Kevin D. Benton is a Film and T.V. Actor who was born in Philadelphia, Pa. He is the middle of three children of Patricia and David Benton Sr. from Philadelphia. 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 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 short film, "Disaster! A Major Motion Picture Ride ... Starring You," at Universal Hollywood Studios and was featured in the role as the Sea Captain in "The Backlot Tour" (Nautica Battle Scene) at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Kevin played his first notable role as the Casino Security Guard in the multi-short film festival winner, 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 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 quest of constantly learning, growing and developing as an actor and to pursue Film, T.V. and screen opportunities in earnest.
