There is not much known about Charlie’s parents Michael and Ellie Tahan, except for the fact that Ellie is a professional dancer – he doesn’t talk about his early life either, but he grew up in Glen Rock with his older brother Willie, and younger sister Daisy Tahan who is an actress as well. The first acting job which he landed was when he appeared in a “Citibank” commercial when he was only four.

Daisy’s latest appearance was in the 2018 movie entitled “The Kindergarten Teacher”.
Even though Charlie started his acting career in 2007, he is already credited with around 30 roles. His first appearance in front of the cameras was in the movie called “High Falls”, after which he landed the first significant role of his career as Ethan in the “I Am Legend” apocalyptic science fiction movie, in which he had a chance to act alongside Will Smith. He also appeared in two more movies in 2007 – “Trainwreck: My Life as an Idiot”, and “Once Upon a Film”.
In 2008, Charlie played Danny Willis in the “Nights in Rodanthe” movie based on the novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks, and made his first appearance in a TV series in “Fringe”.

The following year he appeared in “Blue Jasmine” as Young Danny, and in 2014 landed roles in the “Life of Crime” and “Love is Strange” movies.

Charlie is quite secretive when it comes to his personal life, but according to his parents, he is more focused on his acting career rather than on finding a girlfriend and being in a relationship. He appears to be single at the moment, isn’t thinking about marrying or having kids any time soon.
Charlie’s likes, hobbies and plans
Charlie is not all about his acting career; he is also a big fan of books and loves to read in his free time.

He also enjoys listening to “Super Dark Times” soundtrack songs written by Ben Frost, plays the guitar, is good at drawing, and can ride a skateboard. Charlie is an animal lover too – he has two dogs and cats with him at home and loves spending time with them.
Charlie’s favorite actors are those who began in comedy movies and were also stand-up comedians, such as John C. Reilly and Jim Carrey – he personally doesn’t mind about the genre he acts in, but likes to play bad guys more than the good. His favorite movie is the animated “The Emperor’s New Groove”, and he’s read a lot of books but one of his favorites was suggested to him by the director of “Super Dark Times”, and is called “Kafka on the Shore” by Haruki Murakami. One of his favorite musicians is Arthur Russell, while his favorite band is Blink-182.
Car or a diploma?
When asked if he would rather have a car or a diploma, Charlie admitted that he would rather have a car since he is not that interested in studying, but then said that it would depend on what kind of diploma it is.
