Uriah Shelton

Actor | * 03/10/1997 (24) | Dallas, Texas (United States of America (USA))
Uriah Shelton (born March 10, 1997) is an American actor and singer. He is known for his television roles, such as playing Jeff Cargill on The Glades, Josh on the web series Blue, and Joshua Matthews on Girl Meets World. Shelton was also the lead in the 2010 film Lifted. ()

Uriah was born on March 10, 1997 in Dallas, Texas. One month later his family moved him to Magnolia Springs, Alabama, a small river community about 40 miles south of Mobile. Growing up, Uriah pursued interests in martial arts, piano, and soccer. At the age of 7, he took a modeling class with his cousin, Charli. This led to a talent competition in Orlando, after which he was pursued by multiple agencies in New York and Los Angeles. Realizing that he'd come to love acting, he and his mother decided to move to Los Angeles to embark upon his professional career. He immediately began working in commercials but also focused on his love of martial arts, which resulted in him becoming the 2006 ATA Tae Kwon Do California State Champion in all categories, including sparring and extreme weapons. Having accomplished his goal Uriah returned his full attention to acting, where he began working on TV shows, including Without a Trace, The Ghost Whisperer, Mad TV, Dirty Sexy Money, The Suite Life, Monk, Trust Me, Trauma, Hallmark's The Nanny Express, and the independent feature Alabama Moon. He has just completed filming the lead role of Henry Matthews in Lifted, written and directed by Lexi Alexander (Green Street Hooligans, Punisher: War Zone), in which he plays a young singing sensation alongside music greats Ruben Studdard and Trace Adkins. Uriah trains in wushu, XMA (Extreme Martial Arts), guitar, ballet, and hip-hop. Uriah loves his dogs, a German shepherd named Tempest and a Cock-a-poo named Libby (and misses and loves his cousins Charli and Kristian who are back in Alabama).
