Robert Palmer Watkins Wants To Do It All! The GH Alum Dishes On His Latest Projects, Music, Soaps, and More! (EXCLUSIVE)

Robert Palmer Watkins Dishes On His Latest Projects, Music, Soaps, and More! Read more here ---->>>


 

Soap Opera News had the pleasure of speaking with General Hospital alum Robert Palmer Watkins about a number of incredible projects he has in the works! We also discussed his new music and, of course, soaps!

Watkins was excited to share that his latest project, titled Puncture, is set to be released this fall. The film shows the battle between a drug cartel and a local gang after one of the crew takes off with the cartel’s product. “It's a battle between trying to save him, his sister, and our own asses. It’s exciting! It’s got a little bit of a Breaking Bad, Narcos kind of feel,” he told us. “This film is actually a short film and we’re hoping to turn it into a feature. It’s a different role than I’m typically used to playing. A little rougher around the edges. I got to buzz my head and change up my looks a bit which is always fun.”


“One of the reasons I like acting is that you get to play all types of characters. You don’t have to choose one personality and as an adult, I get to play.” One of those different personalities includes his role as Jack, an undercover cop, in Last Three Days. “It will be coming out towards the end of November. I shot that almost three years ago now. So, I’m really happy  to finally share that.”


Never one to not be juggling multiple things at once, Robert recently landed a guest spot on The Walking Dead: World Beyond, a spinoff of the hit AMC series. “I play Lt. Frank Newton and I got to play opposite Julia Ormond, who is a big star. Getting to work with somebody of that caliber is just amazing. I was actually slated to do several episodes but the storyline was changing while we were on set. So, my part is pretty small in this season but the good news is it’s The Walking Dead and there’s always room for me in later seasons. They do bring people back pretty frequently and build the world around the characters. So, I’m hoping - fingers crossed - that they develop my storyline more.”


When Soap Opera News last chatted with Robert he teased about some music and now we are finally about to hear some! “I finally am going to release some original stuff! I know I’ve been saying that a long time,” he laughed. “I’ve got six songs that are pretty much done but we’ve got two that we feel like are ready to be released as singles. We’re really really excited to film the first two music videos and are hoping to release one of them before the holidays.”


“What's cool about music is that it’s not that far off from acting in that you draw from life experiences and are just being truthful about what you are going through,” Watkins expressed when we asked him about what inspires his music. “I think my producer B. Martin has really taught me that it needs to be from me. It's really like a therapy session with him. It’s all personal and that’s how I feel about acting. I always try to bring a piece of me to whatever character I’m playing.”


Another character that he connected to was that of Dillon Quartermaine on General Hospital. “I loved the filmmaking stuff when I first got on the show. He comes from the Quartermaine family but he chooses to go chase his dream and step outside the norm. He could have easily stayed in Port Charles and lived off his family’s money but he is an artist and took a chance moving to LA. Which is similar to me and how I left the East Coast to come out here to be an actor.”

Robert looks back fondly on his time with the soap sharing that it taught him a lot about being prepared as an actor. ”It was obviously one of my favorite gigs. It gave me a huge start and a platform that has led to a ton of other jobs. I loved the character and the GH family that I’ve built there. I’m very excited about all the other stuff I’ve got going on right now but if they were to call and want me back I would definitely consider it.”


Adding to his impressive list of upcoming projects, Robert shared that he has a couple of films: Stay and a Lifetime movie, Nanny Danger that will be coming out. He also just began filming a comedic miniseries with his friends that it expected to be released next year. “That’s amazing because I was part of the ground floor on that,” he expressed. “And last but certainly not least, I did a pilot a couple of years ago called Green Valley. It’s a funny, off-the-wall comedy about the cannabis industry from Ryan Francis.” He shared that it was initially picked up but after some issues with the network it is now back in their hands. They plan to go in and “revamp some things” hopefully releasing it as a miniseries.


As fans of Robert and his talent, it’s lovely to see his career taking off. We asked him what was a goal he had for the future and he certainly had some ambitious ones like winning an Oscar or a Grammy. Though, what was the most interesting was his take on his journey to stardom. “I want to do it all, you know. Why limit myself? Sometimes I just have to focus on a couple of things because I’ll start wanting to do everything. I’m just trying to walk through doors that seem positive and like they are leading in the right direction. I think if we plan things out too much we almost limit ourselves from what could possibly be. That’s why I say ‘never say never.’”


Thank you, Robert, for the fun talk! We are very excited about what’s coming your way!
