Biography

A gifted and sometimes eerily intense child performer, actor Lukas Haas spent the early part of his career literally growing up on camera, only to remove himself during his adolescent years and return to become an accomplished adult player in movies and on television. Haas began his career when he was just a child, appearing in "Testament" (1983) and "Love Thy Neighbor" (ABC, 1984) while barely in grade school. He had his breakout role at eight years old as an Amish boy who witnesses a murder in the big city in "Witness" (1985). From there, Haas delivered an emotionally impactful portrait of the real-life Ryan White, who contracted the AIDS from a blood transfusion and sparked a national debate, in "The Ryan White Story" (ABC, 1988). He began to grow up some in coming-of-age dramas like "Rambling Rose" (1991) and "Convicts" (1991) before he stepped away from the limelight to attend high school. Haas returned with parts in "Everyone Says I Love You" (1996) and "Mars Attacks!" (1996), and began appearing again on screens both big and small with regularity. On television, he landed episodes of "24" (Fox, 2001-2010) and "Criminal Minds" (CBS, 2005- ), while in features he was seen in "Brick" (2005), "Inception" (2010) and "Red Riding Hood" (2011). Despite being mostly a supporting player during his resurgence, Haas still demonstrated the promise he showed early in his career and was one of the few child actors to successfully segue to adulthood both on screen and off.
