Although DAYS OF OUR LIVES hasn’t confirmed the casting yet, Jen Lilley (Teresa; ex-Maxie, GENERAL HOSPITAL) spilled the beans on the Blog Talk Radio series Lather Up With Littany that Guy Wilson will be taking over the role of Will from the already-departed Chandler Massey. Wilson has made appearances on various primetime series, but DAYS won’t be his first stab at daytime. Back in 2006, he actually played a teenaged Luke in some GH flashbacks!
Having temporarily stepped in for** Kirsten Storms** as GH’s Maxie, Lilley knows firsthand what it’s like to don the shoes of a popular actor. “I hope people will be nice to Guy Wilson,” she said on the show, “because there is a scary thing built into being a recast because of the audience, and the awesome fan base. You guys are so loyal!”
Wilson has been keeping quiet on social media himself, but DAYS is likely to make an official announcement shortly. Of course, because the soap shoots so far ahead, Massey will be seen as Will until the end of the year, meaning Wilson won’t make his debut until 2014.
