Jalyn Hall was born in Los Angeles, California and didn’t waste much time getting into acting. With his mother’s encouragement, he pursued acting as his career goal consistently.
As a result, he landed his first paid role was when he was only 6 years old! Hall’s continued massive action has put him on big name shows like NCIS: Los Angeles and Black-ish.
