Early life and education

Keahu was raised an only child in several locations in the US, as the family moved a couple of times because his father worked for the US Army – his mother was a housewife who occasionally gave piano lessons. Keahu became interested in acting while attending elementary school, and there started appearing in school plays and musicals before being invited into his first commercials. He became sporting upon enrolling at a high school, as he ran track for the school’s team.

After he matriculated in 2004, Keahu enrolled at Boston University from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in international relations in 2007 – as he is very interested in learning languages, he learned how to speak and write German at university, and is today also competent in Mandarin Chinese.

Career as an actor

Keahu made his debut TV series appearance in 2011, when he guest starred in the episode “And Circumstance” of the family comedy series “The Secret Life of the American Teenager”, and in the following year, he appeared as Cal Litoa in the episode “Ha’alele”, of the action crime series “Hawaii Five-0”.

He produced his one and only short action comedy film “Duel Club” in 2015, written and directed by Eric Jordan Baker, and starred in the film alongside Charlie Bewley, which is about two best friends who decide to duel to the death as to find meaning in their empty lives.

In 2017, he was invited to play the supporting character Creepy Guy in the comedy movie “The Concessionaires Must Die!”, which starred David Blue, Talia Tabin and John M.

Love life and relationships. Is he gay?

Keahu hasn’t talked about his love life and the girls he might have dated, but there are rumors circulating the internet that he is gay, mostly because he portrayed the gay teenager in the series “Teen Wolf” so convincingly that made many of his fans believe that he’is gay in real life.

After being praised for his performance in the series, he was invited to portray another gay character in the series “The Originals”, which again helped spread rumors regarding Keahu’s sexuality – some of his fans have even stated to have seen Keahu being rather too close to a man at a club, but he hasn’t commented, and no proof has been provided to support the claims.

As of August 2020, Keahu is single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.

He is a huge fan of travelling, and has been around the US but prefers to travel around Europe, and has visited London in England which is his dream travel destination, Paris in France and Venice in Italy. He likes to spend his vacations at attractive natural locations, such as national parks, forests and lakes, rather than to visit famous overcrowded touristic destinations.
