Michael E. Knight (born May 7, 1959) is an American actor.



Knight is best known for playing Tad Martin on the soap opera All My Children. His first stint on the show ran from 1982-1986. He returned from 1988–1990 and again from 1992–present. Knight also appeared as Ted Orsini on AMC from 1993-1994.[1]

His reason for leaving the show was to pursue acting projects on the West Coast, which included a starring role in the feature film Date with an Angel, and various primetime appearances — including Murder, She Wrote, Dear John and Grapevine. Knight co-starred in the off-Broadway play Wrong Turn at Lungfish, and he appeared in the ABC movie for television She Stood Alone: The Tailhook Scandal, and in the off-Broadway Cakewalk with Linda Lavin.

Knight was born in Princeton, New Jersey. He was educated at The Thacher School in Ojai, California, and attended Wesleyan University, graduating in 1980, a year ahead of schedule.

Knight was honored with two Daytime Emmy Awards for 'Outstanding Younger Leading Actor' (1986 and 1987). In 2001, he was honored with his third Daytime Emmy Award. He also received the 1997 Soap Opera Digest Award for 'Best Supporting Actor' and a nomination in the same category in 1998. In 2005, he was nominated for an Emmy for 'Outstanding Leading Actor'.

In his personal life, Knight was married from June 27, 1992-2006 to One Life to Live star Catherine Hickland.

The couple was honored for their charitable work by the West End Intergenerational Residence in Manhattan in 1999.

Oddly enough, Hickland's ex-husband was David Hasselhoff who was known for playing the character Michael Knight on the hit 1980s television show Knight Rider.
