Matthew Ashford Interview

September 20, 2011 10:58 AM

We caught up with Matthew Ashford about the exciting return of his character, Jack Deveraux, to Days of our Lives. Read the full interview below!


Days Insider: What did you miss most about being on DAYS?


Matthew Ashford: The families.


Days Insider: How (if at all) do you feel your character has changed since we last saw him?


Matthew Ashford: He's had experiences that have really caused him to re-examine his life.


Days Insider: Whom are you most excited about working with again?


Matthew Ashford: Billy Jack Johnson Harcourt Deveraux!


Days Insider: What is your favorite storyline from the past?


Matthew Ashford: Working side by side with Jennifer in the early days of the Spectator newspaper.


Days Insider: How do we see Jack's return affecting the relationship between Jen and Dan?


Matthew Ashford: Dan who?


Days Insider: Do you think Jack deserves to be forgiven by Jennifer?


Matthew Ashford: You mean because he wasn't there when she had her heart removed and replaced? Yes, his bad. But she has a big heart... now that it's back in place. I'm hoping she'll have room for him in it.


Days Insider: How is Jack's relationship with his daughter, Abigail, who is now a young woman?


Matthew Ashford: Well, it could use a little repair/tune-up.

I hope that can be taken further to mean that he is glad to finally being able to play ClassicJack, unlike the post-1991 and 2001- .

Someone on DR's FB site said they are okay with Jennifer forgiving Jack but want to keep Dannifer together!

If Jack was being held hostage, then it's Jennifer who should be asking for forgiveness.

I'd love to see Jack write an investigative article about Daniel's creepy history of dating his patients (the dead wife, Chelsea, Kate, Chloe, Jennifer, and I'm sure there were others we don't even know about!). Then Daniel might lose his medical license, and Jack might win a Pulitzer. Justice!

These people must be bribed/blackmailed by TPTB or Shawn Christian...there is just no other explanation for their deplorable taste!

Honestly, she needs to be the one begging for forgiveness for her whoring ways; not Jack

Fine by me keeping Jennifer with dr. Orange. Free Jack. She can forgive him all she wants, but I don't want to see Jack wasted on her whining ass anymore.

FREE JACK!

Matt Ashford is just the bees knees, isn't he? I come home from a long day at work, and I'm dragging, and then I read "Billy Jack Johnson Harcourt Deveraux" and "Dan who?" and I'm like a giddy teenager again.

FREE JACK!
I want her to beg for forgiveness...but I want J&J together in the end...Jennifer is legacy character who is being destroyed while being paired with Dr. OrangeLove...plus J&J history is too hard to ignore to have them never be together again.

J&J are my all-time fave pairing...I really hope they end up together in the long run.

Thanks for posting! The more I hear from Matt Ashford the more I love him. "Dan who" was all kinds of awesome. :cart:

He is so, so clever. Maybe part of why he's so well suited to play a character like Jack. This interview was straight awesome.

I do want Jennifer to beg forgiveness, but it's got to be Jack and Jennifer in the end. Their story is just too lovely to be lost to something as lame as "Dannifer."

P.S. What is the DR Facebook page, and does this person have any sort of sway or is it just some person with really bad taste expressing his/her ridiculous opinion?
