It isn’t easy being both the conscience and right-hand man of the devilish Dollar Bill Spencer, but The Bold and the Beautiful’s Justin Barber handles the task admirably. And that’s a feat worth celebrating… something that Justin’s portrayer, Aaron D Spears knows a little something about.
Happy Birthday, Aaron D Spears!
And that’s because he was born on July 10, 1971, in Washington, D.C., which means that this talented performer is turning 49 years old today! After studying computer science and mathematics at Delaware State University – and giving a career in the NFL serious consideration – Spears packed his bags and headed for Los Angeles.
Upon arrival, he immediately landed his first paying gig: Officer Washington, a recurring character on Sunset Beach. Spears subsequently appeared in episodes of Pacific Blue, Arrest and Trial, The District, and The X-Files, as well as films like Cappuccino and Makin’ Baby.
Spears made his BB debut on September 14, 2009, and he has continued in the role of Justin Barber ever since. Between 2016 and 2017, Spears pulled double duty by continuing to play Justin – on a recurring basis – while also appearing on Days of our Lives as Lieutenant (and later, Police Commissioner) Raines.

Spears and his wife Estela Lopez have five children together, four of whom are girls. He is an avid sportsman, and he is also the founder of Henna, a production company specializing in spoken-word poetry and thought-provoking film.
