Johnathon Schaech (pronounced Shek; born September 10, 1969) is an American actor, writer, and director. Schaech was born in Edgewood, Maryland to Joseph, a Baltimore City law enforcement officer, and Joanne Schaech, a human resources executive. He is of German and Italian descent, and was raised Roman Catholic. Schaech has a sister Renee, who now lives in Cumberland and is director of Western Maryland's agency on aging. Schaech began his acting career doing commercials in Baltimore and he packed up his Toyota truck and moved to Los Angeles in 1989, where he met acting coach Roy London.
