Brock Vincent Phill Hurn (born August 19, 1991), better known as Brock O'Hurn, is an American model, actor, and fitness trainer.

Early life[edit]

Brock O'Hurn was born in Sacramento, California, the oldest of maid Paige (née Hillenbrand) and Adam Hurn, who separated when he was nine years old.[citation needed] He has three siblings, sisters Aspyn and Carly, and brother Drake. He is of English, Irish, French and German descent. O'Hurn attended nine different schools across California, causing his education to suffer[neutrality is disputed]. O'Hurn discovered bodybuilding during his sophomore year in high school after being dissatisfied with his body, weighing at 135 pounds at the time[citation needed].

After graduation, O'Hurn briefly worked with his uncle's company that installed heating and cooling systems before getting jobs for Abercrombie and Fitch and True Religion.


O'Hurn gained international fame through his Instagram account where he was recognized for his height, physique and for popularizing the man bun. He admitted that he was confused by the sudden fame saying, “I was like, 'Is this a joke? Do I just have to keep lifting people? This is my life?'”[1] O'Hurn worked with Tyler Perry in the 2016 film Boo! A Madea Halloween, making his acting debut as frat boy Horse. He reprised the role in the sequel Boo 2! A Madea Halloween (2017). He also stars in Perry's television series Too Close to Home.[2]
