Jackson Hurst (Lyman) landed the break-out lead role of Grayson in Lifetime/Sony Television’s pilot Drop Dead Diva. Prior to the rating’s hit, beginning its third season this summer, Hurst had a significant role in the Lifetime movie Living Proof, which put him on the radar of the prolific producers Craig Zadan and Neal Meron, who served as Executive Producers on both projects. He has also guest starred on Inspector Mom, The Closer and NCIS, as well as Dimension Films' The Mist. He has recently finished shooting Hidden Moon in Mexico.
The middle child of three sons, Hurst was raised in the town of Klein, Texas. Aside from his passion for acting, he is also a serious tri-athlete. His next challenge will be training and testing solo for his pilot license. A graduate of Baylor University, where he earned a BBA in math, Hurst spent a few years in corporate America before moving to Los Angeles pursuing his acting.
