As one of the last remaining ‘DiMeras’ in the land of Salem, Billy Flynn’s Chad DiMera is one of the hottest characters on Days of Our Lives (DOOL) right now. He’s handsome, charming, and oh so talented! While we feel like we already know him so well by watching his character on-screen, there’s much to know about the man behind the character! Here are 10 things some fans might not know about DOOL’s Billy Flynn.

10. Acting Wasn’t His First Gig

You often hear about struggling actors taking jobs as bartenders, waiters/waitresses, and other odd (temporary) career choices. Flynn is a bit of an exception to this rule. He pursued a Finance degree, minoring in Economics, and graduated in 2007 from St. Cloud State University. He quickly interned as a Financial Analyst at Accenture and then moved on as an Analyst for Warner Bros. Studios.

9. Made The L.A. Move

After about a year at his Warner Bros. job, Billy made a huge decision to pursue acting and headed to Los Angeles. Seems like the call paid off, but not without a little bit of struggle. He landed his Chad DiMera role about three years after being in L.A. and the rest as they say is history.
