Austin Peck portrays "Austin Reed", a boxer turned marketing executive on NBC's number one daytime drama, "Days of Our Lives". Peck assumed the role of Austin Reed in April of 1995 and along with co-star Christie Clark (Carrie Brady Reed) took the "Hottest Romance" honor at the Thirteenth Annual Soap Opera Awards. Peck receives enormous international recognition for his role on "Days" and is in high demand for national and international public appearances. In fact, while on a public appearance in South Africa, the Cape Town airport had to temporarily shut down as over 3000 people rushed in to get a glimpse of his arrival.
Peck has been featured on national talk shows such as The Howie Mandel Show, The Donnie and Marie Show and the Later Today Show. He's also been featured many times on entertainment news shows such as Access Hollywood, Extra, PAX-TV, Entertainment Tonight, and E! Entertainment.
Born in Hawaii on April 9, 1971, Austin was raised in Los Angeles, California. At the age of sixteen, Peck made his national television debut in a Kellogg's Pop Tarts commercial after he was spotted in Westwood Village, California, by a Los Angeles talent agent. Shortly thereafter, Peck found himself signing with Nina Blachard and traveling to New York, Paris, Milan, Rome, Morocco and the Virgin Islands as a working model while making the pages of GQ, Vogue Hommes, Luomo Vogue, British Vogue and Esquire.
Interests for Peck outside of the acting arena lie in several areas. At 6' 2" tall and 200 pounds, he considers himself an extremely physical person and in excellent shape. Peck trains five days a week with professional boxing coach, Terry Claybon and he has gone from boxing novice to a non-professional caliber boxer. Peck is also an accomplished and self-taught sketch artist and would seriously consider a career as a comic book illustrator if he were not a working actor.
