Famewatchers, meet Christopher Sean, an Asian-American actor who recently “conquered” daytime TV via the long-running soap, Days of Our Lives. In Days, he plays Paul Narita — a famous baseball player who comes out of the closet and who finds comfort in the arms of Will Horton (played by Guy Wilson). However, Paul is still in love with his ex Sonny Kiriakis (played by Freddie Smith) who, this being a soap opera, happens to be the current boyfriend of Will Horton.
Here’s Christopher and Freddie swapping spit as Paul and Sonny.
Pretty cool, eh? Would you want to see him smooching this other guy? Hehe.
Is Christopher Sean Gay in Real Life? Or is he straight? If he is straight, does he have a girlfriend? Or is he still free, single, and available?
Unfortunately, we don’t have the answer to all the above questions. We don’t know yet whether he is gay or straight. And we don’t know what his current relationship status is like.
We do know that he does not have qualms playing a gay dude who gets to make out with another dude. This makes him A-Ok in our book. In an interview with Michael Fairman, Christopher Sean tells us more about his role:
On Days of our Lives, you get to play a professional athlete who is gay which has been a ripped-from-the-headlines story these days when you look at Michael Sam, Jason Collins, and Robbie Rogers, to name a few who have all come out over the last few years. How did the DAYS brass pitch you the role?
CHRISTOPHER: They said, “Are you comfortable playing a gay role?” And I said, “Yes!” I talked to my manager about it. He was like “Listen; at the end of the day, it’s a very controversial thing to play a professional athlete who is coming out.” And so for me, to be able to be a part of the gay right movement, seriously, it’s like “Wow!”
So, viewers just saw the big lip-lock between Paul and Sonny. How has it been working with Freddie Smith (Sonny)?
CHRISTOPHER: He is cool and awesome, and one of the nicest and most humble people I have ever met, which is so nice when someone is a celebrity.
Did you watch back the big reveal when viewers learned 100% that Paul must have a past with Sonny, and is gay?
CHRISTOPHER: I had forgotten that last Wednesday was the day the reveal aired, and so my Twitter account blew up with “OMG! OMG! OMG!” I couldn’t believe I missed it, but my parents did DVR it! So, I am just going to go to their house, and we are all going to watch it together.
So, what can you say to us … do you think Paul will end up being a good guy or bad guy?
CHRISTOPHER: We are five months ahead on DAYS … but I am also on Hawaii-Five-0, and I am the bad guy on there which is awesome! On DAYS, I get to play Paul Narita who is aware of his emotions and is intelligent. I will say, his intentions are as honorable as he possibly can make them.
Christopher Sean: Beauty King. When he was younger and starting his showbiz career and before he made it to the TV big leagues (via Days of Our Lives), Christopher Sean went by the name Christopher Friel.
As Christopher Friel, he won some male beauty pageants such as Ginoong Pilipinas USA 2006 (Mr. Philippines USA 2006). Check him out with his Mr. Philippines trophy.
He then won the Mr. Asia USA the following year, 2007. [Want more Asian hunks?]

Should we include him to our list of gorgeous men wearing loincloth or whatever that thing is he’s wearing over his boxer briefs.

Christopher Sean Ethnicity or Ethnic Background. He is part-Caucasian but the other part-half is not clear. Some websites say he is part-Japanese while others say he is part-Filipino. If he is not part-Filipino, he may have misrepresented himself as one to qualify for the Mr. Philippines contest. He then dropped his claim of being part-Filipino when he started making a name for himself.
