During the 1990s, Forbes March began his journey to the spotlight when he landed the role of Scott Chandler on the soap opera All My Children. He left the show in 2000 because his performance with co-star Abigail Spencer didn’t strike up enough interest from audiences. This didn’t stop his career however, and he continued work with Spencer on the independent film Campfire Stories in 2001. He later booked a role on the Canadian science fiction series, Mutant X as Jesse Kilmartin. The show was canceled in 2004, allowing the actor to land a guest spot on Doc. In July 2005, he joined the cast of the ABC soap opera One Life to Live, portraying the character Nash Brennan. His character is an aspiring vineyard owner. That year, March became involved in the romantic comedy Dirty Love, starring Jenny McCarthy, Eddie Kay Thomas and Carmen Electra. He later got a guest role in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, before he continued to work on films. He was seen on the thriller Undone with Dan Gauthier, as well as in the drama Manhattanites with Ilene Kristen and Aiden Turner.
