Jeremy Meeks made headlines as the “hot felon” and now he's starring with Jordyn Woods in the new thriller “Trigger.”
“Extra's” Rachel Lindsay talked to the star, who opened up about his career, family, and whether he's single!
Meeks, who got into modeling after prison, is now acting, saying, “I just believe in myself. And once I started acting, I finally found a passion and it feels good.”
Meeks makes his film debut in “Trigger” playing Trey, who is paroled from a murder charge and comes to stay with his brother.
He told Rachel of the role, “You guys are going to be shocked. It's an emotional roller coaster. It's up and down.” He added, “It was very true to self, in this character.”
Meeks went on, “He was actually released from prison from doing 10 years… and I've actually done 10 years.” Saying he can relate, “He had to get out and had nowhere to go, so he went to his brother's because that was the only place he knew… And I know what that feels like. I've gotten out from prison and had nowhere to go but to a family member's home, and it triggered a lot in me and it made it very easy for me to connect with the character.”
