Shameless is entering its 11th and final season, and fans will be very sad to see it go. The dark comedy has received over 40 award nominations since 2011, and has a loyal fan following. The show’s success is largely due to its phenomenal cast of talented actors, including the young Jeremy Allen White.
Jeremy Allen White’s performance as one of the deranged Gallagher siblings has continued to stun the audience throughout the past decade. His character continues to grow as White perfects his talents, and fans can’t wait to see what he’ll bring us in the future. Outside the Shameless set, White is a happily married man with a beautiful wife and adorable children.

Jeremy Allen White is well-known for his work in the comedy-drama, Shameless. He also appeared in season one of Homecoming, a thriller about a mysterious live-in facility for former soldiers.
Acting runs in White’s family–both of his parents were performed on stage in various New York theaters. Although they had a love for the theater, the couple gave up their acting pursuits to focus on raising a family. White and his younger sister grew up in Brooklyn.
The actor was not a fan of school, and spent as little time there as possible. In high school, he worked at Susan Shopmaker Casting for half his day, attending classes in the morning and working in the afternoon. It was this connection that helped White land a role in the 2008 film, Afterschool.
In addition to Shameless and Homecoming, White starred in the indie romance film, After Everything. He played a 23-year-old whose life is turned upside-down when he receives an unexpected medical diagnosis.
