Last week's blog post announcing that the long rumored Will/Sonny coupling on Days of Our Lives might not be happening is gaining momentum. Actor Freddie Smith, who portrays Sonny, added fuel to the fire when he weighed in on the subject.
Like fans, Smith heard the early rumblings about Will and Sonny's big secret storyline, when he joined the show. "At first I was like, 'Alright. Cool,'" says the actor, who was eager for the story to unfold.
But after four months on the show and no romantic sparks between Will and Sonny, Smith started to wonder.
"Now I'm hearing [Sonny's love interest] might be a new character," says Smith. "I'm very anxious just like everybody else to see who it's going to be and how it's going to play out."
Smith knows Days fans will be behind him no matter what happens. "I've had so many great tweets from people," shares Smith. "They're being so supportive and saying they relate to Sonny, thank you, and that I'm doing an amazing job. It feels great."
Wouldn't it be interesting if Days chose to go the Glee route with Sonny? Remember poor Kurt being taunted and tormented by football jock, Karofsky, only to have the big lug pull him into a kiss one day, revealing that he was actually gay, too? If that's the case, T, who's expressed nothing but prejudice and contempt for Sonny, would make him the perfect choice to fall for him.
