My chat with actor Christopher Sean who plays Paul Narita on NBC’s “Days of Our Lives”
Christopher Sean is a terrific actor that he has managed to come between a beloved couple on Days of Our Lives and still come off as a good guy.
His character of Paul Narita turned the lives of Sonny Kiriakis and Will Horton upside down when he slept with Will who he later finds out is married to Paul’s ex.
‘It’s been such positive feedback from the fans, I’m just surprised myself,’ Christopher told me in a recent interview.
‘I’m just trying to do the best I can in portraying a heartfelt man who wants to get back his love. The writing is just incredible what they are putting out. It’s just making my job easy and I go out and I do the best I possibly can and make sure it’s as authentic and genuine as possible.’
The Days role goes beyond the Will-Sonny-Paul triangle. With Paul being a pro baseball player and of Japanese ancestory, his character has dealt with the end of his athletic career, with the reaction of his family to his being gay and his taking the step of coming out publicly.
‘It’s an honor, it’s a privilege and it’s a dream come true,’ he says of his role. ‘I’ve always wanted to act and to have a job that allows me to be someone to help people, to give back to the community, that’s what I’m looking for – that’s what I always want to do – to make people feel better and to make them understand in life, if they are going through struggles, this is an opportunity to really help those people and I love that.’
