Best wishes to GENERAL HOSPITAL star Matt Cohen (Griffin), who is celebrating his birthday today! The actor got his big break starring as Aiden Dennison in the TV series SOUTH OF NOWHERE, and later appeared as Syd King on ROCKVILLE, CA, a WB web series created by THE O.C.’s Josh Schwartz. Cohen has also had recurring roles on SUPERNATURAL (as young John Winchester), 90210 (as Jeremy), HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER (as Levi Sutter), and CRIMINAL MINDS: BEYOND BORDERS (as Ryan Garrett).
Cohen joined the cast of GH as Dr. Griffin Monroe in February of 2016, and it was soon revealed that the sexy doc was also a Roman Catholic priest! But despite the fact that Griffin is the previously-unknown son of legacy character Duke Lavery, the guy didn't much in the way of front burner storylines. Griffin thought he was Charlotte’s father, but that turned out to be a lie, and despite being one of the hottest doctors at General Hospital, it was quite a while until he got involved in a steamy romance! (Not that Ava was really the best choice for the former priest...) However, in real life, Cohen married his SOUTH OF NOWHERE co-star, Mandy Musgrave, in 2011, and they welcomed a beautiful baby boy, Macklin, in 2015.
Check out these beautiful family photos of Cohen, his wife, and their adorable son in the gallery below!
