Kin Shriner (born December 6, 1953) is an American actor, best known for playing Scott Baldwin on both daytime serials General Hospital (1977-1993, 2000-2004, 2007-2008, 2013-) and Port Charles (1997-2000, 2001).

Personal life

Shriner was born in New York, New York, the twin brother of fellow actor, Wil Shriner. Kin is the elder by six minutes. Their father was humorist and television host Herb Shriner. While he was in high school, both of Shriner's parents died in a car crash. He and his brother Wil then moved to Texas, where they were raised by their grandmother.[1] Since leaving GH, when not acting, Shriner resides in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he has an apartment in a boathouse, and where his brother Wil also lives.[2]

Acting career

After once working as a door-to-door Fuller Brush salesman,[1] Shriner began to appear on GH as Scotty Baldwin. He would play the role in four decades and say that the role has "been a part of his entire adult life."[2] Shriner joined the cast of As the World Turns as Julia Larrabee (Sarah Brown)'s brother Keith Morrissey from February 2005 to January 2006.[2] His role drew favourable reviews, though his character wasn't well received by most fans of the show as he broke up popular couple, Holden Snyder (Jon Hensley) and Lily Walsh Snyder (Martha Byrne). Shriner called the ATWT role, "The most fun I've had in a long time."[2] He has had recurring guest-starring roles on Baa Baa Black Sheep, Full House, and Justice League Unlimited.
