Tyler Garcia Posey, son of Cyndi Garcia and actor John Posey, was born in Santa Monica, California, and grew up in Santa Clarita, California. His on-screen mom Melissa Ponzio says: "I've had the pleasure to meet his mom and dad, and he is the perfect mix of the two." Posey has two brothers, Jesse and Derek.
Posey has worked steadily in film and television for more than 10 years. 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 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 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 the soft-spoken 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.
His mother, Cyndi Garcia Posey, died in December 2014 after a long struggle with breast cancer. Season 5 of Teen Wolf is dedicated to her memory.
