At nineteen years of age, KEVIN ZEGERS (Terry) is fast turning into an entertainment industry veteran. He was only seven-years-old when he landed his first acting job, playing the younger version of Michael J. Fox’s character in Life With Mikey. Since then, Kevin has worked continuously, appearing in over 20 films and numerous television movies and series.

In addition to Dawn of the Dead, Zegers has also completed production on an indie film entitled Hollow, based on The Legend of Sleepy Hollow tale, with Zegers assuming the role of a descendant of Ichabod Crane. He most recently appeared in the Showtime feature The Incredible Mrs. Ritchie, starring opposite Hollywood legends Gena Rowlands and James Caan.

Many of Zegers’ previous film performances can now be enjoyed on home video/DVD, including the Air Bud franchise, which first introduced him to adoring audiences worldwide.

He has also had guest-starring roles in the The X Files, So Weird, Twice in a Lifetime and Goosebumps.

Kevin splits his time between Los Angeles and his hometown, a small burgh outside of Toronto. An avid sports enthusiast, Kevin enjoys golfing, seadooing and hockey. He spends his spare time working out at the gym and golfing with either his dad or friends.
