What started as a complete joke in high school, eventually became a career for Austin. Little did he know, auditioning for the school play to be funny would accidentally change his life. Since then, he has worked in many films, commercials, television, and professionally on stage with some of the industry’s biggest names including Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Jon Bernthal, Kevin Costner, Josh Hartnett, and Wes Bentley to name a few; and directors Rob Reiner (Academy-Award Nominee), and he’s worked twice now with Taylor Sheridan (Academy-Award Nominee) Austin R. Grant was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah to Jami and Kevin Grant. Austin worked for his dad’s carpet cleaning company out of high school to pay for college in between acting gigs. Eventually, Austin landed in the Actor Training Program at the University of Utah on a scholarship, but decided to leave the program early for film work. Every year since early 2013, he’s been invited to act in the prestigious Sundance Director’s Lab, where he’s worked and collaborated with A-list talent at the Sundance Resort in Utah. Austin loves to spend time outside and with his family. He has three older sisters. Actor Andrew Troy is his brother-in-law.
