Drew Van Acker is perhaps best known for his series regular role in “Devious Maids” and his recurring role in “Pretty Little Liars.” Also, he voiced the character of Ian Archer as a series lead on Cartoon Network’s “Tower Prep.” Van Acker’s additional television credits include guest-starring roles in “Greek” and “Castle.”
Van Acker had his first taste of acting in his high school drama class, which sparked an immediate passion for both the stage and the screen. Due to a demanding sports schedule playing forward on both the soccer and lacrosse teams, he was forced to put his new career aspirations on hold. Ultimately, his dedication led his soccer team to back-to-back state championships, and landed him a soccer scholarship to Towson University.
While attending Towson, Van Acker took two theater courses and determined that he wanted to refocus his attention on his acting career.
Van Acker is a fan of all Philadelphia sports teams, including the Eagles, Phillies, 76ers and Flyers.
A native of Medford, NJ, Van Acker lives in Los Angeles. Follow him on Twitter @_Drew_Van_Acker. His birthday is April 2.
