Chandler Massey (ex Will, Days of our Lives) (c) Kathy HutchinsAs Soapdom reported late last Friday evening, Days of our Lives Chandler Massey has left the soap opera.  A statement he made after winning his second Daytime Emmy Award eariler this year, expressed his desire to go back to school and earn his college degree.  He mentioned that his contract was expiring in December and that might be a good time for him to continue with his education.

Naturally, this caused quite a stir among his fans.  But just a few weeks ago, in an exclusive interveiw with Soapdom, Massey said that nothing was etched in stone, and that he was still weighing all his options.

We were therefore quite surprised, as was he, it turns out, that he announced on Friday via his twitter account, that he had been let out of his contract early to pursue other endeavors.

We just received the official statement from Days of our Lives as follows:

“As Chandler Massey announced back in June, he will be leaving the show to further pursue his education and other entertainment opportunities. While Days of our Lives is disappointed to lose such a talent, the show understands and supports him in his future endeavors. Due to current storyline and the timely discovery of new talent that the show feels is the right recast for Will Horton, a mutual decision has been made for the changes to taken place immediately. Chandler will always be a part of the Days family and we wish him nothing but continued success.”

Soapdom likewise wishes Massey nothing but the best. We believe that he has accomplished a great deal on Days of our Lives, winning two Daytime Emmy Awards for his portrayal of Will, and that he is not only a fine actor, but an amazing young man.  Whether he does choose to return to college full time, or continue to pursue an acting career, we wish him nothing but the best and will be sure to keep his fans up to date on all his latest endeavors.  We have no doubt that he will excel in whatever he chooses to do.

Far as "current storyline and timely discovery of new talent that the show feels is the right recast for Will Horton," we are as in the dark as you.  We can only believe that Days is taking the character in a new direction and that is why they have chosen to recast, which is something that does happen all the time in soapdom.

Massey taped his last episode on Friday, August 24, but will air through December.  We will keep you up to date on this breaking story.
