Tyler Lepley grew up as an only child in a rough neighborhood in Philadelphia. Having participated in athletics from a young age, Tyler was a three-sport star at Central Bucks High School West, competing in basketball, track and football. Tyler also played collegiate football at Kutztown University, where he was a starting running back for two years. He graduated from Kutztown with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice.
Upon graduation, he moved to Los Angeles, unsure of what lay ahead but wanting a change and on a quest for more. He began a career in personal training. One day, he was approached by a producer who loved his look and personality and thought he could be right for a role in an upcoming film. Tyler auditioned for the part and booked his first role in an independent feature.
After that, his passion for acting began to flourish. He knew he had found his calling and began to cultivate and hone his craft. He began taking numerous acting classes, acquired an agent and manager, and the opportunities came with abundance. With talent, the right tools, advice and team, his journey had begun.
Next up he is elated to be a part of Tyler Perry's The Haves and the Have Nots, which shoots in Atlanta. He has recently appeared on 90210 and can be seen in other films such as Baggage Claim with Taye Diggs, Paula Patton, Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Derek Luke, as well as Hollywood Chaos with Vanessa Simmons and Tangi Miller. He continues to study hard and appreciate his craft while growing as an actor and artist.
