Mykel Shannon Jenkins Dishes on The Bold and the Beautiful Opportunity
Mykel Shannon Jenkins is an optimist.
Even after his character was killed off General Hospital, the actor never got down about himself or his career.
When I was leaving [General Hospital] everybody was feeling bad, but I was excited, because I was excited about tomorrow, about the next story that I was actually going to be able to tell, Jenkins recently said.
That opportunity turned out to be Detective Charlie Baker, son of Lt. Bradley Baker (Dan Martin). The character first appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful on November 21.
I like him, he's got a little temper, Jenkins said of his character. He has a passion for women and he's trying to find a way to be a man, the kind of man with status, respect - outside of his daddy's shadow. He's extremely proud to be a Baker.
He's just like any other man who's trying to find his way. There's a need to be loved in him, but a fear that a woman might not be able to understand.
