Watch And Learn
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.
