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."
What a classy kid. To find out exacly how DAYS pulled a fast one on Massey, click here!
