Early life, parents, and education
Born under the zodiac sign of Aquarius on 26 January 1999, in Keokuk, Iowa USA, Drake holds American nationality and his ethnicity is White. He was raised by his parents, about whom nothing is known, but Drake is the middle child of three, d during his childhood, Drake’s family moved across the US, because his parents worked where ever they could find a decent job. When Drake turned 14, he and his family moved to South Florida where he spent the next five years of his life playing sports and working as a lifeguard. It was there that he discovered his love and passion for the arts, and began studying intently.
When it comes to his educational background, upon matriculating from high school in 2017, he studied acting at The Performers Studio Workshop.
Drake made his acting debut playing Zack Harris in the 2020 drama “Murder RX”, which didn’t achieve much success. Later that year, Drake was seen as Dave in the short movie “Terra Beach”, followed by his role as Conor in the 2021 thriller horror “Not Alone”, the story of a family who bought a mansion not knowing that it’s haunted by unexplainable phenomena. The movie had no nominations, and was poorly rated by the audience (3.9/10).
In 2022, Drake was cast to play Judd in the romantic drama “The In Between”, also starring Joey King, Kim Dickens and Kyle Allen. Next, he played Nathan Kamber in the thriller “Mantra”, which was his first lead role, starring opposite Alex Suarez and Dan Franklin, who co-wrote the script for the movie.
Thanks to this role, Drake was noticed by Robbie Thompson, a showrunner of “The Winchesters”, and Drake was soon cast to play his most notable role to date, as John Winchester. The show is a spin-off from the hit series “Supernatural”, and follows the love story of John and Mary (played by Meg Donnelly), and how the two saved not only their romance but also the world. The story is set in the ‘70s, and their son, Dean (played by Jensen Ackles), narrates the story of his parents from how they met and fell in love, to how they fought the monsters together.
The series premiered in October 2022, and was the most-viewed premiere for the season. The last episode of the first season aired on 7 March 2023, and the first question asked by the fans was: ‘When will the second season start?’
We’re sorry to tell them that the CW officially decided that there will be no second season. However, Drake’s fans shouldn’t be sad; he’s finished the filming of his newest project, a movie entitled “Quiet in My Town”, written and directed by Michael Carney. The movie is currently in post-production, and to give you a sneak peek, Drake will play Brian Blanton, opposite Marc Blucas and Annabeth Gish, in this drama about the citizens of a small, peaceful town devoted to family, God, and football.
Love life and relationships
Drake is a person whose love life is shrouded in a veil of privacy, carefully guarded from the prying eyes of the curious world. While many may share their relationships on social media or through public displays of affection, Drake takes a different path.
However, this doesn’t mean that he was spared of rumors and speculations about his dating history. One of the rumors was that he was dating his co-star from “The Winchesters”, Meg Donnelly, as the two were often seen together attending various red-carpet events; now, their fans are wondering if they are a real-life couple. It seems that both Drake and Meg decided to stay tight-lipped about the nature of their relationship.
As of October 2023, it seems that Drake is single, he hasn’t been married or engaged and doesn’t have children.
