Aedin Mincks is the youngest of 3 children, born in Georgia, with a brief move to Illinois before being planted in California in 2004. Aedin decided to begin pursuing an acting career at the age of 6 after seeing his older brother, Austin, interview with various agencies in Los Angeles.
Aedin booked his first commercial campaign for Capital One-playing the notable Garth Jr. in the Visigoth spots. Aedin quickly built his resume with roles on Desperate Housewives, ER, and The Middle.
His break into feature films came in 2010, when he was cast as Billy Bob Thornton's son in Faster, alongside Dwayne Johnson and followed by being cast as Young Alan (Young Zach Galifianakis) in the summer 2010 record-breaking, The Hangover Part II, starring Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms.
Aedin will soon be back on the big screen in Universal Pictures' Ted directed by Seth MacFarlane starring Mila Kunis, Mark Wahlberg and Giovanni Ribisi.
Mr. Mincks is currently playing Angus Chestnut on the Disney Channel Original Series, A.N.T. Farm. Aedin's character is a computer genius who often runs illegal programs on his computer disguised as video games. He has a huge, but unrequited, crush on Olive. Because of the extensive time he spends on his computer, he is quite lazy and often complains about doing basic physical tasks, such as walking in between classes. Because of this, all classes that he's chosen are on the ground floor of the school so he never has to use the stairs.
Aedin enjoys giving back and does so by helping charities such as: CHOC, Habitat for Humanity, American Cancer Society and The Red Cross. He also personally sponsors a boy his same age in Rwanda through World Vision.
