Teddy Sears Quotes
Dumb luck brought on the move from business to acting. I had moved to New York when I was 23, in the year 2000. On a lark, I went to audition for a soap opera. I thought, 'Hey, this will be a really fun story to tell my grandkids one day, that I auditioned for a soap!'

For the most part, I don't have a Facebook page; I don't Twitter.
I did almost two years on 'One Life to Live,' so I was thinking, 'Oh yeah, I'm an actor now.'
I prize being just a normal dude that wakes up, goes to work, comes home to his wife - like, quite boring.
It's a strange thing we do as actors. I'm walking out the door, and I'll say, 'O.K., honey, I'm off to take my clothes off.'
