Tis true! Daytime Emmy winner Freddie Smith is on his way back to Salem as Sonny Kiriakis! The actor who began filming new episodes several months ago is slated to make his on-screen return to the canvas sometime in July!
This week’s Soap Opera Digest which will hit newsstands tomorrow and Friday has the exclusive first intel. Smith admits he is very excited to return to DAYS, and now the big question on everyone’s mind is … will Sonny reconnect with his ex, Paul Narita (Christopher Sean) and therefore reignite DAYS having a same-sex couple on the long-running series?
Freddie’s last appearances on DAYS were returning to Salem for the funeral of his husband, Will Horton (Guy Wilson) who was brutally killed by necktie serial killer, Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson). Smith was widely praised for his gut-wrenching performances in the aftermath.
Now with a reset button, and a new DAYS co-head writing team, will Sonny’s story captivate viewers once again?
