Early life

Born William Brent Unger on October 15, 1995, in a region southeast of Florida, close to the resort town of Palm Beach, Billy grew up in a comfortable, albeit not affluent, family setting. His father ran a small enterprise and often undertook additional roles as a contractor or laborer to supplement the family income. His mother, primarily engaged in household duties and child-rearing, also occasionally took up additional work.

Billy commenced his schooling on the east coast before the Unger family relocated to California in 2006, settling in Hollywood. By this time, Billy had already resolved to pursue acting. In his teenage years, he started attending auditions and casting calls, gradually making his way into the realms of film and television.

Career

Billy Unger initiated his journey in television in 2007, featuring in several acclaimed projects including “Scrubs” alongside Zach Braff, and “Cold Case” with Kathryn Morris and Danny Pino. In the same year, he made his debut in the cinematic world, first appearing in the short film “Seven’s Eleven: Sweet Toys,” followed by a role in “National Treasure: Book of Secrets” alongside Nicolas Cage and Diane Kruger.

Following his initial success, Billy received numerous invitations to feature in a variety of series and movies. He has been seen in productions like “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” with Lena Headey and Thomas Dekker, “Jack and the Beanstalk” with Colin Ford, and “Crank: High Voltage” with Jason Statham and Amy Smart, among others.

Parallelly, Billy ventured into voice acting for animated movies, lending his voice to characters in “Special Agent Oso,” “Family Guy,” and “A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventures.” He increasingly collaborated with subdivisions of the Walt Disney Company, especially Disney XD and Disney Channel.

By 2010’s end, Billy Unger had established himself as an emerging star, featuring in series like “Mental” with Chris Vance, “Sonny with a Chance” with Demi Lovato, and “Hawthorne” with Jada Pinkett Smith. He also had roles in “Monster Mutt” with Bart Johnson, “You Again” with Jamie Lee Curtis and Kristen Bell, and voiced a character in the horror reboot “Children of the Corn.”

In 2012, he secured a pivotal role in a new Disney XD project, “Lab Rats,” a series depicting teenagers endowed with supernatural abilities. Here, he shared the screen with Spencer Boldman, Kelli Berglund, and Tyrel Jackson Williams. The series quickly gained popularity, earning Billy recognition globally.
