Bailey is a successful actor who is best known for his role as Sandy Foster on Guiding Light.
But before he took up what he calls pretending for a living, he was close to getting a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering and even worked on the worlds most powerful laser.
But while Bailey is no longer working on his advanced degree, he says his science background has helped him on the set.
In his words, Movie sets are a matrix of problems that have to be solved on the fly. And there are time when I will just blurt out, Why dont we do this? and everyones amazed.
But while his science background helps him solve problems, he admits he doesnt drag textbooks on the set when hes filming, say, a love scene.
As he puts it, If Im thinking of science when Im filming a love scene, Im missing out.
Baileys latest project is the MyNetworkTV soap Saints And Sinners, which debuts next Wednesday (Mar. 14).
