On Days of our Lives, top cop Eli Grant has been shot and there is more than meets the eye. Will Lani Price Grant figure out who pulled the trigger? Off-screen, actor Lamon Archey is celebrating a major milestone.
Happy Birthday, Lamon Archey!
That’s because he was born on April 9, 1981, in Daly City, California, which means that this talented actor is turning 41 years old today! Following stints as both a carpenter and an emergency medical technician, Archey found himself “discovered” by a modeling scout while attending a job fair.
As his portfolio grew, Archey gained a manager who insisted that he enroll in acting classes. After two years of no success, Archey became disillusioned and had just about decided to give up when the opportunity to appear on Days of our Lives in an “under five” role arose.
In December 2012, he joined the cast of CBS’ The Young and the Restless in the role of Mason Wilder. After two years, Archey left to pursue other avenues. In 2016, he was selected to play Eli Grant a contract character on DAYS.
Archey’s other credit included guest appearances on episodes of Diary of a Champion, Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life, Roadies, and 2 Broke Girls. He also had roles in two television films – Dope Boys (which he narrated) and Can’t Buy My Love – as well as the feature The Woman in the Red Dress.
Archey has been engaged since 2010 to model and actress Mercedes Cornett, whom he met at a fashion show in 2003. Together they share a son Caden (born July 9, 2009), and a daughter Gaia (born May 29, 2012). Archey also has another son Machiah from a previous relationship.
