Bradley, who was born in Southern California, attended Pepperdine University, where he played baseball until an injury put his dreams of playing professionally on hold. Bradley then turned to a career in acting. Following his college graduation, he traveled to France and fell in love with the country's breathtaking beauty and rich history. He has spent much of his adult life living in France and England.
A veteran of both movies and television in the United States and abroad, Bradley has appeared in the international soap opera Riviera. His film credits include the made-for-television movies Jewels and The Sun Also Rises, as well as the feature films Sweet Revenge, Touch and Die, and 5 Days in June.
His theater credits include Killer Joe at the Frankfurt English Theater, and Lone Star and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, both at Gallerie 55, the Paris English Theater.
Having written songs and played guitar as part of an amateur rock group in Europe, Bradley released an album entitled Tonite, a collection of songs inspired by the music of the 1960s. The album was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee.
Bradley, who enjoys horseback riding and playing the guitar, relocated to the Los Angeles area after the conclusion of Guiding Light. His birthday is February 11.
