Career:

After stints in school and church plays and musicals as well as many theatre productions and dance troupes, Drew Tyler Bell decided to pursue an acting career in Hollywood. At age 15 years old, he appeared in his first film, Without Charlie (2001; starring Judy Greer and Joshua Malina), a drama comedy written and directed by Adam Rifkin.

Drew followed it up two years later with Victor Salva's horror film Jeepers Creepers II (2003), starring Ray Wise and Jonathan Breck. In the sequel to the 2001 film Jeepers Creepers, Drew was cast as Jonny Young, the youngest and smallest member of a state champion-winning high school basketball team. That same year, he was also spotted as a guest in an October episode of UPNs brief-lived sci-fi series Jake 2.0.

In 2004, Drew landed his first regular role on CBS long-running soap opera, "The Bold and the Beautiful" (often called Bold or annotated to B&B). Since January that year until now (2006), he has been playing the role of Thomas Hamilton Forrester, the son of Ridge (played by Ronn Moss) and Taylor Forrester (played by Hunter Tylo). In 2005, his performance on the series was nominated Outstanding Male Newcomer at the Soap Opera Digest Awards.

After nearly three years disappearing from the big screen, Drew returned in 2006 with a supporting role in Michael Landon Jr.'s western movie based on the novel by Janette Oke, Love's Abiding Joy, alongside Erin Cottrell, Logan Bartholomew, John Laughlin and Dale Midkiff. Also in that year, he supported Leah Pipes in Norm Hunter's teen romantic comedy Her Best Move and shared the screen with Alexa Vega, Majandra Delfino, Douglas Smith and Kris Lemche in Benjamin Louis' teen drama State's Evidence, an independent film that has been submitted to the Sundance Film Festival.

Meanwhile, he also appeared as a guest in a September 2006 episode of Fox sketch comedy series "MADtv" and a November 2006 episode of Fox's new drama series, "Standoff."
