Actor Biography

Coming off of a breakout year in 2018, Jake Borelli has rapidly made a name for himself in the entertainment industry. He can currently be seen starring as Dr. Levi Schmitt aka "Glasses" on ABC's award-winning, critically acclaimed drama Grey's Anatomy. Introduced in the first two episodes of the 14th season, Borelli instantly became a fan favorite as one of the newest interns to join Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. In season 15, fans tuned in weekly to watch Dr. Schmitt's historic storyline unfold, as they witnessed the first kiss between two male doctors and the first major gay (male) romance in the show's history. This inspired Borelli to come out in his personal life as well.

Born in Columbus, Ohio, Borelli knew at a young age that he wanted to be an actor. He got his start in acting with the Columbus Children's Theater when he was just 10 years old and performed in over 15 plays in just five years. From the stage, he went on to work in commercials and radio in Ohio. In 2009, a few weeks after he graduated from high school, he decided to make the move to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of being a full-time actor. Shortly after the move, Borelli landed his first major role as Roy in the Nickelodeon series iCarly. He then went on to recur as Wolfgang, a quirky German exchange student in Nickelodeon's The Thundermans. On the film front, Borelli recently starred in Netflix's Original Movie #REALITYHIGH, opposite Kate Walsh and Anne Winters.

When he isn't on set, you can find Borelli in the mountains camping; he has a passion for traveling and doesn't hesitate at the chance to take a road trip or explore new places. He is also a huge musical theater buff and enjoys seeing a new play or musical when he is in New York City.

Borelli currently resides in the Los Angeles area.
