With John (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena (Deidre Hall) gone, Sonny (Freddie Smith) told Will (Chandler Massey) he wanted to do something with him they’d never done before. That turned out to be climbing a wall. It also provided an opportunity for them to talk about Will being “upside down” [insert your own puns here]. Apparently it takes strapping him into a harness and hanging him from ropes to get Will upside down. Then there was the discussion of Yak butter...I can honestly say I never expected the words Yak butter tea to be said on a soap. READ MORE
As I watched Days of Our Lives on Monday, I had a moment where I wondered if Salem was suddenly in a parallel universe. Surprisingly, it was Sami (Alison Sweeney) who provided the unanticipated moment. While asking Rafe (Galen Gering) if Nicole’s (Arianne Zucker) baby was really his, she offered to help cover up the secret if it wasn’t Rafe’s child. Quite frankly, this is something you don’t see happen very often.
Meanwhile, Nicole was wracked with grief over the loss of another baby when she discovered Daniel (Shawn Christian) and Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) together at the hospital. She fled to a patient room where she broke down and began destroying everything. READ MORE
Lucas Horton (Bryan Dattilo) has had to adjust and readjust several times since discovering his "nephew" Will (Chandler Massey) was really his son on Days of Our Lives all those years ago. Judging from the reaction Bill and Kate's (Lauren Koslow) bastard lad had to seeing his son playing doubles tonsil tennis with Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith), Lucas is in for even more adusting! Watch the video below, then tell us what you think Lucas was thinking in the comments!
EXCLUSIVE: Days of Our Lives' Freddie Smith Dishes Bullying, Scandal Crest and Sonny "Showing Some Skin" in SalemBy Jamey Giddens on September 13, 2012
Days of Our Lives hunk Freddie Smith has been making a lot of headlines lately. His character Sonny Kiriakis recently endured a gay bashing and now is posed for a star-crossed romance with Will Horton played by Chandler Massey. As if all of that isn't enough to keep Smith busy, he spends his free time speaking out about bullying and has joined the cast of ACME's upcoming improv soap Scandal Crest.
I caught up with Smith to talk Scandal Crest (He'll be playing Romeo Jones, secret lover to Ophelia Sterling played by Molly Burnett!), exercising an actor's muscles and to find out when we're going to see Sonny get some in Salem!
Daytime Confidential: You're a busy man, Mr. Smith! Your character Sonny Kiriakis is beginning a love story with Will Horton (Chandler Massey) on NBC's Days of Our Lives; you're speaking out against bullying and now you're doing ACME's new improvised soap opera Scandal Crest. You must have one of those amazing smartphones like the one Samuel L. Jackson hawks in those commercials, that cooks your meals, schedules your appointments, etc.?
Freddie Smith: Yeah, I have been very busy lately which is always good for me. Luckily, my schedule allows me to do all of these amazing things at once.
DC: What exactly is an improvised soap? I'm kinda having a hard time picturing baby switches, demon possessions and DNA test result swaps without benefit of a 70-page script!
This is the first time I have ever heard of an improv soap as well. That is one of the reasons I hopped on board so quickly. I feel there are no limitations having a improv soap, so I'm excited to be working on the project with such an amazing cast. Seeing as there is no script, who knows how crazy the storylines will become? They could be even more exciting than baby switching!
DAYS BYTES: A cup of black coffee costs a dollar. The look on Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) face when Sonny (Freddie Smith) said he was interested in Will — PRICELESS. Now that Adrienne disapproves of Sonny being with Will, I sort of, just a tad, ever-so-slightly want them together. Why is that?
Sami (Alison Sweeney) wanted to give Will (Chandler Massey) a present, but his first reaction was to wonder what his mother has up her sleeve. Will told his mother if she wanted to get back together with EJ he’d root for her.
