Rico E. Anderson

Rico Anderson, an award-winning actor and the oldest of eleven children on his mother’s side, and the 3rd of 4 children oh his father’s side, was born in Seaside/Monterey, CA. He was raised on the south side of Chicago, as well as in the San Francisco Bay Area. It was in Chicago where his love for the arts began.

As a little boy, Rico and his 3rd grade class went to a touring performance of The Wiz, starring Stephanie Mills. Even at that early age, Rico sat there mesmerized and amazed at the performances. Memories from that performance stuck in the back of his mind and would not surface until a few years later when he and his family moved to Berkeley, California. The bug bit again and Rico started performing in several Independent films and theatre productions around the Bay Area. Rico also majored in Theatre Arts at San Francisco State University. Eventually Rico moved to Los Angeles and has been blessed to have many film, television, voice over and theatre credits to his name.
