With his curly brown hair, baby blue eyes, muscular physique and winning smile, Grayson McCouch won the hearts of daytime fans playing the dashing Dr. Morgan Winthrop for three years (1993-96) on the NBC daytime soap "Another World". Born in NYC and raised in Chappaqua, he began developing an interest in acting while a high school student. McCouch made his professional acting debut with the Williamstown Theatre Festival while still in college and later studied for a time at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford. After appearing with the Almeida Theatre and the Royal Court in London, McCouch returned to the USA and quickly landed his daytime gig. Moving to L.A. in late 1996, he soon found employment as a guest on a proposed spin-off from the ABC sitcom "Sibs" and as a poor college student living in a basement in an episode of "Beverly Hills, 90210". In 1998, the handsome actor was cast as the eldest son of a tobacco farming family in the UPN primetime soap "Legacy".
