Early life

Smith was born in Exton, Pennsylvania, the son of Barbara (Hess) and a father who works as a financial advisor.[1][2] He has a sister named Allison. He attended Peirce Middle School and he graduated from Henderson High School in West Chester, Pennsylvania, then studied at the University of Vermont, where he was a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.


Smith began acting with roles on As the World Turns as Teddy Hughes from 1996 to 1997, the films Final Destination (2000) and a cameo in The Broken Hearts Club (2000), written and directed by Dawson's Creek writer Greg Berlanti and as a guest star in The WB's hit show Charmed as Agent Kyle Brody- a love interest for the fourth sister, Paige.

When he first appeared as Jack McPhee in the second season of the WB's Dawson's Creek, Smith portrayed a 16-year-old high school student; in reality, the actor was 26. Smith was 31 when the series ended its six-year run in 2003. He was the first man to have an on-screen gay kiss on U.S. television, in season three of Dawson's Creek.[3]

Smith guest starred on the television show NCIS, where he played Jonas Cobb, a naval officer who was the "Port-to-Port Killer," a serial killer who targets Navy personnel. He made his last appearance on the 8th Season finale.

As of 2014, Smith plays Robert Quinn on The Fosters.
