After winning “Claim to Fame Contest” organized by Fox Broadcasting in 1999, Jared participated in Teen Choice Awards in which he came across the agent, and so passed-up university in favour of pursuing an acting career. At the very beginning of his career he appeared in minor roles of the feature film “A Little Inside” (1999) and made for television film “Silent Witness” (2000). Jared earned fame after acting in the television series “Gilmore Girls” (2000–2005) created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, for which he received a nomination for the Teen Choice Award for Choice TV Actor: Drama. However, most importantly, he proved that he was able to create characters which attract audiences, and he was so trusted as to land the lead role in another television series “Supernatural” (2005–present) created by Eric Kripke. This time he was even more successful, and was nominated for two Teen Choice Awards and SFX Award as the Best TV Actor. Even though the series received mixed and average reviews from critics, among the huge fan base it is considered to be a cult series. The growing popularity induced the release of a spin-off series such as “Ghostfacers”, “Supernatural: The Anime Series”, “Supernatural: Bloodlines” and others.
