Garrett Clayton is an American actor, singer, and dancer. He is known for his role in the Teen Beach Movie films.
He has said, “I eat Middle Eastern food all the time. I’m Lebanese.”
Garrett is married to Blake Knight.
Garrett’s paternal grandfather was named Luther Gary Clayton (the son of Luther Clayton). Garrett’s great-grandfather Luther was the son of James Edward Clayton and Dora C. Bennett.
Garrett’s paternal grandmother was Sally Ann Arrage (the daughter of Charles Arrage and Genevieve Theresa Serhan). Sally was born in Michigan, and was of Lebanese descent. Genevieve was the daughter of Charles Serhan and Sophie Azoon.
Garrett’s maternal grandfather was Dennis Michael Thrasher (the son of Marwin “Abe” Thrasher and Eleanor J. Deneau). Dennis was born in Amherstburg, Essex, Ontario, Canada. Marwin was the son of Charles Devere Thrasher, who had English and Scottish ancestry, and of Irene Agnes Richard, who was of French-Canadian descent. Eleanor was French-Canadian, and was the daughter of Loftus Deneau and Pearl Margaret Mayville.

The Richard mentioned in Sally’s obituary is his step-grandfather Richard Barnhill. I’m not 100% sure Luther Clayton Jr. is his grandfather, but I’m 99% sure Luther Clayton Sr. is his great-grandfather.
According to a family tree by Sally Arrage’s sister, Sally’s husband was Luther G. Clayton.
Birth Name: Gary Michael Clayton
I think he is the son of Ellyn Michelle (Thrasher) Brooks and Gary Michael Clayton.
It would mean that his maternal grandparents were Dennis Michael Thrasher (the son of Marwin “Abe” Thrasher and Eleanor J. Deneau) and Carol. Eleanor was the daughter of Loftus Deneau and Pearl.
That’s his grandfather.
I don’t know about his birth name and biological father.
Carol is his step-grandmother.
That’s at least the name he’s been officially known as from what I’ve found. And I don’t know who Gary Michael Clayton Sr. could be if not Garrett’s father. But anyway, now it looks like it’s correct after bablah’s findings.
Yes, that is his name, and Gary is his father. I suspect that his paternal grandfather is Luther Gary Clayton, and his great-grandfather Luther Clayton.
Gary’s mother was Sally Ann Arrage. Her parents Charles Arrage and Genevieve Serhan are Lebanese. Genevieve is daughter of Charles Serhan and Sophie Azoon.
Interesting that people say he looks like Zac Efron, and now I see that there’s a cross-ethnic similarity, too.
he kinda looks like Welsh rugby star Leigh Halfpenny in some features, this pic for example: https://m.media-amazon.com/images/M/[email protected]@._V1_UX214_CR0,0,214,317_AL_.jpg
I think that what you said is a stretch, Ashkenazi Jews don’t look like Lebanese people to me.
