Philip McKeon Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education
Philip Anthony McKeon was born on the 11th November 1964, in Westbury, New York State USA; he is the son of Donald McKeon and his wife, Barbara. He has a younger sister, Nancy McKeon, who is an actress as well. Unfortunately, this is all that we know about his childhood, and his educational background for now remains a mystery.
Philip’s career started when he was just four years old; his parents would take him and his sister to nearby modeling auditions, and he soon became a model, appearing in local magazines, television commercials, and newspapers.
He continued to develop his modeling career, and after several years, he made his acting debut. He was chosen for the part of Tommy Hyatt in the TV comedy series “Alice” (1976-1985), a role which made him a national star. One of his first roles after “Alice” ended, was as Richard Farley in the horror film “Return to Horror High” in 1987. After this, he starred in the film “Red Surf” in 1989, while in 1991 he was Taylor in the film “976-Evil II”. In 1993 he was Gordie in the horror film “Sandman” (1993), and his last role was as Demon in the comedy horror film “Ghoulies IV” (1994). He ‘retired’, at least as an actor, for the first time in the mid- ‘90s.
Since that retirement, Philip has worked as a producer, and some of the projects on which he worked include the thriller drama “Murder in the First” (1995), starring Christian Slater, Kevin Bacon, and Gary Oldman, and the fantasy mystery-drama film “The Jacket” in 2005, with Adrien Brody, Keira Knightley, and Daniel Craig in the lead roles.
