Next week, NBC’s longest running daytime drama, Days of our Lives, will make television history with the wedding of Will Horton (Guy Wilson) and Jackson ‘Sonny’ Kiriakis (Freddie Smith).
TVSource Magazine has a sneak peek of the nuptials between Will and Sonny and photos from the episodes. While All My Children had the first gay marriage between two women in soaps, Days of our Lives is having the first gay marriage between two men.
Starting on April 1, three consecutive episodes, the fan-favorite couple Will Horton and Sonny Kiriakis (affectionately deemed “WilSon”) will tie the knot in a beautiful ceremony presided by a surprise officiant. In 2012 Will (then played by two-time Daytime Emmy winner Chandler Massey) came to terms with his sexuality in powerful episodes that had audiences around the world captivated and rooting for the character to find love.
The slow building romance of the beloved couple has captured the hearts and minds of viewers far and wide culminating in their engagement earlier this year. With great surprises in store and excitement building around this momentous occasion, audiences will be blown away by the powerful performances to come.
