Days of Our Lives actor, Josh Taylor (Roman Brady) is celebrating his 79th birthday today.
He was born, Tommy Tim Taylor on September 25, 1943, in Princeton, Illinois. He was often called "Timmy". Taylor moved with his family to Chillicothe, Illinois when he was two years old. His dad (George Taylor) became athletic director of Chillicothe Township High School which is now called Illinois Valley Central High School as well as a respected football coach, and both Josh and older brother Ron played quarterback under him. Heavily recruited for his football skills, Josh chose Dartmouth College, where he was a member of two Ivy Championship teams and graduated with a bachelor's degree in sociology. He then received a full scholarship to the University of Denver law school, where he earned his Juris Doctor degree. After earning his law degree, he moved to the West Coast.
Taylor is now an American actor. He is best known for playing the roles of Chris Kositchek which he originated in 1977 and Roman Brady on the American dramatic serial Days of Our Lives, Jack McKay on the teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210 and as Michael Hogan, the father figure on NBC's situation comedy The Hogan Family.
After earning his Juris Doctor, Taylor made the decision to take a year off and work on the Alaska Pipeline. On the way to Alaska he stopped in Los Angeles to visit friends and was offered a job as manager of the Westwood Village Bratskeller. He spent a year and a half at the restaurant which catered to celebrities and, surrounded by actors and producers, decided to give up a future in law to pursue acting. After the Bratskeller closed, he worked as a bartender at the Riverside Lounge in Santa Monica until he snagged his first acting role playing a contemporary cowboy on an episode of Barnaby Jones in 1976. This was quickly followed with roles on The Six Million Dollar Man and The Hardy Boys and much more.
He has been married to Lisa Tremblay since 1999 and has two children; Jason and Tristen Taylor. Happy birthday Josh Taylor!
