Davidís desire to become an actor came from a young age, stemming from being involved in school drama classes to being part of the stage crew on a theatre production. However, after he learnt to become a drummer at age thirteen and joined a professional band, acting took a back seat. Most of his teen years continued to be involved in the band, until David decided to take a break at twenty years old and pursue a different path. He met his wife Rosslyn and began a family, while building up his own commercial trade business.

His acting career got a kick start when he recieved the opportunity to be an extra in the TV series McLeod's Daughters, which started filming in Adelaide in 2001. Since that day, David has been involved in a multitude of film, television and theatre productions, such as The Boys Are Back, Oranges and Sunshine, and A Second Chance.

He has continued to extended his skills by attending many acting courses and workshops, and even producing and directing his own short films. His dedication to the character, respect for the cast and crew, and willingness to work hard makes David a well-liked actor. His determination and love of the industry has fuelled his desire to obtain lead roles in big-budget films.

Watch David's latest video for the industry-first online audition named 'World Cast Movie'. With instructions to make the acting in the audition more third-dimensional, David takes his character role of a professional hitman and delves deeper to create a truly believable scenario. The premise of the film is that twelve strangers have taken shelter in a basement during a solar storm, but soon conclude that surviving each other is more difficult than surviving outside. A mix of "Panic Room" meets "The Breakfast Club", and "Das Boot" meets "Withnail & I".

One of keys to Landscape Scene‘s success lies in the fantastic performance from the lead actor, David Wilson. The entire story is based on the painter’s confidence and unwillingness to save the victim, who is played by Chec Musolino; Wilson pulls this off better than many of Hollywood’s best could. Not only does Wilson make the audience chuckle at the absurdity of his actions, but at the end, when he is comforting Musolino, he manages to capture the audiences’ hearts. When the hit man kills Wilson, we are left in a genuine state of shock thanks to his endearing performance.
