Guy Wilson Reflects On Shooting 'Days Of Our Lives' Gay Wedding
Guy Wilson, portrayer of Days of Our Lives' Will Horton, reflected on the show's groundbreaking same-sex wedding. See what he had to say on filming the episode and what it meant to him and the rest of the Days cast.
From Gay Star News:
"When we filmed that episode and the days leading up to that, with each day it became increasingly powerful for us," Wilson told Gay Star News at the recent GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles where the show was named outstanding daytime drama.
"The actual day of filming it, there was no acting. We didn't have to act," he said. "It was simultaneously one of the most powerful moments I've had as a performer or otherwise and also one of the most fluid moments I've had as an actor."
"There was a level of joy (on the set) that was very powerful and it was fun because everyone was there - almost the entire cast was there and present and we were all very, very aware of what this meant - not just within the context of the show and the storyline but on a greater level," Wilson said.
"We were trying to demonstrate for our viewership the fact that it's okay to be fearless, to express who you are and what you believe in and it's okay to love whoever you want to love. I view the Will and Sonny storyline as an example of true love, pure love."
