Moreover, the couple is still secretive regarding their marriage dates, future plans, including children, and the romantic relationship they have been sharing. However, the actor is more comfortable reading a book or spending time with his family than doing something crazy like robbing a bank like his on-screen character. 

Likewise, in an interview with Bet back on July 31, 2012, Bokeem was asked about "what his fans would be surprised to hear about," where he expressed,

Well, that it’s not in my nature to chop people’s heads off, per se (Laughs), or rob a bank or any crazy thing I’ve done on screen. I’m just comfortable reading a book or spending time with my wife and my daughter or watching the fight on TV with the fellas. And that’s the thing that surprises people when I hang out, like, at a bar or by myself and I get to talking with someone. After a while, they’ll say, "You’re nothing like any of the characters I’ve seen you play." I take that as a compliment because I’ve convinced them in the role. 

This man, Bokeem, the pronounced movie actor, surely surprised people when he revealed that he hangs out with his friends or by himself, which is nothing like the characters he played in his career.

Bokeem Woodbine's Career

Bokeem was born on April 13, 1973, in Harlem, New York. He has practiced Hapkido and Shaolin Kung-Fu for the majority of his life.

Bokeem was 12 when he started having an interest in music. He even formed his own rock band, the '13 purple dragons,' and was the main vocalist and guitarist. His desire to become an actor began when he joined a school play called "Love Off Limits." Jaki Brown Karman, the casting director at the time, was thrilled by his performance and referred him to Whitaker.
