Past History

Henry Cooper Bradshaw was nicknamed 'Coop' by his mother, a former jewel thief who raised him in South America. When she returned to Springfield with him, she finally admitted to Buzz that Coop was his son. Sadly, soon after the couple's reconciliation, she died in a car accident. His traumas continued when he was abducted by Holly Reade. After his rescue, Buzz sent him to England to live with his mother's family. He returned to Springfield as a teenager after news of Buzz's heart attack and was thrown into the family quarrels with Philip Spaulding over Company. This would lead to a conflict ridden relationship with Philip's daughter Lizzie. At first he hated her but, forced to serve as her chauffeur, they gradually started to sympathize. While family squabbles escalated, Lizzie and Coop grew closer, but their relationship broke down when she tried to trap him into an engagement by any means possible, including trying pass Jonathan Randall's child off as his. Horrified by Lizzie's manipulative behavior, he soon developed a relationship with Ava Peralta and became more serious about pursuing his dream of becoming a writer. Their relationship has been complicated by her antagonism with Olivia Spencer, the love interest of his brother and father. They've broken up, thanks largely to his increasingly paranoid and over-protective behavior toward her.
