Aaron Kyle Tveit (pron.: /təˈvt/;[1] born October 21, 1983) is an American theatre, television, and film actor. He is known for originating the roles of Gabe in Next to Normal and Frank Abagnale Jr. in the stage version of Catch Me If You Can. He is also known for his recurring role in The CW's teen drama Gossip Girl as Tripp, Nate Archibald's cousin and Serena van der Woodsen's ex-lover, and for his portrayal of revolutionary student Enjolras in the 2012 film adaptation of Les Misérables.

Tveit was born in Middletown, New York.[2] He graduated from Middletown High School in 2001,[3] where he was active both in theater and sports, playing golf, soccer and basketball while also performing in all four of his school's theater productions. He turned down business school scholarships to major in vocal performance at Ithaca College, a decision his parents supported, before switching to musical theater after his freshman year because he missed acting and theater.Edit
