Billy Flynn: Then & Now

We all know Billy Flynn from our favorite soap opera Days of Our Lives, but where did he come from and  how did he get here?

Days of Our Lives Fan Talk is going to do a little show and tell about the sexy 6′ tall Billy Flynn we know and love as Chad DiMera.

Billy Flynn

Billy Flynn was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. At an early age, he took an interest in acting through the influence of his great-grandparents, who encouraged him to follow his dreams.

Flynn was first introduced to film by watching “The Sound of Music” every day with his great-grandmother, reciting all of the songs along with the actors. His first acting role was that of the gingerbread man in an elementary school production. Flynn got so nervous from stage fright that he spent the entire play in his great-grandmother’s lap and then decided to take up playing sports.

Flynn was an all-star athlete in high school and was a major force to be reckoned with on the hockey rink as well as an all-star football player.

After leaving high school, he got his degree in finance, graduating from St. Cloud State with honors. He worked at Accenture for two years before making the move to Los Angeles. While working as a financial analyst for Warner Bros. in Los Angeles, he was reminded how much he was drawn to acting and decided to pursue his career full-time.

He is managed by PCM International. In no time, Flynn booked a commercial, working with director Jake Scott. It was a Taco Bell commercial.

He then starred in the short film “80 in 10.”

And the upcoming short film “Solely,” which he also co-produced.

He recently was featured opposite Melanie Griffith on the CBS series “Hawaii Five-0.”

Billy Flynn is starring in a movie titled “Dead On Arrival.” Be sure to catch this…the trailer looks awesome!

Shortly after the Hawaii Five-O gig, Flynn landed his infamous Chad DiMera role on DOOL, making his first appearance on September 2014. Interestingly enough, the saying ‘third time the charm’ must have rang very true for Billy Flynn. It took him three auditions to score the DOOL DiMera role before he was cast in it. The rest is history with the best yet to come!

Flynn is still very passionate about hockey and football and loves spending time with his close friends and family, especially heading back to Minnesota to visit his mother, Kim, stepfather, Steve, and four brothers.

Flynn became engaged to girlfriend Gina Comparetto on May 29, 2015, his 30th birthday.  He and Comparetto married on October 1, 2016.

May they be happily married “All the days of their lives.”
