Alan-Michael has always seemed to be the most sincere of the Spaulding men, as well as the most conflicted. He is the son of Alan Spaulding and Hope Bauer; an interesting character. Alan-Michael portrayed by Rick Hearst

Alan-Michael was always trying to live up to the example that his older brother Phillip set. They've even married some of the same women.  He left town for a long time after marrying Lucy Cooper. They moved to France after getting upset at what was going on between their families in Springfield.

Of course Alan-Michael has done some bad things of his own in the past. For example, in an attempt to remain close to Eleni, he switched her birth control pills with placebos, so that he could "give her a reason to stay". He also married Harley, in part, to get a one million dollar trust fund. He also paid a French woman to claim that she had slept with Frank Cooper. He was hoping that it would drive Eleni from Frank to him.

Alan-Michael portrayed by Michael DempseyAlan-Michael often goes to great lengths for the women he cares about; sometimes it makes him a little scary and compulsive.  He learned a lot of business instincts from his father, Alan, which got him into a lot of trouble in both business and in the romance department.  He was not as good at the machinations as his father was. Alan framed him for embezzlement in order to get him to leave town.
