There has been no more endearing on-screen relationship than that of Marlena Evans and Will Horton on Days of our Lives! Through Will’s struggles to come out, it was Marlena who was his confidante and showed him unconditional love and helped him accept who he is.
Those pivotal scenes and the initial storyline were portrayed by two-time Daytime Emmy winner Chandler Massey and soap icon Deidre Hall (Marlena)! Now that Chandler has left the NBC soap opera and Guy Wilson has taken over the the role of Will, some fans have yet to come around to accepting Wilson in the role created by the beloved Massey.
In a new post on her Deidre Hall Fan Page on facebook, the actress shared a photo of herself and Guy Wilson and offered up this statement to fans of the long running NBC daytime drama: “So much has been said about Guy, who has taken over the role of Will. For my 2 cents, there is no more difficult job that replacing a cherished character when the creator has chosen to move on. Such is the job that Guy has accepted. Chandler left the show after winning 2 Emmys and our hearts. Guy is a dear man and an exquisite professional. He deserves our energy and appreciation and he has mine completely.”
Once again Deidre shows class personified in her statement on Chandler’s departure and Guy’s arrival. What do you think of Deidre’s post on giving Guy Wilson a chance to win over our hearts in the role of Will? Comment below!
