Born in Orange County, California, Dampf comes from a theatrical family, as both his mother and 12-year-old sister are actors. Unfortunately, due to his casting in "American Dreams," Dampf jokes that he has decided to forgo his acting career in order to pursue his newest love and become a professional football player, a dream he shares with his character Will.
While waiting for the pros to call, Dampf has made numerous television appearances, including guest roles on "Daddio," "Judging Amy," "Oh Baby" and the daytime drama "Sunset Beach." Most recently Dampf co-starred with one of the actors from his debut role, appearing as Schwarzenegger's son in "Collateral Damage," released earlier this year. He also starred alongside Lisa Kudrow in the feature "Hanging Up." Dampf has appeared in a variety of commercials nation-wide.
When he is not "living" in the 1960s, Dampf enjoys piano, dance, singing and swimming. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his family. His birthday is May 27.
