|Freddie Smith Puts Mark On Character|
As an openly gay character, Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) of Days of our Lives loves the challenge of "capturing the character."
"I do! It's exciting to be able to play this role. This is a big hot topic (being gay) in today's society," Smith said. "By portraying this character, I feel like I am making an impact on society, and be able to shed light on something that many people have a fear of."
This week Smith along with Chandler Massey (Will) have shared their first on air kiss. "This role gives me the opportunity to share the variety of experiences of what it is like to be gay," Smith said. "It's like do I come out? Do I stay in? This is about showing two sides."
