Early life

North was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. Later, he and his family relocated to Atlanta, Georgia.[6]


At the age of fifteen, North began his professional acting career in 2011, when he appeared in several guest star roles in TV Series, including Kickin' It, General Hospital, A.N.T. Farm, Jessie and See Dad Run.[7][8][9]

In 2014, North was cast to play the main role in the Disney Channel original series I Didn't Do It opposite Olivia Holt, Piper Curda, Peyton Clark and Sarah Gilman, in which he played the main role of Logan Watson.[10][11][12]

In 2018, North was cast to play the main role in the teen comedy streaming series All Night, in which he played the main role of Oz, created by Jason Ubaldi that premiered on May 11, 2018, on Hulu.[13][14][15]

In 2020, North was cast to play the main role in the teen drama Outer Banks opposite Chase Stokes, Madelyn Cline, Madison Bailey, Jonathan Daviss, Rudy Pankow and Drew Starkey, which he played the antagonist role as Topper, created by Josh Pate, Jonas Pate, and Shannon Burke that premiered on Netflix on April 15, 2020.[16][17][18]

In 2023, North made his film debut in the romantic drama film Beautiful Disaster starring Dylan Sprouse and Virginia Gardner, based on Jamie McGuire's 2011 new adult novel of the same name, which was released on April 12, 2023, in which he played role of Shepley Maddox.[19][20]

Personal life


In 2018 North dated reality television star Sadie Robertson from Duck Dynasty for four months.[21] After Robertson broke up with North, she said, “We broke up. He’s an amazing guy and I wish him all the best. We’re friends. It just didn’t work out. He actually just texted me the other day and said he was thinking about me and I think that’s beautiful. That’s how it should be.”[22]

Alleged assault and subsequent arrest

On 13 February 2024, North was arrested after he allegedly attacked Las Vegas Hospital employees. He allegedly assaulted several nurses and a phlebotomist after entering the emergency room. He was taken into custody and booked for gross misdemeanor battery and was subsequently released on bail.[23]

On 15 February 2024, North addressed the incident on Instagram Story stating:

"I am deeply upset by the events that took place in Las Vegas this past week. My friend drove me to the hospital because I thought I was having a heart attack. Several tests were taken, including blood, which came back negative for any drugs or alcohol in my system. I was having a severe anxiety attack. I have very little memory of the events that day at the hospital. I have the utmost respect for healthcare workers and hospital staff. I have battled anxiety on and off for years and this was the most extreme panic attack I've ever had. Going forward, I hope to shed light on this debilitating disorder and send hope to those who have also struggled."[23]
