I don’t think I can compare myself to Macaulay Culkin because we’re two different types of actors. He did a lot of comedies… and I did a lot of different things, like sad movies, like a movie about a kid with AIDS. Although he avoids being like Macaulay Culkin, Brian Bonsall has some similarities with a former child actor who became a musician, especially since his trip to Hollywood. Bonsall began his career at the age of five as the charming Andy Keaton in Family Ties and has appeared in The Bun Man, Father Hood, Empty Check, Father and Scout and Star Trek: The next generation, before he resigned in 1995. Bonsall, who aspired to a career in music, spent part of the new millennium making headlines for his numerous arrests and drug trafficking charges. Today, on tour with rock band The Ataris, 35-year-old Bonsall seems to have lived his life together and happily left his past behind… Of course, that doesn’t stop us from taking a look at his career over the past three decades!
Brian Eric Bonsall, born in California, was born on the 3rd. Born December 1981 in Torrance, California, where he began his acting career at the age of five with Michael D. Fox, Meredith Baxter, Michael Gross and Justin Bateman in Family Ties. The talent and charm of Bonsal, who was a young Andy Keaton, was unmistakable when he worked on the series for the next three seasons and won three Young Artist Awards for his achievements – all for his 10th birthday. Over the years, Bonsall has become known for his performances in television series such as Day by Day, Booker and On TV, but also for television films such as Go to the Light and Do You Know a Bun Man, the latter of which earned him a Young Artist Award nomination.
In 1989, Bonsal strengthened family ties and worked on a handful of TV-fiction films such as Mother of the Rock and Rim Goose and Angel of Death over the next few years, before moving on to his second leading role, that of Alexander Rozhenko, son of the Klingon Chekist Mr Worf, who appeared in Star Trek: The next generation from 1992 to 1994. As far as I remember, I tried it with many other children because I remember the casting was very full, Bonsall remembers his audition. I saw the show in sufficient numbers, and the stage was just around the corner, on the Family Ties stage… I think the only thing we knew then was that it was repeating itself. At that time I was very busy with other tasks, so I always walked to other workplaces.
Fascinated by another recurring role and working with the talented Michael Dorn, Bonsall appeared in seven episodes of science fiction classics and learned how important it is to enter and stay in the role. As you can imagine, makeup can sometimes be a bit boring, but they were always there to help me figure out how to scratch an itch or fix a wardrobe malfunction, he said about the makeup team and their costumes. It was an extraordinary experience. It certainly helped me to stay in character, as a child at that age. I felt like a warrior. But the $4,000 wig of real hair was probably the biggest pain in the ass because it was so much money and I sometimes walked around like crazy.
Against the backdrop of his stint in Star Trek, Bonsall starred in several films, including Mikey, Father Hood, Empty Check and Father and Scout, before announcing his retirement in 1995 at the age of 14. He was ready to leave Hollywood and move to Boulder, Colorado, where he lived with his mother and stepfather when he went to Boulder School. During his studies he became interested in music and founded his first rock band, Late Bloomer, in 1998. Two years later he graduated high school and went on stage with several Boulder punk bands, after which he returned to Los Angeles to play guitar in This Life of Mine.
Often seen as a charming young man from Family Ties, although he is mature and has many other interests and talents, Bonsall has done his best to break this stereotype in the new millennium and build a reputation as a bad boy rocker with a series of arrests. His first arrest took place in 2007, when he was accused of assaulting his girlfriend and was sentenced to two years’ probation. After his probationary period, he was arrested for assault in the third degree and did not appear in court. He was handcuffed for marijuana possession again for a few months and spent another two years on probation, but as far as we know he’s been living together again ever since, having continued his musical career in bands like Lowjob, Bootjack & Bonz and The Ataris.
As far as the media is concerned, unfortunately I never had the chance to tell my story, Mr. Bonsall said recently. Maybe I should write a book like everyone else… My skirmishes with the D.U.I. have been behind me for about ten years, so I’m really happy. I’m not proud of my past mistakes, but I think you live and learn… Hope.
35-year-old Bonsall, who is currently on tour with rock band The Ataris, says he will always be recognized by Family Ties and Star Trek, but no publicity will get him back in the game. Instead, he is happy with where the music has taken him, especially now that he is making headlines with his music and is no longer making arrests. I’ve learned a lot about myself, that’s for sure. I am deeply in love with my girlfriend, who is very supportive and positive. I love my work and I can’t wait to release new music and go on tour again. I’d say I’m fine.
