Whether it’s falling in love with the right girl at the wrong time, being stalked by the wrong girl at the wrong time, or creating havoc with the surf team, headstrong Dixon on “90210” is always up to something. While currently on The CW show, Tristan Wilds, who plays Dixon, is also part of an esteemed class who starred in HBO’s gritty crime drama, “The Wire.”
When we visited the “90210” set, we caught up with the actor who agreed to give us free rein for Zap2it’s Celeb Slam Book.
“I said any five questions,” he tells us. “Throw at me and I’ll answer to the best of my abilities.”
Now, that’s what we like to hear.
Find out who gave Wilds his first kiss plus four more personal confessions:
1.) Who is the first girl you ever kissed?
The first girl I’ve ever kissed, I don’t know, I think it was like sixth or seventh grade. It was in my old neighborhood – right on the balcony of my projects. And I think we were playing skelly. For some reason, things got crazy, she slammed me against the wall and kissed me. I’ve never been the same since.
2.) If you could choose any other career, what would you be?
Probably a writer. I love to write and singing, too. Singing, writing, producing. There’s a lot of stuff I want to touch on. I’ll be doing other things and you guys will get to watch.
3.) What’s your worst habit?
I have a couple. I think one of my worst habits I’m doing right now – looking down. It’s hard for me to catch eye contact with somebody unless I really need to. But, looking down is one of my worst habits.
4.) What’s your favorite alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink?
Because I don’t drink, I have to go non-alcoholic. It would probably be Martinelli’s Apple Cider. I don’t know. It’s like champagne, but it’s not. You don’t have to worry about nothing and it’s still very celebratory.
5.) Who is your best friend and why?
His real name is Corey Jackson, but we call him “Frog.” He has big eyes. We grew up together. I knew this kid, since I was about seven, eight. We lived next door to each other until I was about 18, 19. And then, I moved my mom into a house. You know, we’ve always been best friends. That’s my brother.
“90210” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW
