NBC ‘Days of Our Lives’ Birthday: Happy Birthday, Freddie Smith!
Back in 2011, Smith appeared for the first time on Days of Our Lives. He plays the role of Jackson “Sonny” Kiriakis. This role eventually awarded him a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Young Actor n 2015. Sonny is the child of Justin Kiriakis (Wally Kurth) and Adrienne Johnson Kiriakis (Judi Evans). Sonny is an openly-gay character on the daytime drama, and has done an outstanding job creating awareness on gay bashing, coming out, and LGBTQ struggles. Fans fell in love with Sonny when he began his romance with Will Horton and Paul Narita. Smith’s storyline spiralled several openly-gay plotlines within the franchise.
In 2017, Sonny rekindled his relationship with Paul and becomes named CEO of Titan Industries. Since that point, the audience has been informed that Smith’s contract may not be renewed. Terrible news for Sonny supporters out there. He still occasionally makes an appearance on the daytime drama, and he has also gotten into commercial appearances. You can see Smith on commercials for Taco Bell, JC Penny and Samsung. At 32 years old, it’s clear that nothing is out of Freddie Smith’s reach!
