Tyler Christopher (born Tyler Christopher Baker; November 11, 1972)[1] is an American actor. He is best known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine (1996–1999, 2003–2011, 2013—) and Connor Bishop (2004–2005) on the ABC soap opera General Hospital.

Early life[edit]

Christopher was born in Joliet, Illinois and grew up in Delaware, Ohio,[2] the youngest of four children.[3] He is of Native American heritage, as his mother Jimi-Ann is Choctaw and his father Jim Baker is Seneca.[citation needed] About his Native American background, Christopher has said "I've been recognized within the Native American community in terms of entertainment. There's not a lot of us out there, not tons of competition. We are definitely a minority amongst a minority, but we're out there. Not everyone's Italian or Latin that has dark hair and dark eyes."[4]

He attended Ohio Wesleyan University for two years and then moved to Los Angeles.[5]

Personal life[edit]

Christopher was married to Eva Longoria from 2002 to 2004. He has also been linked to former General Hospital actress Vanessa Marcil.[6] From 2005 to 2007 he had an on again off again relationship with Natalia Livingston.[5] Christopher married Brienne Pedigo on September 27, 2008, and their son, Greysun James, was born on October 3, 2009.[7][8]
