7 November 30th, 2011 DAYS Chandler Massey Delivers Big Scoops on Will’s Coming Out Story!


Remember in On-Air On-Soaps recent video interviews from A Day of DAYS 2011 with James Scott (EJ) we discussed some upcoming “blackmail”? And later we spoke with Chandler Massey (Will) and Camila Banus (Gabi) to get a preview of what is going to happen with Will’s coming out story?  Well, we can now reveal, thanks to a very revealing interview with TV Guide with Chandler Massey, that Will’s coming out story is going to be one fraught with so much intense drama, that it could be one story for the record books. EJ and Will are going to both blackmail each other and Will’s secret sexuality will be used as leverage by EJ!   Plus, next week Will gets stinking drunk and let’s a roomful people know exactly what he thinks of them!  Here are a few excerpts below:

Chandler on EJ getting wise to Will’s sexuality leading to a mutual blackmail!:  “When Will’s plan to move in with Gabi fails, he doesn’t have anywhere else to go. He wants to leave Salem so he tries to blackmail EJ into giving him money. But then EJ turns the tables on Will and threatens to reveal he’s gay. It turns into this master-slave relationship.”

Chandler on EJ stooping this low to blackmail a young kid who is trying to come to grips with who he is sexually: “EJ is not afraid to go there, and I think it’s great that Days has the nerve. Our writers certainly have balls. I was shocked to read some of the scripts. Other shows might be afraid to go this direction with a story that’s this potentially sensitive but I think what we’re doing is so much richer and dramatic because of it. Daytime TV has fallen on hard times. Now is the time to take risks. It’s time to go big or go home.”

Chandler on Monday’s upcoming December 5th episode where Will gets drunk at a Christmas Party:  “Hell, yeah! And the whole family plus the mayor is there! Will decides he’s been through so much s–t that he deserves a drink. He drinks too much and gets rowdy, telling everybody exactly how he feels, which for an actor is always fun! Those are some of my favorite scenes I’ve ever shot and a great opportunity to show a wider range and a different side of Will. He’s lashing out at his mom, mostly. He’s calling her out on everything she’s done to everyone present in the room.”

So what do you think of the upcoming plot twists? Let us know!

    I literally just wrote down, “Will ruins Christmas party” on my calendar. This is going to be awesome! And EJ? Oh my!

    Chandler Massey is hitting it out of the park with every scene. One of the best young actors to ever come out of daytime.

    Chandler Massey is a good actor. I have enjoyed his work so far. But I do not think much of this upcoming gay storyline. It seems pointless. I think Days is spreading itself too thin creatively. You cannot please everybody. Viewers are not as patient as they have been in years past. Gay storylines are divisive. I think this is a wrong move for this show. Other storylines are good right now. Not looking forward at all to this one.

    I dont mind a gay story,but I wish it was not Will HORTON,
    should have been Sonny and Chad DiMera


  5. Mo says:

    Sounds like fun! Can’t wait. I’ll be watching.

    Just wondering how EJ figures out Will is gay. Does he catch him with a guy or does his gaydar just go off?

    Chandler Massey is awesome! The scene where he wrecked Maggie’s kitchen was phenomenal acting as far as I’m concerned! Emmy worthy!
