Description   [from Freebase]

Colin Egglesfield (born February 9, 1973) is an American actor. He is best known for his portrayal as Josh Madden in the long-running soap opera All My Children, as well as Auggie Kirkpatrick in The CW's short-lived teen drama Melrose Place. Egglesfield was born in Farmington Hills, Michigan, the second child of Kathleen (née Dineen) and William Egglesfield, a physician. His mother is Irish. He has two siblings: an older sister, Kerry, and a younger brother, Sean. He was brought up in a Catholic household. Egglesfield spent his early childhood in the Metro Detroit area. At the age of ten, he and his family moved to Crete, Illinois, a small community south of Chicago. Growing up, he was more studious than rambunctious, preferring to spend Friday nights alone building model airplanes. His dream was to follow his father's footsteps as a physician, but became interested in acting watching his older sister Kerry perform. Shy in his adolescent years, he credits his prep football coach with helping gain a positive self-esteem. Egglesfield graduated from Marian Catholic High School in Chicago Heights and went on to the University of Iowa's pre-med program.
