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.
Instead of WilSon, would Days of Our Lives fans have been able to get on board a "Chonny" pairing? "Son-Cha"? I suck at squish names. In an interview with The Advocate, Freddie Smith revealed how initially there had been talk of a pairing between his character and Chad DiMera, played by Casey Deidrick!
You were on the job several weeks before you found out whom your love interest would be on Days. How fun was that guessing game?
Well, I was pretty sure coming into the role that Will would be my love interest, but then there was talk about maybe Chad being the love interest. Which would have be fine. He is an amazing guy and a great actor but I think is a bit too tall for me. [Laughs] READ MORE
