Yes, thank you for clarifying that point and for showing us a picture of Chandler Massey.

 

He is most associated with playing the role of Will Horton.

 

Guy Wilson was his replacement.

 

How much is it costing "Days Of Our Lives" to bring back Chandler Massey in the role?

 

Inquiring minds would like to know.

 

 

Good question. They announced Alison Sweeney was returning as Sami a few weeks ago, but I think her visit is short-term. Probably to facilitate the new story with Will's coming back from the dead. I would assume Ali and Chandler do not come cheap. Chandler earned several Emmys.

Ray, just people are not confused, that is a picture with Guy Wilson in the role. Chandler Massey (below) is the one most people associate with the character of Will Horton on Days of Our Lives. It's too bad Chandler left a few weeks before Will & Sonny were married. Chandler had built the whole storyline then didn't get to do the wedding.

The gay young man, Will Horton, who was a major character on the daytime soap, "Days Of Our Lives", is returning to the show.

 

The memorable character made TV history when he married his love, Sonny Kiriakis, in a ceremony that covered four whole days of programming.

 

At that time, he was played by actor Guy Wilson.

 

The actor, who originated the role, Chandler Massey, had left the series amid a great deal of controversy.

 

When new writers came aboard, they killed Will Horton off - he became a victim of the Necktie Killer.

 

This decision caused a great deal of blacklash.

 

But, now, Chandler Massey is returning in the iconic role.

 

He started to film his scenes in April.

 

His first appearances will be in September.

 

How the show will bring Will Horton back from the dead will be very, very interesting.

 

BUT WILL HORTON HAD TO RETURN!

It was significant that his Symphony No. 6 "Pathetique" was used in the movie Maurice. Here's a link which discusses the connection between the "Pathetique" and Tchaikovky's homosexuality and suicide. It also mentions the use of the piece in Maurice.

 

https://en.wikipedia...6_(Tchaikovsky)

That Tchaikovsky died at such a young age is almost unthinkable.

 

He was an immense talent.

 

He is the one composer that I never tire of listening to.

 

And, of course, I can watch "Swan Lake" on DVD endlessly.

A biopic was made - "The Music Lovers" - directed by Ken Russell - starring Richard Chamberlain.

A movie should be made about his life starring Richard Dreyfuss.

The magnificent Russian composer -

 

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky -

 

would have been 177 years old today.

 

 

He was born on May 7, 1840.

 

He died on Nov. 6, 1893.

"Falsettos", the lauded musical by William Finn, which received a recent Broadway revival for a limited run, received FIVE TONY NOMINATIONS yesterday.

 

And the surest winner of those nominees is Stephanie J. Block.

Now it seems as if Aaron Hernandez might have a secret gay lover which brings another layer to this tragic story which I'm sure will be a movie or at least a CSI Special Victims Unit episode in the future
