Mackenzie Astin grew up with acting in his blood. The youngest son of actors Patty Duke and John Astin, he entered the family trade at the age of 9 and found early success on the iconic '80s television show The Facts of Life, where he spent the better part of four seasons.
As an adult, his work has broadened to include more complicated and dynamic characters, including roles on some of today's most exciting programs - Scandel, Shameless, House and Lost among them.
Ever the eager participant in independent film, Mackenzie’s other recent work includes Lonely Boy and the upcoming Men’s Group and Moments of Clarity.
Mackenzie currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Jennifer.
