Aimee Teegarden is the beautiful 27-year-old actress who became very famous after she played the lead role of Julie Taylor in the NBC drama Friday Night Lights, which ran in 5 seasons from October 3, 2006, to February 9, 2011. Quite a while, huh? Besides, she was only 16 years old when the series started.
She was born as Aimee Richelle Teegarden on October 10, 1989, in Downey, California, where she grew up.
Aimee always seems to have been on the smart side, since she graduated from high school at the age of sixteen by self-study. Very brave!
Aimee’s success in playing Julie in Friday Night Lights opened up a whole series of doors for her, giving her a pretty busy year in 2011. Together with Dennis Quaid, she played the lead role in Martin Guigui’s thriller Beneath the Darkness. Later that year, she played Jenny Randall in the horror movie Scream 4 and as Nova Prescott in the Disney movie Prom.
To crown all her hard work, in May 2011 she was named “TV Actress of the Year” by Young Hollywood Awards for her work on Friday Night Lights. In June 2011 she signed on as co-star in the war drama Love and Honor together with Liam Hemsworth and Teresa Palmer .
In 2014, she starred as Emery Whitehill in the short-lived science fiction romantic drama Star-Crossed by The CW.
It’s no open secret that Aimee is vegan. Although she is a star, Aimee has led a pretty normal life, mainly because most people don’t recognize her when she’s on the road.
She deserves a lot of credit for keeping her time in the spotlight scandal-free, unlike so many other stars who started their path to fame at a very early age. All this is thanks to her parents, who, despite her rise to fame and fortune, have given her a fairly down-to-earth upbringing.
Aimee Teegarden Dating Life
Aimee Teegarden’s dating life has been pretty uneventful. She was no womanizer when it came to men. She just picks one and stays with him. More than that, she’s the kind of person who likes to keep her private life to herself. No reason to flaunt it if it’s really her right?
She has been involved in a total of three affairs so far, her first boyfriend being actor Jeremy Sumpter.
For a long time, it seemed like Aimee was in a relationship with Grey Damon, with all the PDAs and outside the screen. But unfortunately, we’re not so sure that they’re not just friends off-screen.
In 2010, there was a rumor that Aimee was dating Zach Gilford, the actor who played the conflict-ridden and lovable Matt Saracen in NBC’s “Friday Night Lights”. Although there was no confirmation at the time, there were obviously beloved photos that the cute couple published in social media.
After wild rumors about their love, it was quite a shock when news of Zach Gilford and Kiele Sanchez reached the tabloids. No one knew exactly when Gilford split up with Aimee, but his eventual marriage to Kiele sealed the deal.
There is no concrete evidence, but it is said that she is dating again and possibly madly in love, and his name became known as “Chris Skinner” and he is of British descent.
Aimee had also posted a photo of them together, in which they expressed their unending love for each other.
Is Aimee Teegarden Married?
Since Aimee is old enough to walk down the aisle, it seems she still hasn’t found anyone worth the trouble.
However, there are rumors that she has disappeared from the market because she is engaged to a Chris Skinner. He is British and an accountant and he and Aimee met on New Year’s Eve 2011/2012.
Some say they married secretly, just with friends and family, but there is still no real evidence.
Some time ago there was a rumor that she was seeing a married man, but there was absolutely no truth to it. You see, the man in question was Zach Gilford. Yes, he is a married man, but no, they had broken up before he was finally married to Kiele Sanchez.
Aimee is many things, loved and unappreciated, but she’s certainly not a husband-stealer.
Gone is the chubby teenager we first saw when Aimee appeared on our screens in her teenage years. And in her place is a gorgeous lady who looks way too gorgeous to be described as fat or even chubby. With different hair colors, Aimee looks slimmer and has made quite a comeback.
Her good looks lately are attributed to certain changes in her lifestyle and not necessarily to the plastic surgery most people think she had.
First of all, Aimee has a weakness for the gym. Sometime in 2013, she told the US Weekly…
“I’m a pretty healthy person. I probably go to the gym five days a week when I have time, and I surf in California. I went on a surf trip with my girlfriend in San Diego just last week. It was so epic, but it was definitely much colder in the water than I expected”.
To complement her absolutely gorgeous new body, Aimee Teegarden had gone 99% vegan. This is not much of a surprise since she was raised in Downey.
“I’ve gotten rid of all dairy, 99 percent of the time. I feel a lot better, I feel cleaner, and ethically it makes me feel a lot happier going to sleep at night.”
