Noah Gray-Cabey was only 6 years old when he first appeared on the Oprah Show stage as a remarkable young pianist. Today, he's more likely to be found in front of the camera than behind a piano. He's appeared on hit TV shows like Grey's Anatomy and Heroes and says he owes it all to Oprah! "After I was on, the casting director from the show My Wife and Kids called me and wanted me to be on the show for a guest appearance," he says. "That's actually how I got into acting."
At 13, Noah says he still plays the piano, but between acting and school he doesn't have much time for practicing. Noah plans to graduate high school at age 15. "My friends love to tease me about the fact that I won't be able to drive until I'm a sophomore in college," he says.
The one downside of being so ahead of his time might be his dating pool. "If I want to date a girl in my own class, they're 16 years old," he says. "There's a little bit of an age difference. But I still do all right."
