Now at 56, he looks quite different than when he was at the height of his career when many ladies all throughout the globe would swoon over this heartthrob.


The handsome man is none other than Joe Lando. He became most known for his character as Byron Sully from Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, a 90’s soap opera.

A lot of women still dream about the actor and the days when the show was still being aired on screens.

Before he starred as Sully, Lando had made appearances on multiple projects including Guiding Light and One Life to Live. He also starred as a pizza guy for I Love You to Death.


He also got the chance to show his bad side when he portrayed an antagonist role on one of the episodes of that Beauty and the Beast show, which starred Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton.

Presently, Lando has kept himself busy by appearing in films such as Bloodsuckers and Meteor Apocalypse. Before The Secret Circle was canceled on the CW, Lando had also made an appearance on the show.


Up until now, he continues to make appearances in the industry. His recent project this year is starring as Sam Moses on Paloma’s Flight.

As a young man, Lando attended Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois.

He started his acting career in 1986 when he snatched the small role of a patrolman in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.

By 1997, he settled down and tied the knot with Kristen Barlow. Their marriage still remains strong up to this day. Since then, they have welcomed four children.
