Tristan Rogers

entered the entertainment industry in the 1960's, in his native Australia, working as a stuntman and doubling as a boom carrier. His ambition and eagerness had him volunteering for any work that kept him on the lot and in clear view. Before long he landed a role as a series regular on "The Link Men." When production ended after only 10 episodes, he headed for England, where he became a drugger in a rock band. After three years of what he calls "intense experiences" and witnessing the greatest music ever, he decided to give up the musicians life and do what he really wanted to do: act.

Back in Australian in 1972, Tristan found himself working in everything from television to radio for the next seven years, then decided it was time to move again, this time to California.

In 1980, Tristan was given a role on "General Hospital," and it forever changed his life. Because he developed a large following, then-producer Gloria Monty changed his role from 3 weeks to a 3-year contract role, resulting in appearances on many prominent television series of the 1980-90's. During this period Tristan became involved in the American Cinema Awards Foundation, created to honor achievement in cinema. As VP and Director of the shows, he helped raise over four million dollars for the Motion Picture Retirement Home and Hospital.

After making the decision to leave "General Hospital" in 1992, he then spent several years researching a show about his first love, motor racing, eventually being instrumental in launching the Canadian show, "Fast Track," and then returned to "General Hospital" in 2006. The extremely gifted actor has been playing the mysterious "Colin" on the #1 CBS daytime drama, "The Young and the Restless."
