Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Robert recalls his first thoughts when he found out that he would be playing a serial killer. He told the publication in an interview, “At first it was a shock, because I was like, ‘Wow! This might be the end of Ben.’ I had thought that for a split second, but then, as soon as I really thought about it, it was like, ‘I will have an opportunity to show a little more of my range.’ They hadn’t written me a lot of wild rollercoaster moments up until that point. It was an opportunity for me to open Ben up, dig through the trauma of who he really is, and play the bad side of him, bring that to light, and give him some more dimension. I saw it not really as a door closing, but an opportunity.”

And while Ben has certainly made a lot of strides to not only better his life, but to also turn his wrongs into rights, the actor says there are particular moments from that storyline that still stand out for him to this day.
Robert added, “Strangling Will because it was his friend. It was the first moment that Ben was conscious about what he was doing. He knew he had to do it. It wasn’t something where he blacked out. And everybody liked it because we did the scene again with another actor. We re-created it as best as we could. Guy Wilson was playing Will, and he was fantastic. Playing Ben at that moment may have been some of the darkest work I have ever done, for sure.”
With that said, here’s hoping that Ben continues on the path that he is on and that he doesn’t go back to his murderous ways. But then again, you can always expect the unexpected in Salem, right? Of course, ‘Days of Our Lives’ fans will have to tune in to find out what happens next!
