more about Frank Tab Bullet

Frank's interest in and study of dreams and symbols date back to his undergraduate years at Princeton University. Frank is probably best known as one of the most popular soap opera stars of the 1980's. He played Steve Andropoulos on As the World Turns, opposite Meg Ryan. He also starred as Father Michael Donnelly on Santa Barbara, as well as Simon Romero on General Hospital opposite Emma Samms. His prime-time appearances included recurring roles on LA Law, Falcon Crest and Melrose Place. He also starred in feature films such as Sudden Death and Bolero. Frank is nominated for the 2016 Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series for his role as a psychotherapist and angel on The Young and the Restless. In the 90's, Frank realized that there were far more important stories and truths to tell than those of a soap opera bad boy. He returned to school and earned a Masters Degree, with honors, from General Theological Seminary. Frank tours the country performing and lecturing on what he has learned about faith, life and dreams.
