Philip Anthony McKeon was born on November 11, 1964 in Westbury, New York, United States; he is the son of Donald McKeon and his wife, Barbara. He has a younger sister, Nancy McKeon, who is also an actress. Unfortunately, that’s all we know about his childhood, and his school career remains a mystery for now.
Philip’s career began when he was just four years old; his parents would take him and his sister to nearby modeling auditions, and he quickly 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 cast as Tommy Hyatt in the television series “Alice” (1976-1985), a role that made him a national star.

After that he starred in the film “Red Surf” in 1989 , while in 1991 he was Taylor in the movie “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-1990s.
Since that retirement, Philip has worked as a producer, and some of the projects he has worked on 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 main roles.
