This afternoon, Guy Wilson came forth and confirmed on his official facebook page that he is indeed the new Will Horton of Days of our Lives! The casting secret was revealed the other night by Guy’s new cast mate, Jen Lilley (Theresa) on the Lather Up with Littany Blog Talk Radio series during her interview segment.
Wilson’s post stated, “Yes, I am the new ‘Will Horton’ on “Days of Our Lives”. This is a dream come true for me. But I do have some very big shoes to fill; Chandler Massey’s talent is beyond measure. I’ve always admired Chandler’s work and to now follow in his footsteps is truly an honor. I am so excited to share this adventure with all of you!!!”
It was a very nice overture for Guy to reach out to DAYS fans and share his enthusiasm on taking on the next phase of the character development and storylines of Will Horton!
And now the question that that will be answered over the next several months and in 2014, can fans accept Guy in the role of Will? Time will tell, but he certainly has some very strong acting credentials, and we hear from the people at DAYS, that he is quite a nice guy!
So, what do you think of Guy’s statement about stepping into Chandler’s shoes? Are you excited to know that the character of Will Horton will still be on the canvas and not be written out? Weigh-in!
