Jay Kenneth Johnson
A native of Springfield, Missouri, Johnson knew while he was growing up that he either wanted to be an actor or a professional athlete, but once he attended college at Southwest Missouri State where he majored in Business and Theatre, Johnson knew acting would be his future.
Prior to relocating to Los Angeles, Johnson appeared in a few commercials and then tried his hand at modeling before landing the role of Brendan on The Young and the Restless.
Johnson currently lives in Los Angeles but he keeps in close contact with his younger siblings Jeff and Jenna. In his spare time he enjoys reading, Rollerblading, beach-going, sports, and music. He is the lead singer for the rock group, Solid Jones.
