His elder brother is Shiloh Strong, an actor and still photographer.
It was not until he was chosen for the role of Shawn Hunter in the ABCseries Boy Meets World that he received widespread recognition.
During the seven-year run he was nominated twice for the Young Artist Award and nominated for a Hollywood Reporter Young Star Award.
When the series ended, Strong returned to the big screen to star as Paul in the indie horror film Cabin Fever, directed by Eli Roth.
That same year, Strong recorded a reading for the audio version of the Anthony Kiedis biography, Scar Tissue.
