Mark Webber (actor)
Mark Allen Webber
July 19, 1980
Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.
|Occupation||Actor, screenwriter, director|
Webber was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he spent the first nine years of his life. His mother, Cheri Lynn Honkala, is a noted advocate for the homeless in Philadelphia, and was the vice-presidential nominee of the Green Party in the 2012 presidential election. In 1989 he and his single mother moved to Philadelphia, where they spent time homeless, living in cars and abandoned buildings, and struggling to survive during the harsh winters. Webber's life was subsequently the subject of a major news magazine story. He and his mother have been for many years and still are outspoken homeless advocates. They organize walks in protest, help to educate voters, and volunteer to help provide food and shelter to the urban poor in Philadelphia and elsewhere. Cheri Honkala ran for Sheriff of Philadelphia in 2011 with the Green Party on a "no evictions" platform.
Webber began his acting career in 1998. He favors "offbeat independent productions and challenging roles that involve intense characterization."
In March 2019, Webber was cast as Grey McConnell in the ABC crime drama series Stumptown which was written by Jason Richman. After the series was ordered he dropped out due to creative differences, and the role was re-cast with Jake Johnson.
Webber was formerly in a relationship with actress Frankie Shaw. They have a son together. The end of his relationship with Shaw inspired Webber to create his film The End of Love, which starred Webber and his son and premiered at Sundance in January 2012. Webber and Shaw share joint custody of their son.
In September 2012, Webber began dating Australian actress Teresa Palmer after she contacted him via Twitter. They became engaged in August 2013, and married on December 21, 2013 in Mexico. Their first child, a son, was born in February 2014. Webber and Palmer reside in the Beachwood Canyon community of Los Angeles. Their second son was born in December 2016. In April 2019, they had a daughter. In February 2021, Palmer announced she is expecting their fourth child together, Webber's fifth.
