When Chandler Massey met Kristy McNichol – a Greg In Hollywood exclusive!

Don’t you just love this photo?

It was taken earlier today when Days of Our Lives star Chandler Massey met Kristy McNichol.

They happen to have the same publicist, Jeff Ballard, and he made the introduction.

“She is a wonderful actress and is so warm and down to earth,” Chandler said after meeting McNichol for the first time.

Kristy’s view of Chandler: “What a cutie!  He is so adorable and talented.”

As you know, Kristy earlier this month publicly acknowledged that she is a lesbian and did so because she wants to help LGBT kids who are bullied.

Although Kristy has not acted for more than two decades, the Emmy winner is still well-remembered for her television roles on Family and Empty Nest and such feature films as Little Darlings, Only When I Laugh and The Pirate Movie.

Chandler, meanwhile, is doing an outstanding job as gay teen Will Horton on Days of Our Lives. He’s been so good that the current issue of Soap Opera Digest, which just arrived in my mailbox today, names him as “Performer of the Week.”

“The young actor has had to delicately balance his alter-ego’s fragility, profound hurt and confusion, not to mention his intense anger at [his mother],” the magazine notes. “The material marks the first time Massey has really been pushed to show off all his skills and he has fully embraced the challenge.”

4 Remarks

  1. Actually, she has acted in the last two decades. Her last acting gig was in a TV show called “Invasion America” which was in 1998.

  2. Awesome photo! Thanks for sharing it! I think it’s awesome that she has come out and that she is happy and healthy! It’s fun seeing these two together. I enjoyed watching Kristy while I was growing up, and Chandler is a doll and is doing an amazing job on Days! I’m so grateful for his commitment to the role and his support of the gay community!

  3. 17 of my family will quit watching Days when Will’s character comes out of the closet. FYI

  4. I love it,love kristy and Chandler!!!!@Lyn stop the hate and homophobs!!!Love everyone equally,God and Jesus loves us all equally and same period!So stop with your pathetic hate,your only making an ass of yourself.
