4. He Was In A Band

Acting isn’t the only area where Atkins has had lots of success over the years. He also played the guitar in a band which booked gigs for several TV shows and movies including the serious Devious Maids. Now that his acting career has really taken off, it looks like his music is on hold.

After the murder of George Floyd in May, conversations regarding racism and police brutality started getting pushed to the forefront. Among those conversations are discussions about defunding the police, a concept which Atkins says he supports. He told The Observer, “When I heard about defunding of the police without understanding exactly what it was. I wasn’t sure that that was the best way forward.” He continued, “But after doing some research and understanding what that’s really asking, I think that the resources should be moved into different programs for our community, and that law enforcement shouldn’t be the first action in every single situation.”
