Biography

Born and raised in Compton, California, Anderson is the son of a career film extra and her entrepreneur husband. As a toddler, he accompanied his mother to several film sets, and by the time he was four years old, he knew acting was his destiny. While pursuing his career, Anderson continued his education, attending the High School for the Performing Arts, where he earned first place in the NAACP's ACTSO Awards with his performance of the classic monologue from "The Great White Hope." That performance and his dedication and talent, earned him an arts scholarship to Howard University. After college, Anderson was eager to return to Los Angeles to pursue acting.
