Who plays Ian Gallagher?
What is Ian Gallagher’s real name? Cameron Riley Monaghan (born 1993 or 1994) is an American actor and model. He is known for his role as Ian Gallagher on the Showtime comedy-drama series Shameless and as twins Jerome and Jeremiah Valeska, who serve as origins for the Joker, on the DC Comics-based TV series Gotham.
Are Mickey and Ian together in real life? The ‘Shameless’ actors who play Ian and Mickey are not married in real life. Monaghan and Fisher never dated off-screen; however, they are very close. In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, Fisher opened up about how the two act off-screen.
Why did Ian leave Shameless in season 4? To hear the actor tell it, the decision was a mix of wanting to spread his wings creatively and “business,” meaning his contract was up and he likely earned a pay bump to return to Showtime’s highest-rated scripted original at a time when it was losing its leading lady, Emmy Rossum.
