Born in Fort Worth, Texas, on 29 October 1990, under the water sign of Scorpio, Carlson Elizabeth Young is a 28-year-old American film and television actress. Fans have taken an interest in her work in recent years due in large part to her unusual career trajectory. She started her acting career at the tender age of 14, but had trouble landing credited roles until 2007. For the next few years, she struggled to find her way in the world of show business, however, everything changed when she was cast as Brooke Maddox in the universally praised series “Scream” in 2015.

Since then, she’s gone on to appear in a variety of titles, such as “The Blazing World” and “The Night is Young”. While she’s yet to become a recipient of prestigious awards, it’s safe to say she’s now entering her prime.
Early Life and Education: Growing Up in Texas
Carlson was raised in her birthplace by Marshall Ralph Young Sr. and his wife Susannah Elizabeth, but nothing is known about them, aside from their names. This is mostly because Carlson has always been a private person, despite her sudden rise to stardom. On many occasions, she was targeted by fans and reporters alike, as they inquired about various details pertaining to her family and early life.
Each time she politely refused to answer any questions not related to her acting career, however, we do know several details about her. For instance, she has a sister named Griffin, her roots are Irish, French and English, despite holding American citizenship, and as for her education, she matriculated from Country Day School in her hometown in 2008. Afterwards, she would go on to enroll at the University of Southern California (USC), where she would take up poetry writing and creative writing classes. Due to her ongoing acting career, Young opted not to finish her studies, and instead focus on various professional endeavors.
‘Those classes at USC really helped me gain perspective’, stated Carlson on one occasion. ‘I would love to come back and obtain a degree.’
Career Beginnings: Uncredited Roles, As the Bell Rings, Pretty Little Liars and More
The start of Carlson’s career can be dated to the time when she was 14., but not until three years later did fate come down on her side, when she was chosen for the role of Tiffany Blake in the hit teenage comedy “As the Bell Rings”; in total, she appeared in 32 of the show’s 43 episodes, and gained nationwide recognition over the course of just two years. As a result, she landed parts in “Heroes” and “Pretty Little Liars”, which while still small roles, had Carlson brushing shoulders with stars, and perfecting her craft.
Breakthrough: True Blood, The League, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and More
A star on the rise, Young earned another chance to showcase her wide array of skills when she became Tammy in “True Blood”. Even though her character appeared in only three episodes, she still had more than enough time to impress the show’s loyal fanbase. Afterwards, she would go on to appear in “The Dog Who Saved Christmas Vacation”, as well as “The League and “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”, both well-regarded series in the world of show business. Again, Carlson failed to land a leading role in a show or film, but she succeeded in being part of a bigger collective, in addition to expanding her resume even further.
Later on, she would make appearances in “Big Time Rush”, “Traffic Light”, “Wendy”, “Shake It Up” and “Pair of Kings”. This period of her career is mostly seen as a transitional phase during which Carlson explored her acting preferences and collaborated with famous actors and directors.
Becoming a Star: Kay and Peele, The Night is Young, Scream and Much more
In 2012, Young was cast as Jacquelin in “Kay and Peele”, a highly-rated comedy show by Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Kay. This was one of her first experiences with comedy and she defied all expectations with a professional approach to her role. Afterwards, she would tone it down a little when it came to appearances, with “The Kid” and “Premature” being her only acting credits in 2013 and 2014.
But 2015 was a different phase for her, as she landed the part which helped her become an international star, as she became Brooke Maddox in “Scream: The TV Series”, a show based on the events from “Scream” (the movie) and “Scary Movie”. It chronicles the adventures of a group of teenagers being stalked by a deranged serial killer wearing a mask. With rave ratings and positive comments from critics, the series was the talk of the acting community in 2015 and 2016. After the conclusion of the show, Carlson mostly appeared in short films, such as “The Blazing World”, “Date” and “50 Ways”. It’s unclear whether she has any large-scale projects in preparation for 2020, however, since she’s still only 28, we could still expect a lot more from her.
Personal Life: Is Carlson Young Married? Who Is Her Husband Isom Innis?
Carlson Young is married to Isom Innis, the keyboardist and producer of the massively popular indie pop group Foster the People, perhaps best known for their 2011 platinum hit “Pumped Up Kicks”. Isom and his belle knew each other for just a few weeks before they officially started dating. The story of their engagement is also an interesting one – in January 2016 they were on a vacation in Iceland, as both Isom and Carlson are avid mountaineers and hikers. In an unexpected turn of events, they found themselves trapped on a mountain, and Isom jokingly said that he would propose to her if they made it out alive. Obviously they did, and he popped the question in the helicopter on the way to safety.
On 29 April, 2017, they married in Carlson’s hometown, at Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church, which she had attended as a child, so the beginning of her union with Isom was a symbolic gesture of her returning to her roots. Their current place of residence is Los Angeles, California. Before her marriage to Isom, she dated several famous models and artists, such as Tony Oller, Brian Patrick Kehoe and Lucas Till.
