Freddie Smith reflects on seven years of playing openly gay Sonny Kiriakis on ‘Days of Our Lives’

Seven years ago today on June 23rd, 2011, Sonny Kiriakis appeared on screen for the very first time!! I can’t believe it’s been seven years already. I remember my first day like it was yesterday. With Sonny being the first openly gay contract player on Days of Our Lives, we all had a huge responsibility to tell an honest and truthful story about an out and proud gay man. I am so honored to say that not only did we tell a true love story, but did in such a way that Sonny Kiriakis has become one of the most liked and rooted for characters on the show! I want to thank Sony and NBC, the executive producers, writers, directors, cast and crew for telling a brave love story at a time when courage was needed to shed light on equal rights. I’m so happy that our story has impacted so many peoples lives in a positive way. From the bottom of my heart, thank you! #anniversary #nbcdays
