Jared Padalecki was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, and developed an interest in acting in middle school when he began taking drama classes and performing in school plays. During high school, he competed in drama competitions, garnering regional, state and even national awards. He won the 2000 Presidential Scholar Award for the National Foundation for Advancement of the Arts in the theater competition that had over 7,000 entrants.

It was another national talent search that sent Padalecki on a fateful trip to Hollywood. He auditioned in a local Planet Hollywood and won the chance to be a trophy presenter for the first Teen Choice Awards. The summer before his senior year of high school, Padalecki appeared on the awards show and caught the attention of a talent manager. After graduating high school, he came out to Los Angeles and that summer landed the role on "Gilmore Girls." On TV, he also recently landed the coveted role of Macgyver for the WB network.

He currently lives in L.A and has been dating actress Sandra McCoy since January. He is also good friends with Chad Michael Murray!
