In 2015, one of the more memorable performances has to be that of Rob Scott Wilson in the role of Ben Weston on Days of our Lives.  As it turned out, hothead Ben turned out to be the Necktie Serial Killer in one of the most shocking and talked about storylines of last year in soaps.

Over many months, Rob shared many scenes just with Kate Mansi (Abigail Deveraux)!  First, as her viable love interest and fiance’, and then as a killer unhinged.

On Thursday, Rob took to social media to send his gratitude, applause, and thanks to Mansi, who announced her decision to leave the 50-year-old soap opera after five years in the role of Abby.

Rob tweeted: “I think we made ppl feel feelings.. Grateful to have walked the walk down Crazy Town w/ ya @KateMansi #growth”

So, what did you think of Rob’s message? What did you think of the work of Kate and Rob throughout the last six months of airshows on DAYS? Comment below!

Both actors so much improved toward the end of their storyline!

I wish they would bring RSW back as Ben’s twin brother. He was amazing.

I have to say, when Rob Wilson came on the show, he was a handsome hunk who seemed to be given little more to do than be angry and be supportive. Those were his two big emotions, and he was never asked via story to do any more than that. But after making him the necktie killer, the guy got to start stretching those acting muscles – and surprise! – he actually had some skills! And the further into the story we got, the more we got to see. Turns out, there was a pretty damn good actor waiting to… Read more »

Ron, as Ben, broke the monotony that was DOOL. And, through Ben’s tortured soul, so was Abby reincarnated as one self-assured, in-your-face-actress. A 10++++ to both.

Rob, not Ron.

Both actors showed tremendous growth and I really feel an attachment to Kate Mansi as Abigail – I don’t think a re-cast would be the same for me. But, actors who are very young feel that the time is right to seek other avenues of the entertainment field by their agents, and probably don’t want to be “trapped” into a role for too long a period of time.

I can see that. I hate to see Mansi or Abigail go. I can also see – like you are saying- where young actors want to move on. With only 4 soaps on now & the constant up & down threat of the genre dying, i’m sure they want to expand their resume while they can. And while I fall in love with actors portraying their roles, I also see how some actors that chose to stay in the same role for too long (instead of going & coming back, etc) seem to lose some of their skill. I guess… Read more »

I thought the Ben and Abigail characters really shown with the necktie killer episodes. Rob really did great towards the end, as well as Kate. I wish they were allowed to have more meat to their part early on. Is this Days final year because so many are leaving? I couldn’t bear NOT having the show to watch every day. I have been watching since 1973!

“feel feelings”? I guess that’s why he’s an actor and not a writer.

Anyway, he did improve once he got decent story. Although, I think Ben should have been arrested shirtless.

Maybe the actress who currently plays Ciara could take over the role of Abbi since she has such “deep” acting skills. *insert sarcasm here* What we need is a tornado to come by and sweep those horrible kid actors away….DAYSNADO!!!!

Vivian is one of the worst casting decisions they’ve made in the last few years. But, Rob Wilson is another. Lots of people say he wasn’t given good material. Lots of actors on Days had crappy material and they did their best like Kate Mansi did with Abigail being wishy-washy and a liar. Rob just doesn’t have the acting chops. He was a boring hothead and tried embarrassingly hard as the Necktie Killer to be scary bad. The things he did were scary (trying to burn people alive) but he isn’t a good enough actor. Take that final scene with… Read more »

I understand, Kathy, what you are saying, but he did show some growth as an actor as the character became menacing, and some of his fight scenes, particularly the one which landed Chad in the hospital were very realistic. So, no, he’s not quite ready for a William Shakespeare play perhaps but I think he did all right with the role. However I agree 100% regarding these Teen roles, and their atrocious dramatics. The gal playing Ciarra just isn’t convincing to me. Am I the only one though I wonder who finds the scenes between Marlena and John to be….I… Read more »

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
