Eric Martsolf was born on July 27, 1971 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He graduated from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania with a BA in Political Science with honors emphasizing in mass media politics and constitutional law. His time away from his studies was spent performing in unlimited capacities - choirs, operas, musicals, barbershop quartets and even a rock band which was proclaimed Harrisburg's best new band! The last two decades of Eric's career is nothing short of a testament to his versatility as an actor; successfully completing over 1,500 theatrical performances and 2,000+ television episodes.
These profound numbers stem from his 4-year comic portrayal of the Pharaoh in Andrew Lloyd Webber's, Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, in which he consistently drew in acclaimed reviews from the harshest of nationwide critics, calling him a "mix of Elvis and Stallone - a blend of charisma, muscular framework and a talent to be reckoned with". Eric is most widely recognized for his six-year popular portrayal of Ethan Winthrop on NBC's daytime drama, Passions, where he claimed numerous accolades from peers and fans alike. His most recent role came in 2008 when he joined the cast of NBC's daytime drama, Days of our Lives, as Brady Black.
Eric describes the birth of his professional career as "a choice he made in May 1993". The choice he refers to was whether to pursue his interests in the legal profession or the unstable world of entertainment.
His personal life has also been just as rewarding as his professional life. He married dance choreographer, Lisa Kouchak, on October 10, 2003 and together they have 8-year-old fraternal twin sons, Chase and Mason.
