Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Victoria Konefal will be exiting the role of Ciara Brady, but there’s one person fans have been waiting to hear from. Of course, we’re talking about the other half of DOOL’s popular “Cin” pairing! Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Weston) and Konefal have built a successful onscreen couple, so how does Wilson feel about his main costar’s departure?
In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Wilson opened up about this bittersweet goodbye. Although Wilson certainly wants Konefal’s career to take off, he knows it’s hard to lose the “Cin” magic. Wilson talked about supporting Konefal completely while still keeping hope alive that she might return.
“If for some reason she doesn’t crack something good, I hope we can pick up where we left off, because we’ve got something special,” Wilson said. He mentioned how proud he was of Konefal and the work they’ve put into their story together.
Although Ben and Ciara’s relationship is being cut short for now, Wilson insisted they accomplished a lot.
Naturally, Wilson had to address the possibility that Ciara might be recast someday. The Days of Our Lives actor suggested things would be different with someone else in the role, but he knows life goes on in Salem.
Wilson doesn’t envy the person who’d have to step in Konefal’s shoes though! He noted that any Ciara recast that comes along would have her work cut out for her.
Nevertheless, Wilson gets that Days might take that route at some point. He seems open to continuing Ben and Ciara’s love story in some form. “But, at the end of the day, Ben is Ben and Ciara is Ciara,” Wilson said.
Wilson acknowledged that the show has to keep moving forward, so he didn’t dismiss the idea of a recast entirely.
Even so, Wilson admitted he’d rather see Days of Our Lives hold off on that. From Wilson’s perspective, a Ciara recast isn’t needed right this second. It sounds like Ben will dive into some other storylines one Ciara’s out of the picture, so he’ll have plenty to keep him busy.
“I don’t think that would be the move right now, to recast her,” Wilson said. The Days star argued it’d be better to let things play out for a while and see if Konefal might come back. Wilson urged all the “Cin” fans out there to “keep the faith,” so we’ll see how it goes.
