Things heat up between Will and Gabi this week on Days of Our Lives, when the sweet teen duo finally make love after months of dating. The big moment, which airs on Tuesday, August 9, marks Chandler Massey's (Will) first time taping a love scene. So was he nervous about pulling it off?
"No. Camila (Banus, Gabi) and I both play young characters on the show, so I figured they weren't going to do anything really explicit," says Massey, noting the scenes were rather G-rated. "It definitely was more tasteful."
What really kept Massey relaxed is the bond he shares with Banus.
"Camila and are close, just from working together all these months," says Massey. "We're pretty comfortable with each other by now. So it wasn't awkward or anything."
While the Will/Gabi coupling is heating up, rumors that Will is headed for a more controversial relationship, a gay romance with Freddie Smith's Sonny, may turn out to be unfounded. Sources are saying the story idea is up in the air and may not happen. The two characters, who are becoming friends, could turn out to be just that as Will continues to stand up for the new teen in town.
"I'm very pleased that they wrote Will that way... as very accepting and open-minded," says Massey. "One of Will's really close friends is not completely comfortable with [Sonny]. He's kind of homophobic, so Will kind of has to stick his neck out there, because he knows what's right and what's not right."
Viewers will have to stay tuned to see what happens next.
