Although Penn Badgley joins the children's theater in Seattle, he is behind the camera and in front of the microphone. Today's actor works as a voice actor for a children's radio station. Slowly but surely, the curiosity is aroused and the heartthrob wants to try themselves on different roles. Therefore, Penn postpones his studies for an indefinite period. Actually, he wants to start after graduating from "Santa Monica College" in Los Angeles at the "University of Southern California", but it will not work.
In 2001, he gets his first major role in the television series Shadow of Passion and is immediately nominated for the Young Artist Awards in the category "Best Performance in a Series". Then in 2007 the big break with Gossip Girl (2007 to 2012, with Blake Lively and Leighton Meester). Here he is seen as male lead role Dan Humphrey - a nice guy with a well-kept secret. He plays this role for a full five years. Previously, he has already gained experience in series such as Do Over - Back in the 80s or The Mountain. As an actor, Penn Badgley is also featured in such films as The Fluffer, Revenge is Sexy, Easy to Have, or Anarchy.

However, this fails in 2013 after two years. Love finds Penn with singer Domino Kirke. On February 28, 2017, the couple marries.
In addition to working as an actor, Penn has another passion. He sings, plays the guitar and writes his own songs. In 2016, the debut album Centerfold will be released by his band Mothxr.
