BiographyEdit

Early lifeEdit

Eads was born in Fort Worth, Texas and grew up in Belton. His father is Arthur Coleman "Cappy" Eads, a retired DA who died November 1, 2011. His mother is Vivian Baker (neé Athens). Eads has an older sister, Angela Eads Tekell, who is an attorney in Waco, Texas. Eads' stepfather, Dudley Baker, is a gynecologist. George graduated from Belton High School in 1985 and from Texas Tech University in 1989 with a degree in marketing. In college, he was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. Prior to beginning an acting career, Eads used to work as a copy machine salesman, as well as selling first aid and safety supplies for Cintas.

CareerEdit

To pursue his acting career, he headed to Los Angeles, California, in a pickup truck borrowed from his stepfather. When he arrived in Los Angeles, he could only drive during the day because the truck had two broken headlights. Eads got his big break on the primetime soap opera Savannah. Though his character died in the pilot episode, Eads was so popular that producers continued to use him via flashbacks and eventually brought him back as the character's identical twin.

Afterwards, Eads guest-starred on ER, and worked on several made-for television films like Crowned and Dangerous with Yasmine Bleeth in 1997.

In 2000 Eads became one of the lead characters of the CBS series CSI, in which he portrays a Las Vegas forensic scientist named Nick Stokes.

Parallel to CSI, Eads has worked on made-for television films, such as 2003 in Monte Walsh and 2004 in Evel Knievel.

In other mediaEdit

In March, 2009, Eads was voted as one of TV Guide's Sexiest Male Actors in the TV Guide's Sexiest Stars issue. The Sexiest Stars issue voted The Mentalist's Simon Baker as the Sexiest Male Actor. Eads was not discouraged by this however, and said that he was very appreciative of his fans calling him "sexy."

"It’s sweet and kind. It makes me want to work harder for them. It makes me want to be sexier."
