He hit the big time as Dr John Carter on TV's smash hit 'ER'. A charmed life for a talented boy raised in Hollywood's Hills, expensively educated and trained by a top drama coach.
Noah Wyle became interested in acting in high school, after he participated in a theatre-arts program at Northwestern University. After graduating, he became determined to pursue acting as a career, beginning his studies under the direction of Larry Moss.
Wyle won his first professional role in the NBC mini-series 'Blind Faith'. He then landed the part of a son in a dysfunctional family, in his first feature film, 'Crooked Hearts'.
In 1990 he worked on the unreleased 'There Goes My Baby'. Unfortunately he remained unemployed for the next year, but his big break came when he was offered a role in the box-office hit 'A Few Good Men'. He then appeared in the film 'Swing Kids', where he played a leader in the Hitler Youth, and in 'The Myth of Fingerprints'.
In 1994 he came across the script for the pilot of 'ER'. After three auditions, the role of Dr. Carter was granted to Noah, and the incredibly successful series has made Noah as famous as the show itself.
As Dr. John Carter on 'ER', Noah Wyle has received five Emmy Award nominations, as well as three Golden Globe nominations for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series.
Wyle is the artistic producer of his own Los Angeles theatre company, the Blank Theatre Company, which stages an annual young playwrights festival, and recently acquired Second Stage Theatre in Hollywood, where the company has mounted numerous successful productions.
He has most recently been seen in the TV series 'Falling Skies' (2011 - present).
In his leisure time, Wyle enjoys basketball, travelling, photography and going to the movies. He lives in Los Angeles.
