Actor | U.S. Marine Veteran
Greg Duke was born in San Diego, California, the youngest of five children. At age five, his family moved to Chicago where he grew up loving sports and theatre. An award-winning athlete, Greg’s passion and excellence put him on a fast track to a career in sports. He earned a full scholarship at Syracuse University where he played Division 1 Lacrosse, winning the National Championship.
After graduating, Greg went into the Marine Corps for three years where he trained as a sniper, but his interest in performing arts led him back to California where he pursued his childhood dream of becoming an actor.
Learning the craft of acting was important to Greg, and upon returning from his tour of duty, he swiftly enrolled in scene study (Rossi Snyder Theatre Labs and Playhouse West), improv, and comedy at Groundlings. He continues to study with the best acting teachers in Hollywood. Greg's chiseled good looks, winning smile, piercing blue eyes, and reputation for being an affable team player made him a sought after model.
His commercial credits include Harley Davidson, Shiseido, Aussie Bum, Andrew Christianson, and an Abercrombie & Fitch campaign shot by Bruce Weber.
Greg's success in modeling quickly led to acting opportunities in Los Angeles. His credits include the feature films Bewitched, The Island and American Sniper. Television credits include Alias, Passions, General Hospital, CSI Miami, and a recurring role on Ray Donovan.
In his free time, Greg enjoys tennis, martial arts, and golf. He is a passionate advocate for humane treatment of animals and physical fitness. Plus, he’s a damn good bartender.
