Mackenzie Lyn Rosman was born in Charleston, South Carolina, in the United States. Born on the 28th of December in 1989, she grew up in Charleston before moving at age 2 in mid-year 1992 with her mother, Donna, (step-father at the time), Randy, brother, Chandler and (step-sister at the time), Katelyn to north Los Angeles in Southern California. Eventually, encouraged by a friend, Mack’s mother Donna signed Mack up with a talent agency (during the spring of 1996, just in time for auditions of Aaron Spelling’s new WB family drama, 7th Heaven) and Mack began to do commercial work for Tuft’s Health Care in Boston including a Diaper commercial, a Hormel Chilli Hotdog commercial and a Nike shoe commercial too. Mack’s middle name is Lyn, and shares the same middle name with her mother Donna. Mack also has a relative named Lyn. Although it is no longer in production, 7th Heaven went on-air for 11yrs with 11 seasons and became the longest running family drama on television, making history. Mackenzie spent her remaining years on 7th Heaven studying by correspondance with a on-set tutor at various schools in LA, including schools in Northridge, Ojai and Lancastar, Los Angeles. Mack graduated high school in late May 2007 from Valencia High School. Now Mackenzie lives in Los Angeles in her own place. Very sadly, Katelyn Salmont passed away on the 25th December 2008 due to complications with Pneumonia. RIP Katelyn, you are dearly missed by all who knew you. Mack is now currently 22yrs old, and is continuing her work in film roles. Mack is also actively involved in charities such as; the Childhelp organization, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and CureFinders, where Mack is actually the chairman spokesperson. Through CureFinders; which aids research and awareness of the Cystic Fibrosis disease, Mack managed to guide multiple school’s across the US to fundraise staggering amounts of money to support the cause. The highest sum raised went to the winning school, who then received a personal visit from Mack where she delivered speeches, presentations & awards.
Mack began her acting career at the tender age of 4yrs old, completing multiple tv commercials for Nike, Hormel Chilli Hotdogs and Tuft’s Diapers. However, her bigger break in her career began when the staff and crew were delighted by the way Mack introduced herself when she auditioned for Aaron Spelling’s new show, 7th Heaven. At the age of 6yrs old in early 1996, she walked around the room before her audition, shaking each ones hand and introducing herself, the crew were very impressed by her.
