American Film and Television Actor/Filmmaker Reginald T. Dorsey was born and raised in Dallas, Texas until he was 10 years old. His family then moved to San Jose, California where he was an outstanding student and High School athlete, excelling in football and track. The quest for him to act proved to be more powerful though than his athletic dreams. After attending an open call with his mother back in Dallas for extra work in the film "Book Of Numbers," Filmmaker Raymond St. Jacques spotted the young 13 year old and wrote a lead part in the film for him.
The rest is history as they say, and at 16 years old he left home for Hollywood to pursue his calling as an actor and filmmaker. Now a veteran in the film and television business, his respect and passion for his craft is even greater after many years of sacrifice and dedication.
A true "Texas Cowboy" his whole life, Reginald 's other passions are raising horses, competing in rodeos, most notably The Bill Pickett Invitational and others where he has won Championships in Team Roping and Team Penning.
His work with children and touching people’s lives in a meaningful way continues to be a source of inspiration for him as an artist and as a man, giving all the glory to God for his many blessings.
