Four kids. Three brothers. Two Parents. One Sister. Coming from a“boundaryless, lovely, incredible Jewish Family,” Skylar Astin stands out from most. Today, it is hard to find down to earth people who understand the basic values no matter what industry you work in. For Astin, he entered Hollywood and has continued on his path of light as he continues to grow into the incredible actor he is. Currently starring on ‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist,’ Astin is having the time of his life. “We know you are going to like it,” said Astin’s agent and manager. Well this was a first. Never have they given him a read on what they think he would enjoy playing. So there he was, flipping through the script, and as he shared, “by page two, I knew that I loved the banter between Max and Zoey right off the top – it was pretty much a ‘yes’. So reading the whole script was just me in my head going “God I hope that there isn’t something that makes me not want to do this all of a sudden.” This was the easiest yes Astin has ever given.

great sensibility in ‘Max’ but where they differ is the lack of ambition his on-screen character has. After all, Astin knew at the age of thirteen that acting was his calling and he never stopped working for it since his first community production of “Godspell” in which he played Jesus. But as they say, ‘you are only as good as your team’ and his team exceeded all expectations. “This cast is unbelievable. Honestly the actors, let alone the musical talent, blow me away. And then there’s a musical day and you get blown away by everyone’s extra special talents as well,” shared Astin. “We all get He finds a lot of his open-mindalong very well.” edness, dry wit, big heart, and

But hold up. Can we just take a moment to look at the fact that there are many musical numbers? Challenge accepted. Astin has experience with this which made it easier for him to know how to properly shoot a musical sequence. Hearing the happiness in his voice, he expressed:

“I don’t get nervous when I have to sing, those are some of my favorite days. It’s not like a nerve, it’s an excitement and an energy that you can only get on those days.” The level of focus on those days is at its highest point, bringing much joy to the actor. Before acting and singing, Astin was just a regular boy who leaned more towards sports but also played the piano. His grandfather played a big role in his life and left a strong impact on him that has lasted since his childhood. “You are still playing the piano, yes?” he would

ask. “Well yeah of course Grandpa, that’s what I play,” Astin would answer. To this day, his grandpa is like an inner voice that he has always had. Whenever it has been a while since he played the instrument, he thinks of his grandpa asking him about it. As he opened up, “So I love that. That’s stayed with me forever.” This is a good time to think about those in our lives who have a strong impact on our being. A time to think of them and be grateful. It’s the little things. Growing up, Astin went through a JNCO jeans phase in middle school and was “half of a skater for about five minutes.” That did not last. But plot twist, he did love to rollerblade. Laughingly he said, “I remember that I had the chocolate blades without the brakes, so that was kind of a rebellious situation. But that’s about as hard as I went.” The now actor/ singer used to be a real athlete but everything fell into place when he got “bit by the theater bug.” He went from all boys sports camps to the Stagedoor Manor Performing Arts Center. And now look at where he is! Dreams do come true.

Skylar Astin comes from a loving family where they “talk over each other and it’s all love, all the time.” Everyone is creative from his sister who incorporates art with her students in the curriculum to his brother who is a sous-chef in NYC. His kind demeanor and ambition stems from his parents who, as he expressed, “raised us in a way where we’re all very close and there were never any favorites, so we all understand the influence of the family unit.” Something many do not get to experience which makes him all the more unique. With his job, he travels and moves a lot so even though he can’t pack his family, he does have his essentials to feel right at home: Crystals. Apple TV. Cologne. Playing in musical numbers and in a new movie called Society of Second Born Royals on Disney+, Astin is as happy as one can be. Looking to “expand his resume” and work in different genres, the talented actor has finally reached a level in which he believes in himself completely. Skylar Astin inspires those around him and as he ended on a strong note: “I do believe that it’s only a matter of time before people really see what I have to offer than some of the roles that they’ve already seen me play.”
