Micheal Robinson Jr. was born in Washington D.C on April 24, 1993. After participating in his elementary school production of A Christmas in Bethlehem, his parents knew that they had a true performer. Since that day even at a young age Micheal knew that he wanted to show the world what he was capable of and what he could bring to the acting world. Memorizing scenes from different shows and movies helped him realize that he wanted to be in front of the camera.
After transferring high schools Micheal joined the drama club and started helping out and performing in different stage productions such as Annie, Hairspray, and The Lion King. After graduating he came across a small conservatory called The National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts in Georgetown, Washington D.C. where he studied the basics of acting and played the roles of John Proctor in The Crucible and Algernon Moncrieff in The Importance of Being Earnest. A year later he took on the role of James Early in a production of Dream Girls and was able to showcase and small performance of a selected scene for a Hair show.
A couple of months later Micheal moved to California and started taking acting classes taught by Joan McMurtey (How to Get Away with Murder), Caroline Aaron (Edward Scissorhands and 21 Jump Street), Kathleen Wilhoite (Pepper Ann), and Julie Janney (Scream 3). So far he has worked on How to Get Away with Murder, Feature Film 1989, has been featured on two shows for AwesomenessTV, and was cast in a pilot still being pitched to networks called Living it Up.
Micheal also excelled in sports playing basketball, football, running track, and even taking taekwondo classes making it all the way to his red belt. He feels that having these special skills will help him stand out from others and help him earn that Oscar that he’s always dreamed of.
