In the drama monologue from Stay The Night, Wilkin opens up to Amanda about one story from his past that he regrets with regards to his father.
WILKIN: Does it mean that much to you?
When I was a kid, must have been seven or eight years old, I fell ill while at school. My head was pounding and I threw up and I went to the nurses office. Well, I was starting to burn up with fever and my father came to pick me up. I remember being happy to see him because I was so sick, but the minute we left the nurses office I caught a beating in the hallway. Right in front of this girl Tanya I had a crush on. I was smacked one way, then the other way, pushed into the staircase and kicked…and Tanya, by the look of her eyes, I knew she witnessed the whole thing. I was humiliated. I didn’t care less about the beating because I was used to getting hit, but the embarrassment, oh, that was horrible. I knew I’d have to face her and whoever else she told, when I went back to school. Are you happy I shared that story with you?
