Mini Bio (1)

Kevin D. Benton is an American, Multi Award-Winning, "Best Film Actor" and T.V. Actor who was born in Philadelphia, Pa. He is the middle of three children of Patricia and David Benton Sr. also from Philadelphia, Pa. Kevin caught the acting bug early while appearing in student stage plays in grade school, in which he really enjoyed. As an adult, Kevin got his passion for acting renewed while spending some time with his family in Florida during the summers. During this time, Kevin made his way down to Orlando, Florida where he was frequently cast as a featured extra (Jack's Dying Scene) and as an extra in the Cairo Street Scene in the "Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular." Kevin was regularly cast as an Evil Lab Worker in "Disaster! A Major Motion Picture Ride ... Starring You," a dark ride attraction at Universal Studios Florida. The ride, set on a soundstage of a fictitious movie company, Disaster! was based on the park's former Earthquake: The Big One ride, which comically illustrates how special effects are filmed for use in movies. Kevin was also cast in a featured role as the Sea Captain in "The Backlot Tour" (Nautica Battle Scene) at Disney's Hollywood Studios as well. Kevin played his first notable role as the Casino Security Guard in the Multi Award-Winning Short Film, "Misfits" (2015). Kevin's first paid acting role was when he was cast as a ring side Fight Fan in the MGM featured film, "CREED" (2015), starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone. "CREED" was produced by Sylvester Stallone and written and directed by Ryan Croogler, who also wrote and directed "Fruitvale Station." The film was regarded as a "Rocky" spin-off movie where Rocky Balboa, played by Sylvester Stallone, is now training and mentoring his late friend Apollo Creed's son, Adonis Creed, played by franchise newcomer, Michael B. Jordan. This experience reignited Kevin's passion for acting from a professional standpoint and he immediately enrolled in acting classes and continues to take classes in order to hone his craft. Afterwards, Kevin purposed to accept the life long journey of constantly learning, growing and developing as an Actor and to pursue Film, T.V. and screen opportunities in earnest. He is most known for his roles in "Jason's Letter" which premiered on the STARZ Network, in the TV Series, True Crime Epic Mysteries, House of Cards, many feature films, many short films and the list goes on. Among other acting awards, Kevin won the (2018) "SPIRAL Film & Music Awards" "Best Film Actor" award for his role as Bobby Mason in "Emergency Landing" which won Film of the Year at the Rodney L. Cherry Productions "Blossom Awards." "Emergency Landing" can be seen on Amazon Prime, Xfinity X1 on Demand on Comcast. In all of his accomplishments, with more on the way, Kevin continues to focus on the honor and privilege it is to serve the art of acting well and use his gifts, talents and abilities to help other people, especial kids, while doing so.
