It’s been a while since Dr. Griffin Monroe left behind the drama at General Hospital, and fans are thrilled that actor Matt Cohen recently teased his return. He has something else thrilling happening today — his birthday.

Happy Birthday Matt Cohen

Cohen celebrates a very special milestone today, his 40th birthday. The actor was born on September 28, 1982. He is a native of Miami, Florida, and he played football and ran track in high school. After that, he went to college at Florida State University, where he studied business, but during his time in the classroom, he also took some theater classes and the acting bug bit. He moved to Los Angeles after graduating to pursue a career in entertainment.

After a stint on Supernatural as Young John Winchester/Michael, Cohen landed the role of Father/Dr. Griffin Munroe on General Hospital, and he stayed in the role from 2016 to 2019. However, in September 2022, Cohen posted something on Instagram that gave fans hope that he’d be returning to the good guy role in Port Charles very soon. If not, perhaps he’ll be involved with the soap in another capacity.

Cohen’s other television acting credits include South of Nowhere (Aiden Dennison), 90210 (Jeremy), How to Get Away With Murder (Levi Wescott), Kings of Con (Matt Cochran), and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders (Ryan Garrett). The soap star also acted in television movies His Secret Marriage and Holiday Date.

In 2011, Cohen married his South of Nowhere co-star Mandy Musgrave. The couple welcomed a son, Macklin, in 2015.
