Played by Charles Divins
(Originally played by Donn
Character Traits: Hard working, determined to succeed, and tries to be
Marital Status: Single, but dating Whitney
Relatives: None that he knows of but possibly the Cranes (Father:
Julian) and the Russells (Mother: Eve)
Profession: Music producer; local dj; worked at the Book Cafe; worked as
TC's assistant at the high school
Friends in Harmony: Theresa, Ethan, Simone, and Miguel
Reason for coming to Harmony: He wanted to find his parents. He had
information that showed his parents could be from Harmony. He left Los
Angeles to go search for his parents.
Meeting Simone and Whitney: When he met Simone, he became friends with
her. She immediately took a liking to him but he didn't share the same
feelings for her: he thought of her as a friend. She wanted to help him find
When he met Whitney, they didn't get along. He thought that she was a
snob and she thought that he was a street punk. Eventually, his feelings for
her turned into love. Whitney also tried to help Chad find his parents.
First impression: When Chad met TC and Eve, they didn't approve of him.
They thought that he was just a street punk. Eve, however, had another
reason to disapprove of him. Orville warned her to keep Chad away from her
daughters but he wouldn't tell her why. Since then, she hasn’t wanted him to
have anything to do with her daughters. Eventually TC came to like him. He
wanted to give him a job, so he took him on as his assistant. Eve still
didn't want him to be around their daughters.
TC eventually let Chad date Simone. He didn't know that Chad was
interested in Whitney.
Searching for his parents: He met Orville, who seemed to know about his
past. He said that he had information about his past. He never got the
chance to find out what that information was because Orville was hurt. He
went to Orville’s apartment to look for anything that he could find about
his parents. He found a birth certificate with his name crossed out and then
written on the certificate. His parents’ names weren't on it.
He also met a woman named Crystal Harris. He met her at a jazz club where
she was a singer. She told him that she was friends with his mother. She
also told him about his father being a racist and abandoning his
mother. This made him angry. He didn't want to hear the rest but she wanted
to tell him anyway. Crystal said that his mother named her baby Chad after
her father, and Harris was her last name. She couldn't tell him the rest of
the story because she had to sing again. He was supposed to meet her after
the show, but she was killed later that night, so he never got the chance to
talk to her again. Her killer has never been found.
Heroic acts: He has proved that he can be heroic. The first time he
saved Whitney's life was during the prom. The prom was on a boat, and he was
asked to be the dj. The prom boat sank, and he saved her from drowning. The
second time was when he saved Whitney from getting hit by bricks. The debris
was falling, but she wasn't paying attention. She was thinking about her
feelings for Chad when she was almost hit. Chad pushed her out of the way
just in time, but he was hit instead. The third time was when he took a
bullet for Eve. When the drug cartel held her captive, they were about to
kill her. He found out and tried to save her by jumping in the way so she
wouldn't get shot. He was shot instead. This made her change her mind about
her feelings for him.
Moving in: When Chad needed a place to stay because his building was
burned down, TC invited him to stay with them because he had saved Whitney
and Eve's lives. Eve disapproved of this at first, but she changed her
mind. While Chad was living with the Russells, Chad and Whitney's feelings
Misunderstandings: When Chad was shot, Eve wanted him to stay in
Whitney's room. He couldn't afford to go to the hospital, so she wanted him
to stay in her room temporarily. Needless to say, Whitney was not
pleased. Chad and Whitney had feelings for each other but they didn't let
the other know. Ethan talked Chad into telling Whitney about his feelings
for her. Theresa talked Whitney into telling Chad about her feelings for
him. They were finally persuaded to reveal how they felt but that's when the
misunderstanding happened: he was delirious from being shot and he thought
he was telling Whitney that he loved her. Instead, he was telling Simone. Of
course, he didn't say, “I love you Whitney,” so Simone thought he was saying
it to her. Little did Chad know, Whitney overheard him saying this to Simone
and so she thought the same thing, that he loved Simone. When Chad told
Ethan that he was really in love with Whitney, Kay overheard it. She wanted
to come up with a plan to keep Chad from Whitney.
Another misunderstanding occurred when Kay lied about Simone having
bulimia. He wanted to tell Simone the truth but Kay said that she couldn't
handle it because of the bulimia. When this plan didn't work, she started a
rumor about him. She said that he got a girl pregnant and abandoned her. Of
course, Whitney believed this rumor. Kay finally confessed that she lied
about the girl. Whitney apologized for not believing Chad but it was too
Another misunderstanding was when Whitney was drugged at a New Year's Eve
party and TC thought that Chad was the one who had drugged her. He never
found out whether it was Chad but he was so mad about it that he threw Chad
out of the house. Since then, he has been living at the recording studio
where he is now working.
Fighting: Chad has had several fights in Harmony. He has fought TC
several times. One time was when TC thought that he drugged Whitney. The
others were when TC found out that Chad and Whitney were a couple.
Could Chad be a Crane? Chad had a suspicion that Julian could be his
father. When Chad met Julian, he thought that he was a racist. He
remembered that his father was white and a racist and that made him think
that he could have possibly been a Crane. The feeling didn't last long.
Obstacles: Chad and Whitney had obstacles keeping them apart. Simone was
under the impression that he was her boyfriend. Whitney didn't want to hurt
Simone, so she kept her distance from Chad. Another obstacle was TC: he
didn't want her to have a boyfriend because he thought she wouldn't be able
to concentrate on her tennis.
Finally getting together: After a while, Chad and Whitney finally got
together. They decided that they were going to tell Simone that they were in
love. They were also going to tell her father that she could have a
boyfriend and still be a tennis champ.
Problems after getting together: When Chad was ready to tell the truth,
Whitney never was. She kept insisting that she couldn't hurt her sister. By
the time they were ready to tell the truth, Simone already knew about it.
She had seen them together. Simone kept finding ways to keep them apart.
Whitney kept lying to her whenever Simone caught them together. She always
had an excuse ready for her.
Simone finally caught them making love at Chad's studio. Needless to say,
she was very upset. She told her parents, and TC forbade her from seeing
Chad. She didn't let that stop her.
Chad was offered a position as a producer in California. He accepted it,
but he wanted Whitney to go with him. She wasn't sure if she would go.
Before he left for LA, Whitney wanted to find his parents. That way, if her
parents met them, they might approve of her relationship with Chad.
They almost had another problem when they overheard Eve talking about a
son that she had a long time ago. They thought that they might have been
brother and sister. For now, this problem is resolved because Eve said that
Eve and Julian's son? It's still not known whether or not Chad is really
their son. It has been foreshadowed that he could be their son.
Trapped: Chad, Whitney, Fox, and Theresa all decided to go to the Blue
Note to celebrate going to California. Chad wanted to take Whitney out
because she wanted to go to L.A. with him. They were all having fun and
before they knew it, the club was on fire. It took a lot to get rescued, but
they finally got out of the club.
Los Angeles: Chad, Whitney, and Fox all moved to California. Fox offered
to let Chad and Whitney stay with him in the Crane apartment. Chad started
working at the record company while Fox has been getting closer to Whitney.
Chad finally met the new singer at the company. She was immediately
impressed with him, and she has already kissed him, twice. Whitney saw Syd
kiss Chad on one occasion. Syd said that it was something that people do in
California. When Chad and Syd were working on a song, she kissed him again.
He told Syd that he will only love Whitney. She accepted that, for now.
Recently, he believed Fox was in love with Whitney because Syd convinced
him that the two were too close. (They were only hugging.)
Secrets: It has been hinted at that Chad has a secret past in L.A. Only
time will tell whether it will be revealed.
