Penn Badgley, born November 01, 1986 in Baltimore, Maryland, stars as Dan Humphrey in the new drama Gossip Girl
(CW, 2007-????), from Josh Schwartz (The O.C.), based on the tremendously popular book series about privileged teenagers
who attend an elite private school in New York City.
Badgley most recently starred in Tom Fontana's The Bedford Diaries (WB, 2006), opposite Matthew Modine and Milo Ventimiglia.
On film, he starred alongside Jesse Metcalfe and Brittany Snow in the hit comedy John Tucker Must Die (2006), and will next be
seen starring in the rugby-themed film Forever Strong (2007). His other film work includes the provocative yet acclaimed
independent feature The Fluffer (2001).
Badgley also played the lead in the Warren Littlefield-produced comedy series Do Over (WB, 2002). He then segued into McG's
drama series The Mountain (WB, 2004-2005), with Barbara Hershey and Oliver Hudson.
Though life began for Badgley in Baltimore, he split his formative years between Richmond, Virginia, and Seattle. It was there that he
became actively involved in the Seattle Children's Theater and voice-over work, Mario Golf 64 (Nintendo, 1999) and Mario Tennis 64
(Nintendo, 2000), that eventually lead he and his mother to Los Angeles, where he secured an agent.
Upon relocating, he landed a coveted guest star role on Will & Grace (NBC, 1998-2006). Shortly thereafter, recurring roles on The Young
and The Restless (CBS, 1973-????), The Brothers Garcia (Nickelodeon, 2000-2003) and Daddio (ABC, 2000) followed.
He also guest starred on What I Like About You (WB, 2002-2006).
When not honing his acting craft, Badgley attended Santa Monica Community College, having already completed his California High
School Proficiency Exam at age 14. He has deferred admission to University of Southern California until his work schedule will
permit him to return to school. In his spare time, he enjoys surfing, soccer, skiing, snowboarding, singing, and playing the guitar.
