Born and raised in Ann Arbor Michigan, Jack Falahee began to think about acting professionally when he was in his high school production of "High School Musical" and attracted the attention of an acting student who encouraged Falahee to pursue acting at college. Falahee attended NYU and remained in New York for a few years, appearing in a few student films and shorts before landing a guest role on an episode of "The Carrie Diaries" (CW, 2013-14). He made an appearance in the Nicolas Cage film "Rage" (2014), followed by his first recurring TV role in the ABC Family drama "Twisted" (ABC Family, 2013-14). Although he only appeared in the eight episodes of second half of the series' only season, Falahee's character, Charlie McBride, a former juvenile hall cell mate of series lead character Danny Desay, became central to the unfolding melodrama. Shortly after it was announced that "Twisted" would not be renewed, Falahee made his debut on Shonda Rhimes' "How to Get Away with Murder" (ABC, 2014-). As one of five associates playing against Academy Award winner Viola Davis on a show from superstar producer Rimes, Falahee had by far his largest exposure to date: the show's premiere was watched live by over 14 million viewers. Falahee's sexually rapacious law student Connor Walsh, was one of the show's earliest breakout characters.
