Bio

Jeremy London is an American actor best known for his television roles as Nathan Bedford in I'll Fly Away (1991-1994), as Griffin Holbrook in Party of Five (1995-2000), and as Chandler Hampton in 7th Heaven, from 2002-2004.

London was born in San Diego, California to Frank London, a construction worker, and Debborah Osborn, a waitress. He was raised mainly in DeSoto, Texas.

After divorcing their father, his mother moved the family 13 times in six years. His identical twin brother, Jason, is older by 27 minutes and is also an actor.

Jeremy has worked mostly in television while Jason has opted for a career in feature films. The two have only acted alongside each other once - in the February 3, 2003 episode of the WB's 7th Heaven, entitled "Smoking".

They have also competed for the same role - Jeremy's first audition was for a part in the 1991 film The Man in the Moon, which Jason got, leaving Jeremy the part of his brother's stunt double.

His first major television role was playing Nathan on the critically acclaimed 1991-1993 drama series I'll Fly Away. His brother Jason stepped in for Jeremy for the final episode of the show.

In 1997 he joined the cast of the hit FOX series Party Of Five, playing Griffin for two seasons. He then went on to play a young minister named Chandler Hampton on 7th Heaven from 2002 to 2004.

His 7th Heaven character had a father with lung cancer, much like Jeremy's real-life family members.

He has since been in many TV serials, TV movies and feature films.

He is also well known for playing T.S. Quint in Kevin Smith's second film Mallrats. He is also notable for never having appeared in another Smith movie, which is unusual for an actor who plays a main character in a Kevin Smith movie.

When asked about this, Smith replied that he "just never had another use for him." However, rumour has it that it London's unreliability that prevented further collaborations.

During the 10th anniversary Q&A of Mallrats, in which the two reunited, London admitted to being under the influence of marijuana throughout the filming of the movie, a fact that is also mentioned on the DVD commentary of the film.

London's younger sister Deidre was killed in a car accident in 1992, leaving behind a baby son. Following the loss of family members to cancer of the lungs, he directed a documentary about the hazards of smoking.

He was arrested in the spring of 2004 for allegedly driving with a suspended license and for carrying controlled substances.

He currently resides in West Hills, California and is married to Melissa Cunningham with child Lyric London.
