Early life[edit]

Parker Croft was born in Burlington, Vermont and raised in Northern Vermont. His mother, Juliet McVicker, is a jazz singer; his father, Parker Hendrick Croft, Jr., is an architect, and a painter. Children's theater was Parker’s introduction to acting in 1994, at the age of seven. Soon after, he began working with the Vermont Stage Company.

Prior to his graduation from the White Mountain School, Parker received a scholarship to the Perry Mansfield School for the Performing Arts, a summer school for aspiring teen actors.

One year later he appeared as the gay bashing bully Cooper in Were the World Mine (2008), an independent musical film, based on A Midsummer Night's Dream, in which he sang for the soundtrack.

Parker's television debut was on the FX show Nip/Tuck as Enigma.[1] From his performance in Nip/Tuck Parker was offered a role in Nuclear Family (2010) alongside Ray Wise and Corin Nemec.

Parker’s television credits include the FX pilot Back Nine (Creator Jason Filardi), the NBC pilot 1600 Penn, and the Gigapix pilot Adult Life (Creator Conrad Jackson)
