Damian Thompson



Born in Kingston, Jamaica and raised in Miami, FL, Damian was a performer before he knew it. From a very early age he was his family's private entertainer, always dancing at family functions and reciting TV shows. He started his arts training at Miami Norland Middle's magnet theater program, and later went on to earn his MFA in theater at the University of Delaware's Professional Theatre Training Program (Also attending Miami Northwestern's Senior High School's Performing and Visual Arts Theatre Program, and the University of Evansville's BFA Acting Program.) Favorite roles included Oshoosi Size in The Brothers Size (for which he won a Drammy award for Best Actor), Prince of Morocco in The Merchant of Venice, and Gently Ai in the world premiere stage adaptation of Ursula K. LeGuin's The Left Hand Of Darkness.
Damian lives by these two phrases: Life doesn't hold tryouts. Hard work and preparation is key!
