Clifton dropped out of high school to become an actor. He landed the role of GH's Dillon at 18 and played the role from 2003-2007. Here are Dillon and Georgie (Lindze Letherman) in a 2004 scene.
From 2009-10, Clifton was on ONE LIFE TO LIVE. Here he is as Schuyler with Starr (Kristen Alderson) in 2009.
He joined B&B in 2010, as Bill’s (Don Diamont) son.
The actor met his future wife Nicole Lampson while his mom was teaching a developmental psychology class. “I came to drop off some papers for my mom’s class and she introduced me to the class and I ended up staying for a little bit,” he recalls. “I ended up sitting next to this girl named Nikki, who I thought was really special, and I asked my mom, ‘Who’s that Nikki girl?’” They tied the knot in 2012. Here's the happy couple at the Emmy nominee reception in April.
The couple's son Ford Robert was born on May 6, 2016. Clifton described his son as, "Quiet, curious, and beautiful like his mother [Nicole].”
When Clifton won the Emmy for Lead Actor in April, he became the first man to win in each of the three acting categories. He won for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series in 2011 and Outstanding Supporting Actor in 2013.
