Who Is ‘Shameless’ Actor Jeremy Allen White’s Wife?
Shameless is entering its 11th and final season, and fans will be very sad to see it go. The dark comedy has received over 40 award nominations since 2011, and has a loyal fan following. The show’s success is largely due to its phenomenal cast of talented actors, including the young Jeremy Allen White.
Jeremy Allen White’s performance as one of the deranged Gallagher siblings has continued to stun the audience throughout the past decade. His character continues to grow as White perfects his talents, and fans can’t wait to see what he’ll bring us in the future. Outside the Shameless set, White is a happily married man with a beautiful wife and adorable children.
Who is Jeremy Allen White?
Jeremy Allen White is well-known for his work in the comedy-drama, Shameless. He also appeared in season one of Homecoming, a thriller about a mysterious live-in facility for former soldiers.
Acting runs in White’s family–both of his parents were performed on stage in various New York theaters. Although they had a love for the theater, the couple gave up their acting pursuits to focus on raising a family. White and his younger sister grew up in Brooklyn.
The actor was not a fan of school, and spent as little time there as possible. In high school, he worked at Susan Shopmaker Casting for half his day, attending classes in the morning and working in the afternoon. It was this connection that helped White land a role in the 2008 film, Afterschool.
In addition to Shameless and Homecoming, White starred in the indie romance film, After Everything. He played a 23-year-old whose life is turned upside-down when he receives an unexpected medical diagnosis.
Who does he play in ‘Shameless’?
White auditioned for both the roles of Lip and Ian in Shameless, but ultimately ended up playing Lip Gallagher (short for Philip). Lip is the second oldest of the siblings in the dysfunctional Gallagher family. The series takes place in South Side neighborhood in Chicago, where the large Gallagher brood gets into all sorts of trouble.
Lip Gallagher is incredibly intelligent, and a straight-A student with an impressive GPA. He uses his high intelligence to craft various schemes to make some easy money for his family, including selling beer and weed from an ice cream truck. He may be very smart, but he is seriously lacking in good judgment.
Lip spends most of his time smoking weed, sleeping with numerous women, and drinking. He is a cynic with a smart mouth and a juvenile record, which certainly doesn’t help matters. He is protective of his younger siblings, and has a close relationship with his cousin, Ian.
Although Ian is involved in criminal activities with him, Lip often covers for Ian, so he can one day join the military.
Is White married?
White is married to his longtime sweetheart, Addison Timlin. Timlin is an actress who has appeared in several television shows and films, including the Showtime series, Californication. She portrayed Sasha Bingham, a young actress who develops an interest in David Duchovny’s character, Hank.
Timlin started her acting career on the stage, touring with Annie. The budding star played every orphan in the show before finally shining in the lead role at just nine years old. She continued to perform in several Annie productions, eventually making her way to Broadway. On Broadway, she played Baby Louise in Gypsy, working alongside the legendary Bernadette Peters.
White and Timlin announced their engagement in April 2019 and were married in October. The couple has two daughters–Ezer, born in 2018, and Dolores, born in 2020. Timlin is also a very good friend of Dakota Fanning, who happens to be Ezer’s godmother.
