CHARLES MALIK WHITFIELD
Charles Malik Whitfield is currently a Series Regular on IF LOVING YOU IS WRONG (OWN), created by Tyler Perry. He also can currently be seen as a Recurring Guest Star on the current season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY: MY ROANOAKE NIGHTMARE (FX)
Whitfield has starred in dozens of prime-time shows and feature films, but one of his proudest professional moments so far is his leading role in the Emmy-winning mini-series, “The Temptations.” Nominated for an NAACP Image Award for his portrayal of Otis Williams, Whitfield says people still applaud his performance, years later.
Despite his impressive body of work, Whitfield could have easily ended up on a dramatically different path, if it weren’t for critical decisions he made as a teenager. A native of the Bronx, New York, Whitfield admits that he could have taken a very differnt path to where he is now. A high school teacher introduced Whitfield to acting, which became an outlet for him to channel his energy and passion.
Over the years, Whitfield has been a Recurring Guest Star on many hit television shows including EMPIRE (FOX), THE NIGHT SHIFT (NBC), SUPERNATURAL (CW), SOUTHLAND (TNT), and LAW & ORDER (NBC), along with numerous others.
