Santa Monica, California, U.S.
|Occupation||Actor, musician, producer, director|
|Parent(s)||Cyndi Garcia Posey|
Posey was born in Santa Monica, California, to actor/writer John Posey and Cyndi Terese Garcia. He grew up in Santa Clarita, California. His on-screen mother in Teen Wolf, actress Melissa Ponzio, said: "I had the pleasure to meet his mom and dad, and he is the perfect mix of the two." Posey has two brothers, Derek and Jesse.
Posey has worked steadily in film and television. In February 2002, he appeared in the film Collateral Damage; in December of that year, he played Jennifer Lopez's son in the romantic comedy Maid in Manhattan. He auditioned for the role of Jacob Black in the Twilight film series in 2007 but lost the role to his friend Taylor Lautner. The two regularly went for the same roles as child actors.
That same year, Posey voiced a character in the pilot of the Disney original cartoon SheZow, which aired on May 4 as a part of the Shorty McShorts' Shorts miniseries. In 2012, he co-starred with Twilight actor Booboo Stewart in the film White Frog. In 2011, Posey was cast in his breakout role as the lead in the MTV television series Teen Wolf, which is based on the 1985 film. Posey plays high school student Scott McCall, who is bitten by a werewolf and must keep this fact secret while protecting his loved ones from a host of supernatural threats and beings. In 2015, he also became a co-producer for the fifth season of Teen Wolf.
In December 2016, Tyler Posey was a guest DJ at Emo Nite LA's second anniversary at the Echoplex in Los Angeles. 
Posey plays guitar and contributes vocals in the pop punk band PVMNTS along with guitarist/bassist/vocalist Freddy Ramirez and drummer Nick Guzman. The trio released the song "Standing (On My Own Two Feet)" on June 14, 2018, on which Posey wrote about the passing of his mother in 2014. The band self-released their six track EP Better Days on August 17, 2018.
