Profile Bio Text
Born in Buffalo, New York, Chad when four or five years old, performed skits and sang made-up songs for his large family which includes three brothers, a half-brother and a sister. At age fifteen, a high school football injury landed him in a hospital where a nurse encouraged him to pursue a modeling career. Two years later, Chad won a scholarship from a modeling agency in Buffalo to attend a modeling convention in Orlando. There he met his destiny when an agent from Los Angeles spotted him and persuaded the seventeen-year-old to pursue his dream of acting after graduation from high school. In 1999, the aspiring actor headed for Hollywood where he supported himself modeling for such clients as Sketchers, Tommy Hilfiger, and Gucci while looking for a break. Soon after he arrived, Chad appeared in several guest-starring television roles including an episode of "Diagnosis Murder." Then he got the call he`d been hoping for. The WB`s "Gilmore Girls" was casting for the role of Tristan DuGrey. They were looking for someone who was likable and charismatic but with an edgy side, and someone who had that certain "IT" quality. Chad was all that plus he had the perfect physical characteristics that the show`s writers had in mind. The teenager won the role and has since made the character his own. Chad Michael Murray stars as Hilary Duff`s cyber love interest, Austin Ames, in A Cinderella Story. He currently stars on The WB`s One Tree Hill as Lucas Scott, a brooding intellectual whose skills on the basketball court are matched only by his growing attraction to the beautiful girlfriend of his half-brother. Murray`s previous television roles included playing the love interest for Katie Holmes and Michelle Williams on Dawson`s Creek and Rory`s overconfident classmate on Gilmore Girls. Other television credits include Aftermath with Meredith Baxter Birney and Robert Ulrich, and the title role in The WB`s The Lone Ranger. Chad`s upcoming projects include the lead in Joel Silver`s House Of Wax, opposite Elisha Cuthbert, currently in production. He recently co-starred in the critically acclaimed remake of Freaky Friday opposite Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan. He admires the talents of actors Ed Norton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Al Pacino and Robert DiNiro and uses their influences in his work. Always a firm believer in clean living, Chad is a natural athlete. He played his favorite sport, football, in high school and keeps fit by working out at the gym, inline skating, playing soccer, volleyball and basketball as well as football pick-up games. He is an anti-drug role model for kids and is active in charities for children and teens during his spare time. Still very single, Chad has set up house with a pug named Gus and a unique boisterous cat named Jack, who keep him from missing his large family too much.
Chad has English and German descent from his paternal side, his maternal side is undisclosed.
