Days of Our Lives breakout star Chandler Massey (Will) may be one of SoCal's rising talents, but he's a good 'ol Georgia boy at heart! I was plum tickled to see Massey interviewed on my local Atlanta NBC station, 11 Alive, recently. Watch the Norcross, Georgia-bred lad's touching homecoming after the jump! READ MORE
After spending a year praising Days of Our Lives for the groundbreaking coming out storyline for Will Horton (Chandler Massey), The Advocate has taken a stance on Massey's on-screen aunt, Melissa Reeves', (Jennifer) support of Chick-fil-A — a company which has spent millions to fund anti-LGBT groups. Kudos to The Advocate! READ MORE
Is this screencap a metaphor of Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny's (Freddie Smith) chemistry? Take your best Caption This shot at this scene from Days of our Lives.
The undeniable chemistry between Days of Our Lives bad boy EJ DiMera (James Scott) and newly out, gay coed Will Horton (Chandler Massey) was a hot topic at the 39th Annual Daytime Emmys this past week. We Love Soaps' Roger Newcomb caught up with Scott on the red carpet at the Creative Arts Daytime Emmys, where the actor admitted to EJ knowing exactly what he's doing in terms of using Will's sexuality to "exert power" over the lad! Here's an excerpt from the interview:
WE LOVE SOAPS TV: Our viewers love the chemistry between EJ and Will (Chandler Massey). What's it like working with Chandler?
James Scott: First of all, Chandler Massey should win the award for Younger Actor. He's the most talented young actor that I've ever worked with.
They [Will and EJ] have this really interesting relationship. I think of it as being a mentor/mentee relationship - almost a father/son relationship. It has some really interesting dynamics within that, because of course you have Will's sexuality and you have the fact that EJ is a man who is not over and above, like, walking that line...
I mean, I don't think there's any question regarding EJ's sexuality, but he knows how to exert power over people.
WE LOVE SOAPS TV: It would send Sami over the edge.
James Scott: Maybe that's a good reason to do it. Sami, you marry me, or I marry your boy! It's up to you.
Scott also fielded questions about EJill from Soap Socialite Jason Spitzer on the actual Daytime Emmys red carpet. Watch the two chats below!
“I didn't hear the name that they called, but all I heard was my Dad go ‘Yeah!’ because my Dad was sitting right next to me, so that's how I knew. Then I went up and flubbed the speech!” Massey added, “It was crazy! I definitely did not think it was going to happen this year. Not at all.”
Days of Our Lives’ Chandler Massey (Will) won the award for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama series at the 39th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on June 23. Congratulations to Massey!
