Tyler Garcia Posey (October 18, 1991) is an American actor, best known for his starring role on the MTV television series Teen Wolf (2011–2017).
Posey was born on October 18, 1991, in Santa Monica, California, son of actor/writer John Posey and the late Cyndi Terese Garcia. He has two brothers.
His mother, of Mexican descent, died of breast cancer in December 2014. Season 5 of Teen Wolf was dedicated to her memory.
Posey grew up in Santa Clarita, California. His on-screen mother, 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 worked steadily in film and television. He made his debut with a minor uncredited role in George Tillman Jr.'s biographical drama about Carl Brashear, Men of Honor. 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 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.
On September 25, 2017, it was announced that Posey would join the third season of the VH1 slasher television series Scream, starring in the role of Shane. The season premiered on July 8, 2019.
On February 20, 2019, it was announced that Posey would star as Michael Emerson in The CW's television reboot series of The Lost Boys. On July 29, 2019, it was announced The CW was unhappy with the pilot and that Posey, along with most of the rest of the cast, would be recast.
On November 18, 2019, it was announced that Posey would star in Netflix's animated Fast & Furious television series Fast & Furious: Spy Racers, which premiered on December 26, 2019. He was seen in the role of "Tony Toretto" in 9 episodes of the series alongside Charlet Takahashi Chung and Jorge Diaz.
Most recently, in 2020, Posey was seen as "Aidan" in Johnny Martin's horror thriller Alone opposite Summer Spiro. His other current projects are: Brut Force and Oshie—the release dates are yet to be announced.
Posey also fronts and plays guitar in the band Disappearing Jamie, formerly known as Lost in Kostko. Their first performance was at The Roxy in Los Angeles in 2012. Lost in Kostko released their eight-track EP You're Going to Need a Towel in 2011. Posey announced the band's breakup via Instagram on July 17, 2013.
In December 2016, Posey was a guest DJ at Emo Nite LA's second anniversary at the Echoplex in Los Angeles.
Posey played guitar and contributed 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. In April 2019, it was announced that Posey had left the band and was pursuing another music venture, which became the band Five North.
Five North is a pop-punk rock band formed by childhood best friends Posey and Kyle Murphy. Posey and Murphy originate from just off "The 5" (Interstate 5 in California) in Santa Clarita, California, hence the origin of the band's name Five North. The two recruited Makeout drummer Scott Eckel after being introduced by music producer and close friend John Feldmann. Five North's debut single "This Mess" was released on October 4, 2019, and their debut eight-track EP Scumbag was released on March 6, 2020, via Big Noise Music Group.
Posey was in a two-year relationship with Miley Cyrus when he was nine years old. He was engaged to his longtime girlfriend Seana Gorlick, whom he began dating when he was 12, but they called off their engagement in October 2014. Posey dated Bella Thorne for several months, between August 2016 and December 2016.
In October 2020, Posey revealed that he has been with men previously and identifies himself as pansexual.
