Kudos and the Soap Hub Performer of the Week honors are due for DAYS star Robert Scott Wilson, if for no other reason, for making us forget that he was ever onscreen playing a redeemed-ish serial strangler – Ben Weston who? The fact that the actor has made horndog Alexander Neil Kiriakis palpable is just a testament to his inherent likeability.

Robert Scott Wilson – Performer of the Week

They say that if you do what you love then it will never feel like work, and it’s probably safe to say that chiseled god Wilson isn’t hating his latest assignment – which requires him to strut his stuff and simulate passionate ardor with a bevy of lovely ladies.

Then again, he is playing someone who fans readily agree is an acquired taste. It’s not so much that Alex is a bad guy – he’s certainly no out-and-out villain – it’s just that he’s the kind of guy that gives men everywhere a bad name.

There doesn’t seem to be a woman that Alex wouldn’t make a pass at, he’s convinced that he can eventually charm a yes out of a femme even if her first inclination is to say no, and he has the ungentlemanly habits of failing to listen to a woman when they tell him anything about their person.

And yet, Alex isn’t someone who the fairer sex would find threatening or altogether reprehensible – gal pal Sloane Peterson (Jessica Serfaty) wasn’t even that put out that he couldn’t remember her last name or the fact that she was a lawyer even though she told him, “like, six times.” – and that’s down entirely to Wilson’s charm, joie de vivre, and Alex’s wherewithal to admit defeat.

For example, he bowed to Allie Horton’s (Lindsay Arnold) and Chanel Dupree’s (Raven Bowens) resolution not to have a threesome, but he did have to inquire about the possibility…twice!

Wilson has potent chemistry with Zach Tinker, his alter-ego’s on-screen sibling, and the scenes in which Alex reacted in horror to Sonny Kiriakis’s insistence that he’d soon meet a woman who would knock him off his feet and steal his heart were particularly entertaining.

But Robert Scott Wilson’s best work to date was opposite Abigail Klein, Days of our Lives’ newest Stephanie. The two had enough sizzle to cook a ribeye, and we may have just been witness to the birth of a new supercouple. Now, if only the two could get on the same page…
