In a 2018 interview with BriefTake, Hayden opened up about his sentiments on the viewers’ positive response on his character and his LGBTQ+ storyline.


“The fan response has been overwhelmingly positive and so great. It’s so amazing to get that kind of support, and I love hearing how much people love that relationship [Travis and Grant’s]. From an actor’s perspective, working with Sterling [Sulieman] is so great. He’s such a great actor and such an awesome guy so we have a lot of fun working together. It’s fun to see my character do more than just fight fires and be grumpy.”

Moreover, the actor was previously married to actress Nikki Danielle Moore, and they have a son and daughter together.
