DAYS’ Shawn Christian on Daniel Jonas: “I Don’t See Him as a Womanizer”

Contrary to popular belief, and of course what we see playing out on our screens, Days of Our Lives‘ hearthrob Shawn Christian insists to Michael Fairman his randy character Dr. Daniel Jonas was not in fact the inspiration for Britney Spears‘ "Womanizer".
Michael Fairman: How do you justify Daniel’s motivations? Is he truly still a “womanizer”?

 Shawn Christian: Well, now I think he is more surprised that he is so taken with this woman, Chloe. So, no, I don’t see him as a womanizer and I never really did. What I do see is someone who lives life to the fullest. If he has feelings he will go with them, fortunately or unfortunately, without regards to the consequences. But, that’s how he lives his life, and unfortunately some people got wounded. Now he is left with pieces to pick up."

I don’t know why Christian is fighting the label so gigolo so hard. Soaps need good old-fashioned cads! For more of Fairman’s interview with Christian and his character’s latest onscreen lady love, Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe) go here.

    Yeah true we need at least one man-whore on the show.
    And for some reason the song That’s My Prerogative pops into my head when I think of Dirty Dr.Dan.

    Now if Lucas tested positive for an STD would he be able to guess how he got it? It would appear to be a No Duh moment for sure but with them writers they’d milk it for a month.

    Womanizer?? Come now. The man has slept with 2 women in a span of 14 months. And he has been in love with one woman now for what…5 months? I haven’t seen him trying to get anyone else in the sack. He’s hardly a cad.

    Daniel is an amazingly selfless man..why brand him a villian just because he went after an engaged woman?
    It takes two, you know.

    I can’t get enough of Dr Daniel Jonas and hope we get some really good scenes with Chloe in the future.

    I view Daniel the same way as Christian does. Daniel isn’t a manwhore, nowhere near it, if that were the case he wouldn’t spend his free time longing for and dreaming of Chloe, he would take other women to bed. Instead we get a scene of another attractive doctor pursuing him and Daniel rejecting her because he’s focused on the one woman whom he loves. If the writers wanted to portray him as a manwhore they could easily use some day players as sex buddies for Daniel but he’s shown as a one woman man now. And 3 possible love interests in over a year? That’s actually on par with most of the other characters on the show.

    Womanizer? Slut? Man Whore???? Where does this come from? I must be watching a different show. Since the character’s introduction he has slept with 2 women, Kate and Chloe. Kate was a very infrequent FWB thing (thank goodness) and Chloe has turned out to be the love of his life that he pines for and wants to be be happy in the choices she has made, even if she isn’t with him.Daniel is a good man who fell in love with someone who was engaged to a man she wasn’t “in love” with, a sad situation for everyone involved that was made worse by Chloe not being honest with Lucas (and herself)about her true feelings.
