Criminal Minds Wiki

Mackenzie Alexander Astin is an American actor.


Astin was born on May 12, 1973, in Los Angeles, California, to Patty Duke and John Astin, both actors. He has an older half-brother, Sean Astin, who is also an actor. He attended Ralph Waldo Emerson Middle School and University High School in Los Angeles. Astin made his acting debut when he was nine years old, starring in the made-for-TV movie Lois Gibbs and the Love Canal, but he is most likely best known for his television role as Andy Moffitt, which he assumed in four seasons, from 1985 to 1988, on the popular TV sitcom The Facts of Life. He has also made guest appearances on Lost, House, Psych, Grey's Anatomy, NCIS, and Criminal Minds.

Astin also made appearances in movies, including Iron Will, Wyatt Earp, The Evening Star, and The Last Days of Disco. During filming of The Evening Star, Mackenzie lost the top edge of his right ear when he got in a car accident. In order to match scenes previously filmed, he had to be fitted with a prosthetic attachment to his ear for the remainder of the film's production. From 2005 to 2010, he worked with his father, who works as the director of the Program in Theatre Arts and Studies at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. In his personal life, Astin is married to Jennifer Abbott Astin.
