According to Nelson Branco, they are! Chandler and Camila will both tape their last scenes at the end of this year. Considering that Days tapes 3 months in advance, we will still see Chandler and Camila well into 2014 before they officially are off of our TV screens.

The rumor about Chandler has

The rumor about Chandler has been going on since the Emmys - he gave an interview where he said he wants to go back to school at some point. But there has been nothing confirmed yet. Days still has time to try to make Chandler such an offer that he will want to stay.

With Camila, I haven't heard anything except this NB report. And it's true, usually NB has first dibs only on Y&R, and there is often right.

But this does open up a lot of questions. Will they want to recast Will? And if not, what will happen to Sonny? It will be a shame if Freddie has to leave the show just because Chandler does - especially given the work Freddie has done this year, as opposed to monotone Chandler. But I highly doubt they would create another front-burning romantic relationship with Sonny, which means if the actor stays, he will end up backburning.

If Camila IS leaving, I hope they won't even consider recasting. That role is nothing if not unnecessary. She could have been killed off or shipped off eons ago, and no one would have even noticed. So, this time, if she does leave, make it happen. Kill her off or ship her off, thank you.

They should have kept Arianna

They should have kept Arianna and Killed off Gabbi. But, it is what it is now. They definitely need to try their damnedest to keep Chandler, but if not possible, they need to find an Emmy worthy replacement. Will is a legacy character and we don't need a newbie (I know, I know....there are SOME exceptions).

So, that's Chad, Gabbi and Will that are leaving (possibly? Chad, definitely). What about Sonny? I heard that quite a few of the young set were leaving..,... Anyone have any news??????

Both of the characters they

Both of the characters they play have done things that could land them in jail. According to Days' logic (not real life's) Will could be charged for shooting EJ and Gabi for having Melanie kidnapped.

However, I'm pretty sure Chandler will be recasted. He's a core character. I'd prefer that Gabi just leave and take the baby. That child limits storyline possibilites for Will.

Nelson Branco and the DC are

Nelson Branco and the DC are always on the same page. Jamey, Jillian have good sources and if you listen to other podcast Nelson said he her MAB was about to be given the boot a month prior, so his sources are as good too.

However his blog has a pay-wall, but you have to give him some credit though, he on twitter given out some good stuff-

Both actors said at the Emmys

Both actors said at the Emmys they're leaving at the ends of their respective contracts. Chandler said it in the press room after his win, and Camila said it to Nelson exclusively on the red carpet.

The reason we haven't posted

The reason we haven't posted the news on the blog is that Chandler's contract isn't up for awhile, December I think (Don't quote me) and with DAYS shooting four months in advance, he could very well still be airing as Will until the NEXT Daytime Emmys. Wink

NB is usually right...whether you like him or not. He seems to have a lot of inside sources, and also has a lot of the soap community confide in him.

Thanks for the conformation

Thanks for the conformation or clarification, Jamey.

The rumor about Massey leaving has been going on for a while now. So it's not really surprising that he's leaving. I'm surprised about Banus though. She grow on me these past few months. However can't say that I'm going to miss Gabi.

My guess would be that either Will or Gabi leaves town for some job opportunity, having the other one following because of the kid. Don't think that Freddie Smith has to leave too. Sonny can shine on his own and get a new love interest.

I hope Chandler doesn't

I hope Chandler doesn't leave, he's fantastic as Will. I hope they throw enough money at him to stay, or at least sign on for one more year. I know he would be smart to leave, since he's cute and under 25 I'm assuming to make it in prime time. But selfishly I hope he stays, and if he doesn't I hope he has a great replacement. At least he would still be on for almost another year.
