Dylan Patton joined the cast of Days of Our Lives as Will Horton in February 2009. This is the 17 year old actor’s first foray into daytime. Playing the son of Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) and Lucas Horton (Bryan Datillo) might seem like a big challenge but the young actor handles it well.
“My mom is a drama starter, the queen of it. My dad starts drama unintentionally,” explained Patton in character when talking about his on-screen parents.
Patton expressed his how the two Days vets can relate to he and co-star, Taylor Spreitler. “I’ve gone back and watched all scenes from when they first started. They were young, so they know what it’s like for us.”
[Editor’s Note: We’ve interviewed Taylor Spreitler earlier this summer, at her sweet 16 birthday bash and on the set of Days of Our Lives.]
Given that I spoke with Taylor the day before, there wasn’t much else for us to talk about. She did however share a story about Alison Sweeney. The actress explained that Sweeney, who was far along in her real life pregnancy at the time, helped her with portraying a pregnant woman by visiting Spreitler one day in her dressing room. “She was squatting down and showing me how it looks when you’re giving birth and the way you scream. She had to explain to me how it feels. She helped me out a lot, and that was the first time I had met Ali.”
