Austin Peck was just 16 when he began modeling and pursuing film and television roles at the suggestion of friends and a commercial agent in Los Angeles. Two years and several photo shoots later, Peck found himself modeling in Paris, Milan, Morocco, the Virgin Islands, and Rome. He then appeared in fashion layouts for many publications, including Esquire, GQ, Vogue Hommes, and British Vogue.
Peck made his network television debut on Days of our Lives in April 1995 as Austin Reed, a romantic and daring boxer-turned-executive.
In 1997 Peck and his co-star, Christie Clark, won the Soap Opera Digest Award for Hottest Romance.
Peck was born in Hawaii but moved with his family to San Francisco when he was four years old and then relocated to Los Angeles four years later. At 19, after returning from his modeling assignments, Peck began studying stage acting with Milton Stevens at the Stella Adler Conservatory. He later moved to New York City, where he studied with Sherry Landrum and Terry Somner at the New Actors Workshop and with Richard Southern at Three of Us Studios.
After leaving DAYS in 2002, Peck has added many small and big screen credits to his name, including Strong Medicine, The District, Charmed, Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, and independent movies Breaking Dawn and Dating Games People Play. He is also actively involved in the theater; as a member of Theater 40 in Beverly Hills, he recently appeared to rave reviews in Blue Silence and Japanese Death Poem.
On his own time, Peck stays active by boxing and inline skating. An accomplished cartoonist, he enjoys sketching caricatures of family members, friends, and co-stars. He also enjoys music of all types. His birthday is April 9.
