Keith Ian Carradine was born on August 8th of 1949 in San Mateo, California. Raised by actress Sonia Sorel and actor John Carradine, Keith was introduced to the entertainment world at a very young age. He was also raised alongside two brothers, Christopher and Robert Carradine, who became actors as well. Despite being surrounded by the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, Carradine admitted that his childhood was negative in many ways. His father struggled with alcoholism while his mother struggled with mental health issues. The couple eventually broke up in 1957, leading to a fierce custody battle. After spending time in a home for abused children, Keith and his brothers were eventually raised by his maternal grandmother in San Mateo.
During his school years, Keith started exercising his acting abilities for the first time with various appearances in stage productions. After graduating high school, Carradine flirted with the idea of becoming a forest range but quickly veered towards drama after enrolling at Colorado State University. He lasted one semester before dropping out and moving to California.
