Jackson Walker is an American actor who played Franklin Fell in Season One episode You're Undead to Me of The Vampire Diaries.


In 1993, while working in Atlanta as an architect, Jackson Walker was cast in the first independent feature film of acclaimed director, Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Jumper). In 1994, he moved to Los Angeles to start a career in set and production design, but landed more acting roles than design jobs. For the next ten years, he consistently appeared in national commercials, episodic television, pilots and independent films. In 2004, he wrote, co-directed and starred in an award winning short film, Tin Man, filmed entirely on his farm in Dublin, Georgia. In 2007, he produced and starred in an independent feature film, 12 FL OZ, filmed on location in Dublin/Laurens County, and screening at 2009/2010 film festivals around the world.

He recently appeared, to critical acclaim, in the Golden Globe nominated film by Denzel Washington, The Great Debaters.

He and his wife of nearly ten years, Buffy Burns-Walker, are tireless supporters of SIDS charities after the sudden and unexpected death of their third child, Nash, in December 2005.
