Last week, 'Days of Our Lives' fans welcomed Lamon Archey in the role of Eli Grant, Valerie's [Vanessa A. Williams] son. But, how well do you know Archey as an actor?
Lamon Archey was born on April 9, 1981. He is an American actor and model. Archey is best known for his role as Mason Wilder on The Young and the Restless. He was raised in San Mateo, California by his grandparents. He is an only child and while Archey does have a relationship with his mom, she moved around quite often. After high school, Archey worked as a carpenter installing floors for two years. He then moved to Los Angeles with his uncle. Upon birth, Archey's mother had given him a different name but his grandfather felt it sounded like a girl's name so it was changed to Lamon. If you observe closley you will realize that he has 10 tattoos.
As he began living in Los Angeles, he embarked on his modeling journey. He started modeling after he was scouted at a job fair. His acting began as he received advise by manager Michael Bruno to get into acting classes so he could get a gig on a soap. After about two years of acting classes with no results, Archey was ready to give up when he booked two under-five roles on Days of Our Lives.[ In December 2012, Archey was cast in the recurring role of Mason Wilder on The Young and the Restless. Archey vacated the role in early 2014. But acting was not finished for him - it was in December 2016 that it was announced that Archey had joined the cast of Days and officially made his debut this month on the NBC daytime sudser.
Since 2010, Archey has been engaged to model Mercedes Cornett, together they have two children; a son and a daughter. He also has an older son from a previous relationship. His list of acting credits also include; Let's Get Laid!, Diary of a Champion, The B Word, Roadies, 2 Broke Girls, Dope Boy and more!
