Birth Name: Noah Gray-Cabey


Born in Newry, ME on Nov. 11, 1995, Gray-Cabey's artistic gifts became evident at an extremely early age. The son of musicians Whitney Gray and Shawn Cabey, little Noah began playing piano at the tender age of 18 months. Following his father's fingers across the keyboard and replicating his motions, Gray-Cabey learned to play music by ear. By age four, the toddler had become so adept that he began performing classical piano pieces in several venues throughout New England and Washington. At age five, Gray-Cabey was invited to tour with the renowned New England Symphonic Ensemble when they performed in Jamaica. From there, Cabey-Gray continued to wow audiences all over the world. In 2000, Gray-Cabey traveled to Australia, where he became the youngest soloist ever to perform with the Sydney Opera House orchestra. A veteran of the Queensland Conservatory and the International String Convention in Brisbane, Gray-Cabey seemed destined for a brilliant career in classical music. Fate, however, had different plans for the gifted youngster.

As word spread around town of the pint-sized virtuoso's talents, major talk shows began to line him up. An appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (NBC, 1992- ) in January of 2002 led to subsequent bookings on "The Wayne Brady Show" (Syndicated, 2002-04), as well as "The Oprah Winfrey Show" (Syndicated, 1986- ). Parlaying these appearances into real acting work, Gray-Cabey soon landed a guest starring role on "CSI: Miami" (CBS, 2002- ). Gray-Cabey's true big break, however, came in 2003, when he joined the cast of the Damon Wayans-Tisha Campbell domestic sitcom, "My Wife and Kids." Cast in the role of the ultra-precocious youngest son, Franklin Aloysius Mumford, Gray-Cabey often stole scenes from his elder cast mates. For his efforts, Gray-Cabey earned three consecutive Young Artist Award nominations.

In 2006, Gray-Cabey made his big screen debut in M. Night Shyamalan's disappointing thriller "Lady in the Water" before returning to series television in the role of child genius, Micah Sanders on "Heroes." The son of Ali Larter's character, Niki Sanders, Micah possessed an abnormally high intellect among other traits. It was later revealed that Micah also possessed the power of technopathy - a form of telepathy that enabled him to "communicate with machines and electronics." In the pilot, it was established that Niki was a single mother raising Micah on her own - however, in the fifth episode, (entitled "Hiros"), audiences were introduced to Niki's estranged husband - Micah's father - D.L. Hawkins (Leonard Roberts). As the season progressed, father and son reunited and forged a tentative bond that carried through into subsequent episodes.
