: Hi there WilSon Blvd
It's been a while since I've been on here and was hoping to eventually return but not like this
This is copied from my WilSon livejournal account
Ok, I'm gonna say, I'm very upset here.
I knew Chandler was gonna be leaving the role of Will pretty much from what he said at the Daytime Emmys. However my head was gearing up for it to be in December and yet we have now been left stunned by the quickest of it and barely any time after Casey has gone.
Yeah I am annoyed because I was looking forward to Days coming up with an amazing exit story for Chandler's Will Horton even if I believe they would eventually re-cast the role.
But this?! No I'm sorry but I hate how it has been handled. And it has made me definitely not even going watch the new Will Horton with Freddie's Sonny Kiriakis.
And will we get to hear Freddie comment about Chandler's departure??
This has seriously left a bad taste in my mouth and I'm wondering if it has anything to do with Chandler moaning about his Day's workload.
I wish Chandler nothing but the best, it just I was NOT ready for this now. I was gonna be (more) ready for this in December.
Makes me wonder if Chandler will be a no show at the Daytime Emmy awards next year like Casey was this year.
Well I wish nothing but the best for Freddie in is role as Sonny. I hope it works out for him regardless of whether the new Will Horton works out on Days or not. He deserves to stay based on what he has done with the character of Sonny over this last year.
Hope you all are well and sad that some have left this site permanently.
Just gutted now and it's take the joy off for me of looking forward to watching WilSon on Days. Yes I will continue to do so until CM leaves but I'm not a happy bunny at all.
Bye and have a good weekend everyone.
Great to hear from you. It has been awhile. I am sad about Chandler's announcement. I was not prepared for that at all. Not until December anyway. I will support his decision and wish him the best. At least we get to see him for a few months as Will through December. Then we will have to get used to a new face. *sobbing*
Hi WilSon Blvd
Have to say I'm really upset about how this has all come about.
I'm still reeling from the death of Cory (although not in the horrific way that his family, friends and Lea are having to go through). And then while it is nothing compare to the real person that was Cory, there is the first two episodes of Glee to go through before we get to the third episode (which will be my last one) were they deal with the death of my fav male Glee character, Finn and they end of Finchel. This coupled with me losing Matthew Crawley from Downton Abbey (another series I won't be watching any more) and than finally to be blindsighted by Days and lost Chandler as Will before I've ever prepared myself properly, I'll admit to feeling rididculous but it has got me down in the dumps.
I wish nothing but the best for Chandler and hope he is trully happy with leaving the role of Will Horton right now but I feel cheated by Days because they never gave WilSon the exposure that it should have done. Where are the many photos of Chandler and Freddie in magazines talking together about the impact of WilSon. Where are the joint interviews (mags/tv/radio) asking them about how they feel about the popularity of WilSon. Even now Chandler is at his last Days con and it would have been great to have Freddie there with him but they never do these kinds of things together or at the same time and when they have been there together, they are paired off with another person. I think about my former OTP (McDean) and how not only did they do quite a few photo jobs together but there was a few interviews and back stage clips as well with them in each others one. I feel like Days didn't really showcase WilSon as strongly as they should have because despite the lack of this they still got popular pretty quickly.
And now it's all about getting my head around the fact that Chandler is already gone and instead of hoping that if they were gonna recast that they would break Will and Sonny up somehow so we could have the original WilSon have a proper goodbye. Instead we likely to get a scene where CM'S Will walks into his bedroom to get his baby girl and then out walks nuWill with Arianna in his arms.
I am not gonna bother to even try to get into nuWilSon with nuWill because I been through enough recasts of characters I like/love to know they just don't work for me (although it doesn't happen as much on british tv/soaps than it does on america ones). But for Freddie's sake alone I hope it works out for him as I adore him as a actor and feel he has come into his own in this last year.
I am please that Days care enough to want to continue the WilSon relationship and with nuWill all it will take for the actor is to kiss FS opened mouth and he have won a few around (mainly Brison fans) because haven't we all heard constantly about Will not kissing as passionately as Brian
So when Chandler goes, I'll be taking my leave from WilSon and Days but I'll be popping on here as well as other various sites to read others views and opinions on WilSon mark 2. And am curious to see who they have replaced
Chandler with. I've read a few names already and have googled them and sorry not a patch on CM although one guy was gorgeous but looked nothing like CM. Although with the new guy they may make Will a bit edgier as some have (on different sites) said could happen but that would annoy the hell out of me as Chandler proved he could do that when he was kicking off with EJ in his attempts to try and blackmail him!
Well that me and my LONG rant over with. Feeling slightly better getting it all out.
So to you all, enjoy your day. Ciao
