Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, James said that he absolutely loves working on the set of Days of Our Lives and he loves working with everyone in the cast, too. “While Clyde was in prison, most of my scenes had been with Rob [Scott Wilson, Ben] who plays my son. I love working with him, but it’s been nice to reacquaint myself with the rest of the cast.
