Billy Flynn Shares His Thoughts On Abigail's Demise on Days of Our Lives! Learn more here--->>
Billy Flynn (Chad, Days of Our Lives) recently opened up in an interview in Soap Opera Digest magazine. He spoke about Marci Miller’s (Abigail “Abby”, Days of Our Lives) departure from the sudser, his thoughts on the matter, and what it means for his character, Chad, going forward. Below we have featured a few highlights from the interview.
As previously reported, Miller didn’t want to remain on contract at Days, and was open to staying on in a recurring status. However, the show elected to move in a different direction and made the decision to kill Abby versus Miller staying on in a recurring status. Flynn spoke about how sad he is to see Miller go. He loves working with her, the “Chabby” pair work really well together and are a great love story. And although Abby’s demise is “very sad” he thinks it was the best decision. “You can’t just keep writing her off. I would rather have them do this than continue to make her go crazy and torture her in those crazy ways.”
In addition, he mentioned Miller’s exit, and the subsequent decision to kill Abby happened so quickly that there wasn’t much time to prepare. Flynn was “thrust into this storyline” and though Abby has “died” before he has found this go around particularly challenging. “It’s nice that people have said I’ve done good work. It’s been hard. I’m having a harder time with this storyline than I’ve had with storylines in the past. I don’t know whether that’s because I miss Marci or personally how I feel about them killing Abigail. Or it could be 100 different reasons. Part of the reason the storyline is hard is because you feel like you have to do it justice. It’s a lot of stress to put on your shoulders.”
Fans of Flynn and Chad will be happy to hear that Flynn is excited about the next chapter for Chad. “You have got to get through this, and it’s really hard stuff, but hopefully you’ll get to some really interesting story. I think that the writing has given me a ton of stuff to play and to do. I hope that I’m living up to what they’ve given me.”
