Enjoy highlights from the OutTakes interview with Freddie Smith, Chandler Massey and Christopher Sean (Sonny, Will and Paul, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) at the Day of DAYS Universal CityWalk fan event, November 11th, 2017.
FREDDIE, HOW SURPRISED WERE YOU WHEN YOU HEARD WILL WAS COMING BACK ONTO THE CANVAS?
Freddie: I may have heard maybe a little bit before the script came. When you spend some time with some people, you get a little inside scoop if you will. I was very thrilled. I know the fans were really excited to have WilSon come back just because of the way that it ultimately ended. And now it’s kind of like we get to make our new ending so we’re very excited.
CHANDER, HOW HAS IT BEEN COMING BACK TO “DAYS OF OUR LIVES” AFTER ALL THE TIME THAT YOU’VE BEEN AWAY?
Chandler: It’s been a trip. I had a lot of nerves because I didn’t know if I still had it, if I still had the character I knew; so I had to take some time to get back and remind myself this is who this is and watch the episodes that I wasn’t in to pick up more personality characteristics and important moments.
CHRISTOPHER, WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION TO FIND OUT PAUL WAS BEING DISHONEST ABOUT SEEING WILL. THAT WAS PRETTY OUT OF CHARACTER FOR HIM.
Paul: Actually to be honest, I was surprised because it’s not typical of Paul. I was happy because…I mean come on…who really wants Will back, right? (laughs) I was excited because it means conflict. But to see how many people it affected; that kind of sucks…and poor Paul, right?
YOU ALL HAVE YOUR OWN DAYS OF OUR LIVES EMOJIS. HAVE YOU USED THEM?
Christopher: It’s like every sentence for me as a period; there’s a Paul emoji. I send it a lot to my friends and family; they’re getting sick of it.
Chandler: Remember me? This is what I look like.
HAVE YOU SEEN THE FANS USE YOUR EMOJIS IN A CREATIVE WAY?
Chandler: Someone tweeted Sonny, Paul and Sami looking for Will; and they photoshopped their emoji faces over Scooby Doo characters. So at the end of every Scoopy Doo episode, they lift off the mask of the monster; and it was really Steve the librarian. But this time, it was Will’s face.
Christopher: I love emojis of Sonny and emojis of Paul just always together because it looks the best.
Chandler: Dark hair and dark hair; it’s a little too much dark hair. I think the best is a little contrast like light hair, dark hair. In emojiland, that’s highly coveted.
Christopher: Is it about how the outside looks or is it about the inside?
CHANDLER, HOW WAS IT WORKING WITH BRYAN DATTILO (LUCAS) AGAIN?
Chandler: So great; so great! Bryan brought his performance to a level I never saw him bring it before with the scenes in the church . Those were my first real scenes coming back; and I couldn’t have picked a better person to do the scenes with. He dispelled my nerves. It was my first day back; and you don’t know exactly if you’re going to be any good. But he has such a jovial and easygoing manner that really put me at ease and helped me go to work.
AND I WANT TO GIVE A SHOUT-OUT TO FREDDIE’S WEB SHOW, POSITIVE LIVING NATION. THERE WAS AN EPISODE RECENTLY WITH CHRISTOPHER SEAN THAT WAS SO INSPIRING.
Freddie: Christopher’s an amazing guy and I can’t wait to sit down with Chandler. We’ll want to come and hang. We just want to spread some positivity as much as possible.
Christopher: You’ve got to check it out. Freddie is so inspirational; and he’s going to feed you. When you listen to any one of these things that he does. It’s great. Freddie and Alyssa’s podcast. Check it out.
Freddie: I should take him everywhere with me…
