Andrew Keegan (born January 29, 1979) is an American actor best known for his roles in television shows including Party of Five and 7th Heaven and in films such as 10 Things I Hate about You (1999), The Broken Hearts Club (2000) and O (2001).
Andrew Keegan Heying
January 29, 1979
Keegan was born Andrew Keegan Heying in Los Angeles, California, the older son of Lana (Ocampo), a hairdresser, and Larry Heying, a voice-over actor. Keegan's mother is Colombian and his father is from Nebraska.
In 2014, Keegan founded Full Circle, a community spiritual center based out of Venice Beach, California. Vice characterized the organization as a "new religion", while other outlets called it a cult. In an interview, Keegan described the group as a "non-denominational spiritual community center where people of all beliefs and backgrounds come together to meditate, practice yoga, and engage artistically." New York Magazine reported in March 2015 that "the actual theology of the group is tough to pin down, but it seems to loosely follow Hinduism—or at least Russell Brand's Sanskrit-tattoo version of it." In May 2015, the Full Circle temple was raided by Californian Alcohol Beverage Control officers. The raid was apparently related to Full Circle's distribution of kombucha, a fermented beverage made from sweet black tea. A spokesperson for the temple stated that they were unaware that they needed a license to distribute kombucha. The organization closed its doors in June 2017.[failed verification]
He was first recognized for his performance of teen rebel Zack Dell in the film Camp Nowhere (1994). Keegan was cast in a minor role in the 1996 film Independence Day. He also played a love interest for Stephanie Tanner in the television series Full House for an episode. He had guest parts on numerous television shows before being cast on the TV drama Party of Five (1994). That same year, he landed another recurring role on 7th Heaven (1996), where he played a single teenaged father in love with Jessica Biel's character Mary. Keegan was then cast in two modern-day Shakespearean film adaptations: as the antagonist of Heath Ledger in the 1999 comedy 10 Things I Hate About You (adapted from The Taming of the Shrew) and as Mekhi Phifer's best friend in 2001's O, adapted from Othello.
Keegan then took a role in Greg Berlanti's The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy (2000), which won Best Picture that year at the GLAAD Awards. In 2009, Keegan made his theatrical stage debut in the play He Asked For It, playing Rigby, a character tackling the emotional issues of being HIV-positive in modern-day society. In 2010, Keegan played Strayger, a drug-smuggling pilot in the 2010 action film Kill Speed. Keegan took on a role as a sadistic and sociopathic vampire named Blake in the film Living Among Us (2015).
