He has an identical twin brother named Jeremy London, and a now deceased younger sister named Dedra. They lived in Wanette, Oklahoma with their mother and sister after their parents’ divorce, then relocated to Desoto, Texas during his middle school, where he attended Desoto High School. At school, the London twins were good at speech, drama and athletics, and later joined their sister at a drama and modelling school in Dallas, Texas.

Dedra London passed away in 1992 as a result of a traffic accident, and was laid to rest at Hooker Cemetery in Oklahoma.

Career

Actor

Jason made his acting debut with a role in “The Man in The Moon”, alongside Reese Witherspoon, during the summer of his junior year in high school. Initially, he was there to drive Jeremy to audition for the role, but at the last minute he decided to audition too. Surprisingly, Jason was given the role and Jeremy became his stunt double. ‘… he talked me into driving him. I didn’t want to go because I had a date with my girlfriend, but I was the one who ended up getting the part’, he said of the role. He moved to Los Angeles to further his acting career, starring in “False Arrest”, “December” and “Country Estates” before his big break in 1993 in “Dazed and Confused”, alongside Matthew McConaughey and Ben Affleck.

He played Randall “Pink” Floyd, a dissatisfied high school quarterback to much critical appreciation and so fame, winninng “Best Youth Actor Co-Starring in a Motion Picture” at the Young Artists Awards that year. London went on to appear in the films “Tales From the Crypt”, “A Matter of Justice” and “Aerosmith: Amazing”, and the TV shows “Night Visions”, “7th Heaven” and “Jason and the Argonauts”. Other his popular roles were as Bobby Ray in “To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar” and Jesse Ryan in “The Rage: Carrie 2”. He had minor roles in “Scandal”, “NCIS”, “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Ghost Whisperer” as well as the films “Dracula II: Ascension”, “Dracula III: Legacy”, “My First Miracle” and “Roswell FM”. Jason had recurring roles in “Shark Island”, “The Wishing Well” and “Monsterwolf” to name a few. His most recent roles are in “Trafficked”, “Nightworld”, and “Full Count” in 2020.

Relationships

Marriage to Charlie Spradling and Divorce

The details of the couple’s initial meeting and relationship remain unclear. However, it is known that Jason dated actress Charlie Spradling for two years prior to tying the knot in February of 1997. The marriage was to be short-lived thanks to a separation in 2002, but they did not officially divorce until the 18th of March, 2011. The couple share a daughter named Cooper London who remains in sole legal and physical custody of her mother. Jason, —who was ordered to pay $1000 a month in child support— filed a petition to modify the amount of child support claiming unemployment. He also pays a tax liability of $700 per month which wasn’t included in the original settlement. According to his declaration, ‘… If I am paying the full $700/month, I cannot afford another $1,000 on top of that’.

Who is Charlie Spradling?

Charlie Lynn Spradling was born in September of 1968, in Forth Worth, Texas, US.

There is not much information available on her early years, family and educational background, until in her teen years she joined the local children’s theater group, and performed in plays around her hometown for nine years. She later shifted to Hollywood, Los Angeles to pursue a full-time professional career in acting.

Her television debut was in 1985 in the television show “Growing Pains”, and her debut in film was in “The Blob” in 1988. She starred in television shows such as, “Full House”, “The Bradys” and “Dead at 21” as well as the movies, “Wild at Heart”, “Ski School” and “Bad Channels” in supporting roles. She earned a lead role in 1993 with “To Sleep With a Vampire”, and was then cast in more films, including “Convict 672”, “Broken Vessels” and “$pent”.

Her final role was in “A Midsummer Nights Rave” in 2002, after which she decided to drop acting, concluding a fifteen-year long career.

Charlie ventured into publishing shortly thereafter, became a senior executive at Pasadena Magazine as well as co-founder of the salad company, Stacked Sally, LLC. Additionally, she assisted in the design and launch of the direct mail publication, “The Arroyo Monthly”.

Marriage and Divorce from Sofia Karstens

After his brother introduced the two in 2008, Jason and Sofia became best friends and then lovers. Eventually, London proposed to the Canadian actress in November of 2010 with her grandmother’s ring, and tied the knot on the 16th of July the next year, in a private ceremony at Sofia’s parents’ home in North Hero, Vermont before moving into their home in Los Angeles to continue with their individual careers.

London reminisced, ‘It was a fairytale… I wish we could have slowed down time a little bit. It goes by so fast’. Just three years later, Sofia filed for legal separation from London. According to TMZ, ‘… It’s unclear why Sofia decided to end things … but we’re guessing his arrest last year factored in — the one where he was arrested for disorderly conduct/fighting and assault. Jason and Sofia released a joint statement saying they love and respect each other … but feel the breakup is necessary to “focus on some growth independently.”

Who is Sofia Karstens?

Sofia Jeanne Karstens is a Canadian film and television actress, well known for her roles in “Bad Blood”, “The Greatest Script Ever Written” and “Lovelace”. She graduated from the New York Universoty’s Tisch School of Arts, then made her film debut in 1998 with “The Census Taker”, and on television in the series “Sunset Beach” the following year.

Sofia has appeared in a number of films and shows since, including “Psych”, “Chicago 8”, “Crimes of the Mind” and most recently, “The Nurse”.

Hobbies, Favorite Things and Interesting Facts

When Jason returned to school after filming for “The Man in The Moon”, his peers wouldn’t believe that he’d done a movie. His twin said, ‘… for a long time they assumed we were lying. They didn’t want to believe it because we lived in a trailer park, and they thought we were just poor little trailer trash’. Eventually, they realized that the twins were telling the truth, and treated them differently.

In 2010, Jeremy London filed restraining orders against his mother and brother after they expressed doubts about his kidnapping. The twin was kidnapped at gun point and forced to do drugs in Palm Springs.

His attorney said, ‘Jeremy filed these orders against his family for them to stop giving unauthorized interviews to the press… what they’ve said is false, misleading and harmful to his personal reputation and career’.

Bar Brawl and Consequent Arrest

In April of 2015, London was arrested at the Martini Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona for a violent outburst. According to the police report, the brawl occured after Jason allegedly refused to apologize for sneezing in a man’s face, and punched him instead. When bouncers attempted to break-up the fight, London hit them too, causing them to retaliate in an attempt to ‘defend themselves’ against the actor. Apparently, he became aggressive towards the paramedics who tried to treat his wounds. The report stated ‘London showed obvious signs and symptoms of extreme alcohol impairment’ and he was charged with disorderly conduct and assault with intent to injure. On the way to jail, a police officer saw Jason ‘lean to the left and defecate in his pants’.
