Fans of Chandler Massey and Days of Our Lives are set to have a wish granted they’ve been clamoring for for a long time!
Come Back and See Us Sometime, Will Ya?
Yes, it’s true, Days fans: Chandler Massey is coming back to Salem as the beloved legacy character, Will Horton.
“Chandler Massey… is coming back to Salem to reprise his popular role,” reported ew.com.
““I am so excited to be bringing Will back to Salem!” Massey told EW. “I can’t wait for the fans to see what we have planned. You won’t want to miss it!”
A Proud Mom
His on-screen mom, who’s also returning to Salem soon, Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady) also chimed in on the issue.
“I’m so excited to work with Chandler again. It will be fun to see what they have in store for our characters,”
A Complicated Past
Massey vacated the role of Will in 2014, but not before winning three Daytime Emmys for his work in it. Massey played the character when Will participated in the first kiss between two men on Days.
Guy Wilson then assumed the role, but his Will fell victim to the necktie killer in 2015, in a move that angered many, including Sweeney.
Bigger Than Any One Actor
Guy Wilson took to Twitter to say there are no hard feelings about which actor plays the role, he’s just glad that the iconic character is coming back to Salem. He’s also friends with Chandler Massey–so cute!
“Whether it were me, Chandler, or an entirely new recast, the world needs Will Horton. I couldn’t be more happy that Chandler Massey, a tremendous daytime actor, and friend to boot, is back in the saddle as the steward of such an important LGBTQ icon,” Wilson said. Cool guy, right?
What do you think Massey’s Will will be up to when he returns to good ol’ Salem, dear Soap Cities readers? Let us know, and keep checking back with us for updates on this breaking story!
