Austin Butler was discovered walking around the Orange County Fair when he was 13 years old. Sure, the management company that approached him specialized in "background acting", but hey--you gotta start somewhere. Austin made his debut as a featured extra on Nickelodeon's Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide (2005-2007); he's been working his way up through the entertainment industry ever since, from his first speaking role on an episode of Zoey 101 in 2005 to featured roles on nearly every series in the Disney teen machine, from Hannah Montana (2006) to iCarly (2007) to Wizards of Waverly Place (2010). Now Austin's an in-demand actor who's dating Vanessa Hudgens and close friends with fellow former child stars like Ashley Tisdale and Alexa Vega. He's even being asked to take his shirt off on screen, like he did in a recent episode of The Carrie Diaries (2013-2014). He's certainly not in the background any more!
