Tyler Hilton : biography

November 22, 1983 –

Early years and personal life

Hilton was born in Palm Springs, California, the son of Kristy (née Herren) and Robert George Hilton. Raised in Bermuda Dunes, California, Hilton grew up around music and began teaching himself Elvis Presley songs at an early age. After a brief stint in Northern California, his family moved back to the Palm Springs area, where he wrote his first song about a girl named Rhian with whom he attended school. Hilton’s family made another move back to Coachella Valley for high school, where, at La Quinta High School, he started a band with some of his classmates. The band did not go anywhere, so Hilton began to enter open mic nights and went to local coffee shops to play his own music.

Hilton lives in Los Angeles. He is in a relationship with actress Megan Park whom he met on the set of Charlie Bartlett.

Acting

After his stint as Chris Keller on One Tree Hill, Hilton went on to appear in the Academy Award-winning film Walk the Line as a young version of Elvis Presley. For the part, Hilton was given the opportunity to cover two Elvis songs for the film, "Milk Cow Blues" and "That’s All Right". Both songs are featured on the film’s award-winning soundtrack.

Hilton played in 2007 the love interest in country music artist Taylor Swift’s music video for her song "Teardrops on My Guitar" and appeared in the 2008 film Charlie Bartlett. He was with Charlie Bartlett co-star and girlfriend Megan Park in the music video for the band Gloriana’s song "(Kissed You) Good Night" released in January 2012.

Hilton also performed in a Season 4 episode of My Super Sweet Sixteen () during a young girl’s sweet 16 party. He also appeared on Vh1’s Single Ladies.

After a five-year break from One Tree Hill, Hilton returned as a regular for its ninth and final season.
