Thomas Dekker Bio

These days most people know Thomas Dekker as Adam from the CW’s new witch-themed hit show The Secret Circle, but the 23-year-old actor has been in the biz since he was six years old. Find out how he got his start in his Kidzworld Bio!

Performing Parents

Thomas Dekker was born to stage parents, literally! His mother, who comes from Wales, is a concert pianist, actor and singer and his father (who has now passed away) was an artist, opera singer and actor. It’s safe to say that he has music and performance in his veins. Although he was born in Las Vegas, Nevada, Thomas grew up all over the world, spending time in Europe, Canada and the States.

Cartoon Kid

Thomas first broke into acting when he was just six years old, scoring a role in the soap opera The Young and the Restless. He also appeared in Star Trek Generations and became a regular on the Disney TV show Honey I Shrunk the Kids: The TV Show. He guest starred on many popular TV shows, and also did the voices for characters in animated films like The Land Before Time V-XI and An American Tale: The Treasure of Manhattan Island. He won Young Artist Awards for both his performance on Honey I Shrunk the Kids and his voice over for An American Tale: The Mystery of the Night Monster.

Music or Movies

While living in Canada as a teen, Thomas started honing his musical skills and by age 10 was already writing songs and composing music which he later branded “electrofolk” for its classic and electronic influences. He signed a record deal at age 15 but felt that he didn’t have enough control over his music and abandoned it for the silver screen again. Thomas landed a role on the supernatural series Heroes and then on The Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It wasn’t long until the film directors came knocking. In 2009 he was in the thriller From Within alongside stars like Alec Baldwin and Cameron Diaz.

Scary Movies to Secret Circle

The supernatural and scary roles kept coming for Thomas. He had roles in a few scary films like Nightmare on Elm Street, Laid to Rest and All About Evil. He went on to star in the true life story of the first family to be in a reality series in the ‘70’s, called An American Family, in early 2011. But by the fall he was back to the supernatural, starring on the CW’s The Secret Circle as a member of a coven of witches.

Did You Know...

  • Thomas didn’t give up music entirely. His album Psyanotic is available for download on iTunes.
  • During his teen years Thomas was involved in the underground metal scene in Las Vegas.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
