Days of our Lives’ Chad DiMera doesn’t have much to celebrate – what with his wife being plagued with hallucinations and all – but, luckily, the same can’t be said for his portrayer, Billy Flynn.
Happy Birthday, Billy Flynn
That’s because he was born on May 29, 1985, in St. Francis, Minnesota, which means that this talented performer is turning 35 years old today! After working as an analyst for four years, Flynn decided to pursue an acting career.
His first professional job was a commercial for Taco Bell, which was quickly followed by the short film 80 in 10 (in which he played Liret). Subsequent work included a guest spot on Hawaii Five-O (as Nick Spitz) and a role in yet another short film – Solely (as Michael).

In 2014, Flynn was tapped to replace Casey Deidrick in the role of Chad DiMera. He remained on the NBC serial until February 2019 though he has since returned. Flynn has received two Daytime Emmy Award nominations for his efforts – both in the Outstanding Lead Actor category.
Flynn also played Chad in the app series, Chad and Abby In Paris, which featured a storyline separate from Salem where the young DiMeras tried raising their children in Paris for one year before an attack on Abby’s mother brought them home.
Flynn’s other acting credits include Escape Room (as Victor), Dead on Arrival (as Sam Collins), and Willowbrook (as Kyle) – all feature films. He has been married to his long time partner, Gina Comparetto, since October 1, 2016. Though the couple has no children (yet) they are the proud pet parents to two cats: Regan and Bill Purray.
