Bet you didn’t know... Blair spent several summers performing and doing stunts at the Georgia Renaissance Festival as a pirate named Rusty Compass.
Blair Redford was thisclose to not gracing our TV screens as Ethan Whitehorse. An avid high school tennis player, he turned down college scholarship offers to pursue a career in acting instead.
Redford got his start as a model (no surprise there — have you seen those smoldering good looks?), and he landed a spot on the WB Road Crew soon after. A year-and-a-half on the Road Crew led to his big break in 2005 — the role of Scott "Scotty" Grainger Jr. on the soap opera The Young and the Restless.
After winning over TYaTR fans with his sometimes-shirtless self, he moved on to the soap opera Passions in 2007. Then in 2010, after starring in the ill-fated CW pilot Betwixt, Blair landed the recurring role of Oscar — a trouble-making Brit, complete with a delicious, albeit fake, accent — on Season 3 of 90210.
Blair joined the cast of The Lying Game as Ethan Whitehorse later that year.
