Born in Santa Monica, California, Tyler Garcia Posey began performing in commercials at the age of five. His father, actor/writer John Posey, brought Tyler with him on movie and television sets before the boy could even walk. Tyler made his feature film debut with a small role in Men Of Honor (2000), starring Robert De Niro. His first big break came at the age of eight, when he landed a role alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger in Collateral Damage (2002). The feature film, originally due to come out in 2001, was postponed and came out early in 2002 instead. At nine, he landed a recurring lead role on the TV series Doc. The series, filmed in Toronto, features Billy Ray Cyrus as Doc Cassidy, a Montana country doctor who ends up in New York City. Posey plays Raul Garcia, a young boy who is orphaned in the series' pilot, but is taken under Cassidy's wing. In 2001, Posey received a Young Artist Award nomination for Best Performance in a TV Comedy Series - Supporting Young Actor. During a break in filming from Doc, Tyler played Jennifer Lopez's son in the feature Maid in Manhattan (2002). He then returned to Toronto to continue his role on Doc, for PAX TV. In 2011, when Tyler was in his late teens, he landed the starring role in the MTV summer series Teen Wolf, an action drama series about a young man who becomes a werewolf, but struggles to remain good. The show is now in it's fifth and final season. Tyler will soon host his own MTV late night talk show.
