I'm not a fan of Will Gerse, but still...that seems a little cold. He's been around a long time and is just a kid; they could have at least given him a cake! And why did they bother to bring him back? He could have called and told them over the phone he wanted to stay with Carrie and Austin. It's not like they wanted to have a big bonding scene with his new brother and sister because so far he hasn't even visited Sami and the twins.
Sorry but I have a hard time feeling bad for a mediocre 16-year-old actor just getting quickly written out (with the possibility of him coming back later on if needed for the story) when we have seen a lot more talented characters/interesting characters killed recently so that the actors who depend on these roles for their livelihoods (I doubt Chris depends on his money for DOOL to pay for food and a home or he has any kids to support) can never come back. Not just Drake/John, but also Steve/Bart, James/Benjy, etc...
I mean compared to what DOOL did to Drake and is doing to Renee this isn't so bad.
I agree about Chris Gerse. He's a great kid and will have other work. And although I think Bryan has every right to say something nice about Chris as a person. I don't like Bryan equating the situation about sending Will to Switzerland and his sending his own son on a flight alone. It looks like Bryan is trying to garner sympathy again. I would like to hear from Ali, and other cast members about Chris leaving. I guess Datillo has made himself the 'go to' guy for any Days news in the magazines. Frankly, I'm sick of Dattilo.
