Erik Per Sullivan was born on July 21, 1991, in Worcester, Massachusetts to Ann and Fred Sullivan. He is best known for portraying Dewey in the Fox Television show Malcolm in the Middle. He was seen in the show with Frankie Muniz and Bryan Cranston that aired fifteen years ago. The funny storey, marvellous cast, and parenting practices revealed in this show nearly dominated television during that time.
Erik appeared on the show for 151 episodes before going on to act in several other series and films, as well as providing voiceovers. Erik appeared to be a good potential actor with a great future when he acted for Christmas with the Kranks and Joe Dirt. Unfortunately, people stopped seeing him in the Film industry shortly after the release of his last film, Twelve, in 2010. Quite a few Hollywood stars have quit the industry and vanished, including Erik Per Sullivan.

Erik’s mom, Ann Sullivan, is Swedish, so he is fluent in both English and Swedish. He learned to play the piano and the saxophone as a child. Later on, he learned Japanese as well.

Erik Per Sullivan’s acting career
Erik was first seen in an uncredited role in the sci-fi film Armageddon, which was released in 1998. In spite of his fans already knowing him as Dewey from Malcolm in the Middle, Erik first appeared in the sci-fi film. The storey revolved around deep-core drillers being sent by NASA to intercept an asteroid on its way to Earth. Erik Per Sullivan appeared briefly in the film with a rocket ship.

Erik Per Sullivan had a lot of positions in American films and television shows, but Malcolm in the Middle cemented his reputation.

Surprisingly, Chase has always been in the news, and in 2017 she was caught driving a stolen car. Many people believe Erik’s acting career was cut short due to his romantic relationship with Chase.

Jane Kaczmarek, who played Lois in Malcolm in the Middle, had said that Bryan Cranston liked all his fellow actors and Erik was one of them.
Erik was clearly a member of the cast and loved by all, as evidenced by the actors’ comments on the show. However, he is now seen doing things other than acting on his social media accounts. As we know that after his last movie Twelve in 2009, Erik disappeared from the Hollywood industry unexpectedly. Many fans claim that he left acting because of his romantic relationship with Daveigh Chase while others say that it was because he wanted to live a normal life.
