"Acting is the art of being human."
Richard Kent Green -- "RKG", as colleagues know him -- has worked in film, television, commercials, and theatre for decades, playing the squirrely guy who "gets it" (or thinks he does) because he's freakishly smart or he blindly follows his heart; and one usually gets in the way of the other: offbeat geniuses (Einstein, Salvador Dali) and hopeless cases you find yourself rooting for.
Richard grew up in Indiana, Virginia, Tennessee, and Fire Island, NY, the third son of a former protestant minister and an OG Jersey Girl.
His life as an artist began on his third birthday, when he announced that he'd be a clown when he grew up. He first trod the boards in community theater at the age of ten. Acting and singing carried him through high school and college, when his best friend gave him his first ukulele. He worked on the road -- acting, singing & moving well -- until he came to New York, where he soon immersed himself in indie theater, first as a member of Love Creek Productions, then as company artist, director, and producer with the WorkShop Theater Company, with occasional work in TV, film and commercials.
Now, his focus is on TV, film & commercial work. He studies on-camera acting with Anthony Robert Grasso at ARG Studios. and is a member of career coach Jodie Bentley's The Actors Think Tank.
Richard is represented by Pat Yorks, at Agency Connects (see Contacts).
ALSO: Richard co-hosts a New York circle of shamanic practitioners (and runs its camp at Burning Man, where he's known as "Einstein"); he's an original member of the Consent Support team at House of Yes in Brooklyn; he plays banjolele in the novelty band Unintended Consequences; and he lives in Hell's Kitchen.
