He's won two Daytime Emmy Awards for playing Will Horton, and now he now begins the final months of his time in the role. Massey is leaving DAYS when his four-year contract expires in December.
He tells Gay Star News that he is "flattered" by DAYS producer Ken Corday saying recently that they would not recast the role and that Massey is welcome back any time.
"Whatever they decide to do, I'll support it," he says. "The character is more important than the actor. He's a legacy character born on camera. I wouldn't be bitter at all if they go and recast."
Massey's Will has been involved in a popular romance with Sonny Kiriakis, dubbed "WilSon" by fans. The pairing has been voted favorite soap couple in the We Love Soaps reader poll 36 weeks in a row.
"I think everyone is just concerned with what will happen to WilSon," he says. "That's what I'm concerned about too."
"I don't want Will and Sonny to break up. I want them to be together forever and go off and get married. If I'm in school and not able to get back and they decide to bring someone else to play Will, I won't be upset and bitter. I want what is best for WilSon."
