Tanner Novlan — A Biography

Tanner Novlan was born in the town of Paradise Hill, Saskatchewan, Canada. At the age of 18, Novlan left the family farm and headed to Los Angeles to become an actor. He quickly took up modeling in print campaigns for Guess and Tommy Hilfiger while taking acting classes and going on auditions.

The young actor began piling on television credits such as Roswell: New Mexico, Modern Family, Letterkenny, Rizzoli and Isles, Bones, and Parenthood.
