Life may not be very kind to Days of Our Lives Ben, who seemed to have lost both his wife and the love of his life due to a time jump. (Or perhaps not.) But actor Robert Scott Wilson has a reason to celebrate in the real world.
Happy Birthday, Robert Scott Wilson
That’s because he was born in Grafton, Massachusetts on November 9, 1987, which means that this talented performer is now 32 years old! Wilson made his way to New York after graduating from Grafton Memorial High School and landed his first appearance in the Anne Hathaway / Kate Hudson comedy film Bride Wars on the screen.
A subsequent relocation to Los Angeles resulted in numerous successful primetime shows including Super Ninjas, The Middle, Greek and The Secret Life of the American Teenager being employed as a fashion model, music video host, and guest roles.
Wilson posed for the early morning daytime game show The Price Is Right from August 2012 to the spring of 2014 — becoming the first male to do so. He also joined the cast of the Online Network’s continuation of the cancelled ABC soap opera All My Children during his tenure with that show.
Wilson took over Ben Weston’s role on the NBC series Days of Our Lives after saying goodbye to The Price Is Right. On May 22, 2014, he made his debut, replacing the current Justin Gaston.
Originally introduced to the famous Abagail / Chad pairing as a child abuse victim and a spoiler, Wilson’s Ben became a favorite fan. By the fall of 2015, however, the character had fallen into madness — driven by his anger over Abigail’s continuing relationship with Chad — and became a serial assassin called “The Necktie Killer.”
The plot resulted in the exit of Wilson from DAYS even though in 2016 and 2017 he would film brief reprisals. He returned to the sudser as a full-fledged regular beginning on June 1, 2018, and has since stayed front and center thanks to his legacy character love Ciara Brady— the 80’s supercouple sister Bo and Hope.
Soap Hub would like to wish Robert Scott Wilson a happy birthday. Our Lives Days are airing on NBC weekdays.
