Tyler Returns to TV!Tyler Returns to TV!
Well, he's not coming back to GH, but for fans of Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas), it's the next best thing. Just seven months after leaving the soap, he makes his prime time debut on Monday, January 17, when he guest stars on the hit CBS drama FAMILY LAW.
The In-Depth Story:
"I play a college football player who's been indicted for [illegally] using handicapped placards on campus -- it was a great opportunity for me," the actor explains. "I wanted to move on and do other things, and now I'm getting to do that."This was a busy year for the Daytime Emmy nominee. His first film, Catfish in Black Bean Sauce, took the top honor at the 1999 Houston International Film Festival, and favorable buzz also was bestowed upon The Gift, the short produced by Tanya Boyd (ex-Celeste, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) and starring Christopher as a blind sculptor.Having most recently performed in the Los Angeles-based play, Starfire, with good friend and former GH cast mate Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda), Christopher says that he's getting a handle on what he want for his future in the entertainment industry. Unfortunately for GH viewers, a return to daytime doesn't appear to be in the cards."I think I'm at the point where I'm pretty confident about where I'm going and where I want to be in my life," he explains. "Not to say that because of that I would ever not consider going back -- I do miss it -- but it's not where I want to be right now.
