Don your finest and bust out a bottle of bubbly, because “Days of our Lives” is making history this week with the first ever male-male wedding to be seen on a soap opera! The important and heartfelt marital ceremony between longtime lovers Will (Guy Wilson) and Sonny (Freddie Smith) officially begins today, Tuesday, April 1, and in celebration of the very special event, Soap Opera Network snagged a few comments from Smith and Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady)! Read on for their special sneak peek into WilSon’s big day!
It’s been one month since Guy Wilson debuted as “Days of our Lives’” Will Horton, and he has quickly ingratiated himself into the town of Salem. In fact, shortly after debuting as Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) son, he’s already found himself on the way to a fictional altar with Sonny (Freddie Smith)! As the onscreen pair prepares to eventually walk down the aisle and become a married couple, Soap Opera Network caught up with Wilson to get his take on why he landed the role, how he was able to bond with Smith so quickly and what kind of obstacles the popular and influential onscreen pairing will face as they prepare for marriage!
Former “As the World Turns” star Martha Byrne (ex-Lily Snyder; ex-Andrea Floyd, “General Hospital”) is making her debut on NBC’s drama series, “Crisis,” next month, and it looks like she’ll be doing it with a literal bang! A teaser trailer featuring the actress wearing a suicide vest has already racked up over a million YouTube views, with the number growing every day. Soap Opera Network caught up with Byrne to get the scoop on her emotional “Crisis” arc, how it might be a game changer for her career, what she thinks of soap fans and more!
Yesterday, Soap Opera Network featured a Center Stage interview with “The Young and the Restless’” Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) detailing his new film, “Tentacle 8,” which is out on DVD in select stores and on Amazon now. But as promised, we also got the star to open up about all of his “Y&R” drama, too! Read on to get the actor’s take on Sharon’s (Sharon Case) paternity lies, Victor’s (Eric Braeden) machinations, the search for Adam and the recent departure of some of the sudser’s most popular stars!
Anyone who’s been watching “The Young and the Restless” as of late knows that Nicholas Newman’s life is about to be blown to smithereens. Not only has his father been tricking the love of his life into thinking she’s been seeing and speaking with her dead daughter, he’s on the verge of finding out that the very same woman he loves has been lying to him about the true paternity of his daughter! The drama is all pretty typical for Nick’s portrayer, Joshua Morrow — who’s been dealing with twisted Genoa City plots for nearly 20 years — but the drama he faces in his latest stint in the political drama thriller ‘Tentacle 8?’ Not so much! Soap Opera Network spoke with the actor about momentarily stepping away from his ‘Y&R’ craziness to film the exciting project, which is available on DVD in stores and on Amazon today. And we also got him to spill on all of the Victor (Eric Braeden), Sharon (Sharon Case) and Adam (formerly Michael Muhney) drama, too!
Viewers may have been stunned with the reveal that “General Hospital’s” new Chief of Staff was going to be none other than villainess Dr. Liesl Obrecht, but the devilish doc’s portrayer, Kathleen Gati, was equally surprised upon hearing the unexpected news!
Being on the winning team during this year’s Super Bowl was a dream come true for Seattle Seahawk’s fullback Michael Robinson, but the true touchdown for the Virginia native was being asked to film a scene for CBS’s “The Young and the Restless” — a soap opera he recently admitted is his guilty viewing pleasure! Soap Opera Network took part in a call with the sports star where he discussed his love of the show, how the gig came about and a very interesting conversation had had with legend Eric Braeden (Victor Newman). Read on for the detailed play-by-play!
“The Young and the Restless” viewers weren’t exactly thrilled when popular actor Billy Miller announced that he would be exiting the role of Billy Abbott, but the rough waters were mostly calmed when former portrayer David Tom (brother of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom [Katie Logan]) swooped in to take back the role. It’s been a fairly smooth transition for most viewers, but jumping into the middle of such an intense storyline — the death of Delia and having been outed for cheating on Victoria (Amelia Heinle) —was a bit of an adjustment for the actor!
“General Hospital’s” Emme Rylan (Lulu Spencer) is no stranger to heartbreaking baby loss storylines. As “Guiding Light’s” Lizzie Spaulding, she had to play out the emotional arc in which Lizzie believed her daughter, Sarah, had died in a car accident. And while Rylan is proud of the work she was able to bring as her Springfield alter ego, she’s of the opinion that now having two children of her own (Jackson, 4, and Levi, 2) is making her current baby-loss storyline much stronger.
Long gone but never forgotten characters are popping up left and right on ABC’s “General Hospital,” leaving many fans wondering which fan favorite could be next. The recent reveal that Julian’s (William DeVry) henchmen, Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise), is from Puerto Rico had many under the impression that he was related to Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) late wife, Lily Rivera (Lilly Melgar), which then lead fans to wonder if Melgar could be headed back to Port Charles!
With “General Hospital’s” 13,000th episode just around the corner — on Monday, February 24, to be exact — Tyler Christopher (Nikolas Cassadine) and Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber) sat down with reporters to dish on everything from Nikolas’ limits when it comes to Britt (Kelly Thiebaud), the return of Ric (Rick Hearst) and their hesitation to delve into Nikolas and Liz’s romantic past! Read on for the details!
Watching “Days of our Lives’” Sami (Alison Sweeney), Kate (Lauren Koslow) and Gabi (Camila Banus) supposedly wash their hands clean of Nick (Blake Berris) by tossing him in a river was delicious soap opera fun. But with the formerly presumed dead character back in town and acting rather strange, it seems the fun has really just begun! Is the dark haired fellow really Nick? Or could it be a twin brother or an imposter using his face? And if it truly is Nick, just how far will he go to get back at the ladies for trying to off him? Soap Opera Network chatted with the character’s portrayer to find out!
Cupid may be fluttering around shooting love arrows left and right, but it seems he hasn’t been able to successfully connect “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Katie (Heather Tom) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) — at least, not yet! But does Katie even truly care for Ridge? Or is her attraction based out of revenge toward her sister, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), who swooped in and dated her former hubby, Bill (Don Diamont)? And what about the Logan sister’s relationship: Will they ever be as close as they once were, or have these recent matters of the heart permanently decimated their sibling bond? Read on to find out!
