B&B’s Matthew Atkinson Reveals How He Gets His Thrills (EXCLUSIVE)


While his alter ego, Thomas, certainly isn’t afraid to take risks, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Matthew Atkinson admits he’s a bit more selective in where and how he gets an adrenaline rush. He’s all-in for skydiving, for example, and grew up skateboarding rather recklessly. “I probably hurt myself just about every day doing that,” he admitted to Soaps In Depth, “but at the age I am now, I’m also smarter about things and mitigate my risks.” For example, Atkinson is the last guy you’ll ever see on a carnival rollercoaster. “Those crummy, rusty little rides? That’s something I’m never going to do,” he insists. “It’s such a terrible idea. You have a thrill for five seconds, but then your head is going to get cut off! I stay away from that.”
