Biography

Jeunesse et formation
Carmack est né à Washington, DC, et a grandi à Derwood, dans le Maryland. Il a un frère et une sœur. Jeune garçon, il aimait participer à tous les types de sports: baseball, basketball, football, et la lutte. Carmack a également été longtemps au Seneca Creek Camp, connu pour avoir chanté l'original Rocko la teigne Lazy et notamment Ode à la Salpino.

Au Magruder High School, cependant, son attention se tourne vers le théâtre et il commence à travailler sur trois productions par an, en plus de nombreux festivals de théâtre.


Carrière
Mannequinat et seconds rôles
Après ses études, Carmack est entré à l'Université de New York pour poursuivre un diplôme en art à la Tisch School. Il quitte NYU après avoir été découvert par un agent artistique et décide de se lancer dans une carrière dans le mannequinat. Son profil était exactement ce que Bruce Weber recherchait pour travailler avec Abercrombie & Fitch. Les autres catalogues éditoriaux pour lesquelles il a travaillé sont notamment : Lord and Taylor, Macy's, Target, Who.AU, Elle France, Nautica, Guess, et Cosmogirl.

Après deux ans à New York City, Carmack décide de déménager à Los Angeles et de se consacrer à sa carrière d'acteur. Il joue ainsi dans de nombreux spots publicitaires et prend des cours de comédie. Puis, il se fait connaître du grand public, entre 2003 et 2004, en tant que Luke Ward pour la série télévisée dramatique Newport Beach. Il y joue l'ennemi de Benjamin McKenzie et le petit copain de Mischa Barton. Cependant il quitte la distribution à l'issue de la première saison, la production ne pouvant pas lui garantir l'avenir de son personnage.

En 2005, Carmack est l'égérie d'Ezra Fitch, une édition haut de gamme limitée vendue à Abercrombie & Fitch. En 2006, il est le premier rôle masculin du téléfilm Lovewrecked avec Amanda Bynes et Jonathan Bennett. A cette période, il décide de perfectionner ses talents d'acteur en jouant dans les théâtres de New York et Londres.

C'est ainsi que du 16 mars au 21 mai 2006, Carmack a joué dans la production Off Broadway M. Sloane au Théâtre Laura Pels. La pièce, réalisée par Scott Ellis, met également en vedette Alec Baldwin. La même année, Carmack a fait ses débuts sur scène à Londres dans une adaptation du film Été et Fumées. Carmack en est la vedette face Rosamund Pike et est dirigé par l'ancien directeur artistique de la Royal Shakespeare Company, Adrian Noble. Il a joué au Théâtre Apollo du 21 octobre au 25 novembre 2006.

Entre-temps, il apparaît aussi dans un grand nombre de séries télévisées telles que Smallville, Beach Girls, Les Experts : Miami, Les Experts : Manhattan... En 2008, Chris Carmack joue, le temps d'un épisode, le cousin de Susan Delfino dans la saison 4 de Desperate Housewives.

En 2009, il joue Sam Reide, le personnage principal du film The Butterfly Effect 3 : Revelations, le troisième film de la franchise Butterfly Effect. Il est aussi à l'affiche de Bleu d'enfer 2 : Le Récif, suite de Bleu d'enfer, sorti également directement en vidéo. La même année, il poursuit ses apparitions à la télévision et joue dans NCIS : Enquêtes spéciales, Drop Dead Diva.


Rôles réguliers et télévision
En 2010, il est à l'affiche de plusieurs téléfilms : Il donne la réplique à Hilary Duff et Jaime Pressly pour la comédie romantique de Gil Junger, Love and the City et pour Lifetime Movies, il est la vedette de La Dernière Noce aux côtés de Summer Glau. Il renoue avec ce même réseau, en 2012, secondant Haylie Duff dans Double Destinée.

Au cinéma, il joue dans Shark 3D. Réalisée par David Richard Ellis, cette production est cependant un cuisant échec critique. Dans le même temps, il fait aussi face au rejet de deux pilotes dans lesquelles il occupe l'un des premiers rôles, l'un pour ABC (Grace), l'autre pour NBC (Bad Girls).

En 2013, aux côtés de Sean Patrick Flanery et Kristanna Loken, il joue dans le thriller passé inaperçu, Dark Power. Mais cette année-là, il connaît son regain et accède à une notoriété plus importante, en décrochant le rôle de Will Lexington dans la série dramatique et musicale à succès, Nashville. Il y incarne un chanteur de country gay. Un personnage promu régulier dès la seconde saison. L'acteur restera ainsi fidèle à ce rôle jusqu’à l'arrêt de la série, en 2018.

Parallèlement au tournage de la série, l'acteur sort un album Pieces Of You, pour lequel il a écrit et composé 5 titres. Il pratique le doublage pour le jeu vidéo Final Fantasy Type-0 : Le Guerrier à l’épée de glace et joue dans le drame musical The Dust Storm avec l'irlandais Colin O'Donoghue et la canadienne Kristen Gutoskie.

Aussitôt libéré de Nashville, il rejoint la série médical à succès Grey's Anatomy, il y incarne le Dr. Lincoln “Link” Atticus, surnommé le Dieu de l'ortho, à partir de la saison 15, succédant ainsi à Sara Ramírez qui incarnait Callie Torres dans cette fonction.


Vie privée
En mars 2016, il est annoncé sur les réseaux sociaux, ses fiançailles avec la chanteuse Erin Slaver. Ils se sont rencontrés sur le tournage de la série Nashville. Le 30 août 2016, le couple accueille leur premier enfant, une petite fille prénommée Kai. Ils se sont mariés le 20 octobre 2018 à Nashville.

Joanne, a fashion photographer, helps her friend, Lane Daniels (Hilary Duff), an aspiring writer, get in to see Kate White, primary editor at Cosmopolitan Magazine, to pitch a story idea - which doesn't go well. On the way out the door, Kate and Lane discuss how hard it is to find a good man, which leads to Kate assigning Lane the task of joining the business world to find a man amongst all those eligible 'downtown' bachelors, and writing an article about that. She is to go under-cover and look for her 'magic man' (one for which she has a lengthy checklist of desirable attributes, as opposed to her friend Joanne's checklist which consists of: 1> breathing, and 2> through 3> cute). With a fraudulent résumé, Lane bluffs, bumbles, and sabotages her way into getting an administrative assistant position in the Corporate Strategic Planning department of a major investment firm. She is to work for Tom Rinehart (Michael McMillian), Managing Director, who is a bit of a quirky 'stick in the mud' when it comes to personal 'risk-taking'.

Whittier (Anne Judson-Yager) arrives at the fictional California State College hoping to join the national champion varsity cheerleading team. She meets up with her friend from cheerleading camp, Monica (Faune Chambers), and they're both impressive at the tryouts. Head cheerleader Tina (Bree Turner) is ready to ask them to join the team, but Greg (Bryce Johnson) goes a step further, telling Tina that Whittier will be the next head cheerleader. This angers Tina's pal Marni (Bethany Joy Lenz), who had the position staked out, but at the urging of Dean Sebastian (Kevin Cooney), Tina goes along with the plan, taking Whittier under her wing. Whittier meets Derek (Richard Lee Jackson), a campus D.J. who immediately takes a shine to her. But Tina is very demanding and controlling. She warns Whittier that Derek is not the type of boy she should be dating. Monica is bothered by Tina's meddling, but Whittier momentarily lets her cheerleading ambition get the better of her, and breaks it off with Derek. Then Tina, upset with Monica's sassy attitude, punishes her which leads to an injury and she forces Whittier to choose between her friendship and the squad. Whittier and Monica get fed up and quit Tina's tyranny, but Whittier's school spirit cannot be suppressed. With Monica's help, she gathers up the outcasts from the drama club, the dance club, and other groups that have lost their funding because of the squad and forms a ragtag squad of her own, determined to battle the varsity squad for a spot at the national championship. The two teams end up competing for the spot at nationals, with Whittier's squad ultimately winning. Afterward Whittier offers Tina a spot on her squad, which Tina refuses but ends up wanting. The film ends with Tina sucking up to Whittier and Monica, deciding she wants to be on their squad after all, while Marni comically throws a fit.
