The Leading Man
A veteran of the stage since the age of 5, Kerwin was smitten by the acting bug when he received his first kiss while playing the title character in The Gingerbread Man in kindergarten. During his youth, this well-rounded performer sung with the Atlanta Boy Choir in 8 countries and for many dignitaries, including Georgia Governor Joe Frank Harris and Oscar-winning actress Sophia Loren. He went on to perform in numerous plays and musicals, including Chris Cross: A Musical Journey, executive produced by Xavier Roberts.
Kerwin is a student of the Alliance (theater & film classes) and was taught the Hendricks Method of Acting by the incomparable Freddie Hendricks himself. Under Hendricks’ direction, Kerwin was featured in the following Youth Ensemble of Atlanta’s (YEA) original productions: Rhymes and Reasons, Times, and Soweto! Soweto! Soweto!...A Township is Calling!. Early in his YEA tenure, he discovered that his acting talent can be used for a calling greater than just to entertain; he found that through acting, you can touch the souls of audience members, provide them enlightenment, and positively impact their lives.
