Hello my name is Charles Dent. I am a Los Angeles located actor. I was raised in Lima Ohio and I decided I truly wanted to be an actor at the age of ten however I have been in love with film since the age of four. I did my first production Ramona Quimby at the age of twelve at the Encore Theater. I followed that with musical productions through high school however I did not formally study acting until I got to Bowling Green State University where I minored in theater arts and majored in television production. There I participated in over nine plays and was lead in four of them. I will always say that at Bowing Green I was molded into a real actor. After graduating from Bowling Green I moved to Los Angeles where I studied theater arts at California State University Los Angeles and acting at Play House West and The Mark Tillman school. My goal as an actor is to do the best work I possibly can. I want to create powerful art that in some respect makes a difference and awakens the inner beings of those that witness it; Whether politically socially or emotionally. I feel that is the core of acting, I feel an actors job is to make their audience leave with something more than they possess before coming into the theater. And that is what I wish to do. I want to work with strong directors and create hearty art whether dramatic, comedic or avantgarde.
