When everyone took up a hobby at the start of the pandemic, actor Charles Parnell did too.
The “Top Gun: Maverick” star started baking sourdough, and it’s something he still does today. “My little baby girl Phyllis Wheatley just celebrated her second birthday,” the actor laughed as she explained her bread starter. “She’s waiting in the refrigerator.”
Parnell compared how his bread starter is similar to his career starter. “I started out small and made small pieces of myself to make the rotis that I kept in films,” he said.
The actors are making a lot of bread, literally and figuratively, as the sequel to “Top Gun” is already a box office hit. Parnell describes the entire film experience as something actors dream of early in their careers.
Parnell explained, “When you get a job like this and then you get red carpet experience and all that is happening, that little kid who wanted to be an actor, gets to voice it.” “He starts coming back and you start engaging with him in a great way. Like the fantasy part of acting is actually present in such moments. ,
The “All My Children” actor is already a huge fan of the film and claimed that it has elements for everyone. “I think it’s a great film, it feels like it really hits all the places where you want to make a film,” he said. “If there’s a couple and one in action and one in romance then you can both be happy when they come out of the theatre.”
Parnell described the sequel as a love story, but not in the way you might imagine.
“It is a romance between people. It is also a romance between humans and machines called jets. It is a love letter to aviation,” he explained.
‘Top Gun: Maverick’ is in theaters now.
