Alison Sweeney was “betrayed and hurt” over decision to kill off her “Days of Our Lives” son Will Horton
Alison Sweeney stepped back into her Days of Our Lives role of Sami Brady this week.
But it’s not something the actress is happy about and she makes no effort to hide her displeasure.
Sami has arrived in Salem on the same day it’s discovered that her first born son, Will Horton, is the latest victim of the Necktie Killer.
“Completely honestly, I was angry,” Sweeney tells Soap Opera Digest. “I felt betrayed and hurt they were doing it. I had a crazy reaction that I didn’t want to do it and I didn’t want to go be part of it because I was upset. And then I felt like I went through the five stages of grief.”
Sweeney thinks killing Will, a legacy character, is “a big mistake.”
“I am sorry they did it but, of course, I had to go there and mourn,” said Sweeney. “I think there are other ways they could have handled it. It breaks my heart that there is no Will anymore. There have been a lot of storylines that I haven’t agreed with, but I always understood the motive behind them and the value of getting the audience riled up. But this particular story point is something that I just don’t agree with and I didn’t from the moment they told me. And I don’t understand why they did it.”
