Birth Name: Jeremy Allen White

Born Feb. 18, 1991, Jeremy Allen White broke into acting with a handful of small appearances in a variety of projects including the well-received short "Aquarium" (2007), the 1970s-set "Beautiful Ohio" (2006) and guest spots on "Conviction" (NBC, 2006) and "Law & Order" (NBC, 1990-2010). He garnered critical acclaim on the indie circuit for his roles in the dramas "The Speed of Life" (2007) and "Afterschool" (2008). White also wrote, produced and appeared in the short "The Fourth" (2008) and guested on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (NBC, 1999- ), but landed a higher profile role as Charlie, the doomed cousin of White Mike (Chace Crawford) in the drug-fueled teen drama "Twelve" (2010).

The young actor truly registered with critics and audiences alike when he was cast as academically gifted Phillip "Lip" Gallagher on the dysfunctional family drama "Shameless" (Showtime, 2011- ). The series, which followed an alcoholic single father (William H. Macy) and his six kids who were forced to raise themselves, was warmly received, especially the performances of Macy, White and Emmy Rossum, who played the oldest child and surrogate mother to her siblings.
