Early life[edit]

Annable was born in Suffern, New York. He grew up in Walden, a village in New York, where he played baseball, rugby and hockey. His father is Christian and his mother is Jewish, and he was "raised both".[1][2]

Annable attended Valley Central High School and graduated in 1997. He attended college at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh (SUNY Plattsburgh). There, he became involved with the student-run TV station, Plattsburgh State Television (PSTV), working both on production behind the scenes and on the air as well. He hosted many shows at PSTV, including Late Night with Dave Annable, Cardinal Sports, and The Roommate Game. Annable credits Plattsburgh State Television for preparing him for his successful career in television. Annable dropped out of college in 2003 to pursue his acting career.[3]

After leaving SUNY Plattsburgh, Annable studied acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York with Richard Pinter.

Career[edit]

In 2002, Annable made his acting debut in an episode of the NBC crime drama Third Watch.[4] Annable has appeared in numerous commercials for brands such as Mountain Dew, Starburst and Abercrombie and Fitch.[5] In 2004, Annable appeared in the films Little Black Book and Spellbound.[6] In September 2005, Annable began appearing as Aaron Lewis on the Fox drama series Reunion, which centers on six friends who attend their 20th high school reunion, where one of them is murdered and all of them are suspects.[7] In December, Fox cancelled the series due to low ratings shortly after the ninth episode aired.[8] The WB reportedly showed interest in picking up the series on their network, but these plans never materialized.[9]

In 2006, Annable was cast as Justin Walker on the ABC drama series Brothers & Sisters alongside Calista Flockhart, Rachel Griffiths, and Sally Field, which was picked up for a full season by the network.[10][11] In 2007, Annable was ranked as #7 on People magazine's annual list of Sexiest Men Alive.[12] In 2008, Annable won a Prism Award for Best Performance in a Drama Series Multi-Episode Storyline for his portrayal on Brothers & Sisters.[13] The series ran for five seasons until 2011.[14]

In January 2012, Annable was confirmed to star as the male protagonist on the ABC supernatural drama series 666 Park Avenue alongside Rachael Taylor, Vanessa Williams and Robert Buckley, which was picked up for a first season of 13 episodes in May.[15][16][17] The series debuted in September only to be cancelled by November and removed from the network's schedule in December.[18][19] 666 Park Avenue returned to ABC in June 2013 to burn off its remaining episodes.

In 2014, Annable starred on the Fox series Red Band Society, where he played the role of pediatric oncologist and surgeon Dr. Adam McAndrew.[20] In 2016, he appeared as Pierce Harris on the NBC medical drama Heartbeat alongside Melissa George and Don Hany.[21][22] Both series were also cancelled after one season.

On April 5, 2016, it was announced that Annable joined the WWE action film Temple alongside Wesley Snipes and Anne Heche.[23]

Personal life[edit]

Annable had a relationship with his Brothers & Sisters co-star Emily VanCamp beginning in 2007, who later became his love interest on the series. He married Odette Yustman on October 10, 2010, who was also a love interest of Annable's character on the final season of Brothers & Sisters.[24] They have one child, daughter Charlie Mae, born on September 7, 2015.[25]

Five years after dropping out of college, Annable earned his diploma from SUNY Plattsburgh on May 16, 2009. In addition to earning his degree, Annable was awarded the "Off To A Good Start" award and gave a commencement address to his fellow Class of 2009 graduates. Completing college was a promise he made to his mother.[3][26]
