Landon WoodsonActor

My mother’s favorite actor was the late Michael Landon. Her favorite shows were Bonanza, Highway to Heaven, and Little House on the Prairie. One day while she was pregnant with me and watching Michael Landon on TV it popped into her head that she would name me after him so I guess it was destined from the womb that I would go on to pursue a career in Acting.

I am a proud New Jersey native and my passion for acting did not begin until I was a liberal arts major looking for a break from the monotony of lectures at Rutgers University. A couple classes in the Theater Department ignited a flame in my spirit that has yet to dim. I went on to receive my M.F.A. in Acting from the Mason Gross School of the Arts and since then my career has been an exciting adventure with many twists and turns (like a good script!)

Whether it is on stage or in front of a camera storytelling brings me a joy that I love sharing with the world. Art has the ability to change the way we see the world. It reveals who we are but also presents possibilities for what we can be. As an actor I want my artistry to be in service of furthering those possibilities and connections that bring us together as people.
