Vincent Irizarry


Vincent Irizarry was most likely born with a passion for the arts. He began studying photography and piano at age 11, and was then classically trained at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Vincent there fell in love with acting while performing in productions orchestrated by a regional theatre company, and then moved to New York to become a professional actor, and he soon won a full-time scholarship with the late Lee Strasburg. Vincent won his first daytime role on Guiding Light, and later went on to star in Santa Barbara. He made guest appearances on popular primetime shows L.A. Law, Beverly Hills, 90210, and Murder, She Wrote. In 1997, Vincent joined the cast of All My Children in what was supposed to be a short-term role, as the manipulative and vindictive Dr. David Hayward. However, due to the character's extreme popularity, Vincent returned in 1998. In 2006, Vincent was written off the show and ended up on The Young and the Restless portraying David Chow for little over a year. Vincent eventually returned to All My Children in 2008 and won his first Daytime Emmy for the character of David Hayward in 2009.

Vincent Irizarry Quotes
"How could I act like just accepting Christ makes it a done deal? I fall short all of the time. I'm constantly being willful. There are days when I'm impatient with others, overly demanding or over critical of others. Arrogance, yes, also. It's a process, and God knows exactly how to do it. And I have to lean on Him entirely to do it."

"I do see the value in a character that's multi-dimensional.... You see his capacity to love passionately and to be selfless as a person. It's exciting to see the potential of that in a so-called villain, and that's what the audience responds to."

"Oh, brother. It's like every villain's dream to be handed an award from your two latest victims. First, I want to thank my lord and savior, Jesus Christ. His faithfulness remains even when mine often wanes. To Him be all the glory. I want to thank Lynn Leahey, Soap Opera Digest, for this honor; the fans, for years and years of support and heartfelt - just such graciousness."
