By Jae-Ha Kim, Tribune Content Agency on

"As someone who was on a plane every weekend, I thought I was tired of traveling until now," says actor Dorian Missick ("Six Degrees," "The Manchurian Candidate," "The Good Wife"), who splits his time between Brooklyn and Los Angeles. "My family is already planning a trip to Bermuda after all of this. It's literally the topic of all of our daily Zoom sessions." One of the stars of the ABC legal drama, "For Life," Missick plays inmate Jamal Bishop on the series. Fans may follow him on Instagram (

Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?

A. The Bahamas - Harbour Island in particular. My family is from there, so I get to see them in Nassau and then dip over to Harbour Island for a vacation. Bahamians are the most chill and friendly people in the world. And, yes, yes -- I'm biased. (Laughs)

Q. To someone who was going to the Bahamas for the first time, what would you suggest they check out?

A. I highly recommend the Fish Fry, which is a row of restaurants and bars and great folks. I would recommend hitting up Junkanoo, if it's going on. And my favorite sports bar for some real local chilling (is the) Prime Time Lounge.

Q. What untapped destination should people know about?


A. I'm not sure how unknown it is, but the Maldives was incredible! My wife and I went there for the holidays and it blew our minds.

Q. What was the first trip you took as a child?

A. The first time I remember packing a suitcase and getting on a plane was to see my grandma in Nassau. I loved the plane immediately. I couldn't get over the fact that I was eating food in the sky!

Q. What's the most important thing you've learned from your travels?
