Early life[edit]

Prior to meeting each other, White's parents had both moved to New York City to pursue careers in acting, his mother from North Carolina.[2] After meeting, performing on stage together for several years, and marrying, the couple ended their acting careers and obtained jobs that would help them support their new family.

Throughout elementary school White was a dancer, specifically ballet, jazz, and tap. At the age of 13 upon entering a new middle school dance program he had a change of heart and decided to pursue acting.[3] White got the job to play Phillip "Lip" Gallagher on Shameless right out of high school.[4]
