Brandon William Jones[1] (born May 7, 1988) is an American actor, musician, and producer, best known for his role as Liam on the Fox series Lie to Me and his portrayal of Charlie Russell on the CBS series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Early life and career[edit]

Jones was born in the central Piedmont region of North Carolina. He was raised as an only child in the town of McLeansville by parents Kimberly and Reid Jones. At Northeast Guilford High School, Jones was involved in sports as a member of the football, track, and wrestling teams. In early 2009, Jones drove cross country from his East Coast home to move to Los Angeles and began acting soon after.[2]

Jones shot with photographer Bruce Weber for the 2010 Abercrombie & Fitch holiday campaign. He is also featured as the lead vocalist on the 2011 single "Wanna Be Known" by German electronic music duo York.[3]

In October 2011, it was announced that Jones would be joining CBS's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, playing the role of Charlie Russell, the son of D.B. Russell (played by Ted Danson).[4] E! Online reported in early August 2012 that Jones would guest star on ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars as the role of Andrew Campbell.[5] He appeared in the web series If I Can Dream alongside Justin Gaston.
