Sonny may have caught a flight out of Salem, but that doesn't mean his portrayer Freddie Smith won't return to Days of Our Lives.
In an interview with the Huffington Post about his new project Hiker, Smith revealed Corday & Co. have left the door open for him to return and he expects to do just that some day.
What was the protocol when you decided to leave Days of Our Lives?
I signed on to Days of Our Lives for four years. I knew my contract was coming to an end and the big decision had to be made. I felt the love story was told beautifully and as an actor, I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone and pursue other avenues. When I sat down with Corday and the other producers to tell them I had decided to leave, they were so supportive and thanked me for my hard work. They even said the door was always open, which is the best compliment I could have received.
Is there a chance you may re-join DOOL in the future?
I absolutely believe there will be a time when I appear on DOOL again.
Hiker has more than a few ties to Days of Our Lives. Spencer Neville (Derrick) and former DAYS actress Molly Burnett (ex-Melanie) also star in the film.
