On Sunday, July 25, actors Robert Scott Wilson and Brandon Beemer participated in a virtual fan event for Star Image Entertainment for an intimate group of fans. Digital Journal has the scoop.

A portion of the proceeds from this Zoom fan event benefits Cedars CanSupport, a Canadian charitable organization that benefits cancer patients and their families.

Wilson is known for his portrayal of Ben Weston on “Days of Our Lives,” while Beemer plays Shawn-Douglas Brady on the NBC soap opera. They shared their insights on the greatest lesson that the acting profession has taught each of them.

Wilson remarked, “Acting has taught me to live life to the fullest, and to live in the moment.” “These are the things that will propel your work,” he said. “At the end of the day, we can’t be good actors without exploring more, doing things, and being active.”

“We take our lessons from the good, the bad, and the ugly. We draw from our experiences,” Wilson added.

Beemer noted the importance of keeping cool, in an effort to calm yourself down especially at times when things get overwhelming. “For me, sometimes I have scenes where I feel the anxiety coming on. As an actor, I have the task of remembering the lines and hoping the performance is going to go well, and when your heart starts pumping, it is all about calming yourself down,” Beemer explained.

“You need to calm yourself and ground yourself,” Beemer admitted. “When the challenges in life happen or when you are overthinking things, I will draw from that and calm myself down. I will remind myself that ‘it is okay’.”
