Born in Hawaii and the younger of two children, Austin Peck and his family moved several times due to his father's position in the Navy, finally settling in Los Angeles when he was nine. Peck was sixteen when a talent agent discovered him and made his television debut in a Kellogg's Pop Tarts commercial. Work as an international model soon followed and Peck was lucky to grace the pages of GQ, Vogue Hommes, British Vogue and Esquire before he eventually turned to acting. In 1995, Peck landed the role on "Days of our Lives," taking over the popular role of Austin and quickly making the character his own.
Since leaving "Days of Our Lives" 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." Peck 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."
When "Days of Our Lives" expressed interest in bringing Peck and his character back to Salem, he jumped at the chance to return to his old stomping ground. "After swimming around the ocean of Hollywood for a few years, it's nice to be back on the dry land of 'Days,'" Peck says.
A self-taught sketch artist, Peck lives with his wife and their two young sons in Los Angeles. Peck's birthday is April 9.
