Another Gay Character Will Be Featured On Days Of Our Lives

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayLGBT


SO great!

NBC's relatively conservative soap Days of Our Lives will feature a second gay character in the upcoming weeks.

The character of Will Horton, played by Chandler Massey is the second character to come out on the show. The role of Sonny, played by Freddie Smith, joined the show last June, as a "good-natured young man who returns home to join his family." The show will explore his journey toward self-acceptance, which Chandler says:

"I'm thrilled to be able to portray my character in an empowering way that will show his struggle to accept who he is. It is my hope that this storyline will inspire others to be true to themselves as well."

Co-Exec Producer Greg Meng also put his two-cents about the character of Will, saying:

"We are excited to have the encouragement and support from both NBC and Sony to tell the inspiring story of a young man learning who he is as he defines and creates his relationships with others."

Viewers are already speculating whether or not Sonny and Will get together on the show. Actor Smith says:

"I'm going to be surprised. There are a lot of guys on the show, so it’s going to be interesting to see who I end up falling for. Someone new? Someone on the show? We all make jokes, 'Who am I going to make out with first?' It’s going to be fun to see."

How fantastic of DOOL to have not one, but TWO gay characters on their show. And they're both hawties, so of course we want to see them hook up on the show!

    Hope it's not Sonny. There is ZERO chemistry between him and Will. Massey clearly has the good looks and talent thing going for him. How soon until he jumps ship and starts doing films? Sooner than later I suppose, especially given the soaps declining ratings. Then again, this storyline could be the thing that saves Days from cancellation.
