Freddie Smith returns to NBC’s Days Of Our Lives this week, reprising his role as gay character Sonny Kiriakis, which earned him an Emmy and countless fans.
Smith last appeared on Days back in October, when Sonny left town after the murder of his husband, Will. He’ll be reintroduced in tomorrow’s episode, and will be reunited with his first love, former baseball player Paul Narita (Christopher Sean), on Thursday.
Will the now-widowed Sonny rekindle that romance? (Smith is back under contract with the show, so this isn’t a one-time appearance.)
In a Facebook Live Q&A yesterday, Smith teased that “first love never really goes away.”
Days Of Our Lives airs weekdays at 1pm on NBC.
