Born and raised in Los Angeles, Peck attended private schools Campbell Hall and Harvard-Westlake in Studio City. He excelled in athletics and learned to play classical cello.

Peck is the grandson of actor Gregory Peck and the son of Stephen Peck (a former actor, documentary filmmaker, and Vietnam veteran, who is President and CEO of U.S. Veterans Initiative), and abstract artist Francine Matarazzo. He has a half-sister (from his mother’s second marriage), Marisa Matarazzo, who is a novelist and creative writing professor at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.

After high school, Peck attended the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, enrolling in the Experimental Theater Wing for three years, before leaving to further his acting career.

Peck had many star television appearances as a young actor, including a younger Michael Kelso (played by Ashton Kutcher) in That ’70s Show. In his first film role at age 9, he co-starred in the film Marshall Law as Jimmy Smits’ son. He appeared in the 1999 movie Passport to Paris starring Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, and was Mary-Kate’s first on-screen kiss.

Peck co-starred with Adam Rothenberg and Mariah Carey in the 2008 film Tennessee, followed by a co-starring role opposite Peter Coyote and Bebe Neuwirth in the film Adopt a Sailor. He won the award for “Best Actor” at the 2009 Sonoma International Film Festival for his portrayal of “Sailor”.

From 2009 to 2010, he starred on the television series 10 Things I Hate About You on ABC Family.

In 2015, Ethan Peck became an spokesperson for the fashion brand Salvatore Ferragamo and appeared in a number of print editorials representing the Italian brand. He was also featured in Coming Home to Hollywood, a short film about the brand’s 100th anniversary.
