Louis Gabriel Basso III (born December 11, 1994) is an American film and television actor, who has been appearing in film and television roles since 2007.

Life and career[edit]

Basso was born in St. Louis, Missouri, the son of Marcia and Louis J. Basso.[1][3] He was homeschooled as a child along with his two sisters. His family attended First Evangelical Free Church in Manchester, Missouri. He booked minor roles in two feature films in early 2007, in St. Louis: Meet Bill, alongside Aaron Eckhart, and Alice Upside Down, starring Alyson Stoner, along with Basso's older sister Alexandria. He later moved with his mother and sisters, Alexandria and Annalise Basso, to Los Angeles.[4] He found representation his first week there, receiving a small role in the series Bedside Manor and a lead role in the pilot Ghost Town.[5]

Basso has also had several television guest roles in shows like Nickelodeon's iCarly, ABC's The Middle and a regular role on the Showtime series The Big C, playing Adam, the son of the lead role played by Laura Linney.

His role as Hal in the independent family film Alabama Moon (2009), starring John Goodman and Clint Howard, directed by Tim McCanlies, and based on the best-selling novel by Watt Key, is considered his break-out role.

More recently, Basso appeared in the J. J. Abrams film Super 8 (2011), for which he was submitted for consideration for a BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actor, and The Kings of Summer (2013), which had its premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews. Since summer 2010, Basso has been in a relationship with Ashyln Skelton; an eighteen year old dance major. [6]
