"The 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" will be telecast live exclusively on Pop on Sunday, April 26. Today, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) and Pop announced the first round of presenters which includes cast members from "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital," "The Young and the Restless," along with personalities Nancy O'Dell, Regis Philbin, Steve Harvey, Marie Osmond, Craig Ferguson, Shemar Moore and Alex Trebek.
After playing Damon, a henchman who shot Clyde (James Read) in January and left the mobster for dead in Salem Park, a now short-haired Paul Telfer returned to "Days of our Lives" in the newly created role of Xander Cook in late March, one of the town's newest big bads who also happens to share a past with Serena Mason (Melissa Archer). But could the character actually turn out to be the long missed son of Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth) and Anjelica Curtis? If today's episode is anything to go by, it's a definite possibility.
As it gears up to broadcast its first major awards telecast with the "42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" on Sunday, April 26, Pop has released the Daytime Emmy Nominee Reels for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series. Competing this year for the coveted trophy is Freddie Smith as Sonny Kiriakis on "Days of our Lives," Bryan Craig as Morgan Corinthos and Tequan Richmond as TJ Ashford, respectively, on "General Hospital," and Max Ehrich as Fenmore Baldwin on "The Young and the Restless." Only Craig and Ehrich are repeat nominees this year.
Following behind the scenes changes in February with new head writers and the re-shuffling of producers in March, NBC's "Days of our Lives" will soon gear up production for its 50th anniversary celebration without several of its leading younger talents. Molly Burnett (Melanie Jonas), Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) and Melissa Archer (Serena Mason) are all reportedly said to be departing the daytime drama series in the weeks and months ahead, at least onscreen.
After pleading guilty to vehicular assault (a fourth-degree felony) and operating a vehicle while intoxicated (a first-degree misdemeanor) in December, following an October 2014 car accident that left himself and girlfriend, Alyssa Tabit, injured, "Days of our Lives" star Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) appeared in an Ohio court earlier today as a judge handed down their ruling. Smith was sentenced to three days in jail, given two years probation and received a one year license suspension.
Nearly two months since leaving Salem for Hollywood, Will Horton (Guy Wilson) is back beginning Thursday, December 11, but will a major secret keep him from reconnecting with his husband, Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith)?
The moment "Days of our Lives" fans have been waiting for is finally happening: Molly Burnett is returning as Melanie Jonas today, November 21! But what exactly brings Melanie back to the canvas? And how long does Burnett plan on sticking around in Salem? Soap Opera Network spoke with the actress to find out!
When "Days of our Lives'" Will Horton left Salem last month to join his mom and younger siblings on a Los Angeles adventure, fans of Will and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) were left wondering what that would mean for daytime's only married gay couple and their future together, considering it was stated that Will would be gone for upwards of six months. Turns out six months is just several weeks in the world of soap operas as Will's portrayer, Guy Wilson, tells Soap Opera Network that he'll be back on air sooner than you think. "It was written as six months, but it's not going to be six months," he shares, while noting, "something will happen that will force Will to return early." Whether that something has to do with the trouble heading Sonny's way, or the mystery Will finds himself looking to solve right alongside his father, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), the actor is definitely looking forward to seeing what's ahead on "DAYS" play out on air.
The test results are in and the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OHP) has officially found that "Days of our Lives" actor Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) was legally drunk during last month's near fatal car accident that resulted in girlfriend, actress Alyssa Tabit, to be flown by medical helicopter to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Youngstown to undergo treatment. Smith received minor injuries and was taken to University Hospitals Conneaut Medical Center. Per the newly released report, Smith’s blood alcohol test result was .093. The legal limit in Ohio is .08.
"Days of our Lives" star Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) and girlfriend Alyssa Tabit are speaking out for the first time since the two were involved in a near fatal car accident in Kingsville Township, Ohio nearly three weeks ago. In a posting on Facebook earlier today, Smith said, "Feeling so lucky and blessed today to be lounging with Alyssa Tabit taking in the autumn day in Ohio. I can't thank you all enough for your on going support, thoughts, and prayers!!!! I really do have the best friends and family in the world!!!!"
With Alison Sweeney leaving the "Days of our Lives" canvas after more than 21 years portraying Sami Brady on Thursday, October 30, it's only fitting that she take one major aspect of her character's life with her, even if it's only temporary. Look for Guy Wilson, who portrays Sami's son Will Horton, to take a storyline dictated temporary leave of absence from the series when Sami heads to Los Angeles following entertainment executives taking an interest in her life as a result of Will's recent profile story in TruVista Magazine.
“Days of our Lives” star Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) was taken to the hospital earlier this morning after the star reportedly lost control of his car in Kingsville Township, Ohio. His passenger, Alyssa Tabit of North Hollywood, was seriously injured in the crash and is in critical condition, says Ohio State Highway Patrol.
As previously reported, cast members of NBC's "Days of our Lives" will once again take part in a special "Day of DAYS" fan event scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 8 at Universal CityWalk in Hollywood. This year the celebration takes place on the actual 49th anniversary of the daytime drama series, making it all the more special for fans looking to see their favorite Salemites in person. As always, the event is free and will begin at 10:00 AM with a “Day of DAYS” welcome party with cast introductions, followed by autograph signings, a cast Q&A session, photo booth fun for fans and much more.  The day will culminate with a preview of an upcoming episode of the drama series immediately following the cast Q&A.
