Gregory Harrison (General Hospital) celebrates his birthday. Learn more about him here--->>
Veteran actor, director, and producer Gregory Harrison became a household name (and face) when he was cast in the celebrated role of Dr. George Alonzo 'Gonzo' Gates in the 80s medical drama hit series Trapper John, M.D.
Gregory Neale Harrison was born on May 31, 1950, in Avalon, California. He is the middle child of Ed Harrison, a ship's captain and poet, and Donna Lee Nagely, an aspiring dancer; they eventually divorced. He has an older sister, Kathleen (born 1948), and a younger brother, Christopher (born 1961). He served for two years in the United States Army during the Vietnam War era as a medic and now turns 72.
For well over four decades and with over one hundred acting credits (and counting), Harrison has amassed an incredible acting resume including work in television series such as Falcon Crest, Dark Skies, Judging Amy, One Tree Hill, Rizzoli, and Isles, and Chesapeake Shores. On stage, he has performed in the production Chicago, the Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim's Follies, and the original Broadway production of Kander & Ebb's musical Steel Pier.
Harrison has also starred in countless television movies, most recently starring in the Hallmark Channel expansion films of Signed, Sealed, and Delivered. And to the delight of soap fans, he landed the role of Gregory Chase on General Hospital and has recurred on the soap since 2020.
Happy Birthday, Gregory Harrison!
