Days of Our Lives big casting secret is out. The show has cast Guy Wilson as the new Will Horton, replacing Chandler Massey, who taped his final scenes on August 23.
Jen Lilley (Theresa) revealed the news during an appearance on blog talk radio series Lather Up with Littany on Wednesday night, while discussing the challenges that come with replacing a popular soap actor.
"I am very worried for Guy Wilson, who is replacing Chandler, because I love Chandler..." said Lilley. "It's really hard to be a recast, and I completely understand from the audience's point of view why it's hard also. I mean, that's tricky; somebody coming in and replacing a character. It's hard.
"I always give the analogy of Dexter. That's my favorite show," added Lilley. "If anyone but Michael C. Hall was Dexter, I would freak the freak out; even if it was like Matt Damon, who I have a total crush on... I hope people will be nice to Guy Wilson, because there's a scary thing built into being a recast; because of the audience and because of the awesome fan base."
Fortunately, Wilson has an impressive background. He's had guest stints on the nighttime series Breaking Bad, Hawaii Five-0 and Bones. Plus, he has some daytime experience. Back in 2006, he appeared on General Hospital as a teenage Luke Spencer.
