“Days of Our Lives” finally makes it official: Chandler Massey’s Will Horton character is gay’ve seen Will Horton avoid being intimate with his beautiful girlfriend Gabby in NBC’s Days of Our Lives for months now.

Gabby is trying to convince herself that Will just has too much going on in his life to want to have sex with her again – they consummated their relationship but it seems clear Will has no interest in doing that again.

Anyway, for those of you who have been patiently waiting for the gay storyline to unfold last summer’s arrival of Sonny (Freddie Smith), it’s finally being officially confirmed that Will (played by Emmy nominee Chandler Massey) is also gay.

Massey said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly: “I’m thrilled to be able to portray my character in an empowering way that will show his struggle to accept who he is. It is my hope that this storyline will inspire others to be true to themselves as well.”

Co-Executive Producer Greg Meng said: “We are excited to have the encouragement and support from both NBC and Sony to tell the inspiring story of a young man learning who he is as he defines and creates his relationships with others.”

While it initially seemed like the characters of Will and Sonny would hook up, that may not happen.

We will have to wait and see!

I’m glad that the role of Will is in the hands of a thoughtful young man like Chandler Massey. When I interviewed the actor last June about the possibility of Will being gay (it had been rumored that long ago), he had no qualms about the character going in that direction: “It’d be fun. It obviously would be very challenging on a creative level.”

    I think it’s awesome that there will be another gay character on DOL. What better person than one of Doc’s grandchildren! I believe that every television program should have a gay or lesbian character in order to truly represent the worlds population!

    I’d also like to see more people in the entertainment field feel more comfortable about their sexuality and not be afraid that they’ll lose their livelihood if they “came out.” Same thing for professional athletes and any other profession. We should all be able to live as our true selves without fear of retaliation!!!!

  3. This is only reason I’m watching Days right now (and also for sexy Drake Hogestyn and Peter Reckell and Patrick Muldoon).
