Kendall Schmidt (born November 2, 1990) is an American actor and singer. He is best known for starring on the Nickelodeon show, Big Time Rush.

Schmidt was born and raised in Andover, Kansas, to Kent and Kathy Schmidt, but raised in Los Angeles, California.[1][2][3] His father is a developer who builds assisted living facilities.[4] He began acting when he was 6 years old, appearing in a Chex television commercial.[5][3] His two older brothers, Kenneth and Kevin, are also actors, and Kirsten Dunst was his babysitter before she became famous.[3]

When he was 10 years old, he was one of three young actors who was hired to be Haley Joel Osment's stand-in and body double (they shared the same agent) in the Steven Spielberg film, A.I. Artificial Intelligence.[3] He celebrated his 10th birthday on the set, and Spielberg and the cast surprised him with a birthday cake decorated with Star Wars figures.[3]

His first speaking role was playing a young Frasier Crane on an episode of Frasier,[5][6] but he has also had guest-starring roles on Gilmore Girls, ER, and CSI: Miami.[6] During his youth, he and his mother spent about six months out of every year in California.[3] He was represented by the Pinkerton Model and Talent Agency for modeling work.[7]
