Who is Deacon Phillippe?

Deacon is the son of actress Reese Witherspoon, who starred in hit films including Legally Blonde and Walk The Line and actor Ryan Phillippe, who appeared in blockbusters including I Know What You Did Last Summer and Cruel Intentions.

The 17-year-old is also a music producer, where he has released two tracks, “Long Run” and “Love For the Summer”, which featured Loren Gray.

“It’s always a good feeling when you’re getting recognition for stuff that you do, especially on a creative level,” Deacon told Billboard at the time.

In another interview with Interview Magazine Deacon said that despite coming from celeb royalty, he prefers to remain behind the scenes.

“I realised there’s more to making music than just being a vocalist, and that a lot of times it’s the production that makes me feel something,” he told the publication.

So, while we can’t expect Deacon to sing on his next track, the talented producer will keep releasing music.
