Austin Butler is an actor and singer. He is known for his roles as James "Wilke" Wilkerson in Switched at Birth, Jordan Gallagher on Ruby & The Rockits, and Sebastian Kydd in The Carrie Diaries.
When Austin was thirteen, he was approached by a representative from a background-acting management company at the Orange County Fair who helped him get started in the entertainment industry. He enjoyed it and soon began taking acting classes.
In 2005, after working as an extra on several television shows, he landed his first regular job as a background actor playing the role of Lionel Scranton for two seasons on Nickelodeon's Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide. His friend on the show, Lindsey Shaw, introduced him to her manager, who immediately offered to represent him, and from that point on, Butler began taking acting seriously as a career.
Austin landed a guest starring role on the Disney Channel series Hannah Montana playing the role of Derek Hanson, and that same year, he portrayed Jake Krandle in the episode "iLike Jake" on the Nickelodeon series iCarly. Butler landed a recurring role on the show Zoey 101 playing James Garrett, the love interest of Jamie Lynn Spears's title character Zoey in 2008.
Butler appeared in the starring role of Jordan Gallagher on the popular, but short-lived ABC Family series Ruby & The Rockits, alongside David Cassidy, Patrick Cassidy and Alexa Vega.
He booked the role of Wilke on the ABC Family series Switched at Birth, debuting in 2011. At the beginning of 2012, he was cast in The CW's Sex and the City prequel series, The Carrie Diaries, to play Sebastian Kydd, the love interest of high school-aged Carrie Bradshaw, played by AnnaSophia Robb. The Carrie Diaries is based on Candace Bushnell's novel by the same name and follows Bradshaw's life in the 1980s as a teenager in New York City.
He made his Broadway debut playing Don Parritt, the "lost boy" in The Iceman Cometh. Previews for the limited run began on March 26, 2018 and the play closed on July 1, 2018.
He starred in Jim Jarmusch's zombie film The Dead Don't Die and Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.
