Johnny Zacchara on the ABC Television Network's "General Hospital"
In October 2007, Brandon Barash joined the cast of "General Hospital" in the role of Johnny Zacchara, the brooding, rebellious son of a mob boss based in New York City who has come to Port Charles to wreak havoc on the town's residents. Johnny's tortured past makes him a wild card, but a select few have witnessed his softer side.
A graduate of the acclaimed theater program at the University of Southern California, Barash has quickly amassed an impressive list of television credits, including "Tell Me You Love Me," "NCIS," "24," "Gilmore Girls" and "The West Wing."
In addition, he was recently named the National Celebrity Ambassador for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. His efforts with the charity include auctioning off his photography and donating profits to MDA, speaking out on their behalf, and traveling across the country to meet with the MDA board members, donors and affected families. In addition, Barash has performed and co-hosted the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon.
Born in St. Louis and raised in California, Barash currently resides in Los Angeles. In his spare time, he likes to acquaint himself with nature, jumping out of airplanes and taking solo expeditions to Alaska. In addition, he enjoys photography, painting, singing, writing and listening to music, as well as playing the piano and harmonica. He's always up for a competitive game of baseball, basketball or racquetball, as well as for another favorite pastime... eating great food!
