On The Young and the Restless, he’s a troublemaker who appears to always be looking for his place in the Newman family. In the real world, Mark Grossman is a laidback thespian who is celebrating a major milestone.
Happy Birthday, Mark Grossman
That’s because he was born on February 3, 1987, in Columbia, Maryland, which means that this talented actor turns 36 years old today! Despite playing the eponymous monster in his middle school’s production of Beauty and the Beast, Grossman had no real desire to be a performer.
Instead, he wanted to be a motor cross racer, and he did compete in the sport, for a time, at the semi-pro level. However, he eventually turned his talents to selling insurance over the phone and, much later, modeling.
Photo assignments eventually led to acting roles. Initially, Grossman was offered only short films — Choices Made, The Snow Globe, Maybe Tomorrow, and The Stranger to name but a few — but he eventually found himself cast in features such as ABCs of Death 2, Silent Hill: Internal Prison, Entourage, and Break-Up Nightmare.
He also appeared in a number of made-for-television movies, usually cast as the villain. Among the many are The Other Wife, Stalked By My Doctor: The Return, Double Mommy, and Babysitter’s Nightmare.
Grossman also found work on television programs like Hustle and Famous In Love. In 2019, he was hired to take over the role of The Young and the Restless’ much-recast Adam Newman.
