Eddie Cibrian, born June 18, 1973 in Burbank, California, is an actor of Cuban descent.
Eddie Cibrian was raised in the San Fernando Valley. He is an only child. He became interested in acting at the age of 13 when he found out that a fellow classmate had broken into the business doing commercials.
After discussing it with his parents, Eddie landed an agent and booked seven commercials over the next two years, landing a national Coca-Cola commercial on his very first audition. While he enjoyed the work, the auditions prevented him from participating in school sports. A natural athlete, Eddie decided to put his acting career on hold in favour of joining the high school football team.
After graduating from Montclair High School, Eddie enrolled as a Business/Economics major at UCLA and took on a part-time job to make ends meet. However, he missed the challenge and excitement of working in the entertainment industry, and shortly afterwards decided to give acting another shot. He quickly signed with an agent and began working almost immediately, his first work being a starring role in Malcolm-Jamal Warner's Emmy Award-winning television special, Kids Killing Kids.
From there it was on to daytime television where Cibrian starred for three years as Matt Clark on The Young and the Restless. His other daytime credits include a featured role on The Bold and the Beautiful. In addition, he appeared in multiple episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210 as well as on NBC's Saved by the Bell: The College Years. He also gained a starring role in Baywatch Nights as Griff Walker, alongside David Hasslehoff.
Eddie was also in the cast of Sunset Beach as Cole Deschanel, the handsome jewel thief and grandson of town founder Armando Deschanel. Eddie has starred in TV movies, The Hitman, Logan's War - Bound By Honour, and also his feature film debut in Living Out Loud, released in the US on November 6th 1998. In Living Out Loud, he plays a masseur and his scenes are said to be extremely hot! Eddie has also starred in the 1999 feature But I'm A Cheerleader with RuPaul, in which he plays the part of a gay man. His other other acting credits include Third Watch, Tilt, and NBC's Invasion.
In his spare time, he enjoys playing golf, football, tennis, basketball, baseball, and volleyball. He also is an avid skier and motorcyclist! He is involved in a number of charitable organizations, including the Make a Wish Foundation, the American Paralysis Association, and Stitches, a group in South Central Los Angeles that provides kids with an alternative to gangs.
