David Andrew Gregory was born in Fairbanks, Alaska, on August 19, 1985.  At an early age, he knew that he wanted to be an actor.  As a kid, he watched a lot of Jerry Lewis and Jimmy Stewart, and he aspired to be like them.  When he was eight years old, he entered a look-alike contest at the grand opening of a local video store, and as David puts it, won "hands down" for the comedy division after he dressed and acted like Jerry Lewis' character from the 1963 Paramount Pictures version of The Nutty Professor.  To be fair though, David light-heartedly admits that he was the only one in his category and had no one to compete against!  After his Jerry Lewis stint in elementary school, and a Huck Finn representation in high school, one summer he went to Interlochen Center for the Arts.  The experience at the summer arts camp left him feeling that he had no other choice; performing arts was a part of him, and he was meant to act.

 

In 2008, David graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Music Theatre from Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio.  During his college years, he had exposure to acting opportunities that he had not received anywhere else, and he really appreciates the insight that he has taken away from his mentors and teachers.


 

 

Other than his passion for acting, David also has a strong desire to one day reach out to young men who are

afflicted with a condition called Gynecomastia, which is

the occurrence of unnaturally large mammary glands, resulting in breast growth.  David personally experienced Gynecomastia in college, and although the condition can occur at any age, he understands how negatively it can affect the identity of young boys.  He was fortunate

enough to have his condition corrected through surgery,

but he knows that not all boys have the same outcome,

and if the problem is not corrected early enough, it can become inoperable. 

 

Currently, David lives in New York City with his two roommates.  During his free time, he works out at the gym, and he enjoys a good read.  Concerning his role on One Life to Live, he thanks his fans for their support, and he really appreciates their role in bringing his character back to the show.

Leading up to his role as Robert Ford on the soap opera One Life to Live, David endured seven months of no work.  In fact, because an out-of-work actor doesn’t get paid, he was ready to find a job so that he could make a living.  However, he got a call to audition for One Life to Live’s casting director, and although he didn’t feel the vibe afterward, he later got invited to read for producer Frank Valentini.  Before he even made it home, he got the call, and they had an answer for him:  Meet Robert Ford, everyone! 

 

David is also very fortunate to have a great family who supports his ambitions, and he credits them for where he is today.  The middle child of three boys (older brother, Wes, and younger brother, Stephen), it doesn’t take much thought to figure out what they did growing up in a place like Alaska where there is snow, snow, and MORE snow!  Check out the picture of David to the left doing what he still loves today!
