Greg Wrangler took over the role of Pierce Riley on All My Children in April 1996.
Wrangler was born in Tarrytown, New York, and grew up in Croton-on-Hudson. He went on to graduate from Long Island University and then headed to Hollywood, California, in order to pursue an acting career.
A one-time New York bicycle messenger, Wrangler landed his first professional role appearing in a camera commercial with Bruce Jenner. Since then, he has appeared in the following daytime series: Edge of Night, Search For Tomorrow, Guiding Light, as Ron Deacon on The Bold and the Beautiful, and as Steve Connelly on The Young and the Restless.
In his spare time, Wrangler enjoys hang gliding, downhill skiing, kickboxing and golf. He also enjoys carpentry and woodworking.
Greg's part on AMC came to an end in August 1996 when Pierce left Pine Valley to teach in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The reason for the departure was said to be fan disapproval of Pierce and Brooke's relationship.
