Veteran Actor and Acting Coach, Kelley Hinman shares his expertise

March 19, 2015

Kelley grew up in Columbus, Mississippi, where his father managed the local television station until his sudden death when Kelley was nine years old. Kelley attended public schools and was encouraged by his teacher to play Demetrius in A Midsummer Night's Dream at the local women's college where he was recognized with a Best Actor award. A National Merit Scholar, Kelley received a scholarship from Rhodes College in Memphis, TN, where he graduated with a degree in psychology and was accepted to law school while working as a counselor in the criminal courts. An opportunity to work at the Crystal Palace in Aspen, CO as a singing waiter changed his direction and he never went back to law. After a year of performing and skiing, Kelley was accepted at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in NYC where he studied with Sanford Meisner. After graduating from the Playhouse, he remained in NYC where he worked in Off and Off-Off Broadway theaters, toured, and appeared in one of the original Levi's 501 commercials. While studying with the legendary teacher Bobby Lewis, Kelley met his future wife and later moved to Los Angeles. He was a member of the acclaimed Actors Co-op in Hollywood appearing in numerous productions and received a Dramalogue for his performance as Dr.Wilson in Terra Nova. Although he moved his family to Asheville, NC in 2007, he continues to work in theater, film, and television. He is a proud member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA.
