Freddie Smith and Chandler Massey explain their shocking Days of Our Lives departure. Check it out here--->>
On today's episode, Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis), Chandler Massey (Will Horton) and Alyssa discuss the shocking Wilson departure from Days of Our Lives.
Massey stated, "I guess it starts with our long hiatus, right? Assuming that we’d come back sometime in late January, mid-February, which happened. I know one of the producers reached out to me about doing a couple—six episodes over three week. And then I was told that there aren’t any—the deal’s not finalized for the show yet, so they’re not handing out contracts but afterwards, that we would deal with that when the time comes. And then back to work and then we started getting and reading the scripts… [laughs]"
Smith noted, "It just didn’t look good. Well, ’cause we didn’t know, ‘cause when I first got a call about the six episodes—I think I hit you up and said, 'Hey, do you have just six episodes?’ because I was just curious. I was like, ‘What’s going on here?’ This is before we got scripts, too, so we were off on this long break and we were, like, waiting—‘cause it was kind of left off. When we stopped in Thanksgiving, there was no resolution to anything. It was like—I think the next episode is later that night, nine weeks later, later that night. So I was like, ‘Oh, it doesn’t seem like we’ll go anywhere. We’ll be back.’ And then we get a call and then you and I start doing sleuth work. We're like hitting up other cast members, like, did anyone get a contract? And everyone said, like, 'No, it’s just six episodes or a handful of episodes,' so we’re like oh, okay, we’re good."
