After the upcoming October 29th false start where Lucas walks in on his son, Will, and his boyfriend, Sonny in an intimate moment, and has a bit of a freak out of what he sees, the guys finally have their day! According to TV Guide, the long awaited Will and Sonny sex scene will happen on the November 14th airshow of Days of our Lives!
Chandler Massey (Will) and Freddie Smith (Sonny) shared their thoughts and views on the love scene, especially how long it took for this scene to occur, the importance of this step in cementing that this is a couple to root for, and if there was any nervousness during the filming. Here are a few excerpts from the guys conversation with TVG below! Then, check out the preview clip of Will and Sonny’s sex scene!
Freddie Smith commented on the time it has taken for Will and Sonny to get-together: “It’s allowed the audience to get to know our characters and to get to a place where they are really rooting for them to get together. I don’t expect anyone will think the sex scene is controversial. Hopefully, we’re past that. This isn’t a story about two gay guys. It’s about two human beings who truly love each other.”
Daytime Emmy winner, Chandler Massey stated: “It’s refreshing to have a couple in soaps who haven’t been thrown together too quickly. We took our time before getting to the sex and the characters and the show are better for it. But (laughs) I will also say that it’s about time!”
On the sex scene itself, Smith revealed: “Chandler and I were much more nervous about our first kissing scene. Our hearts were really pounding during that one but it worked out great because our characters’ hearts were pounding, too. Since then Will and Sonny have done enough flirting and kissing and cuddling that, as actors, we weren’t nervous about finally getting to the sex. The way we shot it is very real and passionate but tasteful. Chandler and I are comfortable with each other and it shows. We have good chemistry. We trust each other.”
Massey weighed in on where the couple will go from here: “Consummating the relationship will make them bond in a much more intimate way. I guess this finally makes them an official couple to the people of Salem and it will be no big deal. Everyone is going to recognize it and accept it. Yes, even Lucas!”
