Biggs began his career in television on the soap opera As the World Turns, for which he won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series. He also appeared on the shows Drexel's Class and Total Security.

The Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey native started acting at the age of five, with national commercials and modeling.
