Interesting Facts

2 His mother is of Russian Jewish descent.
3 In July 2010, Michael was invited to Germany, by the USO to be the celebrity guest for their first USO educational tour. He worked with over 600 students and spent time with wounded soldiers.
4 Has worked with two different actors who were born on January 23, 1950: Richard Dean Anderson in the Stargate SG-1 (1997) episode "Fragile Balance" and Richard Gilliland in the Joan of Arcadia (2003) episodes "Death Be Not Whatever" and "The Devil Made Me Do It".
5 Andrew Dorsett, the Young Frasier to his Young Niles in Frasier (1993) episode "Where Every Bloke Knows Your Name," plays in a band with one of Welch's friends who is also one of his former drum instructors.
6 Has two nephews named Paul and Sammy and 2 nieces named Sarah and Sophie.
7 Got his first car, a Toyota Prius, in October 2004.
8 The actresses who played his girlfriends, Mageina Tovah and Becky Wahlstrom, in Joan of Arcadia (2003) were eight and twelve years older than him respectively even though they were all supposed to be much the same age.
9 Appeared in episodes of two different television series which originally aired on January 21, 2001 on Fox: The X-Files (1993) episode "Badlaa" and Malcolm in the Middle (2000) episode "New Neighbors."
10 Is close friends with his Joan of Arcadia (2003) co-star Chris Marquette and Aaron Himelstein who played the recurring character Friedman on that series.
11 Has worked with two actors who appeared in versions of "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers": Richard Dean Anderson (who he appeared with in the Stargate SG-1 (1997) episode "Fragile Balance") played Adam McFadden in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1982), Russ Tamblyn (who he appeared with in the Joan of Arcadia (2003) episodes "Night without Stars", "Do the Math" and "Friday Night") played Gideon Pontipee in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954).
12 As his eyes are blue in real-life, he had to wear contact lenses when playing the younger version of Colonel Jack O'Neill in the Stargate SG-1 (1997) episode "Fragile Balance" as Richard Dean Anderson (who plays the usual version of the character) has brown eyes.
13 Michael got engaged to Samantha at the Thirst Project Gala, 2015. Sarah, Michael's older sister, works as an outreach director as an Optometrist. She is married to Paul and they have a son. Michael also enjoys a close extended family.
14 Comments that after shooting the entire first season of Joan of Arcadia (2003), he was recognized just as equally from a single episode of Stargate SG-1 (1997).
15 Part of what got him into acting was his flexible ability to accurately emulate other roles and dialects.
16 Played a younger version of Colonel Jack O'Neill (Richard Dean Anderson) in the Stargate SG-1 (1997) episode, 'Fragile Balance.' His Joan of Arcadia (2003) co-star Mary Steenburgen has been mentioned several times on that series as being O'Neill's heartthrob.


1 Just don't forget to be alive while you're living, that's all I'm saying. :)
2 [on being raised by a Protestant father and a Jewish mother] I have a cool family... We are not strict about things.
3 I always thought it'd be fun to go to a sci-fi convention, watch a bunch of Klingons walking around, all of that kind of stuff.
4 [You have to] put your own ego aside and do what's right for the role. I've always been willing to do that. I really don't care what I look like as long as it fits with the thing I'm working on.
5 (Regarding his performance as Luke on "Joan of Arcadia") I don't feel that I'm playing it like a nerd. I've never liked to play stereotypes.
