Jeff Branson Bio

(Ronan, Y&R)


the 411

BIRTHPLACE: St. Louis, Missouri

Jeff Branson is not one of those actors who was born with a burning desire to perform. Rather, he stumbled into what would become his profession when he got a tip that the acting teacher at his high school didn't have a problem with students sleeping through class. One day, however, he managed to remain awake, and a new life course was born.

An only child, Branson credits his mother with instilling in him the self-confidence it takes to navigate the uncertain waters of professional acting. "She had the intention of having one child for a reason, because she wanted to put everything she had into one child," he says. "She's a champion, a selfless champion."
