Bradley Steven Perry, born on November 23, 1998, has been working in entertainment for close to a decade, and he’s nowhere near done! Well-known for his role as Gabriel “Gabe” Duncan in the Disney Channel comedy “Good Luck Charlie,” Perry has also acted in films and other television shows, including “Mighty Med,” “Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure,” “Old Dogs”, and “Opposite Day.” He recently graduated from university and has jumped back into the acting fray.
Since childhood, Bradley Steven Perry has been a part of the exalted group of young actors who call Disney their home. He joined the likes of Zendaya and Selena Gomez, and before them, Hillary Duff and Raven-Symoné, among others, who have worked on Disney Channel in their youth.
Perry didn’t start at Disney, however. At eight, he was doing small roles in movies like “Choose Connor,” “Magnificent Max,” “The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard,” “Opposite Day,” and “Old Dogs,” and the CBS show “Without a Trace.” His big break came in 2010 when he was chosen to star in Disney’s “Good Luck Charlie.” It made him instantly famous, and the show was a big hit, being renewed for four seasons and a movie. He went on to star in another Disney Channel show, “Mighty Med,” before moving on to voice a character in the animated “Descendants: Wicked World” series.
Just as people are invested in his career, they’re even more invested in his personal life. The media have also fed this frenzy, often linking him to various co-stars including Sarah Gilman and Paris Berelc. Perry has denied them all as rumors, only confirming a relationship with one actor, fellow child star Sabrina Carpenter, whom he dated between 2014 and 2015.
The California native had been living his best life when he decided to apply for college. He hadn’t attended high school and was homeschooled on the sets of his first Disney show, a factor that prompted his decision to attend college. As he says, it was less about getting a degree and more about experiencing college life and interacting with like-minded people outside of work. College was also where he met his current girlfriend, Carley Williams, a social media star. The actor finds her lack of association with showbiz refreshing, as he’s said in interviews.
Professionally, Perry is auditioning for various roles even as he continues to support many child-based charities including Mattel Children’s Hospital, Toys for Tots, and Make-a-Wish Foundation.
