Actor Noah Galvin cut his teeth on various off-Broadway productions before moving into television with a leading role as gay teenager Kenny O'Neal in family comedy "The Real O'Neals" (ABC, 2016-). Born in Katonah, NY in 1994, Galvin began his on-stage career at the age of ten when he joined the Bedford Community Theatre and went onto appear in productions at the likes of the New York Theater Workshop, Barrow Street Theatre and The Wild Project throughout his teens including "The Power of Birds" alongside his actress sister Emma. Galvin made his on-screen debut playing Jackson, the conflicted son of a bounty hunter, in time travel short film "Promised Land" (2013), and shortly after appeared as Leif Bornwell III, one of two teenagers who attempt to discover the mysteries of a New York high-rise in "Welcome to the Wayne" (2014). Galvin achieved his big break in 2015 when he was cast as Kenny, the middle child whose coming out confession disrupts his Irish Catholic family's picture perfect facade, in Dan Savage's semi-autobiographical sitcom "The Real O'Neals" (ABC, 2016). The openly gay Galvin also became a proud spokesperson for the show when it sparked protests from right-wing religious groups over its 'anti-Christian' message.
