Lucas Daniel Till was born in Fort Hood, Texas, to Dana Lyn (Brady) and John Mark Till, a lieutenant colonel in the army. He spent most of his childhood growing up in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. At a very young age, Lucas’ family quickly noticed that he had an affinity for impersonating voices and characters. When he was 11 years old, his mother enrolled him in local acting classes, and it wasn’t long before he was discovered by Atlanta agent, Joy Pervis.
Lucas began booking almost immediately in print, local, regional, and national commercials. Soon after, he was cast in his first movie role as “Harry Vanderbilt” in The Adventures of Ociee Nash, starring Keith Carradine and Mare Winningham. He was a natural for film roles and continued his success by landing his first co-starring role in Lightning Bug with Laura Prepon and Brett Harrison.
Lucas made his first trip to Los Angeles when he was 13 years old. Shortly after returning to Atlanta, he booked the sought after role of “Jack Cash”, older brother of Johnny Cash, in the Oscar award winning biopic, Walk the Line, directed by James Mangold, produced by Cathy Konrad, starring Reese Witherspoon and Joaquin Phoenix.
With high school quickly approaching, Lucas made the decision to stay in Atlanta to attend and experience public high school. He continued acting and was cast in movies for Lifetime Television and several independent features including Dance of the Dead, which was directed by Gregg Bishop and hand-picked by director Sam Raimi for distribution through Lionsgate and Ghost House Pictures.
Three weeks before graduating high school with honors, Lucas auditioned for Disney’s Hannah Montana: The Movie and was cast in the lead role of Travis Brody. After only one week on the set, Lucas flew back to Atlanta to graduate with his high school class of 2008.
Lucas has gone on to star in television series House M.D., Medium, Blue Mountain State, and the lead role in MacGyver, for CBS. Other feature film credits include Battle Los Angeles, X-Men: First Class, Stoker, Crush, Paranoia, X-Men: Days of Futures Past, X-Men: Apocalypse, Son of the South, and many more!
