Who Are Steven Smith and Renee Jackson? 

Steven Smith and Renee Jackson are proud parents of the All American: Homecoming actor, Peyton Alex Smith. Renee gave birth to Peyton on 18 June 1994 in San Diego, California, and raised him in Texas with her husband, Steven. 

As he grew up, Peyton's parents sent him to Dr. John D. Horn High School to finish his high school education. After that, he was enrolled at Florida A&M University for his advanced level studies, but Peyton dropped out after the first semester. He was interested in acting, so to improve his acting skills, he enrolled in Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.


Peyton made his debut in the entertainment business in 2006 with a minor part as Jamal in an episode of the television sitcom Barney & Friends. He had to struggle and wait for nearly a decade for his breakthrough role. It was in 2015 when Peyton played Vincent in Carter High, and his career took a major turn. Following that, he received opportunities to portray more significant and regular roles on The Quad, Legacies, and All American: Homecoming as Cedric Hobbs, Rafael Waithe, and Damon Sims, respectively.

Peyton's parents Steven Smith and Renee Jackson must be overjoyed with their son's accomplishments. It must have been a matter of stress for Peyton's parents when he suddenly dropped out from a conventional education course but seeing his success now, and they must be proud of him.

Who is Peyton Alex Smith Dating?

Peyton is secretive about his personal life, given he has not disclosed much information about his parents besides their names. It must be the same with his romantic life. Assumably, the 28-year-old actor is single as of now, but we cannot seal it with full assurance as Peyton is notable for keeping his private life under wraps. 

Many actors have at least one relationship, either past or present, at the age of 28. Provided Peyton has an appealing appearance and personality to garner the interest of many women, he must have had an experience of at least one romantic relationship until now.

Also, because there are still questions lingering around his dating life, speculation about Peyton's marital status can be kept off the table. He is neither engaged nor married.
