MISSOURI NATIVE CHARLIE Weber (@thecharlieweber) may live and work in Los Angeles, but for the actor, Dallas will always be a home away from home. “I’ve always found Dallas to be an eclectic place with great food and great music, and I love the sense of community there,” he says. Weber’s family now calls Dallas home and he enjoys spending time there when he’s not starring as Frank Delfino in ABC’s hit legal drama series, How to Get Away With Murder. Today, the show is in its fourth season and Weber is humbled by the enduring support. “It’s amazing that we keep getting allowed to do this,” he says, speaking of his dynamic cast and crew, which includes Viola Davis and Shonda Rhimes. The job is a dream role for Weber, who grew up watching TV and movies and pondering an acting career. After moving to New York in 1998, Weber modeled before turning his attention to the acting profession. “It all kind of unfolded,” he says, adding, “I got pretty lucky pretty young.” In the coming months, Weber will be focused on the success of the show’s next season and bringing his star character to life. “Right now it’s all Frank, all the time,” he says. When the filming stops, however, he’ll find his way back to his Lone Star hideaway. In Dallas, Weber can be found eating at restaurants such as Kansas City barbecue hot spot 18th & Vine on Maple Avenue and the always bustling Shinsei on Lovers Lane, or relaxing at watering holes such as Oak Highlands Brewery in East Dallas, which just so happens to be his brother-in-law’s business. In the end, the city provides him with a balance of family and friends, relaxation and respite. For Charlie Weber, it’s how to get away.
