Trevor Christopher Wright (born August 23, 1982) is an American actor.

Biography

Wright’s breakthrough acting lead role was in the 2007 film Shelter as Zach.

His recurring role as Zack Powers on George Lopez and guest starring in television series such as NYPD Blue, Scrubs and Boston Public led to his being named in 2003 by Teen Vogue as a “young and upcoming star that’s here to stay”.

His very first break came through his involvement in music videos when, in 1989, Wright, along with fellow actor Elijah Wood, appeared in the video for Paula Abdul’s single “Forever Your Girl,” directed by David Fincher. He subsequently starred opposite singer Stacie Orrico in the videos for her singles “Stuck” (2003), and “I Could Be the One” (2004).

His first feature-film role was in 1993’s Memories by Joe Frank, but his first major role was as “Zach” in the 2007 independent film Shelter, directed by Jonah Markowitz and co-starring Brad Rowe, Tina Holmes and Ross Thomas. His role brought him three awards for Best Male Lead at the Dallas Out Takes, and Best Actor and Audience Awards at Tampa International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.

Wright’s film roles include Vicious Circle, in which he appeared in the role of the character “Fin”. He was the lead actor in Vacancy 2: The First Cut, that had a straight to DVD release on January 20, 2009. His 2010 films include The Social Network and 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams.

Wright enjoys skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing and other similar activities. He resides in Los Angeles, California. He was engaged to actress Odette Yustman until their breakup in 2008.
