Personal life

Collins was born in Los Angeles, California. He has a younger sister, and two older brothers, Blake Collins, a professional singer-songwriter, and Nick Collins, who works at a full scale talent agency in Beverly Hills.

Collins became good friends with fellow actor Logan Lerman, while playing his character's best friend in Jack & Bobby, and they remained close after the series' cancellation. They worked together again on Hoot, where Collins had a supporting role. In their spare time, the two collaborated on creating short comedic films, which they uploaded to YouTube under their joint account name of "monkeynuts1069".

Collins and Lerman also formed a band called Indigo, along with musician Daniel Pashman. Collins sang lead vocals, Lerman played keyboard and guitar, and Pashman played drums.
