Gilmore was cast as Bobby Draper in Mad Men in 2009. He was the third actor to play the character, after Maxwell Huckabee and Aaron Hart, since 2007 when the character was originated.

In 2011, Jared left Mad Men and was cast in Once Upon a Time as Henry Mills, the adopted son of Regina Mills and biological son of Emma Swan. Series creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis stated of the role, "One of our emotional centers was an 11-year-old boy who had to be precocious and vulnerable at the same time." Kitsis believed that Gilmore "naturally brought [these characteristics] out... We just knew he had to be our Henry!" Gilmore commented, "I relate to Henry, because I'm 11 and also have a very good imagination. I enjoy making up and playing games in worlds with alternate realities myself."

At the 33rd Young Artist Awards, he won the Award for Best Performance in a TV Series – Leading Young Actor. The following year, at the 34th Young Artist Awards, he was nominated for Best Performance in a TV Series – Leading Young Actor. He was also included among the cast of Mad Men when it won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series in 2010 for season 3.

Personal life

He was born on May 30, 2000, in San Diego, California. For two years, he attended John Robert Powers San Diego, a training school for actors, models, and singers.

According to Variety, Gilmore unintentionally began his acting career after running into talent representatives who were interested in his twin sister, Taylor. After many auditions, he acquired his first jobs through modeling T-shirts and acting in commercials.

In March 2019, Gilmore was signed to the Overwatch League team Atlanta Reign as a streamer, under the handle "CowboyBeBAMF".
