He has appeared in the feature film “Greyhound” for Apple+, FOX’s “The Passage,” and as a recurring character in AMC’s “The Walking Dead: World Beyond.” Jesse has also worked extensively in the independent film space, lending his talents to a myriad of short projects such as “#SLUT,” which won the award for Best Ensemble Cast at the FirstGlance Film Festival.

He has also been cast in Netflix’s upcoming drama series, “First Kill,” produced by Emma Roberts. Born in Lexington, Kentucky, Gallegos moved to Northern Louisiana as a young teenager. He grew up working on farms and began acting in school at a very young age, but it was basketball talent that propelled him to the next level. He was recruited to play for Louisiana College but turned back to his true passion of acting once the opportunity presented itself. He threw himself headfirst into the world of film and television, not only honing his craft on stage, but also refining his talent as a writer, director and eventually as a producer. He taught himself to edit to have a more well-rounded grasp of the filmmaking process and enjoys editing actor reels. Jesse currently resides in Atlanta with his 14-year-old wheelchair-bound corgi, and he lends his free time exploring his newfound passion for sailing and volunteering in the community.
