James Christopher Read was born on July 31, 1953, in Buffalo, New York.
“Read has spent a few weeks at Patrick Swayze’s ranch, where Swayze taught him to ride a horse. During his first month on “North and South” (1985) set, Read met Wendy Kilbourne. They started dating, got married soon thereafter, and are still together to this day.” http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0416856/bio
