Think again, The Young and the Restless fans!

Here is some Thad trivia:

  • Though he was named after a Thaddeus, Luckinbill's name is just Thad.
  • The actor is friends with Brian Presley (formerly of Port Charles), who he knows from the University of Oklahoma.
  • He's distantly related to Lucie Arnaz's husband, actor Laurence Luckinbill. Laurence Luckinbill was once married to Robin Strasser (Dorian, One Life to Live), and has two sons with her, Benjamin and Nicholas.

Luckinbill once told Soap Opera Digest:

"Growing up, all the girls went for [bad boys]. It's not fair. I think it's the danger element. There's an excitement level about those guys, whereas us nice guys can be labeled boring. But I think in the end, we win out."
