Ty Simpkins currently stars as the young boy who gives a helping hand – and a hard time – to Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark in Iron Man 3, but there is much more to the New York City native, who has been acting since he was 3 months old.
Simpkins, 11, has already starred on two different daytime soaps (One Life to Live and Guiding Light), worked with Oscar winner Kate Winslet on three movies (All the Kings Men, Little Children and Revolutionary Road) and become the face of a new horror franchise (Insidious and Insidious: Chapter 2, expected later this year).
