Devon Gummersall (born October 15, 1978) is an American actor, writer, and television and film director best known for his role as Brian Krakow on ABC's My So-Called Life.

Life and career[edit]

Gummersall was born in Durango, Colorado, the son of visual artist C. Gregory Gummersall. He has lived in Los Angeles since the age of 10 and began acting at the age of 13. His first major performance was as a guest star on the television series Dream On. In 1994, he was cast as Brian Krakow in the highly acclaimed ABC series My So-Called Life. He played Zach during the first season of the hit show Felicity. He was cast in the television series The Fugitive in 2000. Gummersall also played Sean de Luca in the TV show Roswell and starred opposite Lili Taylor in the Lifetime series State of Mind (2006) and has continued to appear in independent films such as The Anarchist Cookbook and Tripping Tommy (2010). His more recent TV credits include Private Practice, Drop Dead Diva, The Gates, The Mentalist, Mad Men, Criminal Minds and The Last Ship.

Intrigued by visual storytelling, Gummersall began his journey to the other side of the camera early in his career. He has since worked on staff and penned several episodes of Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick's web/NBC series quarterlife. He filmed, edited, and directed the music documentary Lawn Chairs and Living Rooms and directed the award-winning short films Bullies On Vacation and PORK...a short film. He wrote and directed the indie feature Low Fidelity (released by Amplify in 2013) and directed his second feature in 2014, the indie thriller The Inherited, starring Nathan Darrow (House of Cards) and Annabella Sciorra. In addition to his film work, Gummersall co-founded the LA-based theater ensemble The Piece Project and directed the West Coast premiere of Bekah Brunstetter’s Drunk for the IAMA theater company. He was a member of the 2014-2016 ABC/Disney/DGA Director Program.
