Best known to television audiences as bad boy Oliver on "The O.C.," Taylor Handley stars as Johnny Miller, a bright-yet-haunted teenager in The CW's "Hidden Palms." Fresh out of rehab and still coping with his father's suicide, Johnny attempts to reclaim his life after moving to Palm Springs with his mother (Gail O'Grady) and new stepfather (D.W. Moffett).
A veteran of the summer stock program in his native Santa Barbara, California, Handley began acting at age 8. He most recently wrapped work on the feature films "The Standard" and "September Dawn," a film based on a Mormon family caught up in the infamous Mountain Meadows massacre. He also starred in the prequel to "Texas Chainsaw Massacre," as well as in the romantic comedy "Zerophilia," in which he played a young man with a rare genetic condition which causes people to change gender at will and occasionally against their will.
His additional film credits include his feature debut opposite Michael Keaton in "Jack Frost" and the lead in the original telefilm "Phantom of the Megaplex."
Handley recently received rave reviews starring opposite Academy Award-winner Marcia Gay Harden as her emotionally traumatized nephew in Hallmark Hall of Fame's telefilm "In From the Night." His additional television roles include guest appearances on "CSI," "Blind Justice," "Cold Case," "NYPD Blue," "Becker," "Dawson's Creek" and "Frasier." Handley also starred as Kieran Culkin's happily oblivious best friend on the sitcom "Go Fish."
Handley, whose father founded the popular sportswear
company Pornstar, has older twin brothers with whom he shares a passion
for extreme sports, including surfing, snowboarding and skateboarding.
He is also the lead singer and guitarist for the rock band Nobody's
Looking. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
