Chandler Massey on DAYS Exit: "I'm Actually Glad Things Went Down The Way They Did"
Former Days of Our Lives star Chandler Massey is trying to be the bigger person, following his ouster from the NBC sudser. Although the actor kinda-sorta said in the Daytime Emmy press room he was leaving at the end of his contract in December, the soap has decided to go with a recast for Will Horton now! This was all after Ken Corday gave an interview saying the role wouldn't be recast.
TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan caught up with the blindsided-yet-grateful actor to clear a few things up. Here's some of what Massey had to say:
I'm actually glad things went down the way they did," Massey tells us. "I appreciate the producers for letting me out of my deal early because I can now pursue other opportunities I couldn't under contract. And, really, I want what's best for the show and the character. I'm honored to have played Will's coming-out story, and really proud of the Will and Sonny romance. It's important that they pass the torch to another actor and continue the story."
