Born April 6, 1990, in West Chester, Penn., Charlie McDermott exhibited a keen interest in film from an early age, writing, directing and acting in his own films, which he often submitted in place of written assignments for school projects.

It came as little surprise, then, when at age 13 McDermott landed his first film role -- that of the boy who announces the creatures' presence to William Hurt in the M. Night Shyamalan chiller The Village (2004). From there, McDermott's acting career was off and running, with the young thespian being cast in the PBS comedy "Windy Acres" and then landing a leading role opposite Kris Kristofferson in Jay Craven's Disappearances (2006).

After moving to Los Angeles in 2006, McDermott continued to land plum roles in both film and television, receiving an Independent Spirit Award nod for his performance in the critically acclaimed indie drama Frozen River.
