Talent Watch: OLTL's David A. Gregory

David A. Gregory is a very pleasant addition to the canvas of one of my favourite daytime soaps, One Life To Live.. With charm and talent to spare, I found myself asking where he came from. Because there was next to nothing about David online, I had to do extensive research in order to compose the following biography of him. I've also posted a very tongue-in-cheek TV commercial that David did about a year ago for a product called Airborne. In it, he plays Sebastian (pictured above right), a muscular, shirtless romance novel hero-type. Check it out below...enjoy!

I also created this assemblage of pics of David, as Sebastian.

David A. Gregory Biography:

Birthdate: August 19th, 1985. David was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska.

During his teenage years, David was a standout performer on local stages, excelling in singing, dancing and acting. He appeared in productions for the Fairbanks Summer Fine Arts Camp, the North Star Ballet, the Fairbanks Light Opera Theatre, the Fairbanks Drama Association, the UAF Music Department, the Mo Holland Dance Studio, the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival, among others.

David graduated with a degree in music and theater from Ohio's Baldwin-Wallace College Music Theater Program in May 2008.

Stage, Film and Television credits:

David appeared in a production of “The Full Monty” presented by the American Musical Theatre of San Jose in September, 2008.

Also in 2008, David had a small role as a reformed gay prostitute in the NBC crime drama, Law & Order.

In August 2009, David made his daytime debut on the popular ABC drama, One Life To Live, playing reality TV producer, Ford.

David is currently filming an as yet to be titled James L. Brooks movie. The romantic comedy stars Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Jack Nicholson and Paul Rudd.

One of David's most recent roles was as Sebastian, a romance novel hero-type, in a TV commercial for Airborne. YouTube. When asked if he could ride a horse during the Airborne commercial auditions, he said, "Only a pony. At a state fair. I was 6." He was hired anyway and flew to Toronto on an afternoon's notice. The next day, he learned how to ride a horse.

Check out the amusing YouTube clip of a shirtless "Sebastian" riding, romping and reminding folks of why they need to use Airborne.
