Days of Our Lives star Robert Scott Wilson sure has come a long way over the years! While the actor is now best known for his roles as Ben Weston and Alexis Kiriakis on the hit Peacock soap, his early beginnings looked quite different. In fact, before making it big in the daytime television world, he actually worked as a model on The Price is Right. Here’s what you need to know.
Days of Our Lives Blast From The Past: Check Out How Robert Scott Wilson Has Changed Over The Years
While speaking to Soap Opera Digest back in 2003, Robert opened up about how he managed to get a job on the hit CBS game show. The actor admitted back then that it certainly wasn’t easy. He told the publication in a throwback interview, “It was a casting just like I get for anything else through my agency. When I saw it, I thought it was going to be huge. [My reps told me] ‘Rob, you are really going to be jumping through hoops for this because this is a nationwide search in papers and on radio everywhere.’ I went to the open call like everyone else. We shot five webisodes of just the audition process. It was nerve-wracking because we were putting ourselves completely on the line. I had never done that. For auditions, of course, you let yourself open up. But to have it all videotaped, be shown on air and not know if you are going to win is nerve-wracking. The judges and the whole nine yards was new for me. But it worked out!”
