Blonde, green-eyed child actor David Gallagher landed his first job at 18 months old and went on to make his film debut at the age of eight in "Look Who's Talking Now" (1993), but would reach his widest audience as Simon Camden, one of the five (later seven) children of a progressive minister, on the popular family drama "7th Heaven" (The WB, 1996-2007). One of the network's highest rated series, the heartfelt "7th Heaven" won the actor many young fans and an enviable visibility. Gallagher's portrayal of Simon Camden was believable, transcending two-dimensional stereotype to create a fully realized character at once guileless and precocious. Beginning with supporting parts in TV-movies, the young actor has been a consistent presence on the small screen since 1995, with a role in the CBS true crime movie "It Was Him or Us." "Summer of Fear" (CBS) and "Bermuda Triangle" (ABC) followed in 1996, starring Gallagher as the son in families stalked by a mysterious stranger and shipwrecked on an enchanting remote island, respectively. A guest role on "Walker, Texas Ranger" portraying a young boy with telekinetic powers followed his "7th Heaven" debut.
