Skylar Astin Biography:
Born in New York City, Skylar Astin grew up in Rockland County. As a kid, he attended school at Clarkstown High School North, and, upon graduating, he pursued his dreams of a career in the entertainment industry. He then attended Stagedoor Manor, a performing arts summer camp in New York. After this, he moved to become a student at the Tisch School of Arts at New York University. But, he took a leave of absence after winning a Broadway role in Spring Awakening.
It was during this run that he won his first professional on-screen role, playing Rand Posin in the comedy film Hamlet 2 (2008). The film was a modest success and led to Astin signing with United Talent Agency. After odd appearances in television, and joining the cast of theater show Rent, Astin secured his breakout movie role in the hit film Pitch Perfect (2012). He then went on to reprise his role in the sequel Pitch Perfect 2 (2015), as well as starring in 21 & Over (2013).
Skylar has stuck with comedy in recent times and most recently can be seen in the comedy flicks Flock of Dudes (2016), and Speech & Debate (2017). On the small screen, he has been playing the role of Isaiah Miller in American comedy series Graves. He started dating his Pitch Perfect co-star Anna Camp in 2013, and the couple were married in 2016.
