“Days of Our Lives” legend Deidre Hall reacts to the death of her on-screen grandson Will Horton

It was back in late April that I snapped this photo of Deidre Hall and Guy Wilson on the red carpet at the Daytime Emmy Awards.

At that time, I don’t think either actor – or anyone else – dreamed that the Days of Our Lives legacy character of Will Horton would be killed off in a very sudden and shocking manner.

Hall had done some of her most touching work in recent years as Will’s grandmother Marlena who was the person Will (then played by Chandler Massey) chose to confide in during his emotional coming out process.

It was Marlena who performed the wedding ceremony of Will and husband Sonny shortly after Wilson stepped into the role and she remained one of the few people to be able to read Will and to tell him hard truths.

“It was very difficult to see the killing of Will on air,” Hall wrote on her Facebook page this week.

“We all stood paralyzed and fixed on the screen in the make up room. Guy was terrific in his portrayal. Seeing the show on air brought back the terrible sadness we all felt when the scenes were being shot. I have seen him a number of times since he left and am happy to say he is doing well.”

One Remark

  1. Actually, Guy knew about it at the time of the Emmy’s. Freddie said in an interview on Afterbuzz last Sunday that Guy found out in late March. It’s a tribute to his professionalism that he kept the secret for so long and continued to promote the show.
