Damon is a charmer who draws people, especially the ladies to his side with his charisma. Thus, speaking on Damon’s character, Michael said;
“Damon is a good-looking, rich, successful businessman. He oozes charisma and people are easily drawn to him. He has an eye for the ladies and they for him. He knows what he wants and will do whatever it takes to get it.”
Meanwhile, Craig was led into the Scandal! family just over a month after the show announced that legendary actor Jerry Mofokeng would be returning on set after a two-year break.
In the meantime, Craig has already started recording with the show. Earlier this week, he posted a picture of himself on set of the show with Jerry. Fans were shocked to see Jerry’s character make a comeback on the show in October.
