Personal life[edit]

Mitchell was born on 27 July 1967 in Los Angeles, California, the son of a garment manufacturer.[2] Mitchell is Jewish, of Ukrainian background.[3] In 1990, he married Jeannette Robbins. The two had four children together before divorcing in 1997. During Mitchell's marriage to Robbins, police were called to the couple's home to investigate reports of domestic abuse. In 1996, Mitchell was convicted of misdemeanor battery, spousal abuse and child endangerment stemming from an altercation with his wife. He was given three years’ probation and ordered to perform community service and attend counseling classes for spouse abusers. After violating his probation, he was sentenced to 30 days in jail.[4] In 2002, Mitchell was on Entertainment Tonight and came clean about the incident and it was revealed that he was protecting his children from his ex-wife, who was addicted to drugs at the time of the arrests. Mitchell ended up getting custody of their four children with his ex-wife given limited visitation.

In December 2010, Sasha married his second wife Rachel Mitchell, also known as Sharmaine Rayner. Sasha filed for divorce from Rachel in spring of 2015.[5]


Prior to acting, Mitchell was often used as a model for Bruce Weber's fashion photography.[6]

From 1989 to 1991, Mitchell appeared on the hit CBS prime time soap opera Dallas, as James Beaumont, the illegitimate first-born son of J. R. Ewing and his long-ago girlfriend Vanessa Beaumont. He made guest appearances on other series, including Rags to Riches.

He had the title role in the 1988 film Spike of Bensonhurst and in 1994's Class of 1999 II: The Substitute. He starred in Kickboxer 2: The Road Back and the third and fourth installments of the film series. He also appeared in a 3 Musketeers commercial in 1989.

His best-known role came on the ABC sitcom Step by Step, where he played Cody Lambert, the nephew of actor Patrick Duffy's character Frank Lambert. Duffy had also played the uncle of Mitchell's character on Dallas. Mitchell's character Cody was based on his personal life experiences.
