Is there a secret to getting the video to play?


Well the secret was to try another browser. :)

Its really nothing that we haven't seen or heard. Will is going to get backlash from Sami for writing the article about their family. I wish they would come up with something more interesting for this couple.

"Trouble is coming for our favorite gay couple in Salem.

It’s only been a few months since Will Horton (Guy Wilson) and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) walked down the aisle but their relationship is about to hit its first big road bump. And is there any “Days of Our Lives” viewer who will be surprised to find that Will’s meddlesome mother Sami (Alison Sweeney) is involved?

I was on the set of “Days” last week and Smith gave me the lowdown on how Will’s journalistic ambition could spell trouble for everyone, including the young newlyweds. Also, the actor talked about working with co-star Guy Wilson and what Wilson likes to leave in Smith’s dressing room to get under his skin. Sounds like a married couple to me!"

Freddie: "You know, Sonny really wanted to help his husband, so he kinda puts in a good word to get him this dream job. And you know, he went behind his back, but it was only cause it was to help him. And now, the article that he's writing is kind of trashing family a little bit, but it is...you know, it's the hard truth. So Sonny is just really concerned about the backlash that's gonna happen from Sami. When Sami hears somethin, she doesn't just go "Oh, okay" she makes a thing of it. So Will and Sonny, they're just trying to protect their family. And Sonny just wants to make sure everything stays on an even keel."

Someone asks a question - they cut it out, but his response is:

"I think it's like relationships in general. It's like you're trying to balance work, and your personal life at the same time, then you bring family into it. It's...you know, things get crazy. So I'm glad this is actually make-believe and not real life, cause this would be a lot of drama.

Questioner person we don't see: So now that Will and Sonny have been married for a while, it's nice that it's not really even addressed anymore on the show like...such a plot point, such an issue.

Freddie "Yeah"

Questioner dude: They're just another couple on the show.

Freddie: "Yeah. Well I mean, that kinda has been happening every day. Like, for the past three and a half years, I've seen it go from like "Hey Freddie! What's it like playing the first gay character, to now it's like Sonny and Will are fighting, and it's...it's how it should be. You know, I think that the writers and the show and everybody just put together a very tasteful and amazing story. And uh...we're just like everyone else. How it should be, so I'm pumped about it."

Questioner dude asks another question we don't get to hear, but surmising from his answer, it's about the recast from Chandler to Guy.

Freddie: "Yeah, it's been almost a year. Time flies, time flies. No, we get along very well, um, he always comes in my dressing room, and it's just kinda the thing. So he just like hangs out in there, takes naps, and he always leaves his garbage in his room and it drives me up a wall, so it's kinda like we have this real...marriage happening. The kind of little things that we nit-pick on each other, so it's cool."

Another off-mic question.

Freddie: "I think half the time it's on purpose, yeah, cause I'll just walk in and there's stuff there for no reason. Just like an empty container, or a cup of coffee that's just cold and I'm just like 'Come on, throw it out', but he does it on purpose.

Still another question we don't get to hear.

Freddie: "Angry Sonny seems to be a fan favorite. I always see pictures of like...one of these like grilling faces that I give somebody. There's always captions of like 'Don't piss off Sonny!' And uh, so it's just kind of funny that...But no, I mean, the fans are great it's nice to feel all the love."

Questioner dude: Well I think that Sonny is usually is very even keeled, its nice when he does get to...something mumbled.

Freddie: "Yeah"

Questioner dude: And theres a lot to explore about on the show.

Freddie: "Yeah. Oh yeah, oh yeah. And it's fun as an actor to just unload and to be able to yell without any repercussions. I mean, they yell 'Cut!' and it's all like...you know what I mean, so it's nice to be able to play angry every now and then."

Questioner dude: I'll put you on the spot, can you make an angry face? mumble mumble

Freddie: "An angry face? I can get really, really angry if you'd like me to." His facial expression starts to harden. "I'm dead serious." He looks serious at the questioner dude.. "See that's called 'Acting'".

:P I just love them. I wish they would get a storyline that doesn't involve Sami, but I guess that's bound to happen since she'll soon be leaving. I still suspect the triangle with Ben.
