If you’ve heard of Rhett & Link then you definitely know that Charles Lincoln Link Neal III is the geeky-looking better half of the internet duo. To his fans and those close to him, Link is funny in an awkward way, a control freak and someone who is prone to gagging and retching when his palate is being introduced to an unfamiliar or strange food.
Link Neal: Biography, Age
The Link was born on the 1st of June 1978. He was born in Boone Trail, North Carolina to his parents Charles Lincoln II and Sue Capps. Sadly, his parents got divorced when he was just two years old. Sue then got married to her high school sweetheart Jimmy Capps and got custody of Neal. After the marriage, both Neal, his mother Sue, and his stepfather moved to Buies Creek.
In grade school, Link made a friend that changed the trajectory of his life, that friend was Rhett McLaughlin. The pair first hooked up in first grade when they were asked to color mystical creatures and beasts together, this was the beginning of a lifelong friendship which would last over 30+ years. Soon the duo realized they had a mutual affinity towards pranks. Link once called his friendship with Rhett a relationship similar to fraternal twins who were similarly separated at birth.
The bromance between Link and Rhett filtered into their educational background, the pair went to the same elementary school, Buies Creek Elementary, the same middle and high school, Harnett Central High School. They didn’t stop there and were both accepted into the North Carolina State University where they were unsurprisingly roommates.
Link and Rhett have shared every experience together, but it was when they were aged fourteen that they began their first creative endeavor by writing a screenplay for a movie called Gutless Wonders. They have shared various memories together which included multiple near-death experiences, camping trips, first jobs and strangely enough, they had the same first and second girlfriend, Leslie and Amber. The friends were said to have signed written contract to do something big together but unfortunately, two years later, Link lost the contract along with his wallet.
Neal graduated from North Carolina State University with a degree in Industrial Engineering in 2000.
