The actor, who plays Luke Posner, went live on the soap's YouTube channel as part of their weekly performances.

But before he began singing, he told viewers: "I chose to sing Smile by Nat King Cole because I want to make you guys smile.

"And also I want to dedicate this song to a dear friend of mine who's going through a rough time right now, so hopefully he sees this and it makes him smile."
