Biography

Originally approached by a representative of a background-acting agency at the Orange County Fair in 2004, Austin Butler quickly graduated from an eye-catching background artist to leading man material in the space of a decade. After working as an extra on several TV shows, the teenager found he thoroughly enjoyed the work, began taking acting lessons and won his first regular role as Zippy in Nickelodeon's "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide" (2004-07). Following guest appearances on the popular tween series "Hannah Montana" (Disney 2006-11) and "iCarly" (Nickelodeon 2007-12), Austin landed a recurring role as James, the love interest of the title character (Jamie Lynn Spears) on the final season of Nickelodeon's "Zoey 101" (2005-08). In 2009, he landed his first leading role, alongside Ashley Tisdale in the family comedy "Aliens in the Attic," in which he played Jake, fighting alongside his family to protect their vacation home from invading aliens. He reunited with Tisdale, now playing her love interest instead of her brother, in the direct-to-DVD "High School Musical" spin-off "Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure" (2011). Moving to more mature fare, Austin joined the cast of emotional family drama series "Switched at Birth" (ABC Family 2011- ). In 2013, he co-starred in The CW's "The Carrie Diaries," a 1980s-set prequel to the hugely successful "Sex and the City" based on the Candace Bushnell novel of the same name. Austin played Sebastian, a rebellious rich kid whose troubled romantic relationship with a teenage Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb) foreshadows some of the issues that will come to preoccupy her in later life.
