I’ve been so lucky to get to work with @therealcmassey over the years @nbcdays . Chandler, you’re smart, funny, charming and supportive. You bring all that empathy and energy to every scene and I just can’t begin to tell you how much it’s meant to me. Every scene – especially the hard, emotional ones (aren’t they all 😭or 🤬or 🤯? 😂😂) you were ready to commit to each moment and help make our work the best it can be. I am so lucky and grateful you took on the role of Will.
Massey also appeared on co-star Freddie Smith’s (Sonny Kiriakis) online talk show with his wife, Alyssa, to mark Will and Sonny’s Days departure.
