Thomas McDonell’s Bio (Age)

The gifted actor and artist was born on May 2, 1986, in Manhattan, as Thomas Hunter Campbell McDonell. He is of Swedish, Scottish, and Ashkenazi Jewish descent. He had a pretty comfortable childhood. When he was only three, he and his brother had to live with their mother’s family in New York because their parent’s marriage was under a lot of stress. Their parents thought it wise not to have the children around while they were working through the difficult aspects of their marriage. However, after the dust settled, Thomas and his brother went to live with their parents in Andover, Massachusetts.

McDonell attended boarding school there. He belonged to the drama and hockey team, showing great promise in both until an injury in 8th grade forced him to quit playing the sport. His leg took months to heal properly, during which Thomas devoted himself to acting. He starred in plays and musicals at church and in school. He also sang in the choir and learned to play various musical instruments, but took a special liking to the guitar. After he completed high school in 2003, he went off to New York University to study Fine Arts as a theatre major.

Following his college graduation, Thomas McDonell decided to pursue a career as an actor. He made his debut in 2008, in the movie The Forbidden Kingdom, which starred Jackie Chan and Jet Li. He then featured in Twelve, Prom, and in an episode of the television series Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Thomas also appeared in Fun Size, Dark Shadows, Suburgatory, Life After Beth, I’m Obsessed with You, The Long Road Home, and LA to Las Vegas. His other appearances on film and television include roles in 10 Things I Hate About Life, Where the Devil Hides, The 100, and Good Girls.
