Eric Winter is taking daytime television by storm with his role as Rex Brady, (son of Roman and Kate Brady) giving a new flare to NBC's number one daytime drama "Days of Our Lives".
Eric, raised in La Puente, is proud to say that he is the third generation of the Winter family to be raised in his California neighborhood. An only child, he remained very close to his parents. His mother currently is the Vice President of a company that provides theatrical fabrics for movie sets and large-scale parties, while his father owns an investigative company. Eric dreamed of playing football professionally.
Eric began high school at a meek 160 pounds, but proceeded to bulk up with extensive weight training and nutrition. Senior year came and Eric was 225 pounds. He started to play football his first year at Mt. Saint Antonio College in the city of Walnut. However Eric says, "I lost the drive for the game that year." Eric looked to succeed elsewhere. Eric realized that there was more to life than football, so he decided to transfer to UCLA. During the year, Eric shed 30 pounds of the bulky football build.

As soon as Eric thought he had figured out his path in life, he came across another fork in the road. "A girlfriend of mine that was involved in acting suggested I should model. I took pictures and she sent them to her manager which in turn sent the pictures to a print agency." As quickly as that happened, he got his first job, a print ad for Magic Mountain Water Park. Eight months later he received the opportunity of a lifetime: the Tommy Hilfiger Campaign with Rebecca Romijn Stamos. The print ads featured every Hilfiger line. From this point on, modeling consumed Eric's life. He took time off school to further his career. Modeling took him all over Europe, where he would strut the elite runways of Milan, Paris, London, and Spain. Eric did print ads for Iceberg, Sky Vodka, Men's Italian Vogue, and Diesel Clothing. Despite his success in modeling, Eric finished school and obtained a degree in psychology from UCLA.
Eric continued landing hot national commercial campaigns for 7UP and Mitsubishi, guest appearances in several popular TV shows, "Charmed," "Profiler," "The Parkers," "The Andy Dick Show," and "MTV's Undressed." Eric eventually found his niche when he was cast on "Days of Our Lives." With his charm and good looks, Eric Winter is not going anywhere except to the top. Eric presently resides in Los Angeles, California.
