CBS Soaps In Depth - - Days of our Lives -

Given what he’s done with DAYS’ off-kil­ter Ben, it’s clear that Robert Scott Wil­son knows a thing or two about what makes a char­ac­ter com­pelling. How­ever in his mind, there’s al­ways room to grow. An avid film fan, he ap­pre­ci­ates it when fans gift him with DVDS that he can use for study. “It’s al­ways fun to see them get­ting my taste spot-on with Good­fel­las, Casino, older Mob films and any­thing [by di­rec­tor Mar­tin] Scors­ese,” he shares. “I’m a huge Leonardo Di­caprio fan and with Scors­ese, Leo’s al­ways in­volved some­where!” While some­times he watches come­dies to off­set the dark­ness, the ac­tor ad­mits that more re­cently, he’s been em­brac­ing the crime genre for in­spi­ra­tion. “I promised my­self I’d start watch­ing old films that were my fa­vorites, so I watched The De­parted [and] The God­fa­ther, which is the best,” he con­fides. “[Mar­lon] Brando is still my fa­vorite ac­tor of all time.”

“I like to see them work,” Wil­son says of the artists who in­spire him.
