BEST YOUNGER STARS
Chandler Massey as Will Horton, Days of our Lives
Chandler Massey literally gave Days of our Lives life this past year. His portrayal and journey as Will came to terms with his sexuality was one of the few bright spots on this show. Massey’s ability to play off of his scene partners is nothing short of flawless. He has chemistry with every single person, sometimes inappropriately so – can we say EJill anyone? – but we absolutely love him for it. From Massey’s delivery, to showing us his vulnerability, and strength, we definitely think Massey is someone to keep an eye on in the coming years.
Kim Matula as Hope Logan, The Bold and the Beautiful
Kim Matula’s portrayal of the love-stricken ingenue who longs for that happy ending with her true long secured her this win. She plays Hope with a deep and painful vulnerability and the more obstacles she faces in her quest to be happy, the more layers she infuses into a character that has loved and lost a lot.
