Born on July 1, 1988, in La Verne, California, he quickly showed a natural aptitude for the screen. His talent caught the attention of both audiences and critics alike, leading to a memorable role as Josh Bauer in the hit series 24. He would go on to appear in 10 episodes of the hit series.

Ellingson was also known for his portrayal of Kyle Harmon in 18 episodes of CSI: Miami between 2007 and 2010.

However, it was on the big screen that most people may remember Ellingson, when he starred alongside Cameron Diaz in the 2009 acclaimed movie, My Sister's Keeper. In the movie, he played Diaz's teenage son, Jesse Fitzgerald.

Despite his early success, Evan had not appeared on screen in over 10 years, according to his IMDb page.

Our thoughts go out to Ellingson's family, friends, and fans at this time.
