David Alexander Kaplan as Rufus Weylin in Kindred | FX
David Alexander Kaplan
Rufus, portrayed by David Alexander Kaplan, is the only child of Tom and Margaret. Raised in a dysfunctional household by a father who shows frustration and disappointment towards his son, and an overbearing protective mother, he sometimes acts out with petulance and puckishness but deep down he’s isolated and lonely. Desperate for companionship, and at times life-saving help, he extends a long reach to find it.
Head of the plantation cookhouse and the last enslaved holdover from the previous owner.
A healer, fearless and sharp-minded with an air of confidence, purpose, defiance and mystery.
