Ben used to race Club cars for a hobby.
Ben is the stepson of actor Drake Hogestyn.
Ben Hogestyn has appeared on "American Dreams," "The Division" and on the Nickelodeon series, "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide." He's also been an extra on Days of our Lives.
Ben: (on acting) It's a really tough life decision because it goes up and down. Show business can be as hard as it is rewarding.
Ben: (asked if growing up around actors gave him the acting bug) I did spend a fair amount of time on the set of Days Of Our Lives. I even did the Christmas show for several years. It probable spurred my acting on a bit, but the overall motivation, I think you're born with it. I think it's a passion that won't go away. And I am sure it helped seeing what my dad was doing ervery day on Days.
Ben: (asked if his father gave him acting advice) He definitely has. If I'm wondering about a certain acting choice or direction, he's willing to give me a heads-up on it, whether I'm working on Daytime or any other project. Now though, it seems like we have more in common.
