Obba Babatundé has every reason to cherish the Daytime Emmy he won in May for his portrayal of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Julius, but just as importantly, he treasures the countless memories he’s amassed in his nearly five decades in show business. Earlier this year we chatted with the veteran actor about the gigs (and people) that left a lasting impression on him over the years.
To what does Babatundé credit his lasting success as an actor? A quick physics lesson helped him explain his theory.
“There are laws that govern the planet,” he tells Soaps In Depth. “One is the law of gravity. Nobody can argue with that. The other is that, for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. If you throw a ball against a wall, it’s coming back. I think my life is also proof positive of that. If you invest in the good, it’ll keep coming back, because it’s a law of the universe!”
