Zachery Ty Bryan, known for his role as Brad Taylor on the TV series “Home Improvement,” was born on October 9, 1981, grew up in Colorado and began his acting career with commercials and print ads before moving to California. Despite being younger than the character who played his younger brother on “Home Improvement,” Bryan’s portrayal of Brad Taylor resonated with audiences worldwide.
The success of “Home Improvement” led Bryan to venture into film, starring in movies like “True Heart” alongside Kirsten Dunst and appearing in “The Rage: Carrie 2” and “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.”
Interestingly, during his early acting days, Bryan crossed paths with Brock Pierce, who would later become a billionaire through investments in Bitcoin. Inspired by Pierce, Bryan also made early Bitcoin investments, which reportedly earned him millions.
When asked about his Bitcoin fortune in a June 2023 interview, Bryan didn’t disclose the exact amount but acknowledged the significant impact it had on his financial situation.
A little bit of his personal life
In his personal life, Bryan married his high school friend Carly Matros in 2007, and they have four children together. However, they split up in October 2020. It’s worth noting that Bryan made headlines when he was arrested in Eugene, Oregon, on charges that included allegedly strangling another woman, identified as his girlfriend at the time, Johnnie Faye Cartwright. Despite the arrest, Bryan and Cartwright have remained together and have three children, including twins.
In Bryan’s own words about his financial situation and Bitcoin investments, he stated, “I’ve always been fortunate with my trust fund from Home Improvement, but this definitely moved things into a different [area] for me.”
