General Hospital’s Martin Gray may not have much to celebrate – considering the fact that he agreed to represent the devious Nelle Benson in her upcoming custody trial – but the same can’t be said for his portrayer, Michael E Knight.
Happy Birthday, Michael E Knight
That’s because he was born on May 7, 1959, in Princeton, New Jersey, which means that this talented actor is turning 61 years old today! Knight began his career with the role of Tad “The Cad” Martin on ABC’s All My Children.
His initial stint lasted between 1982 and 1986, and which point he left in order to pursue work in both primetime and feature films. He went on to appear in one movie, Date With An Angel, and guest star in episodes of Matlock and Murder, She Wrote.
He returned to All My Children for two further stints. The first between 1988 and 1990 and the second between 1992 and the soaps concluding episode in 2011.
Knight’s other screen credits include episodes of Dear John, Grapevine, Hot in Cleveland and NCIS, and the made-for-television film She Stood Alone: The Tailhook Scandal. He also starred in the off-Broadway play Cakewalk opposite Linda Lavin.
He paid daytime TV a return visit in 2015 when he briefly joined the cast of The Young and the Restless in the role of Dr. Simon Neville, who helped Hilary Curtis come of her coma. He also struck up a friendship with Eileen Davidson’s Ashley. He has recurred on ABC’s General Hospital as lawyer Martin Gray since 2019, reunited him with several All My Children former co-stars, including James Patrick Stuart.
Knight was married to former Capitol and One Life to Live star Catherine Hickland from 1992 to 2006. Soap Hub would like to wish Michael E. Knight a very happy birthday and many more. General Hospital airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
