Kerr Smith made his acting debut on the daytime soap As The World Turns, appearing as Teddy Hughes from 1996 to 1997. His first major TV role - and perhaps his most memorable - was in the teen series Dawson's Creek, which he joined from its second season in 1998. His character, the gay Jack McPhee, was promoted to a regular in the third season and stayed until the series wrapped in 2003.
His stint on Dawson's Creek led to a role in the thriller Final Destination, released in 2000. When the show wrapped, Smith took a recurring role in the supernatural series Charmed, appearing as the mysterious Kyle Brody. He then joined the casts of two short-lived shows: 2005's E-Ring and 2006's Justice; he also took a recurring role in CSI: NY.
In 2009, Smith starred in another horror flick, My Bloody Valentine. The following year he took a recurring role in the CW series Life Unexpected. Smith married actress Harmoni Everett in 2003, but he filed for divorce six years later.
