As a longtime fan, I‘m thrilled to provide an in-depth look at the career and personal life of the talented and charismatic Justin Hartley. Ever since I first saw him on Passions in the early 2000s, I‘ve been drawn to his acting chops and good-guy charm.

Soap Opera Heartthrob

Justin got his start in acting as a teenager on the NBC soap opera Passions. After a few smaller roles, he had a breakthrough as Fox Crane, one of the show‘s leading men. With his towering height, chiseled features, and smoldering gaze, Hartley quickly became a fan favorite.

After Passions ended, Justin stayed in the daytime TV world with a starring role on The Young and the Restless. As billionaire Adam Newman, he won over viewers with his mix of corporate ruthlessness and heartfelt romance plots. Justin played the character on and off from 2014 to 2016.

Transition to Primetime TV

Justin‘s talent and charisma on soap operas caught the attention of primetime producers. In 2006, he landed the career-changing role of Oliver Queen, aka the Green Arrow, on Smallville. Playing a morally questionable billionaire superhero allowed Justin to showcase his acting range. The Green Arrow became a Smallville mainstay, even starring in his own pseudo pilot episode in season six.

After seven seasons on Smallville, Justin got his own spin-off show Arrow in 2012. Reprising his fan-favorite character, Justin anchored the new series for its first seven seasons and over 150 episodes. Under Justin‘s portrayal, the Green Arrow became a household name in the mainstream public.

Personal Life and Charity Work

When he‘s not acting, Justin lives a relatively low-key life focused on fitness and philanthropy. He has one daughter, Isabella, from his previous marriage to Lindsay Hartley. After getting divorced in 2012, he found love again with actress Chrishell Stause. They married in 2017 but then sadly divorced in 2021.

Always humble despite his success, Justin actively supports charitable organizations like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. He also donates his time and resources to disaster relief funds and human rights foundations. It‘s this big heart and kindness that makes fans love him even more.

As Justin Hartley heads towards his mid-40s, his career continues to thrive. He shows no signs of slowing down, currently starring on the hit NBC series This Is Us. With his talents and good-guy persona, I have no doubt Justin will continue winning over audiences for many years to come!
