Daytimes 60 Most Beautiful PeopleDaytime's 60 Most Beautiful People
Daytime's 60 most beautiful peopleHe may have a new surname, but GH's Tyler Christopher (Nikolas), formerly known as Tyler Baker, is still a throwback to the chivalrous days of yesteryear. Christopher is the kind of guy who will give you more than the shirt off his back to those he cares about. When his fiance, Vanessa Marcil (Brenda), was hobbling around the studio on crutches recently (after hurting her ankle while filming a commercial), Christopher provided piggyback service so Marcil wouldn't have to put pressure on her injured joint. "I have an old-fashioned way of treating people. It comes from the fact that I grew up in a small town in Ohio." notes Christopher, who believes that folks from La-La Land and those who've been subjected to Hollywood are more likely to lose their civility.
But Christopher vows he won't lose his Midwestern values. "I think what people find beautiful about me is my kindness towards them and my unselfish attitude," he says. Of her future husband, and possible on-air love interest Marcil adds, "The most beautiful thing about Tyler is his simplicity, his sensitivity and how unaware he is of how brilliantly talented he is."--M.J.M.
