Cassidy Freeman is one of Hollywood’s many starlets who is making a name for herself as an actress. According to her fans, she has a lot of talent and makes her characters come to life on the silver screen, as well as on television. She is most famously known for her role as Tess Mercer in ‘Smallville’. Let’s take a look at who Cassidy really is.

Early life and family

Cassidy was born 22 April 1982, in Chicago, Illinois USA.

Her parents, Lee and Glynna Freeman, were prominent attorneys in the area. They also own a cattle ranch situated in Montana. Cassidy is the youngest of three kids and the only girl as well. Her brothers are Clark, an actor, and Crispin a voice actor.

Although it has not been officially confirmed, Cassidy has Jewish, Scottish and German ancestry. It is assumed by the lack of scandalous reports to be found, that Cassidy had a normal and happy childhood and upbringing.

Educational background

Despite being a popular actress, not too much is really known about her education. She did attend the Latin School of Chicago, and then went on to graduate from Middlebury College in 2005, with degrees in Spanish and Theater.


Cassidy toured Vietnam with her mother. and when she returned home she scooped up the role of Gemma in the acclaimed stage production ‘Cigarettes and Chocolates’. She did very well as in her role of Gemma, who spoke up for the Catholic tradition of Lent.

A talent manager from Los Angeles took note of her during the production. After this, in 2006 she skyrocketed to fame when she got the role of high-tech thief Veronica Sharp in the award-winning short film, ‘Razor Sharp’. Two years later, Cassidy appeared in ‘Smallville’ as Tess Mercer and stuck with the show for three years until its end in 2011.

Cassidy has appeared in many shows since then – ‘CSI’, ‘NCIS’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’ amongst others. She is also admired for her role as Cady Longmire in the Netflix show, ‘Longmire’.

In 2010 she also starred in (and was the executive producer) the gritty Indie film, ‘Yellow Brick Road’, alongside her brother, Clark. The film was based on true events that took place in a remote area in New Hampshire, about a group of friends who bravely entered the woods to search for a whole town that went missing in the 1940s.

Since 2019, Cassidy has been playing the leading role in ‘The Righteous Gemstones’, in which she portrays Amber Gemstone.

Hobbies, favourite things and interesting facts

For the most part, Cassidy keeps her private life out of the limelight, but we’ve gathered that she can sing and also play the piano. She is part of a three-piece band – ‘The Real D’Coy’ – with Clark (her brother) playing the drums, and herself the piano. Cassidy’s hobbies are all about being outside, taking things quietly or being active. She often plays volleyball and water polo, and also enjoys hiking, snowboarding, water skiing, diving and horseback riding, depending on her mood. She has a Swiss Mountain pooch called Shasta.

She is part of the charity called ‘Heal the Bay’, which is focused on cleaning and protecting the west coast waters. As part of the ‘Virginia Avenue Project’, Cassidy has tutored children in Santa Monica as well. It is not quite clear what she taught the children though. Aside from being a talented actress, she is also considered good at modern dancing as well as hip-hop.

Romantic Relationships

As someone who values her privacy, Cassidy has not let much slip about her romantic experiences.

Not much is even known about her husband, Justin Carpenter. ‘Affair Post’ reports that Cassidy and Justin married in 2012, on 23 September. The two had been dating secretly for a while before tying the knot. Their wedding was a private affair likely attended by loved ones and close friends.

Cassidy and Justin have a daughter together. but nothing is known about her and it seems that the actress would prefer to keep it that way.

1I think I give off a strong energy. I'm 5'9", I'm pretty athletic and I'm pretty outspoken.
2If people recognize me from 'The Vampire Diaries,' they just give me that look that's like, 'I think I know you. I think I saw you boxing in 1912, but I'm not sure,' because it was such a short-lived run.
3I am such that person that, when I'm working, I'm like, 'Oh, what I wouldn't give for a weekend off!' And then, as soon as I have more that 18 hours without anything to do, I start shaking. It's really funny.
4I'd love to do a film. I'd love to play a character that I know the beginning, middle and end of.
5Every job I've had since 'Smallville' has wanted me to have red hair, so I have to thank 'Smallville' for that. But, just the fact that it was so different was appealing to me. As an actor, you want to be able to play a lot of different things.
6My dad and my brother have Google alerts out on me.
