On The Young and the Restless, Kyle Abbott is dealing with the news that he is the father of a 3-year-old boy. Off-screen, performer Michael Mealor is celebrating a different kind of major milestone.
Happy Birthday, Michael Mealor
That’s because he was born on February 29, 1992, in Atlanta, Georgia, which means that this talented actor is turning 29 years old! Mealor had always been interested in pursuing a career in the performing arts world but feared that the ambition was too lofty.
However, after being discovered by a modeling scout and being signed to the prestigious Wilhelmina agency, he was soon appearing in a special ad campaign for Coca Cola as well as becoming a favorite model for the Abercrombie and Fitch company.
A brief foray into college was followed by a permanent relocation to Los Angeles and an enrollment in acting classes. Shortly thereafter, he was hired for a role in the creature feature Indigenous.
Subsequently, Mealor appeared in bit parts on programs such as Chasing Life, Supergirl, and Roadies. In 2015, he could be seen in the short film Here Now and a year later he had a two-episode run in the series Fall into Me.
On March 29, 2018, Mealor joined the cast of the CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless in the contract role of Kyle Abbott. He has been with the top-rated soap ever since.
