Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers hint that Alex Kiriakis will continue to struggle with his firing from Titan; however, today, his portrayer has something major to celebrate. It’s been nine years since actor Robert Scott Wilson stepped foot on the soap as Ben Weston and since that fateful May 22nd, 2014, he has evolved incredibly over the years.
DOOL Spoilers: From An Average Salem Hottie To A Killer To A Hero
Ben was originally the love interest to Abigail Deveraux (Marci Miller); however, about one year after his debut in May 2014, DOOL did a major pivot and transformed Ben Weston from a regulation hottie to the town’s Necktie serial killer. During an interview with Soap Opera Digest (SOD) in 2020, Wilson notes that he didn’t see the serial killer storyline as a “door closing” but rather an “opportunity”, and Robert wasn’t wrong.
A few years later in 2018, Ben would return from his time in a facility, fully rehabilitated and ready to jump into Salem storylines as a “changed man”. It took some time for others in the little town to trust him, but one person he was convinced of rather early on was Ciara Brady (Victoria Konefal), and the Cin super couple was born.

By the time 2022 hit, Konefal decided to step away from the soap and was dropped to contract status. Cin was given a happily ever after canvas exit, not only sailing the world as Ciara’s parents once did but also growing their family of two to three with Beauregard Weston (Cody and Warren Kransnow), and now another one is on the way.
With that said, Wilson wanted to stay on the show, and Days threw fans a curveball when Alex Kiriakis once again arrived in the land of Salem, shortly after Ben left, with Robert as his portrayer. Now he dives into a new challenge as the playboy Kiriakis is nicely evolving into a decent human being.
