Chandler Massey was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, with his two younger siblings. He is the son of Lewis (former Secretary of State of Georgia) and Amy Massey. In 2009, Massey moved to Los Angeles to attend UCLA and pursue his dream of acting. In December of that same year, after completing his first quarter at UCLA, he auditioned for the role of Will Horton on NBC’s daytime drama, “Days of Our Lives” and won the role. During Massey’s first four years on the show, he garnered four Daytime Emmy nominations and three wins for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series. He left the show in 2013 to continue his studies at UCLA and star in a few independent films, most notably 2018’s festival-winning The Aquarians and The Stand-Off opposite Olivia Holt. In 2017, Massey reprised his role as Will Horton on “Days of our Lives” and earned his fifth and sixth Emmy nominations. He can soon be seen in the Peacock spin-off of “Days of our Lives,” “Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem.” Other credits include Bad Judge and the thriller Hide in the Light. He is an accomplished singer and plays guitar, piano and ukulele.
Massey graduated from UCLA in 2018 and currently resides in Atlanta.
