Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Evan Ross was the son of the iconic singer and actress Diana Ross and a teenybopper heartthrob, but he was also a talented actor who earned praise for his rawness and depth. Born on August 26, 1988 in Greenwich, Connecticut, Ross began his acting career while still attending Greenwich High School. He starred alongside rappers T.I. and Big Boi in the coming-of-age drama "ATL." Despite his youth, he never shied away from emotionally intense roles, from the HIV drama "Life Support" (2007) alongside Queen Latifah and his sister Tracee Ellis Ross, to a role as a teen with a speech impediment in the biopic "Pride" (2007). He began working on his first album, a pop/R&B hybrid, in 2007 and released his first single in 2011. In 2010, Ross appeared as a love interest on the CW's reboot of "90210" (2008-2013). He then took on a more serious role in the critical darling "Mooz-lum" (2010) about an African-American Muslim family in the aftermath of 9/11. He began seeing singer Ashlee Simpson in 2013, and the two married on August 31, 2014, in a ceremony performed by Ross' mother. In his most big-budget role, he was cast as Messalla, a resourceful rebel, in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" (2014) and "Part 2"...
