Shemar Moore celebrates his birthday, check out his amazing photos here--->>
Today is a special day for the sweet, and talented actor Shemar Moore. Moore is well known for his roles as Malcolm Winters on 'The Young and the Restless' as well as Derek Morgan on 'Criminal Minds' and Hondo on 'S.W.A.T'.
Moore was born on April 20, 1970, in Oakland, California. He is the son of Marilyn Wilson, a business consultant, and Sherrod Moore. Moore's father is African American and his mother, who was born in Roxbury, Massachusetts, is of Irish and French-Canadian descent. His mother, who has a degree in Mathematics, worked as a teacher in Bahrain and Denmark. Moore moved with her to Denmark as an infant, and then to Bahrain when he was four, where he attended a British private school until the age of seven. His grandmother is from Quebec City, Quebec. Moore cites civil unrest, interracial relationships being taboo, and racism in the U.S. in the 1970s as part of the reason his mother moved abroad with him. Returning to the U.S. in 1977, the family moved to Chico, California, where his mother worked at a clinic, before later moving to Palo Alto. Moore graduated from Gunn High School in Palo Alto. He attended Santa Clara University, majoring in Communication, minoring in Theatre Arts, and modeled to pay his bills.
Throughout his run on television he's been a fan favorite, today he celebrates his 51st birthday and Soap Opera News wishes for him a day filled with lots of love, laughter, happiness and lifelong memories.
