Bryan Dattilo

Birth Name: Bryan Ronald Dattilo
Birth Place:Kankakee, Illinois, United States
Profession: Actor


Born in Kankakee, Illinois, Brian Dattilo initially became interested in acting during his grade-school years in Beverly Hills, California, where most of his classmates had agents.

He and his sister, Kristen, decided to fit in, they needed an agent, too. Soon, the pair began taking acting classes and signed with The Savage Agency.

Within a few weeks, the pair landed parts in the film, The Adventures of Grizzly Adams. Dattilo followed with a role in the feature, Arcade, before securing guest spots in night time hits, Doogie Howser, M.D., In the Heat of the Night, Charles in Charge and California Dreams.

After graduating from Beverly Hills High School, Dattilo enrolled at Santa Monica College, where he majored in psychology.

However, his backup plan of becoming a psychologist was put to rest permanently, when he landed the role of Lucas Roberts (now Horton) on Days of our Lives in 1993.

Off screen, Dattilo enjoys surfing, traveling and all sports. He and his family reside in Los Angeles.
