When “Days of Our Lives” contacted Billy Flynn to play Chad a little bit longer, he didn’t think twice about accepting the offer. In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, he said the soap had written off Chad DiMera and Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi) in a certain way that allowed them to bring the pair back without any problem. The offer came at a perfect time since Flynn’s schedule to shoot scenes for an upcoming movie was moved to July.
When asked about the first time he left Days of Our Lives, he said he was in shock but also knew that it was coming. He needed some time to focus on himself and admitted that he had a lot of personal things going on that time. Flynn added that things became disoriented after the show stretched Chad and Abigail for so long.
He started asking himself what he can do to improve in case he gets asked to come back. He also started planning for his future in case he didn’t get that call. During his four-year stint on the show, he was always thinking that “This is never gonna last.”
