WE LOVE SOAPS TV 3.12 On The Set Of DAYS With Casey Deidrick

On Episode 3.12, Damon L. Jacobs travels to the set of DAYS OF OUR LIVES and continues our series of interviews with actor Casey Deidrick, who plays Chad. The actor talks about Chad's influence on the show's Dimera family, his chemistry with both Freddie Smith and Chandler Massey, and the Brad Pitt workout that put him in top shape for his recent shirtless scenes.

Watch our latest episode below and let us know what you think. Enjoy a few of our favorite quotes, and tell us who you would like to see on WE LOVE SOAPS TV next.

WE LOVE SOAPS TV: In the past I've asked you about "Chill", the Chad and Will friendship, but lately I've been loving the scenes that have been going on between Chad and Sonny.
Casey Deidrick: I've been hearing a lot about that after the scenes I had the other day where Chad sticks up for Sonny. It's fun because the thing with "Chill" we never expected to happen either. It just kind of happened and the fans just kind of enjoyed us together. And now Sonny and Chad, everyone wants us together. I'm cool with it, whatever, I'm enjoying it. I love working with Freddie [Smith]. He's amazing to work with, and same thing with Chandler [Massey]. Whatever happens happens. I just feel blessed I can work with such talented actors.

WE LOVE SOAPS TV: On a much more surface note, Chad was shot this past week. Can I say, dude, you have been working out? You have been working it out.
Casey Deidrick: [Former executive producer] Gary Tomlin pulled me aside about three weeks prior to that shoot and was like, 'You're character is going to be shot.' I'm like, 'Oh no, I'm going to die?' And he said, 'No, no, no, no you're going to be shot in the shoulder. You're fine. I'm just giving you a heads up so you can work out, beef up.'

I was skinny. I immediately got onto the Brad Pitt workout program, the same workout program he used for Troy. I basically worked out every single day. I was on a strict diet no carbs, no sugar, just chicken, fish, vegetables, eating as much as possible every day.

WE LOVE SOAPS TV: How did you do that? No sugar? No sweets?
Casey Deidrick: I'd wake up first in the morning with three eggs and oatmeal. Waited two to three hours, [then] I'd work out and have a protein shake. And then I'd have like a chicken salad for lunch, and then I'd have another protein shake or almonds or peanuts or something like that. And then I'd have fish and vegetables and spinach and stuff like that for dinner. And right before I went to bed I had another protein shake. Probably 200 grams of protein a day.
