90210’s Tristan Wilds on what’s next for Dixon

90210Wilds

As the second season of 90210 races to it’s finale next Tuesday, there are still plenty of stories and drama to be stirred up so I rang up Dixon (aka actor Tristan Wilds) to find out the scoop as well as ask him about his non-90210 career, what he’s hearing from his many fans on Twitter and what he’d like to see Dixon go through in season 3.

Jim Halterman: What are fans going to see from Dixon the rest of the season?

Tristan Wilds: You can definitely expect some more relationship woes, to say the least. That’s definitely going to pick up. There’s going to be a lot of ups and downs. There’s going to be a lot of stuff going on in the house as well as in school. It’s going to be fun so you have to watch! Dixon always manages to find trouble somehow.

JH: Dixon seems like such a good guy but why does trouble seem to find him?

TW: I guess it’s that ‘good guys finish last’ thing. He’s definitely a good guy at heart but, you know, at the end of the day he’s a teenage kid and he always winds up finding himself into trouble when he’s just trying to have fun or do what he thinks he’s right.

JH: I guess the nature of the show is if you are in a relationship it probably won’t go smoothly but I know fans would love to see you with Silver (Jessica Stroup)?

TW: I think there will probably always be something with Dixon and Silver but, again, it’s Beverly Hills so you never know what to expect.

JH: What are the challenges for you in being on such a high profile show?

TW: I definitely think about the attention that it gets but it’s because of the fans. For me, it’s all about the fans. I thank everyone for watching but other than that I don’t think any of us really worry about it too much.

JH: Are you on Twitter and talk to your fans directly?

TW: I do have Twitter. @TristanWilds.  [Note: Wilds has over 36,000 Twitter followers!]

90210’s Tristan Wilds At Harlem Lanes Celebrity Strike-Out

Interview with Tristan

Tristan Wilds is just 20 years old, and he’s already amassed a mighty impressive stack of credits. He played Michael Lee on HBO’s acclaimed series The Wire, appeared in music videos for the likes of Jay-Z, Wale, and Alicia Keys, and acted in such films as Half Nelson and The Secret Life Of Bees. Right now, he co-stars as Dixon Wilson — adopted brother of Annie (Shenae Grimes) — on the CW’s 90210, and recently wrapped production on the upcoming, George Lucas-produced Tuskegee Airmen drama Red Tails. Over on 90210, which will conclude its second season on May 18, Dixon has been romancing two lovely ladies, Silver (Jessica Stroup) and Sasha (Mekia Cox). We recently caught up with Wilds for an exlusive interview in which he discussed events on 90210, acknowledged that lots of people still recognize him from The Wire (TV), and previewed Red Tails (2010).

What were your expectations for 90210 heading into the season, and how similar/different has the experience been so far?
Well, so far the experience has been a dream. You hear stories of the anarchy caused on sets; the arguments, the fights, and feuds. I expected to go in like we did last year, as if we were one big family. And we did, it’s been great and a lot of fun.

What intrigues you most about Dixon and his arc so far on the show?
(Laughs) The older women. It was great to venture into what happens when a younger guy meets an older woman. It was fun, and I have to applaud the writers for their creativity, and Mekia Cox for bringing Sasha to life. It just lets you know that anything and everything can, and maybe will happen in Beverly Hills.

As we build to the end of the season, what kinds of stories can we expect, both in general and for Dixon specifically?
Well, in general the stakes get raised for every character. These characters are now being tested. Dixon specifically gets himself in a little trouble and the new interest in his life is tested… so you have watch to see what happens.

Can we assume that “Confession,” the season-two finale will be a cliffhanger?
Well, as you know 90210 does not like to leave things all pretty and tidy. We have to leave you guys hanging for the next season. Some storylines answer questions you have had as viewers, but there are also storylines that may open up to get you guys ready for the next season.

Looking to season three, what are you eager to learn about Dixon as a character? Eager to play as an actor?
I’m eager to learn more about Dixon’s background, what makes him tick, who his family is, how and why he handles things the way he does, and other things along that line. I’m sure the writers have enough up their sleeves to make sure the third season comes back with full force.

You’ve wrapped Red Tails. Those men are growing older, sadly, and another one passed away the other day. To you what’s important about their story? And how important is it that it be told while some of them are still alive to enjoy the recognition?
Well, while we were growing up in the black communities, we never had too many prominent black heroes. We would have had Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to look up to. For some kids, those were the only heroes to aspire to. This is important to show that we have other heroes, heroes that fought for our nation, while fighting racism in our nation. They were the cream of the crop. And they were very young to take on such a daunting task and make history. So I think it’s important that everyone knows the story of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Give us a feeling for your character in the film. Is he based on a real figure? Is he a combination of men rolled into one?
My character’s name is Ray T. Gannon, also known as Junior, or Ray-Gun. He’s the young one of the bunch, just trying to fit in with the guys. He was made up of many different stories and Airmen, so, it required a lot of studying.

How did the shoot go? Did you work with George Lucas during the re-shoots that he reportedly directed himself? If so, how was that?
The shoot was amazing. We were in Prague and Croatia for the principal shooting. And yes, we got to work directly with Mr. Lucas himself for the reshoots. It was cool. Mr. Lucas is a real amazing and talented guy. It was a blast to work and create with him.

How often do people still recognize you for The Wire?
(Laughs) All the time! If I don’t hear Dixon, then they call me Michael. It never fails.

How satisfied were you with how they ended Michael’s storyline in the series finale of The Wire?
I liked it. It captured what Michael went through and who he had become as a person. It demonstrated how things can come back full-circle.

What will you be up to during your off-season?
Auditions and some family time. I also plan on relaxing and work on my music. New York is like a safe haven for me, so I can write and create here like crazy.

Trouble Will Arise From Dixon’s Gambling

In recent episodes of 90210, it has become obvious that Dixon has developed a gambling habit. (Remember when Brandon had the same problem on the original 90210?) According to Tristan Wilds, this is only the beginning of the trouble arising from his character’s wagers.

Wilds also hinted at what’s in store for Dixon’s “fake” relationship with Ivy.

Plus: See what he had to say about how Rob Estes departure will be addressed near the season’s end.
