Mini Bio (1)

Kendre Berry was born in Flint, Michigan, March 14, 1991 to Ken and Telishia Berry. Kendre inherited his love for performing from his mom who was a theater actress, and his dad also did some acting and stand-up comedy.

At age two, Kendre began playing drums. At age three, he was crowned "Cover Boy USA" in the America's Cover Miss/Cover Boy Pageant. He also won the top prize for "Overall Winner."

When Kendre was seven years old, his mother heard the Oprah Winfrey Show announce that they were having a search for kids for an episode with Bill Cosby promoting his "Little Bill" books. She sent in a video of him performing a Jell-o pudding act with his puppet, Jamal. His video was selected and aired on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

Kendre continued acting in church, school plays, and the local Flint Youth Theater, and in Gospel Musical plays his parents produced. He was excited when he asked his mother if he could send in a video for Nickelodeon's search for the funniest kid in America. His parents thought the idea wasn't too far fetched since he had been selected by video in the Oprah Winfrey contest.

Out of 10,000 contestants, Kendre made it to be one the top five finalists to appear with the cast of All That on Nickelodeon's one hour special, "R U All That". After the contest, he performed as a guest on the show "All That".

After seeing how passionate Kendre was about becoming an actor, his parents thought a try at Hollywood might prove to be rewarding. After giving the idea much thought and some strong prayers, his parents decided to pack up their four kids and Bailey, their dog and move to California. After only a few weeks, Kendre' landed the role of Backpack Boy on Nickelodeon's "Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide". Soon after he filmed his first movie, "Searching for David's Heart," and landed guest appearances on "Cold Case" (CBS), "One on One" (UPN), "ER" (NBC), and "Eyes" (ABC). Kendre currently plays Durrell Young on the HBO, Emmy Award winning drama "Six Feet Under". It airs Sunday nights at 9 pm.
