One audition can change an actor’s life forever, and in the case of GENERAL HOSPITAL star Matt Cohen (Griffin), that was doubly true! Over a decade ago, not only did he land his first series role in SOUTH OF NOWHERE, but he also met a beautiful girl who would one day become his wife — Mandy Musgrave! “I don’t know if I’d be alive if I hadn’t found my wife,” Cohen confided to Soaps In Depth. “She’s taught me everything I know about enjoying love and life. She is my world. And we’re both the same kind of crazy — we’re both obsessive and overly passionate about everything we do. So that works out!”
While Cohen is now starring on GH, Musgrave has her own history in daytime, having originated the role of Chelsea Brady on DAYS OF OUR LIVES back in 2004. After her stint on the NBC soap, she landed the role of Ashley Davies on SOUTH OF NOWHERE and fell in love with her co-star, Cohen, who played Aiden Dennison. The pair were married in May of 2011 and in April of 2015, they welcomed their adorable son, Macklin, and created the perfect family.
“We have a better time, the three of us,” Cohen declared. “Macklin’s everything that’s right in the world, and we made him together. Now, Mandy and I appreciate each other as Mom and Dad as well as husband, wife, and best friends. I’m a lucky guy!”
