At A Glance

Daytime fans remember Lau from his popular roles as All My Children's Greg Nelson, which he played from 1981 to 1986, and Another World's Jamie Frame, which he left in 1990.

In addition to his daytime success, Lau has guest starred on numerous television series such as Frasier, Martial Law, Diagnosis Murder and Jag. He also starred in the films Finders Keepers, Dare, Fortune Seller and Return to the Secret Garden.

Lau was born in Long Beach, California and raised in Lake Oswego, Oregon. He began his college years at Columbia University and then transferred to Utah's Brigham Young University, where he decided on a career in theater. A move to Hollywood resulted in many television series guest appearances before Lau landed his All My Children role.

Lau enjoys jogging, skiing and horseback riding. He also holds a first-degree black belt in karate. He resides in New York City.
