The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: Akbar Gbajabiamila Opens Up About His New Role
Speaking to TV Insider in a new interview, Akbar did give a little bit of a hint as far as what’s in store for his character Max. He told the site, “I’m not sure I’m at liberty to say but I will say I got a chance to reconnect with Thorsten. It was pretty cool to be back there. Both Lawrence [Saint-Victor, who plays Carter] and Thorsten were extremely helpful and calmed my nerves. I wanted to make sure I did a good job.”
Akbar also made it no secret that he’s long been a fan of the daytime television world. When asked how long he’s been watching soaps, Akbar said, “I started in elementary school and grew up a big fan of soaps. When I got to college and started playing football, I didn’t watch as often. But somebody [at CBS or B&B] got wind of it being my dream to be on a soap. Before I knew it, I had an offer! I was so nervous coming on. I was walking into their space. This was the holy grail for me when it comes to dramatic television. I didn’t want to mess it up. I was nervous. The whole time I was on set I was thinking, “This is the wildest thing ever!”
The Bold and the Beautiful Spoilers: What’s Next For Max?
Akbar was also asked a very huge question and that’s whether or not Max would be getting a last name! He explained, “Oh! That’s a good question. If Max gets a last name, it’s got to be powerful. I’m 6’6” and I weigh 260 lbs. Max’s full first name should be Maximus. I think his last name should have some oomph behind it!”
