Tyler Johnson was born on August 13 in Washington D.C., but grew up in nearby Gaithersburg, MD.
During his audition for Gardener of Eden, he was offered a role on the spot by actor Leonardo DiCaprio, who was also producing the film.
His full name is W. Tyler Johnson. “The W stands for William. My mom’s reasoning at the time was she wanted children with presidential-sounding names,” the actor told Digest.
Johnson has modeled for Abrecrombie & Fitch and appeared in Italian Vogue and VMAN magazines.
The actor used to watch Y&R when he stayed home from school.
