Biography

Actor Jake Abel blossomed quickly into a popular lead and supporting player, as well as a believable heel, on the strength of such teen-friendly genre films as "Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief" (2010) and "The Host" (2013). Like many young talent, he made his debut in a Disney Channel feature, "Go Figure" (2005), but quickly graduated to more mature fare with supporting roles in "Flash of Genius" (2008) and "The Lovely Bones" (2009). A turn as a violent criminal in the web series "Angel of Death" (Crackle, 2009) presaged his most widely seen turn as a vengeful demigod in "Lightning Thief," which secured his status as a bona fide teen heartthrob. Abel was soon a go-to young star for genre efforts like "I Am Number Four" (2011) and "The Host," director Andrew Niccol's adaptation of the science fiction novel by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer. Though neither were major hits, Abel's ascent continued unabated with "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" (2013). Abel's knack for landing roles in major young audience features underscored his place on the fast track to movie stardom.
