Kyle Gallner is an American actor best known for his roles in Veronica Mars, Smallville, CSI: NY, and several horror films.


Gallner was born in West Chester, Pennsylvania, on October 22, 1986. He took an interest in an acting career after he followed his sister along to one of her auditions. Gallner made his first screen appearance on an episode of Third Watch. After making his feature debut with a small role in the comedy Wet Hot American Summer, he returned to television, appearing in episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Touched By an Angel. He next appeared in the series finale of The District before portraying his first recognizable role, Bart Allen, a.k.a. "The Flash", on Smallville.

In 2005, Gallner joined the cast of Veronica Mars for the last three episodes of its first season, giving him the opportunity to carry over his role into the next season. During his run on Veronica Mars, he continued making guest appearances, starring in episodes of Jack & Bobby, Cold Case, CSI: NY, Bones, and Criminal Minds. Gallner began portraying a recurring character, a devout Mormon trying to keep a polygamist's son on the path to purity, in the controversial HBO series Big Love. Meanwhile, Gallner revived his Smallville role in early 2007, returning as Impulse rather than The Flash.

Gallner portrayed delusional serial killer James Heathridge, who appeared in the Season Seven episode Heathridge Manor.
