Hallmark Actor: Michael Rady

Margaret Minnicks has been an online writer for many years. She writes about various topics including celebrities and entertainment.


Michael Rady was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on August 20, 2081. He knew he wanted to become an actor at an early age. After he graduated from high school, he enrolled in the theater program at Temple University in Philadelphia.

Acting Career

Rady's first role as an actor was huge. He began his acting career in 2005 when he starred in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants as Kostas Dounas. He acted alongside stars like Alexis Bledel and Blake Lively, among seasoned actors. Rady was also in the sequel of the movie three years later. Michael received commendations from critics and the public as well as getting nominations at the Teen Choice Awards of 2005. Most actors don't receive that type of notoriety in their very first movie, but Rady was the exception.

In 2006, Rady had a role in Sleeper Cell. Later that same year, he was a guest on both ER and CSI: NY before joining the cast of Swingtown for 13 episodes. In 2008 and 2009, the hard-working actor performed in 14 episodes in ABC's Greek.

Over the years, Michael Rady has other roles in The Resident, The Mentalist, Castle, Jane the Virgin as well as House of Lies, Emily Owens M.D., Intelligence, and in the 2018 series Timeless.

It is not uncommon for actors to work to be seen on more than one network at the same time. Sometimes, they are in a movie and on a soap opera or some other series. That's exactly what is going on with Michael Rady. Currently, Rady's fans can see him in prime-time in the role of Dr. Matt Cooper as a cardiologist at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center on Dick Wolf's popular NBC medical drama Chicago Med.

Michael had racked up many movie credits before he performed in his first Hallmark movie in 2015.
