A pre-med major for one year at McGill University in Montreal, Forbes quit school and followed his heart, taking him to Vancouver where he held many jobs to pay the bills, one being a door-to-door watch salesman. Selling those watches is what led Forbes to his first break.
When he entered the Charles Stuart modeling agency with his watch case, instead of showing him the door, they signed Forbes to their acting division, leading him to land his first television appearance in the Canadian series, Northwood.
After the cancellation of the show, Forbes flew to Milan, fell in love with the city and stayed for three-and-a-half years, modeling throughout Europe for clients such as Armani and Tommy Hilfiger.
In 1998, his modeling career brought him to New York. He then enrolled in the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute where he auditioned and won the role of Scott Chandler on All My Children .
After All My Children , Forbes took on roles in both film and television such as Dirty Love, Off Broadway and Campfire Stories. His television guest appearances include roles on C.S.I., Mutant X, and the MTV pilot Shotgun Love Dolls.
A man of many talents, Forbes is fluent in Italian, has studied piano, French horn, guitar and voice, loves all outdoor sports including canoeing, hiking and snow skiing.
He currently lives in Manhattan with his wife Vanessa and daughter Marina.
