Chris Zylka is an American actor and model who plays Jake Armstrong in The Secret Circle. Originally a guest star in the show, he officially joined the main cast in mid-season.

Zylka then landed a 16-episode recurring role as Joey Donner in 10 Things I Hate About You.

Zylka began to move into films around this time, appearing in The People I've Slept With before starring in the Made-for-TV horror My Super Psycho Sweet 16.
