American television has existed for so long that several talents have come and gone, particularly in Daytime television where soap operas reign as king. The amount of talent that has existed and passed through the less popular half of American television is admirable, to say the least. This includes Greg Evigan who is known for his role on the soap opera, General Hospital.
Greg Evigan is particularly unique as a daytime television actor because he is one of the few who has made a substantial appearance in both daytime programs and primetime shows. His filmography has credits across both major halves of American television like the aforementioned General Hospital, as well as CSI: Miami, The Finder and many more.
