Biography

Barely in his thirties when he became one of President Bill Clinton's most trusted advisors, George Stephanopoulos' youth made him a pop culture favorite for both politicos and media fans, alike, but the stress of working in the administration left him so burned out that he resigned after Clinton's first term, only to reinvent himself a year later as a political analyst for ABC News. He eventually worked his way up to becoming co-anchor of morning news perennial "Good Morning America" (ABC, 1975- ). The son of a Greek Orthodox priest, Stephanopoulos considered following in his father's footsteps before finding his niche in politics, and the contrast between Stephanopoulos' idealism and the moral ambiguity of Clinton and Washington, D.C. inspired a number of Stephanopoulos-inspired figures in films such as in Rob Reiner's "The American President" (1995), Mike Nichols' "Primary Colors" (1998), and NBC's television drama "The West Wing" (1999-2006). After leaving the White House, he reemerged on ABC as a political correspondent for "World News Tonight" (1953- ), the Sunday morning political discussion show "This Week" (1996- ), and, of course, "Good Morning America," where viewers were won over by his easygoing charm and thoughtful intelligence.
