Early life and career beginnings
Growing up in Bedford, Cayden expressed a desire to pursue acting as a career at an early age. He was supported by his parents who started helping him find work starting with several commercials at the age of six. He finally landed his first acting role in 2001, guest starring in an episode of “Scrubs”, followed by work in “The King of Queens” and “Tania”.
In 2003, he gained some attention when he played the son of Tim Robbins character in ‘Mystic River’, an Academy Award winning movie starring Sean Penn and based on Dennis Lehane’s novel of the same name.

In 2005 Boyd was cast in one of his most notable roles as he was the star of the movie “The adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl‘, which also featured a young Taylor Lautner and Taylor Dooley.
The film was inspired by “Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over”, using anaglyph 3D technology to render the computer graphics sequences in the film. The film’s plot is mainly drawn from stories about director Robert Rodriguez’s children. Despite all the hype and attention it received, it received mostly negative reviews and made just enough to cover its budget – critics mainly focused on the film’s poor 3D quality and lackluster story.
However, this did not stop him, as more projects came his way.

In the same year, he played a three-episode role in the series “Awkward”, which aired on MTV. It tells the story of a teenager who struggles with her identity in high school after rumors spread that she was suicidal.
Recent projects and education
In 2017 Boyd was a guest on the show “The Mick” and the following year landed a recurring role on “heather”, aired on the Paramount Network, and is based on the 1980s movie of the same name.
