Keegan Allen grew up in LA off of the Sunset Strip. He grew up in the business and the business grew up around him. His dad is an actor and his mom is a painter/artist. He didn't come into the business as an actor, he was more into editing and doing things behind the camera. While in high school and college he was really interested in video production and he wanted to know how the cameras and cinematography worked. He had always been involved in theater since he was very young, as he had always been fascinated by watching his dad get into characters and scene studies. He is thankful to his parents, and is grateful for all his fans for getting him this far. 

Keegan made his acting debut in the 2002 short film, Small Emergencies. He did not act again until 2010 when he starred in Big Time Rush as he had been focusing on school and his other hobbies.

Photography is a big part of Keegan Allen himself as he carries a camera around almost everywhere he goes and takes professional and artistic pictures, often posting them to his Instagram @keeoone. After his role in BTR, he was seen in As a Last Resort, CSI, I Hate My Teenage Daughter and Bukowski. In 2010, Keegan auditioned for Pretty Little Liars to play Wren, but received the part of Toby instead.
