Austin Butler

Austin Butler was born on the west coast in a small town in Orange County, California. His artistic talents were noticed at the young age of 13, quickly distinguishing himself in music and modeling. With his angelic looks, he made his debut on the TV show "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide" and appeared in several popular series among pre-teens and teenagers, including "Hannah Montana" with Miley Cyrus, "Zoey 101" with Jamie Lynn Spears, and "iCarly."
In 2009, Butler made his big screen debut in "Aliens in the Attic," where he faced a comical alien invasion alongside Ashley Tisdale, then a star with young audiences due to the "High School Musical" series. His television career continued to flourish with appearances in shows such as "Ruby & the Rockits," "Wizards of Waverly Place," "Jonas," and "CSI: Miami" and "CSI: NY." In the early 2010s, he landed recurring roles in series like "Life Unexpected," where he played Britt Robertson's boyfriend, the first season of "Switched at Birth" as the rebel teenager Wilke, and "The Carrie Diaries," a prequel to "Sex and the City," where he portrayed Sebastian, Carrie Bradshaw’s first love.
After a few episodes on "Arrow," his career progressed in 2016 with a leading role in the television adaptation of Terry Brooks' heroic fantasy bestsellers, "The Shannara Chronicles." Set between "Game of Thrones," "The Hunger Games," and "The Lord of the Rings," Butler played Wil Ohmsford, a half-elf, half-human destined to save the kingdom of the Four Lands from formidable demons. As an apprentice healer with inherited magical powers, he had to learn to master his gift to combat dark and evil forces.
Following the end of the series after two seasons, Butler's film career blossomed. In 2019, he worked with two major filmmakers: Jim Jarmusch and Quentin Tarantino. In Jarmusch's zombie comedy "The Dead Don’t Die," he played a hipster friend of Selena Gomez, and in Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood," he portrayed Charles "Tex" Watson, a key member of Charles Manson's cult involved in the murder of Sharon Tate.
In 2022, at the age of 30, Butler took on what could be the role of his life as Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann's biopic "Elvis," which chronicles the rock 'n' roll star's journey over three decades. His performance received rave reviews at the Cannes Film Festival, where the film was presented out of competition. He later appeared as a member of a motorcycle gang in "The Bikeriders" (2023) and as a brave squadron leader in the series "Masters of the Air" (2024). Also in 2024, Butler took on the role of the cruel Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen, nephew of Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, in "Dune: Part Two."
