DC's Top 10 Male Entertainers of 2012
No. 3: Chandler Massey, Days of Our Lives
The most compelling story Days of Our Lives has told in years has been Will Horton's journey as a young gay man in the fictional burb of Salem, U.S.A. Twentysomething actor Chandler Massey managed to more than hold his own with veteran scene partners like Deidre Hall (Marlena), Alison Sweeney (Sami), James Scott (EJ) and Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), as Will's story took center stage in 2012. With Massey's deft, emotionally-transparent performances, he proved himself to be one of DAYS'—and daytime's—hottest commodities.
Whether dealing with being awkwardly outed to his cop grandpa in order to beat a murder change, or dealing with his complicated feelings for poster child of gay self-acceptance Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith), Massey brought it. DAYS better make sure this Daytime Emmy winner is locked into an ironclad, years-long contract, because Lord knows they need him.
