Jared S. Gilmore has his twin sister, Taylor, to thank for his introduction to acting. As a child, Taylor enjoyed modeling and acting and put on shows for the family. When Jared and Taylor were five years old, their parents decided to find an agent for Taylor and brought Jared along for the ride. When they met the agents, it turned out they were interested not only in Taylor but in Jared, as well. Many auditions soon followed.
As fate would have it, Taylor came to the realization that she liked riding horses more than acting and decided to quit the business. But Jared continued his quest, landing his first job modeling t-shirts and doing commercials. This led to roles in both television and film. He recurred in the series “Mad Men” as Don Draper’s son, ‘Bobby,’ as well as in “Hawthorne” and “Talkshow with Spike Feresten,” and guest starred on “Men of a Certain Age,” “Roommates,” “Without a Trace” and “Passions.” On the big screen he starred in “A Nanny for Christmas,” “The Back-Up Plan,” with Jennifer Lopez, “Opposite Day” and “Overnight.”
In his spare time, Jared likes playing Xbox and computer games with his friends, or playing with his beloved pets- dogs Emma and Paisley; a cat named Lily; and three horse: Sandra Lee, Penny, and Forest. His love for animals inspired Jared to become involved with Peta2, and he was featured in a 2013 campaign. His other charity of choice is Rocking Horse Ranch -- www.RockingHorseRanch.org -- which helps youth and young adults who have suffered abuse, trauma, neglect and other hardships by pairing them with horses who have themselves been rescued out of abuse and other life-threatening situations
Now that Jared is in his teens, he is excited about expanding his breadth as an actor and would one day love to venture into writing and directing. He aspires to now day do all three.
