Who to Follow: Noah Galvin (Twitter), "Kenny on @TheRealONeals (Season 2 coming this fall Tuesday's at 9:30). "
Claim to Fame: Noah Galvin got his start on stage and he was successful enough there that he could just as easily make a career out of that. But the 22 year old took on a new challenge this year when he was cast in the role of Kenny in the ABC sitcom The Real O'Neals. On there, he plays the role of 16 year old (the show obviously has that Dawson's Creek syndrome) Kenny, the middle child who reveals to the family that he is gay. It is a role that Galvin himself is able to relate to, as he also revealed to his own family that he was gay as a teenager. That series was renewed for a second season, and will return to ABC in October.
