Days of our Lives actors gave 110 percent to scenes.
Now that the intense scenes with Eve torturing Ben are in the rearview mirror on Days of our Lives, Eve’s portrayer, soap veteran Kassie DePaiva, took to social media to look back on filming the taxing sequence. Of her co-star, Robert Scott Wilson, who plays Ben, she gushed, “I can’t say enough wonderful things about this man. What a pleasure to work with him. We were exhausted! He gave 110 percent to each moment.” DePaiva also expressed thanks for her character’s return and added, “Thank you @nbcdays for letting me play in the sandbox again.”
Wilson retweeted DePaiva’s praise-filled post and returned the sentiment. He said, “An absolute honor and pleasure w/ the fierce @KassieDePaiva,” then hilariously remarked, “Wouldn’t dream of being blown up, drugged and brainwashed by anyone else.” The actor summed up his response by complimenting his co-star on being ‘the real deal’ and felt that Days of our Lives was lucky to have her. “I love you,” he concluded.

Days of our Lives actor Paul Telfer, who plays Xander Kiriakis, couldn’t resist getting in on DePaiva’s walk down memory lane and recalled, “I remember when you guys were shooting this stuff and we’d glance up at the monitors like [stunned] and you’d just giggle haha.”
