Secrets: "It's not a flaw!" Ben is hypersensitive. He can't stand sudden noises and flashing lights - they set him off into full-on panic mode.

Personality: Ben is, first and foremost, a very charismatic person. He can charm almost anyone with his smile alone. As an actor, he's not bad either. Being with him, he can make you feel like the most important person in the world, because he has this way of making people feel like they're very important to him, and you'd never even guess he's just acting.

Ben gains trust easily, and is definitely one of the popular crowd. He's got a very smooth way of speaking, and can generally avoid revealing things about himself. He's especially good with girls, but has, thankfully, never tried to charm his way into their pants. Yet. He has very high expectations of himself, and tries extremely hard without showing it. His parents have extremely high expectations for him, and he intends not to let them down.

History: Like many of the students at Melrose Academy, Ben was born to celebrities - Camden Taylor, an actor, and Livvi Knight, model. He led a pretty sheltered life, with his father constantly away filming. Although he did not see much of his father, his mother stayed around, always taking care of him. Camden was rather stern with Ben when he was around, and it didn't take Ben long enough to figure out that his father was hoping that he could be as famous as he was.

Once Ben realised that, he began doing all he could. Every chance he got, he tried to impress Camden, hoping that his father would give his approval. He never did. Livvi was extremely supportive, though. She managed to convince Camden to allow Ben into Melrose Academy. Ben quickly became popular, and has been working hard for four years, wanting only his father's praise.
Place of Origin: Fountain Valley, Orange County, California, USA.

Theme Song: Hall of Fame - The Script ft.
Anything else: N/A
