Michael Baldwin - Casting and Creation

Casting and Creation

Christian LeBlanc has portrayed the role of Michael since 1991. He departed in 1993, and has been appearing regularly again since April 25, 1997. During a 2011 interview LeBlanc said everyday "you have this incredible challenge, which, as an actor, that’s what I find, that’s what keeps it interesting. Michael Baldwin is not me. Every day I have to say ‘This is a character I created,’ and I have to find him again every day and commit every day, 12 months a year." In April 2005, the character of Michael briefly crossed over to another CBS soap opera, As the World Turns. He served as Keith Morrissey's (Kin Shriner) attorney. Additionally, along with Jeanne Cooper who plays Katherine Chancellor, LeBlanc reprised his role during the final episode of Guiding Light in 2009. LeBlanc has won Daytime Emmy Awards for his portrayal of the role in 2005, 2007, and 2009; all for 'Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series'.
