Child-genius! Penn Badgley graduated high school at 13

October 20, 2009


In a country with an increasingly challenged education, Penn Badgley may be considered a true genius. The “Gossip Girl” star was able to finish high school five years earlier. A real performance for everyone!
Wanting to become an actor, Penn made every effort to get rid of teachers, lessons and homework. With an extraordinary ambition, he made several additional courses to fulfill this seemingly impossible goal.
At 12 years old he already made his debut on the small screen in the series “Will and Grace”, the next year finding him on the “Young and the Restless” sets, with a graduate degree in the locker.
“I graduated when I was 13. It was really just to avoid the on-set tutor thing. I was taking community college courses when I wasn’t working so I’d spend six months working and six months going to school, on and off” explains Penn.
