EXCLUSIVE: Days of Our Lives' Freddie Smith Dishes Bullying, Scandal Crest and Sonny "Showing Some Skin" in SalemBy Jamey Giddens on September 13, 2012
Days of Our Lives hunk Freddie Smith has been making a lot of headlines lately. His character Sonny Kiriakis recently endured a gay bashing and now is posed for a star-crossed romance with Will Horton played by Chandler Massey. As if all of that isn't enough to keep Smith busy, he spends his free time speaking out about bullying and has joined the cast of ACME's upcoming improv soap Scandal Crest.
I caught up with Smith to talk Scandal Crest (He'll be playing Romeo Jones, secret lover to Ophelia Sterling played by Molly Burnett!), exercising an actor's muscles and to find out when we're going to see Sonny get some in Salem!
Daytime Confidential: You're a busy man, Mr. Smith! Your character Sonny Kiriakis is beginning a love story with Will Horton (Chandler Massey) on NBC's Days of Our Lives; you're speaking out against bullying and now you're doing ACME's new improvised soap opera Scandal Crest. You must have one of those amazing smartphones like the one Samuel L. Jackson hawks in those commercials, that cooks your meals, schedules your appointments, etc.?
Freddie Smith: Yeah, I have been very busy lately which is always good for me. Luckily, my schedule allows me to do all of these amazing things at once.
DC: What exactly is an improvised soap? I'm kinda having a hard time picturing baby switches, demon possessions and DNA test result swaps without benefit of a 70-page script!
This is the first time I have ever heard of an improv soap as well. That is one of the reasons I hopped on board so quickly. I feel there are no limitations having a improv soap, so I'm excited to be working on the project with such an amazing cast. Seeing as there is no script, who knows how crazy the storylines will become? They could be even more exciting than baby switching!
EXCLUSIVE: Exiting DAYS Starlet Molly Burnett Talks Booking Gigs For MTV, Hallmark and Starring in Improvised Soap 'Scandal Crest'By Jamey Giddens on September 12, 2012
Take heart, soap lovers already mourning the loss of Molly Burnett from the suds. The soon-to-be exiting Days of Our Lives actress has already found a new soapy gig. She'll be co-starring in ACME Comedy's upcoming improvised, online soap opera Scandal Crest.
I caught up with Burnett to get all the deets on Scandal Crest, which will reunite her with former DAYS co-stars Freddie Smith and Eric Martsolf. I also found out what else the talented young actress has been up to since leaving DAYS, including booking a guest star spot on MTV's upcoming Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous and a new Hallmark movie!
Daytime Confidential: You're on your way to becoming for webisoaps what Jamie Lee Curtis was for horror flicks — the go-to girl! First you did Empire, then Venice, now you're doing Scandal Crest for ACME. What do you like about doing these kinds of projects?
Molly Burnett: Acting is my first love. I just like to work. I am very privileged to have been given the opportunity to participate in these great projects. There is a lot of freedom with web series, and the people that are running them, along with the casts, are such a pleasure to work with.
DC: After starring on Days of Our Lives for four seasons, you're an old pro at mastering tons of dialogue and blocking, but Scandal Crest will be an improvised soap opera. How on earth will that work, and are you nervous?
MB: Improv is such a temperamental thing. It's really easy to take something too far and lose the humor. Am I nervous? Sure, but it is reassuring knowing the talent I'll be surrounded by. READ MORE
