Justin Scott Hartley (born January 29, 1977)[1] is an American actor, known for his roles as Fox Crane in the NBC daytime soap opera Passions (2002–2006) and Oliver Queen in The CW's superhero series Smallville (2006–2011). Hartley also starred in the short-lived CW comedy-drama Emily Owens, M.D. in 2012, before landing recurring roles in the ABC primetime dramas Revenge and Mistresses. On August 19, 2014, it was announced that Hartley would take over the role of Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless, succeeding Michael Muhney. Hartley first appeared on November 5, 2014.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Hartley was born in Knoxville, Illinois, and was raised in Orland Park, Illinois, with his brother Nathan, and sisters Megan and Gabriela. After graduating from Carl Sandburg High School, he attended Southern Illinois University Carbondale and University of Illinois at Chicago where he majored in history and theater.[3]

In 2003, Hartley began dating his Passions co-star Lindsay Korman (who played Theresa Lopez-Fitzgerald). After six months, the two became engaged on November 13, 2003 and on May 1, 2004, they married in a small ceremony. On July 3, 2004, Lindsay gave birth to their daughter Isabella Justice. On May 6, 2012, it was announced that Lindsay filed for divorce after eight years of marriage in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences" and is asking for joint physical and legal custody of their daughter.[4] In 2014, he began dating Days of Our Lives star Chrishell Stause.[5]
