This San Francisco native started working in theatre at the age of 11. Justin came across acting almost by accident. He had a crush on a girl, so he joined an acting class to be nearer to her.
The teacher said that he had natural ability and asked him to represent the school in an open call for a professional play called The Little Prince. He got the part and did the play for two years.
During that time, he also appeared in a number of commercials and soon after, won a role on General Hospital, playing the character of Alan Quartermain, Jr.
More television work followed.
Among these were the TV movie Miracle at Midnight and the series It Had to be You. He also appeared in several made-for-television movies and pilots before he landed the role of James Bartholomew "Jimmy" Olsen in Lois & Clark in 1994. That same year, Whalin was awarded an Emmy for his performance work in the CBS movie Other Mothers. "e;When I won my Emmy, I slept with it for the first night.
