General Hospital’s Michael Quartermaine Corinthos lost the (latest) love of his life when Sasha instigated a fake affair and he came out the other side married to Willow Tait and granted full custody of his toddler son – a win, win if there ever was one. And actor Chad Duell is also winning thanks to the very special milestone he’s reached.
Happy Birthday, Chad Duell
And that’s because he was born on September 14, 1987, in Chicago, Illinois, which means that this fan-favorite is turning 33 years old today! Duell, attended Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale, Arizona before deciding that he needed to leave for California in order to pursue an acting career.
After relocating to Los Angeles, Duell landed two (minor) recurring roles on Disney Channel-produced sitcoms: Ronald Longcape Jr. (Wizards of Waverly Place) and Holden (The Suite Life on Deck).
In 2010, Duell succeeded Drew Garrett in the role of GH’s Michael Quartermaine Corinthos. For his efforts, Duell has earned five Daytime Emmy Award nominations and scored one win – 2015’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series after Michael learned his adoptive father murdered his biological father in cold blood.
Duell’s other acting credits consist of a regular role on the third season of the online serial The Bay, guest appearances on Arrow and The Agency, and a cameo part in the made-for-TV thriller Lethal Admirer.
In his personal life, Duell pursues a strict fitness regime and he practices martial arts daily. He has been romantically linked to fellow soap star Courtney Hope (ex-Sally Spectra, The Bold and the Beautiful, soon to be on The Young and the Restless) since 2016.
