Days Of Our Lives’ Freddie Smith is opening up about the emotional scene where his character had to say goodbye to his mom.
The Emmy Award winner, who plays Sonny Kirkiakis on Days of Our Lives, sat down with Dishin Days to discuss if it was difficult expressing emotion in the scene where his character Sonny and his dad Justin [Wally Kurth] say goodbye to Adrienne [Judi Evans], who just passed away from a car accident.
“It’s kind of layered,” Smith stated.“ It’s not like I didn’t have a connection with Judi Evans. All of that growth as a person, as a character, all went into it and there was something super special about working with Wally and Judi in those moments so all of that kind of naturally added to it.”
We asked Smith how he was able to be vulnerable in front of the camera.
“When you’re doing something emotional I don’t know how other people do it but for me you wake up you’re in a good mood you go to work and sometimes you’re not sad so what I’ll do is I’ll listen to music or I’ll look at videos on Youtube of anything that can be touching or sad.” Smith stated,“then I allow my acting to take it from there.”
Smith received praise from fans on social media about his performance and feels like this was the highlight of his career.
“It was really touching,” Smith shared, “I heard a lot from people on social media sharing it brought them back to when they lost a parent or a loved one and they were saying it was connected with how they felt and it was the best compliment I could have ever gotten because this was a monumental moment I think I will always remember in my career.”
