DAYS' Freddie Smith Thinks Casey Deidrick is Too Tall For Sonny and Chad to Get It On!






Instead of WilSon, would Days of Our Lives fans have been able to get on board a "Chonny" pairing? "Son-Cha"?  I suck at squish names. In an interview with The Advocate, Freddie Smith revealed how initially there had been talk of a pairing between his character and Chad DiMera, played by Casey Deidrick!

You were on the job several weeks before you found out whom your love interest would be on Days. How fun was that guessing game?

Well, I was pretty sure coming into the role that Will would be my love interest, but then there was talk about maybe Chad being the love interest. Which would have be fine. He is an amazing guy and a great actor but I think is a bit too tall for me. [Laughs]

Oh, Freddie. In the words of Miley Cyrus, it's all about the climb.

You know, there's still a chance! Chad is going to be sad and vulnerable here real soon with Melanie leaving ... he's going to need to lean on someone's shoulder ... and we know how this writing team feels about guys flip flopping on their sexuality when they are down in the dumps ... oh wait, is that rule only for gay guys?

I would love for Chad to be bisexual. Who says he can't.

And there was always talk about Chad attracted to men by the DAYS fanbase. Some love Deidrick's chemistry with Chandler Massey and I'm sure Smith could sizzle with him too.

Will should get it on with Chad.

i hope Casey doesn't leave the show when his contract is up, like his girlfriend Molly Burnett.

I wouldn't mind a Chad/Sonny pairing except for the fact that, like his brother EJ, Chad seems like a total snatch hound. They'd have to do a whole bunch of creative writing--and I think we all know how (not)creative this set of writers is based on this week's eps--to make Chad even bisexual.

Chonny or Chill would have been much better options than WilSon. I hope the too tall thing was a joke.

Why am I feeling as though this may come to pass? Combine what Freddie said about Chad once being considered as a love interest for Sonny, along with this current article, along with the feeling that they may be trying to "de-gay" Will as much as possible, along with a recent interview with Freddie saying that Chad and Sonny reconnect. In any case, I wouldn't mind Chad and Sonny at all. Or is it Channy? Or maybe Chonny? Or perhaps SoChad? LOL.

Wilson should never have even been taken into consideration. They have ZERO romantic chemistry.

I am with my twin Miry all the way it is Chill or the highway! Those boys have chemistry out the yingyang. Sonny doesn't seem to have any heat at all, which is a problem. He is a good looking guy and nice to boot but on the scoval scale of heat he is about a 10 (not even luke warm). I know that Chad and Will could burn up the road and can not even figure out why the show didn't go that direction from the begining. Wouldn't it be funny if Will did get that Gabby pregnant then she leaves town and leaves the baby with Will and Chad to raise together? Now that is a story!

If Sonny and Chad got together they could call them Demeriakis! Long name but I kind of like it.

Oh Freddie...my bf is 13 inches taller than me. I think it would be sexy! But Chill would be sexier!

Mark!!! Hey Twin, hey!! Wink
(Haven't seen you in awhile, hope all is well!!)

And once again, we are totally in sync! CHILL is where it is at!! They definitely have the chemistry & the HEAT! I just remember all that eye-sex they used o have, lol. Plus, they are friends in real life & that translates onscreen. I recall that DC interview of the boys when they did that ACME comedy show. Sooo much chemistry even over the "phone"!

I have TRIED to warm up to Sonny (& the idea of him being paired with Will), but he is just um, asexual!!! LoL, he's so what's the word... milquetoast! Yeah, that's it. He is just boring!
I like his friendship with Will, I like that he is supportive & was a good talk-to for Will. But other than that, his character is kind of a dud to me. Maybe this bullying storyline will give him some personality.
