Tall, dark-haired, and exotically handsome Michael Nader is known for playing Dex Dexter on the nighttime television soap opera Dynasty and for playing enigmatic Dimitri Marick on the daytime sudser All My Children. He began his career in films in the teen movie Bikini Beach (1964). He had his first regular television role playing Peter "Siddo" Stone in the sitcom Gidget (1965-1966). After the series' demise, Nader studied at the Actor's Studio in New York and went on to appear off-Broadway in a few plays before getting cast as Kevin Thompson in the soap As the World Turns. From there he won the role of Alex Theodopolous in the short-lived nighttime serial Bare Essence (1983). That same year, he joined Dynasty's cast as Joan Collins' new husband. He debuted on All My Children in late 1991. When not busy on that show, Nader has occasionally guest starred on other television shows and appeared in feature films such as Fled (1996).
