Kevin Mathurin explains Charles feelings

When asked how Charles feels when he sees Manpreet’s priority is to protect her current life, Kevin Mathurin, who plays Charles, told Entertainment Daily and other media: “Obviously he’s angry because he’s waited fifteen years for an explanation.

“And the explanation is, it excels more than what he expected. It’s an unbelievable plot so to speak. So this woman that he was absolutely in love with has been a total liar, it’s not even the right name.

“He questions whether those two years were real. He’s got his explanation, he wants to let his son Ethan know and he just wants to move on.

“And he sees that she is obviously married and got a life and he doesn’t want to interfere in that at all. He’s got his explanation and that’s all that he needs. He’s happy to move on.”
