AMC Alum Aiden Turner Stars In THE PERFECT BOYFRIEND For Lifetime

Aiden Turner JPI

On July 5, Lifetime Movie Network debuts THE PERFECT BOYFRIEND, a thriller starring Aiden Turner (ex-Aidan, AMC — Jason Brooks, best known to daytime fans as Peter on DAYS, co-stars) — but the title is a bit misleading, as Turner's role channels Aidan-when-he-went-psycho-and-kidnapped-Kendall toward the end of his Pine Valley run and not the dashing hero he played for most of his soap career. "My character, Jacob, is definitely more of a villain," says Turner. "He and his wife have a scheme to get rich. He goes to his high school reunion and targets his high school crush. The plan is for him to seduce her and murder her mother to get his hands on her money, but not everything goes the way you would think." The actor had a blast slipping into the sinister character. "It's a different kind of role for me and it was a lot of fun. We shot it in just a few weeks, which was challenging. Doing daytime television definitely prepared me to work quickly!"
