Jack Kilmer is an American actor who rose to prominence with his portrayal of 'Teddy' in the 2013 film 'Palo Alto,' which marked the beginning of his career as an actor. Although he was born to actor parents, Jack never intended to become an actor. He initially had an interest in music and might have built a career in the music industry if filmmaker Gia Coppola would not have approached him for 'Palo Alto.' The two were in the same school, and years later, Gia considered Jack as the perfect choice for the role of 'Teddy.' He even worked with his father, Val Kilmer. 'Palo Alto' gave Jack a direction in life, and eventually, he worked in several more films. One of his most notable roles was that of the late black metal musician Pelle "Dead" Ohlin in 'Lords of Chaos.'
