Daytime Confidential's Top 10 Soap Newcomers of 2010
No. 4: Chandler Massey, Days of our Lives
For years Days of Our Lives fans have begged for a SORAS’ed Will Horton, capable of holding his own opposite the Mother of All Teen Moms aka Samantha Jean Brady (Alison Sweeney). In 2010 we got our wish in the form of Chandler Massey. With Massey in the role in 2010, DAYS finally had an actor capable of the challenge of taking Sami to task one minute and showing her unwavering love and support the next. Whether Will was checking his mom over her dysfunctional relationship with EJ DiMera (James Scott) or scheming alongside her to cover up Sami’s latest scandalous stunt, their relationship proved believable and heartfelt in 2010. Sami finally has someone in her family to cover her back and we say it’s a long time coming! Then there’s Massey’s insanely hot chemistry with Casey Deidrick, who plays Will’s best frenemy Chad. While we aren’t sure if the homoerotic subtext these two added to their scenes in 2010 was intentional or not, it’s no wonder fans online are praying for these boys to “Chill” together in 2011.
