Noah Galvin can be seen playing the young lead, Kenny O’Neal, in ABC’s comedy “The Real O’Neals.” The show revolves around the O’Neals, a seemingly perfect All-American Irish-Catholic family. When the youngest son, Kenny (Galvin), comes out of the closet, other family members’ surprising truths are revealed. Instead of ruining their family, the honesty triggers a new, messier chapter where everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being themselves. Galvin stars opposite Martha Plimpton and Jay R. Ferguson, who play his parents on the show, which is produced by Dan Savage. The show premiered on March 2, 2016.
“The Real O’Neals” was touted as ABC’s winning new comedy due to its imaginative sequences and stellar cast, with Galvin deemed one of the most “…likeable and entertaining fictional teenagers on TV” by Entertainment Weekly. The show is currently in it’s second season.
Galvin is most proud of his critically acclaimed work off-Broadway at theaters such as The Signature, Playwrights Horizons, MCC, The Vineyard, and many others. He is a recipient of Audiofile Magazine’s Earphones Award for his narration of Hollis Seamon’s novel “Somebody Up There Hates You.” His other audiobook work includes “Perks of Being a Wallflower,” Matthew Quick’s “Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock” and more. Additional credits include the celebrated short films “Promiseland” and “Welcome to the Wayne.”
Galvin was born and raised in New York and he currently splits his time between Los Angeles and New York.
