A native Californian, Casey Jon Deidrick was raised in Arizona and Colorado. His interest in acting led him to appear in his high school’s theater production of Carousel. After graduating in 2005, Deidrick attended Metropolitan State College of Denver for one year.
In 2007, Deidrick moved back to the Golden State and decided to pursue an acting career. He began with roles on two prominent teen shows, landing a recurring role on 90210 and also appearing on WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE.
Two years later, Deidrick auditioned for his first soap, DAYS OF OUR LIVES. Although he didn’t get the role of T, the show’s casting director brought Deidrick back to test for Chad, Mia’s ex-boyfriend and the father of her deceased daughter, Grace. Deidrick got the job.
When Deidrick is not hard at work on the DAYS set, he enjoys singing with A Dreadful Fall, which he describes as a “metalcore/hardcore band.” He also writes songs based on his past and new relationships in Los Angeles.
