    OLD THREAD


    Biography

    BENJAMIN McKENZIE (Ryan Atwood on THE O.C.)

    Hard to believe this is Benjamin McKenzie's first starring role!

    As Ryan Atwood, the neglected, filled with angst kid from Chino escaping a violent stepfather and a drunken mother, he is adopted by the Cohen's and moves into an affluent neighborhood in the O.C. Instantly befriended by Seth Cohen, his adopted brother, he suffers through adjusting to this new “rich” life and dealing with the “rich kids”. An on-again off-again relationship with Marissa brings out his tendency to settle any problems with his fists.

    Ben on the other hand was born and raised in Texas, attended Austin High and graduated from the University of Virginia (like his father and grandfather before him) where he majored in Foreign Affairs and Economics. The oldest of three sons to poet-writer, Frances and attorney Pete Schenkkan, Ben moved to New York City after graduation and three weeks before 9/11 to pursue his passion for acting. He appeared off-Broadway in "Life is a Dream" at the Soho Rep. He also appeared in numerous productions at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, including "Street Scene" and "The Blue Bird," and at the University of Virginia, in "Measure for Measure" and "Zoo Story".
    He eventually moved to L.A. where he bunked down on a friend's sofa and got a couple of bit parts in JAG and The District before landing the role of Ryan Atwood in the O.C. almost exactly one year after moving to L.A.
