Young portrayed Rick Forrester on the CBS soap The Bold and the Beautiful from December 31, 1997 to September 15, 1999. He was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award as Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series in 1999. Young later portrayed Lucky Spencer on General Hospital for three years from February 25 2000 until February 10 2003. In 2002, he was named "Sexiest Soap Star" by People magazine, and won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actor. Even though he does not appear to be a large guy, he is very muscular and well-toned, having been a wrestler in high school. In an interview some years ago, he admitted that he purposely wore a loose-fitting shirt to his GH audition so he wouldn't look too muscular. He was replacing Jonathan Jackson, who was quite thin.
Young and Steward are expecting their first child. The baby boy is due in November, and they will name the child Luke Wayne Young. Luke is a biblical name they picked due to its strong reference. Young's middle name, which was given to him by his mother for her love of Wayne Newton, was the second name chosen for the child.
