Chad is of Italian and German ancestry, and was raised in Artesia with his twin sister and a brother. He was raised as a Roman Catholic and nowadays considers himself rather a spiritual person, due to the strict connection with the faith that his parents nurtured during his childhood.

Chad became a teen idol in the ‘80s, making a name for himself in a number of successful TV series, including “St. Elsewhere” (1983-1988), then “Our House” (1986-1988) and “My Two Dads” (1989-1990). Besides TV roles, Chad also had success on the big screen in the ‘80s; in 1985 he appeared in Paul Wendkos’ Primetime Emmy Award-nominated horror drama “The Bad Seed”, next to Blair Brown, Lynn Redgrave and David Carradine, and the same year featured in the drama “Not My Kid”, starring George Segal, Stockard Channing and Andrew Robinson. His net worth was well set.

He started the next decade with the lead role in the comedy adventure “Camp Cucamonga”, one of the early Jennifer Aniston films, and continued with a role in the crime thriller “Murder in New Hampshire: The Pamela Wojas Smart Story” in 1991. Two years later, Chad was selected for one of his most prominent roles, portraying Matthew Cooper in over 140 episodes of the Golden Globe Award- winning TV series “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman”, starring Jane Seymour, Joe Lando and Shawn Toovey; the particular role increased his net worth to a large degree and also won him the Michael Landon Award.

His next successful role was as Lucas Warner in the drama film “What Matters Most” in 2001, directed by Jane Cusumano, and then in 2005 playing Donald Strachey, a gay private detective in the mystery thriller “Third Man Out”, repeating the role in three sequels – “Shock to the System” (2006), “On the Other Hand, Death” (2008) and “Ice Blues” (2008). In between those accomplishments, Chad produced and starred in the romantic drama “Save Me” (2007), which also added to his wealth.

In 2008 he played Eric Whitlow in several episodes of the TV series “General Hospital: Night Shift”, and then the following year he starred in another gay centered film “Hollywood, je t’aime”. Before he retired, Chad appeared in the comedy “Spork” (2010), and horror “Fright Flick” (2011. In 2015 he posted a video of his retirement, stating also that he wants to become a clinical psychologist, and that he has fully focused on his next goal, leaving acting years behind him.

Regarding his personal life, Chad is openly gay; he came out in 1996. From 2005 to 2011 he was in a relationship with Jeremy Glazer, also an actor, and his co-star in the film “Save Me” (2007). Apparently he is currently single.

#Quote
1I don't remember a time when I didn't know I was gay. I may not have known what to call it, and for a long time, I probably wouldn't have even associated it with sexual attraction. But, I knew something about me was different. I have been acting since I was a child. On one of my very first jobs I was playing a sick kid on some bad TV show and Alec Baldwin was giving me mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Alec Baldwin! I couldn't wait to get to work. I would sit and stare at him all day long. I couldn't stand not to be around him. I think I was eight years old at the time.
2The constitution exists to protect minorities like us from majority votes. We need the constitution to stand up for us. We need politicians and like-minded, fair-minded people to stand up and insist that the constitution protect us the way it's designed to do.
3[Until Brokeback Mountain (2005)] there was a huge fear or belief that you couldn't tell a story with a gay hero and have it make money. A well-made movie with a good story trumps everything. It's not just a victory for gay rights; it's a victory for humanity.
4I don't know if it's as damaging on a public level, but I'm certain it's damaging on a personal level. I'm absolutely certain that forcing any young person or not-so-young person into dealing with the issue when they aren't ready to or simply don't want to is damaging to the soul. It's just not right.
#Fact
1Acting mentors were Wilford Brimley and Jane Seymour.
2Best known by the public for his roles as David Witherspoon on Our House (1986) and Matthew Cooper on Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (1993).
3Allen has been with his partner, actor Jeremy Glazer, since May 2005. They both appear in the film "Save Me" (2007).
4As a boy, he played the autistic character "Tommy Westfall" on the TV series St. Elsewhere (1982). At first a minor character, Tommy took on great significance in the final episode when the entire series was revealed to have taken place inside his head. This has given rise to a fan theory known as the "Tommy Westphall Universe Hypothesis", which states that numerous shows that are connected to "St. Elsewhere" through character crossovers or dialog references have also taken place in Tommy's mind. For instance, the show had a crossover with Cheers (1982), and several characters from "St. Elsewhere" were featured in Homicide: Life on the Street (1993). From those links, the program can be linked to at least 280 other non-animated shows, ranging from I Love Lucy (1951) to CSI: NY (2004) (as of 2007).
5As of 2006, he has a position on the Honorary Board of Directors for The Matthew Shepard Foundation. On July 22, 2006, he joined Shepard's mother Judy and about 800 other people in a peaceful demonstration outside the Colorado Springs, Colorado, headquarters of Focus on the Family, a Christian organization.
6He donated many items to Rocky Stone to be given to less fortunate kids as part of the Toy Mountain Campaign.
7Has been featured on the cover of "The Advocate" three times: October 9, 2001, November 25, 2003, and August 30, 2005.
8One of the co-founders of a production company called Mythgarden, which he formed with producer Christopher Racster and actor Robert Gant (Queer as Folk (2000)).
9One of the co-founders of The Creative Outlet theater company in 1995, and has appeared in several theater productions during the summer breaks.
10Travels to Costa Rica are featured in the February 2004 issue of "The Out Traveler" magazine.
11Only signed on for the Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (1993) pilot to earn money for college. He did not think the series would be picked up and thought that it would pay for his college tuition. The series ran for 6 years.
