He was very shy off stage in front of girls because he was tall and thin, but when he was on stage he ...( read more)was in his element. Due to his father's work, his family (he has four sisters) moved around frequently. He thought his career was going to go in the direction of musicals and Broadway, but, while in California, he became successful on "The Young and the Restless" (1973) and his fate as an actor was sealed. He had a dream to be a pop star and his dream came true in 1988 when he crossed paths with Jack White, the noted German composer and record producer. Now, he is one of the most recognized faces on television throughout the world, he continues to star as chief lifeguard, Mitch Buchannon, in the TV series "Baywatch" (1989) and "Baywatch Nights" (1995), but he continues to sing too. He spends many hours visiting children's hospitals throughout the world. His charity, "Race For Life", works with the terminally ill and handicapped children in America. He is the father of two daughters, Taylor Ann and Hayley Amber, with ex-wife Pamela Bach.
