Originally from Billings, Montana, Wally grew up performing in musical theatre and songwriting. He's appeared on stage every from the Kennedy Center to Broadway, where he starred as the Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance. He's no stranger to daytime either. Some may remember Wally from his days as General Hospital's Ned Ashton. He was so popular that in 1996, he was voted as the Most Valuable Player by Soap Opera Update readers and Hottest Male Star by Soap Opera Digest. Wally lives in the Los Angeles area with his wife and three children. He's an active part of the Los Angeles Equity-waiver theatrical arena, where he's both an actor and director. He's worked on Over the Rainbow: The Music of Harold Arlen, and Sondheim: Part 3, an annual event to benefit AIDS-related services in Los Angeles. And when he's not acting or directing, Wally is writing and performing original music with Christian Taylor! He's the recipient of the Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Song for "Barefoot Ballet," a song which aired on an episode of General Hospital.
Wally spends many weekends performing music at charity events to raise money for his Kurth & Taylor Foundation, which donates money to local and national children's charities.
