Marcus Paul Blucas, an American actor most famous for playing the role of Riley Finn in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, was born on January 11, 1972, in Butler, Pennsylvania. His mother, Mary Catherine, was an educator, and his father, Walter Joseph Blucas, was a school superintendent. After his parents divorced, he stayed with his father. Marcus attended Girard High School, where he was part of the basketball team and even tried out for the NBA. He completed his college education at Wake Forest University, where he was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity. When he failed to qualify for the NBA, he was disappointed and moved to England, where he joined the British basketball team and pursued a law degree.
In 2009, Marc Blucas married Ryan Haddon; it was Ryan's second marriage and Marc's first. She had previously been married to Christian Slater. In 2005, Marc was reportedly dating Lauren Graham, who played Lorelai Gilmore in Gilmore Girls. Their relationship was said to be very close, but there were claims that they weren't dating as only a few pictures of them together can be found on the internet, and it was suggested that those pictures were taken for a magazine shoot and had nothing to do with their relationship. Marc has never commented on his relationship with Lauren. They were together for only five months. Before Lauren, Marc dated Mary Parent for five years, from 2000 to 2005. Mary Parent was the Executive Vice President of Production at Universal Studios.
Marc and Ryan's wedding took place in Pennsylvania, and they canceled their honeymoon as Marc had an audition for 'Knight and Day'. They had been dating for two years before they got married in 2009, the same year that Ryan separated from Christian Slater at Christmas. Marc is rarely seen with Ryan in public, and they keep their children away from the media to help them avoid rumors about their personal life and unwanted public judgment of their actions.
