Levi Fiehler is an American actor who is known for playing Mayor Ben Hawthorne in Resident Alien, a science fiction mystery comedy-drama television series, and Troy Johnson in The Fosters, a family drama television series, among others. Having been in the industry for over a decade, he is beginning to leave his footprints on the sands of time as a thespian.
Standing at about 6 feet 1 inch in height, Fiehler has not just been blessed with a sterling acting talent, but also fine body features which have attracted many female fans to him. With his career catching on fresh steam, he has begun to make lots of waves around the USA and is believed to be on course to stand shoulder to shoulder with some of the greats in Hollywood.
Levi Fiehler was Born in Alaska
An American man, Levi Fiehler was born in Juneau, the capital city of the state of Alaska, USA. It is believed that this was where he also spent his days growing up with his family. Very little is known about Fiehler’s private life and background at the moment and this is mainly because he has spoken very little about his family or his days as a youngster.
Because he is such a private individual, details about his family members are not in the public domain just yet. His parents’ identities, as well as what they do for a living, have not been revealed and it is not certain if he has any siblings or if he is an only child. Some reports have claimed he has two siblings with whom he shares a close bond. However, this has not been independently verified.
It is also not clear where he had his elementary or high school education. However, some reports have claimed he developed a love for acting from when he was very little and acted in school plays while in high school.
How Old is Levi Fiehler?
Levi Fiehler is so private about his life that even his real age is not known. It is noteworthy that there are no records of him celebrating his birthday to give fans a clue of what year he was born. In recent times, there have been quite a number of speculations in the media about what his date of birth may be. Some reports have claimed that he is in his 30s at the moment, however, this claim has not been authentically verified just yet.
It is even more difficult to get to know much about this movie star because he is not visible on social media. A quick scan through the major social media platforms shows he is not registered on any of them. This is quite surprising considering how mich actors rely on social media to connect with fans in the contemporary world.
It appears that Levi Fiehler used to be on Instagram as different reports have quoted a particular handle that was linked to him in the past. However, for some reason, the Instagram page has now been deactivated. It is not clear why this happened.
Fiehler Studied Acting
Levi Fiehler is a good actor and many fans and critics have attested to this before. However, what some people do not know is that the actor had to work really hard to perfect his craft, including studying the art of acting at credible institutions.
As we have mentioned earlier, it is not clear where he had his elementary or high school education. However, we know that Levi Fiehler studied acting at some point in his life. According to our findings, the actor actually studied at the Perseverance Theatre, a professional theater company located on Douglas Island in Juneau, Alaska.
Some other reports have also claimed that Levi Fiehler studied acting at the Sanford Meisner Studio in California where he trained under the esteemed actor and director, Alex Taylor. This is apparently where he honed his skills as an actor, having had the opportunity to train with some of the big names in the theatre world.
Levi Fiehler Began His Hollywood Journey in 2008
After he had finished studying acting, Levi Fiehler proceeded to begin auditioning for movie roles. The actor eventually landed his first screen role in 2008 when he was cast to portray Adam in In the Moment, a drama TV series. Fiehler starred in the series from 2008 to 2009, making appearances in four episodes and becoming familiar with how the system worked.
Fiehler’s work on In The Moment proved to directors that he was very a very talented actor. Even though he was clearly a greenhorn, he put up such a display that it became certain he would be landing more roles almost immediately.
In 2009, after he had finished work on In The Moment, Fiehler landed his first feature film role when he was cast to play the role of Cal in Moonshine Inc., a romance/comedy film. Incidentally, this also happened to be his first lead role. It showed him playing a man who moved to Los Angeles to start a small hypnotherapy business but ended up finding something more dramatic there.
This role helped to make Fiehler even more visible to producers and directors and increased his chances of landing more jobs. In 2010, he scored another lead role as he was cast to play the leading man, Danny Coogan in Puppet Master: Axis of Evil, an action horror film. The movie, which was the ninth official entry into the Puppet Master series of horror films, made quite some buzz after its release and got Fiehler some praise from critics.
Fiehler continued his Hollywood adventure in 2011 with a role in the short film, Thank You, Mr. President. The same year, he was cast to play Kyle in Wolf Town, a horror/thriller film. By this time, Fiehler was already bagging lead roles quite regularly. Also, in 2011, he appeared in two short films; Waffles and Monty. He also starred in an episode of the TV series, Valley Fever.
In 2012, Levi Fiehler was cast to portray Bill Tilghman in Wyatt Earp’s Revenge, an American Western drama film, alongside Val Kilmer and Matt Dallas.

He also made an appearance in an episode of the series, Emily Owens M.D., and played Mark in the TV movie, A Christmas Wedding Date.

At this time, he had already developed great confidence in his acting ability and knew his way around the Hollywood arena.
In 2014, the actor played Curtis Garret in ETXR and Det. Danny Gunkle in the short film, Murder Bullet. The same year, he appeared in an episode of Ray Donovan, a crime drama television series. Ray Donovan was so popular around the world that it broke viewership records on Showtime. Even though he appeared in just one episode of the show, the popularity of Ray Donovan helped to give Levi Fiehler much-needed exposure to wider audiences.
In 2015, Fiehler kept pushing his popularity to wider levels after he made appearances in an episode of the award-winning procedural forensics crime drama television series, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, playing Brad Jeffries. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation was very popular in 2015 and this also helped boost Fiehler’s career and visibility as an actor. The same year, he played Keith in the Drama/Romance movie, Glitch.
How ‘The Fosters’ Boosted His Popularity
By 2016, more people had started knowing about Levi Fiehler, especially because of his short appearances in the high-profile TV series. That year, he consolidated on his growing popularity and landed a role in the American family drama television series called The Fosters.
The show was massive, receiving mainly favorable reviews and winning several awards. So, Fiehler’s appearances on the show only helped to magnify his image. He starred in about 5 episodes of The Fosters, becoming more well-known. The same year, he starred in an episode of the TV series, The Picture, playing Peter Shepherd.
He also played Pete Milman in the TV movie, Diagnosis Delicious and appeared in an episode of the American crime drama television series, Murder in the First. In 2017, the actor played Izzy in the TV movie, Mission Control.
In 2018, Fiehler was cast to play Cameron Pate in Mars, a hard science fiction television series produced by National Geographic. The series attracted lots of attention and got Fiehler more fans in the process. The same year, he starred in the American military drama television series, SEAL Team, playing Edward Miller. He also portrayed Jake Mandel in the medical drama television series, Code Black.
How ‘Resident Alien’ Changed His Life
In 2021, Levi Fiehler scored the biggest role of his career when he was cast in Resilient Alien, an American science fiction mystery comedy-drama television series to play Mayor Ben Hawthorne. The series debuted to largely favorable reviews and criticisms. It soon became one of the rave-making series in the USA.
In August 2021, the series won the Hollywood Critics Association TV Award for Best Cable Series and has since been nominated for many other awards. It attracted serious attention, giving the actors a lot of visibility. Levi Fiehler, as one of the major players in the series, rode with the buzz to gain a lot of praise around the USA and the rest of the world.
The future is apparently very bright for the actor who has been variously tipped to soon become one of the big players in Hollywood if he continues at the pace he is going at the moment.

How Tall is Levi Fiehler?
According to our findings, Levi Fiehler currently stands at 6 feet 1 inch in height. This translates to about 185 cm. This makes him a very tall man. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the average height for American men 20 years old and up is about 5 feet 9 inches.
This means that Levi Fiehler’s height of 6 feet 1 inch places the actor head and shoulder above most men in the USA. He is also blessed with a handsome face and attractive body build.
Is He The Tallest Resident Alien Cast Member?
A quick check through the many cast members of the Resident Alien TV series shows that Levi Fiehler is actually the tallest member of the main cast consisting of Alan Tudyk, Sara Tomko, Corey Reynolds, Alice Wetterlund, Judah Prehn, and Elizabeth Bowen.
From our checks, we realized that Tudyk is 5 feet 11 inches tall, Tomko is 5 feet 7 inches tall, Reynolds is 5 feet 9 inches tall, Wetterlund is 5 feet 8 inches tall, Prehn is 4 feet 3 inches tall, and Bowen is 5 feet 4 inches tall. So, none of them is as tall as Fiehler who is 6 feet 1 inch tall.
However, we also found out that Fiehler is not the tallest person on the show if the recurring cast members and guest stars are included. For instance, we found out that Ben Cotton, a Canadian film and television actor who happens to be a recurring cast member of Resident Alien is actually 6 feet 3 inches tall making him about 2 inches taller than Levi Fiehler.
Also, Gary Farmer, another recurring cast member who also incidentally happens to be an actor and musician from Canada, is 6 feet 2 inches tall making him one inch taller than Fiehler. Yet another Canadian-American actor and recurrent cast member, Nathan Fillion is also 6 feet 2 inches tall. So, while Fiehler is the tallest main cast member of the Resident Alien series, he is not the tallest overall star on the show. That spot is occupied by Ben Cotton.
