackee Harry) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are besides themselves with worry.

This sets the stage for Monday’s episode where Abe will go into the light, as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) works to save his light and while he hovers between life and death, DAYS fans are treated to the special 40th anniversary episode of James Reynolds as Salem’s Abe Carver.   The Daytime Emmy-winning actor, (he won Lead Actor in 2018) began his Salem journey when he first aired back on October 29th, 1981.

While Abe revisits the past, he will meet up with his late wife and love of his life, Lexie, only according to Soap Opera Digest, Renee Jones was not available to be a part of the milestone episode. So, in a pivot another actress was brought in.

Reynolds told SOD on the Lexie appearance, “The young actress they brought in to be part of this was just wonderful“n giving the essence of (their) relationship and communicated beautifully, just beautifully, in her face and her eyes, as Renee did quite so often.”  He added, “I was kind of transported, actually.”

In addition, James continues to be the the longest-running black actor in the same role in television history.

Check out the latest NBC promo featuring Abe’s life hanging in the balance below.

DAYS Head Scribe, Ron Carlivati, Shares On Marlena’s Possession 2.0: “We Decided John Needs To Get On To This Sooner Than He Did In The Original, Because That’s What The Audience Would Expect”

As viewers of NBC’s Days of our Lives are watching the revisiting of the classic possession storyline revisited with its 2021 version 2.0, the stage is being set for plenty of devilish drama, now that good doc, Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) is once again in the grips of evil.

We have already seen her with yellow eyes, conjuring up some demonic plans, and of course, the devil trying to pull the wool over the eyes of Marlena’s husband, John Black (Drake Hogestyn).

Back in the 1994/95 version of this storyline, Father John emerged and exorcised the demon from Marlena, so he knows a thing or two about being possessed, and the horrors it caused to Marlena, and the town of Salem 25 years ago, and as we have seen John is very, very concerned about all this talk of Marlena being possessed by the devil from the script that Johnny (Carson Boatman)  is set to make into a film on Sami’s life story.

Current Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati, spoke with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue on newsstands now, about his plans and the creation of the 2021 possession storyline. Ron revealed that John is not going to be in the dark for long, sharing: “John has been through this, so the devil isn’t going to be able to pull the wool over his eyes the way he did the first time.”

Carlivati also added: “Even though all soap opera stories, I would argue, depend on some characters being a little bit dumb, in this case, we decided John needs to get on to this sooner than he did in the original because that’s what they audience would expect.  Look for the story to move along at a pretty good clip. We are not rushing, anything by any means – we are having so much fun with the story, but it was important to us that John not look stupid here so he starts to suspect something is wrong with her pretty soon.”

So, are you glad that John will not be completely dumped? Will Father John return to save the day? Are you enjoying the story thus far? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Then, check out our recent interview with Ron all about the creation of DAYS limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem still streaming on Peacock.
