Childhood & Early Life
Noah Munck was born in California, US, on May 3, 1996. He was the eldest of the five children of Greg and Kymbry Munck. He was raised in a religious environment, with his father working at the local ‘Crossline Community Church’ as an executive pastor. As a child, he developed a keen interest in acting and filmmaking.
One of the reasons for his increased interest in acting was his sister who had joined “improv” classes back then. This led Noah to consider a career in acting. He started auditioning at the age of 10 and attained early success when he bagged a ‘Volkswagen’ commercial. He also appeared in a ‘Got Milk?’ campaign.
Growing up in California, it was not unusual for him to get attracted to the world of entertainment. He finished high school from a local school, and in order to study cinema and media arts, he enrolled at ‘Biola University.’ However, he soon became bored with studies. As he had already started working as an actor, he dropped out of college without graduating.

He started appearing in auditions for films and TV series just as he entered his teenage years. In 2007, he managed to earn a small role in the series ‘All of Us.’ He appeared in the episode titled ‘Let’s Go, Bobby, Let’s Go!’ The same year, he earned a role in the teen comedy series ‘iCarly,’ which began to be aired on ‘Nickelodeon’ from September 2007.
In the first three seasons of the series, Noah played a small role of an odd friend of the leading characters. However, over time, his character became more popular with the audiences. From the fourth season, his role was extended and was made one of the main characters.
The series ‘iCarly’ was a slow-starter, as far as the ratings were concerned. As the seasons progressed, the show’s ratings improved, and critics began acknowledging the humor and the unique storylines that the show featured. By the time the series ended, after seven seasons, it had become one of the best-known and most successful children’s series of the decade.
His successful stint with ‘iCarly’ helped him earn a role in the more popular series ‘Wizards of Waverly Place.’ He appeared in four episodes of the series in 2008 and played the role of ‘Timmy O’Hallahan.’ The same year, he played a guest role of “the screaming kid” in the film ‘Four Christmases,’ which was also his big-screen debut.
In 2009, he joined the voice cast of the popular animated series ‘Phineas and Ferb.’ He lent his voice to the character of ‘Xavier.’ Toward the end of the year, he ended up doing two small single-episode roles in the series ‘ER’ and ‘The Troop.’ 2010 was a relatively slow year for Noah, as he appeared in a single episode of the series ‘Rules of Engagement.’ The same year, he received two nominations for his role in ‘iCarly.’ He ended up winning an ‘Australian Kids’ Choice Award’ for his performance in the series.
In 2011, he appeared in a major role in the film ‘Bad Teacher,’ starring Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake. He played the role of a bully. Despite the film receiving mixed critical response, it was a major box-office success of the year. After this big-budget studio film, he appeared in a key role in the independent film ‘The Rainbow Tribe’ and essayed the role of ‘Ryan.’ He ended the year with a guest role in the series ‘Victorious.’
In 2012, he appeared as one of the panelists on the kids’ game show ‘Figure It Out,’ and in 2013, he appeared as ‘Ben Rogers’ in the film ‘Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn.’ He moved on to lead roles with the TV film ‘Nicky Deuce,’ which saw him essaying the titular role. He followed it up with another TV film, ‘Swindle,’ appearing as ‘Darren.’
He continued to appear in guest roles in the series ‘Arrested Development’ and ‘Sam & Cat.’ He later appeared in the black comedy ‘Just Before I Go,’ a critically appreciated film that premiered at the ‘Tribeca Film Festival.’ Since 2014, he has been appearing in the series ‘The Goldbergs,’ playing a recurring role.
One reason for him devoting less time to acting projects of late is his dedication toward making music. He produces electronic dance music under the stage name “NoxiK.” In January 2012, he ventured into music with his single ‘Beginnings.’ The single was markedly successful, and following this, he has been releasing all his music on his ‘YouTube’ channel. He has not associated himself with any music label till now and claims he is not considering doing that either.
In April 2013, he released a small EP titled ‘Hotline.’ He also happens to have a ‘SoundCloud’ account. He released a single named ‘Killjoy’ on both his ‘YouTube’ and ‘SoundCloud’ accounts. The song became a rage in the EDM arena. The song attained major success when it was reposted by ‘EDM.com’ on their official page. In March 2014, he released his first official and full-fledged EP, ‘Road Warrior.’
In October 2016, Noah started his second ‘YouTube’ channel, ‘Sadworld.’ Noah posts weird, experimental, and dark comedy sketches on the channel. The videos feature a distinct editing and visual style that distinguishes Noah from the rest of the contemporary “YouTubers.”
Noah Munck is an active supporter of ‘Camp Del Corazon,’ an annual summer camp that caters to children with heart ailments.
His sister and one of his younger brothers are also aspiring artists. His younger brother Ethan has appeared as Noah’s little brother in a few episodes of the series ‘iCarly.’ His younger sister, Taylor Munck, is an aspiring musician.
In his spare time, Noah likes to swim, work out at the gym, and read comic books.
Noah is not the only one in his family to have taken up a career in acting. His great-grandfather, Barlett Robinson, was known as one of the most seasoned actors of his time.
