This week Days Of Our Lives buried Will Horton, one of Daytime’s 25 Greatest Gay Characters, a shortsighted, narrow-minded decision that will hopefully come back to haunt them.
Played by Chandler Massey (who won three consecutive Emmy for the role) and then Guy Wilson, we watched Will come out on screen, fall in love with soulmate Sonny Kiriakis, have a child, get married, have an affair (or a few), and be murdered by a necktie wielding killer.
Here are some of the highlights from Will’s turbulent life, which was snuffed out far too soon. And stupidly.
A Brief retrospective in 30 gifs.
Rest In Peace.
