Thomas John Patrick Welling was born on April 26, 1977. Very athletic, he begins his career far from the film studios as he works in construction.

In 1998, during a party, he was spotted by a talent hunter who suggested he pursue a career as a model. The young man follows his advice and, after a few small contracts, moves to Los Angeles in 2000. There, he posed for major brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Calvin Klein. At the same time, he tried his luck as an actor and got one of his first roles in the series Judging Amy in 2001.

The public discovered him a few months later when he landed the lead role of Clark Kent in Smallville. The series is a huge success, especially with teenage audiences and allows Tom Welling to become a star. Taking advantage of this success, he appears in the film Thirteen by the Dozen alongside Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt in 2003. Since Smallville’s shutdown in 2011, projects have been scarce for Tom. In 2013, he appeared in the independent film Parkland and then in Draft Day in 2014. The following year, he returned to the Clark Kent/Superman costume for a small appearance in the Flash and Arrow series.

On the private side, the actor was married to model Jamie White from 2002 to 2015. He finds love again on the arm of Jessica Rose Lee, in 2015. On January 5, 2019, his girlfriend gives birth to a little boy named Thomson Wylde.
