Biography

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- ). 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.

Next up for the young actor was "Angels in the Endzone", an ABC "Wonderful World of Disney" TV-movie sequel to the successful 1994 feature "Angels in the Outfield", this time centering around high school football instead of major league baseball. Here Gallagher starred as Kevin, the younger brother of distraught high school football player Jesse (Matthew Lawrence), who blames their father's tragic death on the team's legendary losing streak. The action begins when Kevin asks for divine intervention to get the team, and Jesse, back on the winning track. In 2000, the actor took on the role of Marty in "Hide and Shriek: A New Spin & Marty Adventure", ABC's revisiting of the popular 1950s mystery adventure series.

Gallagher's film debut came in 1993 with a starring role as Mikey Ubriacco in "Look Who's Talking Now", the "now the dogs are talking!" entry into the three part franchise starring John Travolta and Kirstie Alley. He followed up with another role opposite Travolta, this time as the son of the actor's love interest Kyra Sedgwick in 1996's "Phenomenon". The direct-to-video feature "Richie Rich's Christmas Wish" (1998) had Gallagher taking over the title role from Macauley Culkin in this second live-action adaptation of Hanna-Barbera's animated series about a millionaire child.

In addition to his film credits and numerous television appearances, Gallagher appeared onstage in 1994 as the young Scrooge in the seasonal hit "A Christmas Carol", performed at Madison Square Garden's Paramount Theater.
