Born December 5, 1987 in New York City, New York, Ben Levin made his screen debut as a teenager in the coming-of-age drama "The Emperor's Club" in 2002. He then pursued academic and professional studies at both New York University and The Sanford Meisner Studio before resuming his acting career with appearances in several short films and independent features. In 2009, he returned to the mainstream as the surly teen turned heartthrob Gabriel Caras on the final season of "As the World Turns." Following the series' demise, Levin returned to guest work in features and television, including supporting turns on "The Big C" and the independent feature "30 Beats" (2012), which cast him opposite Condola Rashad as longtime friends whose relationship is complicated by physical intimacy. The following year, he landed a supporting role in Paul Weitz's comedy "Admission" (2013), with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd.

|The Gabriel Caras plot was the last "major" storyline on "As the World Turns" (CBS, 1956-2010), and, as many critics noted, hearkened back to many of the former "prodigal sons/daughters" story arcs of the past. As with those plot lines, fans initially decried the arrival of Levin's Caras for violating the show's history|
