Early life

Jeremy Allen White was born in the Brooklyn borough of New York City on February 17, 1991,[1] to parents Eloise Ziegler and Richard White.[2] He grew up in Brooklyn's Carroll Gardens neighborhood.[1] His mother is from North Carolina.[3] Throughout elementary school, White was a dancer who performed ballet, jazz, and tap dance. Upon entering a new middle school dance program at the age of 13, he decided to pursue acting.[4] He attended the Professional Performing Arts School in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan.

Career

White had his first acting roles in 2006, first in the film Beautiful Ohio and then in the series Conviction.[5] In 2011, he landed his breakout role as Phillip "Lip" Gallagher on the Showtime series Shameless.[6] He also appeared in Homecoming in 2018.[5]

In 2022, White was cast in the lead role of the Hulu series The Bear. He plays the troubled but brilliant New York chef Carmen "Carmy" Berzatto, who returns to his hometown of Chicago to save his deceased brother's failing restaurant. To prepare for the role, he attended classes at the Institute of Culinary Education alongside his co-star Ayo Edebiri.[7] The role has won him a Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series, two Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy, and a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series. He won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series in 2023.[8]

Other ventures

In January 2024, White became a global ambassador for Calvin Klein underwear.[9] For its online campaign, he wore the brand's Spring 2024 men's underwear collection, and the advertisement generated $12.7 million in media impact value in less than 48 hours.[10]
