Daytime icon, Deidre Hall (Marlena) took to her official facebook page to share her sentiments, and that of the DAYS cast as they watched the brutal murder scene of Will Horton on last Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives, which also marked the final episode of Guy Wilson (Will).
Deidre posted: “It was very difficult to see the killing of Will on air. We all stood paralyzed and fixed on the screen in the make up room. Guy was terrific in his portrayal. Seeing the show on air brought back the terrible sadness we all felt when the scenes were being shot. I have seen him a number of times since he left and am happy to say he is doing well.”
As fans of the long-running NBC soap opera know, the character of Marlena and the character of Will had a very special bond. The powers-that-be connected the two as Marlena (Will’s grandmother) was the person that helped Will come to terms with his sexuality, and accepted and loved him fully, and unconditionally.
