On The Young and the Restless, Kevin is raising his kids with Chloe and showing his brother Michael and Lauren support when he can. Off-screen, actor Greg Rikaart is busy celebrating a major milestone.

Happy Birthday, Greg Rikaart

That’s because he was born on February 26, 1977, in Brooklyn, New York, which means that this talented performer is turning 45 years old today. Rikaart’s career was jump-started by an appearance on the WB series Felicity, which was quickly followed by episodes of Strong Medicine, Gilmore Girls, Grounded for Life, That’s Life, and As If.

Between 2002 and 2003, he had a recurring role on the WB serial Dawson’s Creek and could be seen in the feature films Prey for Rock and Roll and X2, as well as the short Fake Stacy.

On July 11, 2003, Rikaart made his debut on the CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless as Kevin Fisher. He would air as a series regular until July 2017, though he would continue to appear sporadically until February 2018.

His work as Kevin would net Rikaart five Daytime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor and secure him one win, in 2005. Subsequent to his exit, he joined the cast of Days of our Lives where he played Leo Stark.

Rikaart returned to The Young and the Restless soon after the DAYS role ended, where he has remained ever since. Rikaart reprised Leo for the Peacock holiday movie Days of our Lives: A Very Salem Christmas. Now, he’s headed back to the main show, which airs on NBC. What kind of trouble will Leo be stirring up? Knowing Leo — plenty! Rikaart’s other program credits include guest roles on The Closer, CSI: Miami, Imaginary Bitches,  Bones, and four episodes of Major Crimes.
