Raised in rural West Texas, Brad Maule attended Stephen F. Austin University,
graduating cum laude with a B.F.A. in theater and English. The actor, who grew
up on a farm, was educated at one of the last remaining country schools (which
had an enrollment of 150 students in 12 grades).
Soon after he journeyed to Los Angeles to get into the acting profession, Brad
was cast in many productions. At the Westwood Playhouse, he starred in Billy
Barnes' musical revue, Movie Star, for seven months. He portrayed Hamlet in
Somethin's Rockin' in Denmark at the Odyssey Theater Ensemble in Los Angeles.
In 1983, he won the DramaLogue Award for his performance in the two-character
musical, Stephen Sondheim's Marry Me a Little.
In addition to his 14 years on General Hospital and numerous other guest-starring
roles, Brad is also a popular talk-show co-host, having shared the duties on A.M.
Los Angeles, Home, and Live! With Regis & Kathie Lee, among others.
Brad is also a writer and performer of country music. His first album, called
Livin' It Up, received popular acclaim; and he now has another CD/video on
the market, titled Chameleon. Most recently, Brad performed two songs, one
of which he wrote, on The Music of General Hospital, which was released this
Throughout his career, Brad has found time to contribute to his community. He
co-hosted the annual West Texas Rehabilitation Telethon in Abilene, Texas,
which helps raise more than a million dollars each year for the victims of
stroke, heart disease, and other medical problems requiring physical therapy.
Brad's own brother was a patient at the West Texas Rehabilitation Center. Brad
has also endowed scholarships for students of theater at both Stephen F. Austin
University and his high school in Snyder, Texas.
In his spare time, Brad and his family enjoy an outdoor lifestyle. For
relaxation, he likes to paint abstracts in acrylics and charcoal. He and his
wife, Laverne, live in Los Angeles with their two sons and a daughter:
Michael Benjamin, Hunter Nix and Lily Alexandra Nix.
