Bradford Anderson is celebrating his 40th birthday today.
Bradford William Anderson was born on September 21, 1979, to parents; Bill Anderson and Noni Smith in Meredith, New Hampshire. His mother, who worked at local theater companies, encouraged both him and his sister, Jennifer, to get involved in acting.
Anderson's first acting experience was at the tender age of 6, playing Tiny Tim in a professional production by the Laconia Street Car Company of "A Christmas Carol". He has also worked at Mames Restaurant for a few summers.
As a junior at Inter-Lakes High School, he landed a part in a local production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which involved his spending time at a Summer Theater camp with many much older actors. He decided he liked the acting life and began studying drama in earnest. Anderson graduated in 1998, and was voted in the high school yearbook as "Best Singer", "Most dramatic", and "Most likely to succeed." He attended the Tisch School of Performing Arts at New York University, and while with the Philadelphia Theater Company, won an award as Best Supporting Actor for his role as Billy in Edward Albee's The Goat...Or Who Is Sylvia?
In mid-2005, he moved to Los Angeles, where he obtained a recurring part on Veronica Mars and began performing in other television shows as well. It was in September 2006 that he landed the part of Damien Spinelli on General Hospital. The role was initially just meant to be played on a recurring basis, but the character proved so popular that Anderson was offered a multi-year contract, which was signed in May 2007. He now appears on the show on and off and earned himself 5 Daytime Award Nominations in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
Bradford has done some work with charities including the Manchester Animal Shelter in his home state of New Hampshire. He also returned to his hometown Meredith, to give a speech at Inter-Lakes High School's graduation for the class of '08. Anderson also plays in the rock group "Port Chuck" along with General Hospital co-stars Steve Burton (Jason Morgan), Scott Reeves (ex-Steven Webber), and Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny Zacharra). He also host a podcast with Burton.
He married Kiera Mickiewicz in April 2010. The couple have two children, daughters Juna Meredith Anderson born on July 18, 2011 and Finola Leo Anderson born on May 2, 2014.
